I'm for France...

Too many Caribbean players in that team for me not to be for them..

I'll be for Uruguay. Suarez and Lodeiro play for Ajax

Suarez... mark that name... he's certainly a player to look out for at the WC.

The first game was pretty tame but that post by the SA player near the end was exciting enough.

I'm gonna have to take France in the next game and I do hope that awful horn noise will not be droning on for the whole game. It was a relief when the first game ended just to make it stop.

They should do the world a favour and ban these immediately for all time and all sports.

Have you ever sat in a stadium near somebody with one? :bash:

Yeah, I'm an AJAX fan as well. Suarez is really good.

first game was awesome
nice goals but its pretty ok that south africa vs mexicowas tie (1:1)

the mexicans have - in my opinion - the better players esp. in first half

france vs uruguay
my tip
2 : 1

sorry - france is my team tonight

is this thread supposed to be serious or more light hearted? -hopefully i am taking it seriously enough but not to serious ……… ahhh zazza

do we do a list who made the best tips?

I said France to win 2-0 earlier... I do like the look of Uruguay too...

I think this game will be a cracker.... or I hope it will.

Maybe 2-1 France.....

Oh I don't bloody know....

I'm off to watch.

I'm hoping Uruguay can hold on another 15 minutes, and that Henri doesn't use his hands this time.

I reckon France will lose this one.

Really looking forward to tomorrows match between the US and England, i'm not sure i'd want a ticket for it though, if there's one match that would be a terror target it would be that one.

First red card of the tournament, Uruguay.

Well first 2 games were draws.... If you did that as a double at the bookies it would have been pretty good odds I'm sure.

Oh well....

The world cup Really starts tomorrow anyway

The stadium authorities are going to have to do something about those horns, ban them, everyone I've spoken to tonight is saying it's spoiling their enjoyment of the games.

Uruguay did well to hold on, especially a man down. The French performance ? I was quite disappointed, they seemed a bit lethargic, no sense of urgency.

It was exactly the same during the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations, there is no chance the horns will be banned - it's a part of their culture. Bloody annoying though!

Decent start to the WC but it only really starts tomorrow

Game on.

Changed my mind at last moment, I know:bnghd:, and changed my prediction from draw to France win, damn!

And not sure about tomorrows apparent line up:

A. Cole

I would have played Rooney up front alone with Gerrard just behind in 'the hole'.
I would then play Joe Cole on the left.

Rooney himself said he'd prefer to play up front by himself, but I have faith in Capello.
He got us there very convincingly and I'm sure he knows what he's doing.

Im sure i read that Looney likes teaming up with Heskey, as he's more of a work horse/feeder/play maker, that enables Wayne to Score more..

Games where ok. I watched the RSA Vs Mexico and the last 10 minutes of Uraguay Vs France...

Anyway, hope theres more goals tomorrow.

Ohh I think my team did not play to the fullest of their abilities. !
... but oh well, it is good anyway..considering also one man down. :bnghd: Definitely the 2nd time was better than the first 45 mins.

So well done!

Did any other Aussies hear the Mexican commentator in the background of our guys talking? He was going absolutely insane, lol!!

Think they were sitting in front of us

Just a little reminder for those with a heart for the green and gold.
Go Australia.

And just so you know what the Aussie dressing room is like.
