nadiencendia (83) I think Brazil has very good chances of winning: they don't play well, but they are really strong and difficult to beat. Argentina and Spain may have their chances, and Italy is always there, no matter how boring they are to watch. Also, in every World Cup there is an underdog, let's see who is it this time...

BadMrFrosty (56) Oh and kudos to atrapat for using the phrase "I couldn't care less" in its proper form. I swear baby Jesus weeps everytime someone moron says "they could care less" when trying to express their indifference to something :)

exotics4me (463) I'm not a big soccer fan, but do usually watch the World Cup. I'm thinking either Brazil or Italy wins it. As an American, I found my interest in the World Cup by watching a documentary DVD (Brazil Street Soccer) about the World Cup and how much it means to a country like Brazil. I was almost shocked to see kids as young as 2 playing soccer and doing the Brazilian chants. That's passion we don't see in much else these days and fueled my interest in the tournament though I have very little working knowledge of the game and its rules. It seems to be a much more popular sport in America now than when I was a kid, as we focused on baseball, football, basketball and to a lesser extent hockey.

On a related note, a former co-worker from Nigeria said he never got into American football until watching a similar documentary DVD about American football called The Perfect Effort.

messmer (137) I picked Germany because that's where I was born .. they might have the worst team ever, who knows? I know I could care less, with a little snicker going in good fun BadMrFrosty's way! :-) It bothers me too, by the way.

Here in North America it's awfully hard to keep up interest in soccer because so little of the quality stuff is shown on TV, except for the world cup.

It's either football or baseball or basketball in the U.S. Here in Canada it's hockey, hockey and hockey! :-)

Denner (233) Now, now, now - please - it's the most WORLDWIDE sport event - AND even the USA has now great players - so how come this: could not care less...ect.

Still from the european point of view: the deal is quite open this year - a lot of countries could in fact win this.
My bets:

Germany
France
Brazil
and even:
little old Denmark (do not laugh)

GCode (101) I find it weird that the Americans here are disregarding football when it comes to sports. Ummm...football is like the largest sport worldwide, while I know it's not extremely popular in the USA I find it strange that this is what is said by the few from the USA about the World Cup. While I do not watch football from the usa or from other countries in the off seasons of the World Cup, I do watch the World Cup. I do not know much about the actual sport and the individual players or countries' teams, I do know the countries listed in the poll are usually pretty popular to win. I've enjoyed watching Germany play in the past and know their team is usually a contender; plus I usually root for them during the cup. I may not be of German descent, I do enjoy their football team so I'm picking them to win.

careylowell (18) I consider myself well-read and have lived for long spells in England and Denmark. But the global madness that the World Cup inspires continues to baffle!
I can't picture soccer/football appealing to the average American as..
A.) So many matches are decided by kick-offs at the end of a score-less games.
B.)Players writhing on the ground supposedly due to injuries from the opposing team. This bad-acting is to encourage the ref to red-flag their opponents. Yawn.
