    Naw, we're going to beat England and go on to beat Argentina and finally Brazil. The victory that'll make me the happiest will be the second.

    One of my children was born in SP, so I'll never really enjoy a Brazilian defeat.
    An Argentine defeat, on the other hand...
    If we have a Maracaná 2 my daughter will weep along with her 150 million compatriots. But I'd go out and celebrate in the streets.

    Didn't know you lived in Brasil, ynsere.

    In fact, since Argentina is considered the worst enemy by uruguayans and Brasil the best friend, according to a recent poll - with very impressive numbers - , I'm not surprised that you'll be happier with their defeat.

    I don't hate Argentina. The country was very generous to my immigrant ancestors back in the 19th century and I have many Argentine friends here in Punta del Este. But having Argentina so close is like having an aggressive madman next door. Also, I'm immensely sympathetic to the Falkland islanders, having visted as a kid.
    and been made very welcome. Great people!

    In muy opinion the main reason why Argentina musn't win the World Cup is that it would give the present gov't and its 35% following a new lease on life.

    I see your point. I just mentioned it because I have uruguayan friends here (we have a big uruguayan community in Porto Alegre) and I've heard about their strong dislike for argentines as a people, even when they stress the “fact” that “no, I only hate porteños, the rest are OK”. When I read the poll I connected both informations.

    Having lived in Buenos Aires for 6 months, I don't understand my uruguayan friends. I was extremely well treated there, and - surprisingly for me - even more when I made clear that I was brazilian. I had far more problems visiting Entre Rios and Corrientes when I was a teenager. People think I'm crazy, but I prefer porteños.

    I hope that Uruguay, Argentina and Brasil enjoy success in the competition. But another Maracanazo is out of possibility. Uruguay is not as good as it was in 1950 (when you were a true superpower in football) and Brasil will never repeat that arrogant atitude.

    The first Maracanazo was a miracle. All we need is another! Even Pelé has mentioned the possibility.

    I agree with you about the Porteños. As a rule I far prefer them to Argentines from the provinces.

    I lived near POA for a year in the early eighties. In Nova Hamburgo. No crime, happy little birds chirping and singing away in the garden, drove an ancient Fusca that never broke down. Good times.
