    hope they do well in the world cup, but the title will be for brazil, spain or argentina, in this order.
    there is not any chance for any other team.
    and of course, england will not qualify for the 2nd round.

    would love to see the falklands (lol) or gibraltar (lol) participating in a world cup.

    Well I would like to see Argentina become a stable, wealthy country that shared it’s wealth with all its citizens by the provision of real jobs for those who wanted them.

    But like England getting through to round 2 it will never happen.

    A good story. It amazes me that a nation with such a small population can be so successful.
