It seems that I messed up with respect to group A; however, it is not over yet: Germany's defense for the first time in 50 years has a lot of holes. I still believe that Germany will finish first. However, for Poland to advance, Poland would have to at least tie Germany, and 'make certain' that Germany will have to beat Ecuador in their last group game. When it comes to second place, it may come a goal difference.
However, it is more likely, that Ecuador will take second place.
As to the group E, I do believe that the team USA will advance, and that the goal difference will decide who will advance from the first or second place. Regardless of from which place, the team USA will advance, either in the 1/8th or the quarterfinal, the team USA will beat Brazil again.
Ido believe that Netherlands’s national team is overrated, and that the Ivory Coast will finish just behind Argentina to advance .

I would like to interest you in a prediction competition for the World Championships in soccer that will take place this year in Germany (to get list of the participants, please go to FIFA’s web site).
The deadline for the prediction of the group phase is February 28, 2006.
I will enter my final prediction of the 16-teen 1/8th finalists today.
Group A: 1. Germany 2. Poland
Group B: 1. England 2. Sweden
Group C: 1. Argentina 2. Ivory Coast
Group D: 1. Mexico 2. Portugal
Group E: 1./2. USA Italy ex quoi
Group F: 1. Brazil 2. Australia
Group G: 1. France 2. Togo
Group H: 1. Spain 2. Tunisia

This is the 1st prediction -- the next prediction will be after the Group play is over, you will have to predict entire playoffs.

For every right prediction in the group phase, you will get plus 1 point; if the team that you predicted to advance to the playoffs will place fourth, you will lose one point. If you will get all the first place teams right, you will get 10 extra points; and if ‘only’ all teams that will advance to the playoffs, you will get 5 extra points.
For every right prediction in the playoffs, you will get 3 points, and only one penalty point for every wrong prediction.
If you predict the top four right, you will get 7 extra points.

Please post the prediction and e-mail to dekolak@yahoo.com or me
Thank you
