One week from Today...I can't wait! I hope the U.S. advance out of group play. I doubt we will beat Italy, but a good result (one win, win and a tie or two ties) against the Czech Republic and/or Ghana could put us through. Nedved is back for the CR so that will be a tough game. Ghana will show a few flashes of quality play, but they won't be consistant. If the U.S. does finish 2nd and advances, it will really be moot. Second place in Group E plays the winner of Group F - which will most likely be Brazil. England, France and Spain won't make it out of the Quarterfinals. There is a good chance of seeing Brazil, Holland, Italy and Portugal in the Semifinals. If so, I think a Brazil - Italy final would be a classic. I would love to say that Italy will win if this happens, but....I think Brazil is just too strong. Another Cup for Brazil.
