You lucky shite! I had tickets to the Orlando games -- work interfered , and I only got to go to 3 of the 5 games, but it rocked.

ETA: I also used to go to the Tampa Bay Mutiny games when I lived there.

Brazil, no team can compare with them.

They have the players, they have the tactics, and they have consistency.

England will do well, but I do see some silly mistakes costing them. I also expect the media add extra pressure on Rooney to perform every game as if he is the only player England have.

The most important factor for England is getting Lampard and Gerrard to gel, if they start playing well together then we can roll over most teams.

Yeah both players are good attacking midfielders though, and I worry that if England got caught on the break and they both were up for the attack it wouldn't be too pretty. Ledley King was damn impressive as a defensive/holding midfielder in a couple of games, if we could squeeze him in there somehow our midfield could be the best in the tournament IMO.

Sorry, no spares! FIFA is really strict this time. All tickets are personnalized and IDs will be checked at entry to stadiums.

Anyways, I managed to get two of the matches I wanted.
ITALY - USA June 17th in Kaiserslautern
SWEDEN - ENGLAND June 20th in Koln

I'm psyched!!!
And as an added bonus, my wife is getting us tickets to the Champion's League final at the Stade de France. (she works in the Paris mayor's office) 2006 is shaping up to be a good year for me!!

Oh, BTW I live in France, and most of the experts here are predicting Brazil will destroy any and all opposition, including France, England, Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, Argentina, and every other team in the competition.

I agree.

Sweden - England is going to be a draw, it nearly always is when we play them (at least 4 in the last 5 if i remember rightly, we've played them a lot)

I wouldn't call Germany or Spain worthy opposition to Brazil, probably not France these days. They have the same problem as Arsenal do, their only good player is Henry.

Agreed. Speaking of Arsenal's problem, Sol Campbell had a bad game yesterday. He better get his game back if he wants to play the World Cup.
