I think that Ivory Coast will beat Brazil tonight - putting an end to suggestions that the African teams have done poorly. They looked strong against Portugal and I think if Sven gets his men to move further up the pitch then it'll be a great game

The surprise would be New Zealand beating Italy, though. Ivory Coast beating Brazil wouldn't shock me if the Portugal game is anything to go by.

Looking forward to Brazil vs Ivory coast tonight. Think that the other two games won't really be worth watching. Paraguay and Italy to both win but make hard work of it

I hope you're back on these boards this evening after the Ivorians have been firmly put in their place. Brazil are now brutally efficient - no more joga bonito (after 1982 disappointment), they just play to win!

Looking forward to the Ivory coast Brazil game. Just been listening to radio 5 Live. Cannot believe all the negative comments about England. I have seen every game so far, and I still think England are the best team at the world cup. Dont forget they qualified with games to spare. It seems that anytime a result does not go Englands way, out come the knives. Is this an english thing? We should be heaping praise upon them for what they have achieved so far. And I believe England are the best team there. And Capello and co, they should be giving them the praise and support they deserve. Sitting down with the players and telling them how good they are is worth 2 goals at least. Lets not forget the TV panels as well, has anyone heard any praise or support from them? They should be ashamed. The players could be seeing and hearing all this negative rubbish. SO, COME ON, GUYS GIVE THEM A BIT OF SUPPORT FOR A CHANGE..

Anyone feel they know which way the Slovakia v Paraguay match will go? Their first group games offered little of interest and few hints that one of them could get farther than the first knockout round.

I think New Zealand have a chance to get a draw with Italy. The Italians looked awful in their last match and I'm hoping that the Kiwis can get an early score and force the Italians to do the one thing that they don't like: attack. Don't get me wrong I still wouldn't put money on NZ but the lack of a top shelf playmaker like Pirlo leave this already dour Italy looking pretty poor going forward. They only managed a draw in that first match due to a bad keeper error (hardly a shock at this World Cup).

I'm also looking forward to the last game (the first two look boring on paper) and hope that the Ivory Coast test a Brazil that seems determined to move ever further away from Pele et al's beautiful football.

I say:
Slovakia 1-1 Paraguay
Italy 1-0 New Zealand
Brazil 2-2 Ivory Coast

Beating a relatively weak North Korean side 2-1 is hardly what I call efficient. Wouldn't you agree?

The Ivory Coast are in with a chance. Should be a cracker.

Im fully prepared to be slated, but ill do it anyway. My starting 11 for Slovenia is :

James
Johnson Terry Upson Cole
Barry
Lennon Lamps Cole

Stevie G
Rooney

Most likely to be 442 though, so i honestly would drop Rooney, he doesnt like the system, and good as he is if Capello is going to play that system we need a striker who is willing to play it. i would like it up like this :

James
Johnson Terry Upson Cole
Lennon Stevie G Barry Cole
Crouch Defoe

Ivory Coast won't park the bus North Korea style, and defending is the Ivorians' weak point. Brazil will win by at least a couple of goals. The North Korea game has NOTHING to do with today's fixture. I am keeping a list of all you Brazil knockers, so I can call you all out at the end of that match.

-------------------------------------------------

Defending isn't exactly Brazil's strong point either. I'm not knocking Brazil, but you're acting like the Brazil win is an absolute certainty. Nothing is certain in this WC. I think England/France/Spain results can testify to that. Besides, I'm just pointing out facts. The North Korea match does have something to do with today's fixture. Brazil knows that it should have beaten the North Koreans comfortably so there's that added pressure in today's game. Ivory Coast have a chance and will hopefully be a somewhat decent game which yields a number of goals. Not saying that Ivory Coast are going to win. Just saying that they have a chance and Brazil have to be careful.

Frank Ribery made an unscheduled appearance in the middle of Domenechs live interview on TV. The player got quite emotional saying all the reports about bust ups between him and others are rubbish. Lizarazu was interviewing and criticised them both for being closed to the press, until Domenech reminded him that Frances world cup winning captain boycotted the press completly in 2000. It's like watching a soap. Riveting.

You're a joker, aren't you? The Brazil under Dunga is known for it's defensive solidity (11 goals conceded in 18 qualifiers - best in CONMEBOL). They are a pragmatic side (Mourinho style), and solidity at the back is seen as a must! You obviously don't know what you are talking about - in their last 7 fixtures, they have only conceded 2!

Slovakia 1-3 Paraguay
Italy 1-0 New Zealand
Brazil 2-1 Ivory Coast


This Brazilian team have only conceed about 30 goals to 110 scored, can't see them losing. Defensively they are very strong. Italy will fluke the New Zealand game and Paraguay will become lots of peoples favourite team after today...

Im really enjoying watching England play total rubbish guys. Dont get me wrong Ive got lots of English buddies but I cant be listening to them for the next 30 years if you did win. But on a serious note, why cant you guys get a coach who will play people in their best positions. I mean seriously. If you are going to play 4-4-2 then why dont you guys have 2 wide players playing in the wide positions and Gerrard n Lampard in the middle? I am completely baffled because had u guys played Milner and Lennon or even Wright Philips then I really believe things would have been different in the Algeria game. And why havent you got Stuart Downing with you. Hes possibly the only player you guys have who has a left foot and you leave him at home. Strange choices ahve ruined your world cup as far as Im concerned. And Heskey, as good as he is at holding the ball up, cant head a ball or hit the target with either foot. Cmon, surely big lanky (sorry peter) must be wondering how he cant get a game. At least he can play!!!

I accidentally bet 20 quid on Slovakia to win 1-0 by clicking the wrong link on a website. Now I'm going to spending the entire match shouting at players of limited ability who havent a hope of progressing against technically superior opposition. Wait a minute....that sounds familiar.

Not being English I don't really care, but as an outsider looking in, Terry should have the captaincy.

OK, his personal life isn't role model material, but on the pitch, where it all counts, he leads by example more than any other player, Gerrard and Rooney included.

Considering Gerrard is the captain of his country, why is it the former captain that is issuing a rallying cry and asking for the fans to get behind them? Surely that's the current captains job?

Gerrard is an awful captain at international level. Terry is a born leader.

From a neutral perspective, I'm hoping England qualify second and Germany top their group. At this point, there's a highly probable chance that this could actually happen.

England vs. Germany in R16 should surely set off some fireworks and the media frenzy that would ensue after the game would be of catastrophic proportions.

At international level the captaincy should be just an armband. To not be a leader on the pitch because you no longer have an armband is pretty childish.

England's biggest problem isn't Rooney or Heskey, it's playing an exceptional midfielder like Gerrard out of his natural position, at which point he becomes a mediocre midfielder. It's the midfield that feeds the forwards. Remember how Man U and in particular van Nistlerooy struggled after they sold Beckham and Veron? Crouch is worth starting on the 9 or so minutes evidence on Friday. Great first touch, good passing, desire to go forward and not fall over when tackled and urgency. That's the spirit you need in your team. That the England midfield were blind to Lennon/Wright-Phillips so often waiting open on the right for a long ball is plain sad and amateur football at best

John Terry Legend.

The ex-Captain is hauled out in front of the World's press to defend the team and the Manager that sacked him.

When Terry was sacked as captain, people on these boards insisted his position was untenable because of the threat of him being booed on the pitch by England fans.

Well, now that the whole team and Manager have been booed off the pitch against Algeria, the ex-Captain is being brought out to placate the press at today's news conference.

You couldn't write a more ironic story.biggrin

John Terry always a legend.
