European World Champion

We’re 8 days from the final of World Cup 2006, but there’s one certainty: the new World Champion will be a European country.

The quarter finals sure had a surprising outcome for me as I expected Argentina to play the final. But Germany got past them despite trailing 0-1 early in the second half. An equaliser in the 80th minute and a penalty shootout eliminated a great team. And France put an end to Brazil’s road to the final with a 1-0 victory. An early end for an awful playing Brazilian team.

That leaves us with these four teams: Italy, Germany, Portugal and France. My bet for the final? Italy versus Portugal.
