I don't think that there is an existing 2014 World Cup thread on the site.



With the first game starting today, who do you think will win the opening match between Brazil and Croatia? Also, who do you think will be the overall winners of the tournament? I'm not too sure myself.

I'm hoping Brazil wins their first game.

Anyway, I'm rooting for Portugal (because motherland and blah blah) and I'm rooting for Germany too since they did amazing in the last world cup despite like half of their team or something being injured. Of course, by some stroke of luck, their first games are against eachother. They play the 16th and that is when I will be getting really involved in the World Cup.

My older sister is rooting for Costa Rica to win it.

The World and the European Cup are the only sport events I watch, and mostly because at my house it has always been an incredibly fun event! My mother is Spanish so each World Cup would turn into a fight between me, my brother and my father against my mother and my sister in an Italy VS Spain competition. Now that Ecuador (my brother's wife country) is regularly making it to the World Cup things have gotten even better XD

Sadly, I think Italy is going to perform quite awfully this year, we have a team composed of good-but-old players and unpolished youngsters, all of them quite far from the peak of their careers. I have little doubts about Brazil being the final winner.

This is also going to be a quite sad World Cup from an ethical point of view, and the first one where my general feelings about popular sports being "just a shameful bunch of millionaries playing with a ball" constantly pop up in my head.

P.S. Still... I would love to get to play against Germany once again! I always consider them good rivals and enjoy the matches between our two countries, even though I usually wish people on both sides were a bit more civil about it...

I hope Germany can continue their trend and play another great tournament.
I do not believe they can win tho too many injuries on key positions and a coach that is too deeply involved in the FC Bayern Lobby.

Than again with protest already starting one might wonder if any team is brave/stupid enough to even wanna try to win against Brazil......

I firmly believe that France won't win that FIFA world cup.

You actually made me laugh. I'm not expecting much from England, just like I'm not expecting much from my home country Mexico. I think Brazil will win it, but I actually looking forward for a second maracanazo.

Did anyone see the opening ceremony? It was alright, lots of dancing but they did it much better in South Africa.

C'mon Italy, we can win this shit!

Haha, actually, It'll be tough for England to pass their group. Brazil are clear favorites but Germany stand a chance and I wouldn't write Spain off yet. Of couse I'll be cheering for Italy!

I agree, the ceremony at South Africa 4 years ago was a lot better.

There actually was a thread (same title too) but not sure if just for predictions.
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-853237/2014-fifa-world-cup

Anyways T-minus 45 minutes. I hope the US, Japan or an African team makes it to the semis this time. Otherwise, I just want entertaining matches. For the love of God, no goalless draws please.
