    Netherlands have a great chance of getting far this year, and all the African teams are hard to play against.

    They're Dutch...isn't that veird?:

    Goalkeepers: Sander Boschker, Maarten Stekelenburg, Michel Vorm

    Defenders: Vurnon Anite, Khalid Boulahrouz, Edson Braafheid, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, John Heitinga, Joris Mathijsen, André Ooijer, Ron Vlaar, Gregory van dern Wiel

    Midfielders: Ibrahim Afellay, Otman Bakkal, Mark van Bommel, Wout Brama, Orlando Engelaar, Nigel de Jong, David Mendes da Silva, Stijn Schaars, Wesley Sneijder, Rafael van der Vaart, Demy de Zeeuw

    No Van Nistelrooy. They'll get through, but they'll need to create a goal scorer somewhere on this roster.

    As always, great attacking options but not much in the defensive department. They also don't have a very solid target man.

    Robben and Kuyt will do the attacking IMO.

    Persie, Sneijder, Babel, and look for Huntelaar to break out.

    None of the people you listed are known to score lots of goals though. I was thinking more along the lines of Villa, Torres, Rooney, Totti (lol), Messi, etc.

    Eto'o threatens to skip World Cup

    In my opinion, it would be very pitiful if Eto'o does skip the World Cup over something so small. Be a man and show the world what you can do.

    Netherlands and Denmark.

    Holland should be able to power through this group with maximum points from a world class offensive barrage. We all know that their defense isn't strong, but their ability to control the game and maintain possession will relieve most of the pressure. Holland's qualifying group was not strong, but they still won every match with relative ease only allowing two goals in eight matches. Denmark are a strong team that rely on superb teamwork. Their defense looks solid and the offense provides what is needed to get the results they desire. Cameroon on the other hand may be "at home," but their team doesn't have much of a fierce offensive threat outside of world class striker Samuel Eto'o. Aside from a small handful of players this team has too many holes to keep themselves afloat. Japan may even be able to upset Cameroon and make this entire tournament a complete disaster for Les Lions Indomables.

    The first half of the Dutch and Danish match has been so disappointing.

    Also, I say ban the vuvuzelas. The damn things are a nuisance.

    Great. I got another result right on my work's "bolão" (prediction game as we brazilians call it). Now I need a 2-1 Cameroon victory.

    Agreed man. Boring match with Holland and Danmark but what matters is Oranje got the result. :)


    I think Cameroon wins vs. Japan. 2-1
