I support no one.

I enjoy watching sports to see a level of competition and a nice clean game. Those are my expectations and as long as those are met, I could care less who wins the World Cup. I am looking to be entertained and looking forward to some great soccer ahead in this World Cup.

I was actually rooting for Mexico and was glad they beat Germany

I can still see Germany topping their group though!

So, as you say you do care then who are you rooting for?

The Mexican supporters were actually the ones going "ole, ole" when the score was still 0- 0. Not terribly humble.

its called being a football fan

Germany is by far one of the most arrogant teams, it is a humbling lesson they badly needed


fans shouting stuff on the stadium is irrelevant

They're not arrogant, they're just being football fans And if they are, their competitive record gives them every reason to be, Mexico on the other hand....

Happy for Mexico and their Colombian coach!!! They played a great game.

Every time they showed the German coach, I held my breath and hoped he would stay on his best behaviour

time to rethink the belief that Germany and Brazil are favorites lol.

Actually so far all of the "favorites" performed very bad. Unless Belgium or England prove me wrong...

I'm supporting Brazil, obviously. France and Portugal are my second teams.


As for Germany, I love the country, the people, their music, their cities, and I'm also able to speak German relatively well (I reached B1). But one thing is the country, another thing is the soccer team. After that humiliation suffered by us in 2014, and because we are still the country with most championships (five) but Germany follow us with four, the last team to which I'm going to support is Germany.


As for Argentina, bashing their team is a tradition in Brazil, but I don't care if they win. Instead, it would be interesting for increasing the rivalry, since they won only two times.
