    Back to the football. After the first round of group games, who do we think will win the tournament?

    I guess Holland would be the team to go for on form, but they have started with big wins before and fizzled out. I will go for Germany. My initial pick was Brazil but I think they'll fall short now

    Few more stats. Brazil never failed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup and attended in all 20 tournaments since 1930. As far as I know Germany and Italy never failed to qualify as well but the Germans were not allowed to participate in 1950 coz of WW2. They also didn't attend 1930 in Uruguay. Most European nations declined to participate. ( high travel costs... )

    Brazil 20
    Italy 19
    Germany 18
