Well I wanted to confirm this with you but now the "Bauer" Connection is complete :).
How about Germany-Vs-Italy in Final.

Italian Defense will then wear out Germans

True Azzuri

No - it'll be the year for Spain.

PS: 'anonymous' you're not sexist, you're a just plain a*hole.

anonymously throwing out criticism without sharing any useful information - blah to you!

i just dont italy will get that far... and spain is a strong team with a good chance at the win, if they can keep it together!

I know defensive pattern play by Italians is not one of the most liked around the globe. All the same I am lifelong supporter of Italy and Argentina. And I bet the Azzuri's will reach final and win the cup to match their World Cup Glory ...

Go Azzuri!!!

Maybe I am too aware of the Spanish "born to loose" history, I can't see them in the final. I'd love it, but I don't think it will happen. Germany, on the other hand, can probably take advantage of being the sandwich country between the two hosts. I really hope the Italians won't make it, too many Italians around me.

Thankfully, my pool is filled in stages, so we don't have to guess that far in advance.

I can't wait either! I'm missing the opening games though (flying ... ack!). Interesting predictions but I don't think Spain will make it to the finals either and probably Portugal will beat Germany in *the* game of the Cup so for me it's a Portugal vs. Italy final. See you in Austin for the QFs!

Aha - I see unsui has very good taste in futbol (I don't mean the italian team - well, they're champions, ok).

I insist it'll be the year for Spain.
