Steve Gilliard says:

The Brits want a 40 year repeat of 1966, so expect a lot of bad WWII analogies in the British papers next year. Anything short of that, and heads will roll. Into the Thames.

The question dogging them is can Beckham keep his head in a crucial match and can the Brits live up to their talent. Besides Brazil, England has the most talented team on the pitch, man for man, but not the best team as a team. Euro 2004 was the latest point to emphasize this.

We like the French and Brazilians ourselves, besides the US.

He highlights the key...can a group of great individuals be the best team. Needless to say, I like Brazil. Rumo ao sexta!

Not something I follow as closely as I might - at least not prior to the play starting in Germany - but it looks to me like the US is in the toughest group. And a possible US-Brazil match-up in the round of 16 - that would be interesting.
