Argentina will defeat Germany and ultimately reach the final in a showdown against Brasil.

My favorite team, Brasil, unfortunately, will suffer defeat when:

In the 88th minute, the score is tied at 2-2. Tevez scores a very questionable goal which includes both a handball and a non-called offsides! Tevez smiles triumphantly to his inspiration, Diego Maradona, as they go on to win the game. FIFA responds swiftly and firmly and states that the refs will be disqualified from any subsequent matches in WC 2010. Shortly thereafter, Maradona is elected as President of Argentina.

Humiliated, the Brazilians turn against Dunga and his 'practical' style of futbol, and yearn for the return of joga bonito. In a shocking move, they hire Pele to coach the 2014 seleçao for Brasil. Hearing that Pele will be coach of the Brazilian team, Maradona resigns the presidency of Argentina to resume the helm of the national team. A war of words ensues, with Maradona using his own tv show, 'Hola Maradona', to taunt the Brazilian coach and team.

To make a long story short, Brazil exacts its revenge in Rio 2014, when they triumphantly defeat Argentina in the final in Maracana stadium. Pele and Maradona exchange suit jackets and finally bury the hatchet. Messi, tired of the drama, decides to change his citizenship to the US, and plays for the US national team in 2018, in which the US team both hosts and wins the Final, with Messi as our striker. The END!

Hey, stranger things have happened, no?

If you ask me the best to teams in the comp so far are playing each other in the Quarter Finals. The winner of that match (Germany and Argentina) will win the comp, in my opinion.

While I love the Argentina optimism, I cannot look past Germany like some are here. They are easily playing like one of the top 3 in the tournament and will be extremely difficult to beat. Even then, Spain looks like they have their act together now and I expect to see them move on to the semifinal. On the other side, while I think Chile and Uruguay are both impressive and formidable, ultimately I don't think Brazil will have much trouble reaching the final with that side of the bracket.....Regardless, how about those South American teams!

Spain defeats Holland 2-1 in the final.

This cup has seen many strange things and I think it will continue with a new WC Champion. It's about time we see someone else lift the WC.

My prediction
Brasil Vs Chile - 3-1 (brasil Wins)

Brasil vs Netherlands - 1-2 (Netherlands wins)

Germany Vs Argentina 2-4 (Argentina wins)

Spain vs Portugal 0-3 (Portugal wins)

Japan vs Paraguay 1-2 (Paraguay wins)

Portugal vs Paraguay 4-0 (Portugal wins)

Portugal vs Argentina 1-2 (Argentina wins)

Final Argentina vs Netherlands...2-1 ARGENTINA WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maradona goes back to his old ways of believing he is some kind of god after winning the world cup. Then he loses in the first round(group) of 2014 with a lot of controversies, Messi goes back home after slapping Maradona's face on TV during an Argentina vs Angola match. The FIFA ignores the attack as the ref didn't see anything. The Angola team scores several goals, and they start an African Dance after each goal which really upsets semigod Maradona who goes inside the field and pushes the dancing player on the floor. The ref didn't see anything either and it's business as usual. The final score Angola 5, Argentina 0. Finally Maradona doesn't even shake hands with the Angola coach(their last opponent) and fights with the media, gains weight, dyes his hair bleach blonde and goes back to live in Cuba with Fidel.
