    I keep rooting for the teams that won the last World Cup so it's France. :p

    Will be interesting if Japan or Korea will go into the Semi-Finals. :eek:

    Asian team in Semis? Whoa.. ;)

    Yup France definitely has a good chance, but my heart always goes with England. If only there was a Star Wars XI :D

    Will the team that win the trophy 3 times get to keep it forever like Brazil?

    Keep it forever? I'm not sure if there's such a reward. There are a few teams who have won it thrice like Italy. Brazil is the only team which won it 4 times.

    Usually the winner will keep the trophy for 4 years before it is used for the next world cup.

    If anybody knows more about this, or knows the correct info, pls correct me :)

    With the first trophy in the era of Pele, Brazil won it 3 times (consercative?) and so keep the trophy forever. It's depicted on their logo and my dad say it's solid gold. :eek:

    Think France must win this year and in 2006 if they will get Brazil's luck!

    Have a feeling that SPAIN will be the black horse this round.
    As for Asian teams, I suppose Korea will be the stronger of the 3 (China the weakest) judging by the couple of warm up match - the Koreans did quite impressively.

    Now Jazz dude, if there's a StarWars XI, the Jedis will surely win the World Cup hands down Whahahaha!!

    DE - Haha I saw that clip too..very realistic though. Size does matter. ;)

    As for Holland not in this year's WC, I think it's surprising but not a heart-wrenching shock. Every team has at one time not been in the WC except for Brazil. And that includes Italy, England, Argentina etc..
