Bold Ass World Cup Predictions

once every four years, I get excited about soccer. that time is nigh, as the World Cup is just hours away from kicking off in South Africa. here are my picks for the nations who will make it out of the group stage:

France
Mexico

Argentina
Nigeria

England
Slovenia

Germany
Australia

Netherlands
Cameroon

Italy
Paraguay

Brazil
Portugal

Spain
Chile

Brazil to beat England for 3rd place
Spain to beat Argentina for the World Cup

I had good karma with Spain, two years ago, when I picked them to win the European Championships. they are just as good now, as they were then, so I see no need to jump off the bandwagon.
if you’re looking for a sleeper pick, how about the Netherlands. I’ve always liked their orange jerseys…

musicians I like, whose nations are in the World Cup:
Tom Warrior (Celtic Frost) – Switzerland
King Diamond – Denmark
Max Cavalera (Sepultura, Soulfly) – Brazil
Tom Araya (Slayer) – Chile
Rodrigo y Gabriela – Mexico
Atari Teenage Riot – Germany

hopefully, this World Cup will be better known for it’s stellar on-field play, rather than the rash of injuries, that have already knocked some of the world’s best players out of the tournament.
