^ GOD awful both of them (Shakira 2010 effort is far better). Coca Cola's "The World is ours" is easily the best WC 2014 song because they know how to to market a product properly

Shakira's song for the 2010 World Cup still remains one of the best songs.

Shakira - Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) (The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup™ Song)



K'naan's song Wavin' Flag was a great song as well for the 2010 World Cup.

EA sports run a simulation using their 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil game, running all 32 teams going through the group stage and top 2 of each group heading to the knockout rounds. The result was not surprising but rather unexpected.

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

I've not seen anything in the 3 warm up games that indicates ENG will go far in this tournament and nothing to suggest Roy knows his best 11. The only good news really is Italy & Uruguay haven't looked in great shape either and Italy 1-1 Luxembourg made me

I would like to see a side set out to hold the ball in the middle and attack on both flanks with Gerrard/Henderson protecting the defence, Wilshere in the hole using his passing and driven runs to split Italy open and Sterling wide right with Lallana two foot ability n skill on the ball leaving their right back wrong footed at every turn on the left wing. Hopefully Sturridge will not waste his chances either After that game you can bring the likes of Barkley, Rooney and if fit Chamberlain back into the fold.

I expect however this awful flat 4-3-3 (not even a 4-3-3 really) that brings out nothing in his attack and exposes our defence.

Is Wilshere even fit enough to start a game yet?

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

8-0 yesterday for France against a very weak Jamaican team.
It means nothing but it's still pleasant and it's not a bad thing after the bad news with Ribery.

He looks pretty fit in fairness but I wouldn't want him no for 90 minutes. Let Italy tire and unleash Barkley

World cup ceremonies are rarely very interesting but this one was bad in a fascinating way

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

I switched off the opening show to play FIFA , as for the game Brazil were very lucky...Never been a penalty and probably a foul in the build up for goal number 3 but Croatia's 2nd was rightly disallowed he jumped into the keeper.

Should of been 1-1 really.

Mmh. Interesting. It would be all sorts of awesome (though, on the other hand, I'd be torn because it would be a bit tragic for Brazil). However, at the moment, I'd bet good money that Germany won't win the World Cup as their defense is just too weak.

Tonight's game was actually pretty good for an opening match. Quite lively. I'm glad Oscar made the 3-1 because it would have looked pretty bad otherwise, considering the penalty that really wasn't one. And it was a great goal to boot.
I won't be able to watch Mexico vs. Cameroon but I'm looking forward to Spain vs. Netherlands.

England will have a tough time against Italy, sadly enough (yes, I support two unsympathetic teams). It's unfortunate that this is England's first match. It's psychologically rather difficult to start into the tournament with a defeat. With Uruguay also being in the group I'm not sure they'll make it out of the group phase.
