Here are my predictions for the World Cup:
I have no idea if these combinations are even possible, but I’ll go with Brazil, Argentina, Czech Republic, and the Dutch as my final four. The final will be Czech Republic and Brazil, with the Czechs winning on account of Petr Cech’s heroics. In case you’re wondering, yes, I did pick my World Cup winner based on a pun.
I swear this is the last time I’ll ever pick the Dutch for any major international soccer (football) event…good-for-nothing choke artists. Spain is even worse for that, so I’m going to go out on a limb and say the country will lose in a shootout in the round of 16 to a heavy underdog. If there is one team I want to see make some noise, it’s the Ukraine. Those stylish yellow jerseys are sure to blind opponents.
Team to score most own goals: France
Most likely to choke in the group stages: USA
Underdog with the best chance: Japan
Most likely to choke in a shootout: Spain
Team with the most yellow cards: England
Team with the most red cards: Tunisia
Most boring team to watch: Italy
Most selfish team: Holland
That’s enough projections for now. Let’s hope some of these actually turn out.
