After four years, time has come for Brazil's revenge for its bitter (lopsided?!) loss to France in the 1998 World Cup. But I would like my old favorite Cameroon to lower the upset axe on the heavies.
And it's wait and see for the Sacramento Kings - after that bizzare "assist" by their Serbian center Vlade Divac to Robert Horry who swished the net for the game-winning three-pointer in Game 4 - if their inexperienced side has the stern stuff to bounce back from that bitter loss.
Would Lewis-Tyson steal the show?

Brazil used three coaches and seventy-two players to qualify. They just scraped the last qualifying place in their group. Having said that they are the only country to qualify for every world cup ever. Will they win ? I don't think so.

Brazil always dont do so well in the qualifying rounds, but in the actual tournament they pick up the pace.
As long as England get put out I'll be happy.

Being Irish, I love the nutball that shows up halfway through the movie claiming to own Ireland. He's just too cool.
