Default 2014 FIFA World Cup

Hello all!

So the 2014 FIFA World Cup is coming up. Who is everyone cheering for? What players are you excited/not excited to see? Who do you want to see lose?

My team is and will always be

I would that Spain lost, as he lost in the final of the Confederations Cup. I am Brazilian, and honestly, I liked to see Spain losing to the Brazilian team that was not even full.

Of course we'll cheer for Brazil win the 2014 World Cup, but if Brazil does not win, I cheer for a team from Africa.

I'll probably be cheering for Brazil and Argentina. I usually go for the South American teams first.

There may be a slight interest in my home country England, but there seems little point. Even far into the future in Star Trek: Enterprise, Captain Jonathan Archer said to Malcolm Reed: "I hear that England won the World Cup in 1966."

What are the chances they'll introduce bikini-clad Brazilian cheerleaders dancing on the football pitch like they have for beach volleyball?

My team is and will always be
My country isnt a soccer playing country so we dont even dream about making any world cup lol, so i always tend to support by fellow latin american countries. From the other side of the pond i support Spain. But i dont really have a die hard loyalty to any country in particular.
