Who will win..?

Filed Under World Cup 

cannavaroAre you ready for the British Soccer Diva World Cup competition?

Last time around Fabio Cannavaro had the honour of lifting the World Cup for his beloved Italy. Fast forward four years and we excitedly find ourselves closer to another mouth-watering tournament.

The passion, the glory, the unpredictability and despair make-up some of the greatest sporting memories of our lifetime. Villains and heroes are waiting to be crowned. Are you ready? I can’t take the wait much longer.

Can England really do it? Will Brazil stand in everyone’s way again? How about the Italians and their incredible ability to do well in big tournaments? Is this Holland’s time? What about the reliable Germans? Are the U.S.A. ready to cause a huge upset? Will an Asian country rise and take it all? Can an African nation win the World Cup? Is it possible that we could see a Messi vs Ronaldo final, or will Rooney get his revenge on the winker? I can’t stand it.

This is a competition that unites the world and the world could sure use a month off this summer! We can’t wait until the economy, the politics and the daily grind of life comes to an incredible halt. We are ready for what is undoubtedly the most anticipated sporting event in the universe. How many times have we all played out scoring the winning goal for our country in the World Cup? Even girls do that boys!

When you post your comments to this story, please also include the 2 teams you think will qualify from each group to the knockout stages. Make it clear who you think will finish 1st and 2nd. You get 2 points for the top team and 1 point for the group runner-up. We’d also like for you to pick a “dark horse” team. You only get one choice so make it a good one. If your “dark horse” team makes it, you get a bonus 3 points. And finally, to make this puppy even more fun, we’d like you to pick the two teams you think will make it to the final. You will get 5 points for each team. Once we move to the knockout phase, we will then introduce another round of picks to the competition.

The world waits. Fans of football live in hope. Boyhood dreams are waiting to be fulfilled. Who is your money on..?

    Lady Yid is confident about doing the double this year. Funnily enough, I was chatting with someone yesterday about an England vs Argentina final, and how sweet it would be for England to get justice, especially as Maradona is their coach in this tournie! Wouldn’t that be a slice of nice…

    Share our competition with your mates! Get them involved. It’s all about bragging rights…

    Good luck!

    It is actually quite difficult tp pick group A and G, but i took a gamble. Host nation power to see them through. Now with Drogba back i think they will be going through.

    The summer transfer window is like waiting for Christmas. You have an entire list of things you want, you hope you get them all and in the end, even if just a few things on your list make it under the tree, you're fine with that!

    I fancy Arsenal to win the Community Shield against Chelsea in a few weeks. #factsonly
