I want peoples idea of how Australia will go?

Obviously France is a game where we just need to try and limit the damage, Denmark is a game we can draw if we play to our best and Peru's high world ranking has been enhanced by their home record, in Russia they will be doing it tough to score a goal.

With that obviously Denmark is the main match for us to target.

Do not jump off Belgium for the semis Carioca. I have them meeting Brazil in the quarters and if there golden generation pull their finger out and do their best they are capable of the upset.

My query is if they get injuries. If they have their best 10 on the field in that quarter final they can beat a mentally vulnerable Brazil.

Why are Australians so rubbish at soccer? Practically every fly-blown dump of a country in the world produces far better soccer players than we do.

Obvious - we are a small population to start with. Then most of the real talent goes to much better games like AFL, NRL & Rugby. Only the left over no talent sissy boys end up playing soccer !

world game.. cost little to play soccer anywhere in the world, we are just a pimple on it, our best player only got into the top league in the world (epl) by playing in a bottom team an winning a promotion.

a league is so far down in the eyes of over seas scouts its hard to get talent into good teams over seas making our soccer roos perform,   the women on the other hand are world bests Big smile

Poor folks can get easy access to soccer and have strong motivation to succeed. Other countries have less sports competing for attention.
 
 
Spoilt Oz brats and talented sports kids rarely play the game here. It's up to the talent pool from helicopter mums, "gentle"  dads and immigrants to make up Oz numbers.

Now for my serious thoughts. I think soccer is by far the most skilful of all the football codes. For me, that still doesn't make it a great game to watch. Find it too frustrating - & the low scoring nature of the game often results in dodgy outcomes. I would like to see bigger goals so that the team who has more shots is more likely to win. I think AFL is the fairest code for the same reason. Yes I know, not going too happen - why change the most popular code in the world !
Re Australia's soccer players - I think a few on here are being a touch harsh. We have done remarkably well "considering" over the past decade or two. The talent pool is low in numbers compared to most.

As a soccer nation we don't instil the close control foot skills needed to succeed at the top level as a senior player . One of our most skilful players , Tom Rogic came from a futsal background and at an older age . 

1. France 
2. Germany

Germany will win

WE can win a game if we attack relentlessly.
We arent rubbish at soccer anymore

Were 20 years ago, but when they stopped chipping it around and started attacking, became a better team
Also got wogs in the side. It was once just anglos.

Greece has been shocking at the world cup. so thats the wog theory out the door as a contradiction.

Anything can happen, its that kind of sport

its the only time I watch soccer.
Its the elite of the elite, all playing at the same time

Aussies love being the underdogs anyway, so surprise wins are on the cards

also wont be shocked if Germany hammers everyone.

brazil is the usual danger. they eat footballs for breakfast and probably sleep with footballs.

Too many teams, so an awful lot of filler. Fact is these days the top Euro clubs have stronger teams than even the better international sides. Not really the pinnacle of the sport anymore, imo.

I love it because the best team doesn't always win.

An inferior team that has less possession and less shots on goal, can win if they take their chances. This is the beauty of the World Game. One moment of brilliance, or one moment of madness can be all the difference.

I backed Russia with Crownbet. They have a special where:

  • Place a bet on any World Cup Group Stage match. Single match markets only.
  • Receive a $90 Bonus Bet for each Group Stage match the Socceroos win.
  • Minimum Bet $1.

The highlight of tonight will be seeing if FIFA or Putin are running tonight's show.

Sepp Blatter is banned from all matches, yet Putin wants him as his special guest in his box tonight.

Will he be allowed in?

I think Vlad will have the final say.
