Why do you call me Irenne?
It is not the first time you do it, on another post you called me the same way.

A Britain team would be very good, Gareth Bale is wasted talent, think of him playing in the world cup for the UK.

I was starting to doubt it slightly but your post on the HK/London/NYC etc thread, pretty much confirms it. You must be running out of names to call yourself! :P

They suffered massively to beat the US, come on. They are overrated

You were obviously watching a different game to me! It was exceptionally one sided, the score could easily have been 6-0. The thing is the best team doesn't always win but if you dominate play you are much more likely to win, the Belgians will dominate most teams. Stop and think for a moment about some of the players the Belgian team currently has:-


Tibaut Courtois (goalkeeper)
Jan Vertonghen
Vincent Kompany
Thomas Vermaelen
Kevin De Bruyne
Romelu Lukaku
Dries Mertens
Eden Hazard


If you know anything about football you will know that is an impressive array of talent in one team.

That is the thing, they have great players but mostly dont seem to be able to work together.

I highly doubt Belgium will blow everyones minds this world cup.

Maybe they are not absolut favorites but it wouldn't surprise me if they arrive to the Final.
Portugal and the Portuguese people in general are underestimated because they don't know us well.

Cool! I wouldn’t mind lending Bale to England - as long as they didn’t call the team “England” afterwards. UK, Great Britain, England & Wales would all be ok though.
