The Soccer Thread

Yes, it's back. The 13280925389075239802nd Soccer Thread with a twist.



Well, it's easy to understand what this thread is about. For now, let's talk about the fabled Confederations Cup, which takes pl;ace this days in South America.

I saw some terrible performance from Italy (losing 0-3 against Brazil and 0-1 against Egypt!?). Spain on the other hand are looking very, veryy good.

The semifinals are:

Spain - USA
    I think Spain will have an easy time. I never liked Spain too much, but now they're in top form. And USA always sucked at soccer. My prediction: 4-1

Brazil - South Africa
    It will be even easier for Brazil. The Sout Africans have a mediocre team, and their only famous player is Benny McCarthy (and he plays at the weak English side Blackburn). So I say an easy 5-0 for Brazil.

Egypt is great team with great players, like Mohamed Zidan who plays in Borussia, or Mido in Middlesbrough, etc... They also deserved to take a point of 3 again Brazil.

As for Italy, they sux latly man! I never liked them anyway...

Actually USA is pretty stable team, but they don't stand a chang vs Spain, they are the European champs... I never liked Spain as well... 4-1 is too much...

Brazil - South Africa


Brazil has some hard time nowdays, at least I see it like this... SA were pretty nice team, but years ago! There is always at least 1 strong african team on every cup, but not SA in this case... Victory for Brazil, 5-0, again is too much...

I dunno about Egypt. They have a good team if they won the last two African Championships, but this shouldn't mean much for European teams.

Borussia Dortmund is just an avergae German team now, and Middlesbrough relegated.

And I'm a fan of Italy (they are my favourites just after Romania).

Remember Senegal (World cup in Korea and Japan?) they owned Sweden, pretty easy... there is always one strong african team, this year it's Egypth (for the 2010 world cup too)!

Anyway the final is Spain - Brazil

That's not always true. No African team was strong at the World CUp in 2006 (Ghana passed the group stage and lost 0-3 against Brazil, not very impressive).

I agree Egypt will be the strongest African team at the World Cup in 2010, but I simply know they will be eliminated by Switzerland or by anotjer similar team. Like Spain, for that matter.

And perhaps 5-0 for Brazil against SA is to much, but Spain will crush USA. I never considered them strong, they're like Bolton, Portsmouth or Fulham in club football: between medium and mediocre.

Switzerland LOL Don't be ridiculous, first it depends on the groups... I expect more.

And really Italy sux, I mean Bulgaria did 0-0 with them LOL! And we got 0-0 with Georgia and 2-2 with Montenegro What a shame...

P.S.

It's going to be sooo cool if Romania or Lithuania can go to the world cup, instead of France

Switzerland is better than USA, and the Americans crushed Egypt. And Spain seem to lack a 'mental' maturity, they will embarras themselves at the World Cup. IMHO Brazil and England have the biggest chances to triumph in South Africa.

And it would be nice to have Romania and Bulgaria in the same group at the World Cup. It's hard to believe the two teams will qualify, but...

I like how FIFA (the computer game) insists that Romania and Bulgaria are rival teams. I would rather hate Hungary, but our team seem to have no enemy.

You still got a chance, but I can't say the same for us... we have no loss but too many draws... still we have some hypothetic chanse, if we have only winns till the end and Irland start to lose more ofter (Maybe if Italy and Georgia beats them )

Hungary sux at football to much to be a threat to anyone... I don't think that Romania and Bulgaria are rival teams, imo there is even some respect between the teams.

Ghana have a reason to hate Bulgaria, our biggest win is against them (10-0 LOL).

America beating Spain 2-0 is major bribe.

But don't worry we'll win this one again.

It was a pretty big surprise if you ask me. This was Spain's first defeat since autumn 2006, when they lost against Romania.

I must say however you can never be sure with a competition like the Confederations Cup. If this was a World Cup match, I wouldn't like to be the American goalie.

Spain couldn't stay undefeated forever,they had to lose sooner or later.As for the other semi-final,I don't think the South Africans can win against  Brazil,even though they're playing on home soil.Brazil will beat the U.S. in the final and take the cup ( I think).

as much as I hate to say... the united states are a very strong team... mainly in the mental way... I hate them a lot... but what can I do? I really want them to win the cup to show the world that the concacaf is not the worst area in the world... here are some strong teams, if usa wins the cup concacaf will have 2 champions on the history of the cup Mexico was the first one, about the USA, they play italian style of football... with just strong defense... and a very good counter attack...

Brazil won 1-0 against South Africa,with a late goal from Dani Alves,so the final will be United States vs.Brazil.I really didn't expect the U.S. to be in the final,but I hope it will be an entertaining final,with many goals
