This world cup has been quite strange so far.

France, England, Germany, Spain have all flopped so far. None of those teams will win the world cup.

So either Argentina, Brazil, Italy or the Netherlands will win I think. Out of those I say Argentina, they have looked the most impressive.

not hard to look impressive against a scared African side, and an asian side that consistently qualifies from a weak region.

Maybe... but countrys like France, England, Germany, Spain have all lost or drawed against countrys that are around the same level of South Korea or Nigeria.

doesn't that happen in every sport?

most of the time the favourites win, sometimes the underdogs get up....

I think you are mistaking Mexico and Uruguay with the likes of Saudi Arabia, Angola, Honduras or Australia.
we were embarrassing, hopefully tonight we can gain some respect back....

You did! More than decent closing. I take Australia off my list above.
