Prediction time

With every World Cup, there comes a point when a real fan must make their predictions, and in the process hand everyone a big box of eggs to throw in their face when these predictions turn out to be wrong.

Here are my predictions:


The winner should be Spain.  This is theirs to lose.  If they do mess it up, it will be Holland.  Failing that, a miracle could happen, and England wins.

I don’t think Argentina will win it, but they could, if everything aligns perfectly.

David Villa (Spain)
