Me too, besides my vested interests in this thread. They've been the most consistently good team in the tournament thus far. I think they'll beat them too, barring any cuntish ref decisions (which I won't rule out).

Pretty much every game in the 2nd round had the same story though, plucky underdogs play out of their skins but the better (traditionally/on paper) team take their chance or two and beat them. So hopefully that changes in the Brazil game... Cracking set of fixtures for the quarters though

Have changed my allegiances after pretty much every round of matches but still would like to see Germany to win it, been rooting for them in every tournament since '08 cos of their football. Would also like to see Argentina do it for Messi to get his World Cup (if they keep on keeping on as they have it'd go down as Messi's World Cup too); Holland cos of Van Gaal and Van Persie, or Colombia cos they're the best team in it, underdogs, small footballing nation, etc.... and the money.

I'm pretty sure I got Colombia in the sweep, yeah?!

Casino, so you're supporting 4 out of the 8 teams left? hedging your bets there.

Yeah but I've been supporting them since the start! I don't really care who wins at this stage... probably not Brazil though... or fucking France (even though they're the most likeable French team since '98). Fuck France

I think France will do Germany. Especially if Neur plays his sweeper role again - that's an accident waiting to happen.

I want France to win since ive money on them but would settle for Costa Rica or Colombia. Belgium wouldnt be bad either since id win 50 quid. Those other 4 can fuck off

that I did. they didnt score that many goals in qualifying and with Falcao out (who scored over half of their goals) they would struggle. wasnt that wild an assumption
