    That Brazilian team looks immensely strong. 6 of my favorite soccer players are on the roster…I can’t wait ’till the World Cup kicks off.

    Franco, I have the same sentiments. I just don’t know why they preferred Lehmann instead of Kahn as their main goalkeeper. Germany wouldn’t have gone through the finals in World Cup 2002 had it not for Kahn.

    Wom, Brazil remain as the world’s favorite team. We just don’t know how they’ll fare during this World Cup. The ball is round and there’s a lot of strong teams to reckon.

    Brazil remains very formidable with new and upcoming talents like Ronaldinho and Baptista and it won’t be a great surprise if they win it again for the nth time. I like the chances of England though with Gerrard, Lampard and Terry providing great winning experience and if Wayne Rooney’s foot can heal miracoulously fast, then England is a team to atch out for.

    Did you watch the Barca-Arsenal game live? I did. It almost gave me a heart attack seeing Barca play catch up. But the best team eventually won no. Whew!

    Rene, while it almost gave you a heart attack, the UEFA Champions League finals left me with a broken heart. No, not because Arsenal lost – Barca is my team anyway. I was so stupid to forget the schedule of the final match.
