    I want Portugal and Brazil to go through, which is likely. Then i want Portugal to win, they've got a great line-up on players.

    Easy group for both Brazil and Portugal, they should go through. I root for Brazil always (right after Germany) so I'm hoping they go far. :)

    Dunga is actually doing a great job as a head coach. Brazilians are asking him to call Neymar and/or Ganso the two young sensations from Santos, but I doubt that will happen, Dunga likes to stick to his players and he won the Confederations Cup, Americas Cup and the Qualifying Tournament.

    That's just a report. I am not sure how credible the source is.

    Portugal names 24 men:

    Goalkeepers: Beto (Porto), Daniel Fernandes (Iraklis), Eduardo (Braga)

    Defenders: Fabio Coentrao (Benfica), Paulo Ferreira (Chelsea), Ricardo Carvalho (Chelsea), Ze Castro (Deportivo La Coruna), Bruno Alves (Porto), Rolando (Porto), Ricardo Costa (Lille), Duda (Malaga), Pepe (Real Madrid), Miguel (Valencia)

    Midfielders: Tiago (Atletico Madrid), Deco (Chelsea), Raul Meireles (Porto), Nani (Manchester United), Miguel Veloso (Sporting Lisbon), Pedro Mendes (Sporting Lisbon)

    Forwards: Simao Sabrosa (Atletico Madrid), Hugo Almeida (Werder Bremen), Liedson (Sporting Lisbon), Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Danny (Zenit St Petersburg)

    That's 10 defenders for those of you scoring at home. Pepe is included to take him out for a kick of the tires as he hasn't played since before New Year's.

    Today is the big day. Dunga will release the list in 23 minutes. Everyone has an opinion. We joke that in Brazil we have 190 million coaches.

    Pepe is Brazilian as well, but if you didn't want to claim him, I'd understand. They also called in a couple of Cape Verdeans (Nani and someone else, I just looked but forgot already), a Venezuelan (Danny), and a Canadian (Daniel Fernandes). Makes me wonder who has the most international squad. Its probably going to be Portugal or France.

    Yeah. Forgot about him. ;)

    My bad about the time of Dunga's list release. We will have to wait 42 more minutes.

    A well...uh...It has announced the Ivory Coast preliminary roster:

    Goalkeepers: Vincent Angban (ASEC Abidjan, Ivory Coast), Boubacar Barry (Lokeren, Belgium), Aristides Zogbo (Maccabi Netanya, Israel), Daniel Yeboah (SEC Abidjan, Ivory Coast).

    Defenders: Souleymane Bamba (Hibernian, Scotland), Arthur Boka (VB Stuttgart, Germany), Benjamin Brou Angoua (Valenciennes, France), Guy Demel (Hamburg SV, Germany), Emmanuel Eboue (Arsenal, England), Abdoulaye Meite (West Bromwich Albion, England), Steve Gohouri (Wigan Athletic, England), Siaka Tiene (Valenciennes, France), Kolo Toure (Manchester City, England).

    Midfielders: Emerse Fae (Nantes, France), Jean-Jacques Gosso Gosso(Monaco, France), Abdelkader Keita (Galatasaray, Turkey), Emmanuel Kone(International Curtea Arges, Romania), Gervais Yao Kouassi (Lille, France), Christian Koffi Ndri (Sevilla, Spain), Cheik Ismael Tiote (Twente Enschede, Holland), Yaya Toure (Barcelona, Spain), Gilles Yapi Yapo (Young Boys Berne, Switzerland), Didier Zokora (Sevilla, Spain).

    Forwards: Kanga Akale (Racing Lens, France), Aruna Dindane (Racing Lens, France), Seydou Doumbia (Young Boys Berne, Switzerland), Didier Drogba (Chelsea, England), Salomon Kalou (Chelsea, England), Bakary Kone (Olympique Marseille, France).

    That's two keepers from Ivory Coast, so my Aussie comment looks pretty safe. As for the Ivory Coast, I like. Portugal will have a short stay in South Africa.
