American here.

Since no USA , I'm rooting for Mexico, Spain, Argentina (hoping Messi does better), Belgium (Coach Roberto Martinez is a cool dude) and England (always - for the colonies ).

And, not necessarily in that order!

There have been some good games and I've enjoyed watching. Unfortunately, if I root for a team it seems to be the kiss of death...they go belly up. I was pulling for Senegal. I'm hoping for anyone other than the usual suspects. Uh-oh... I probably shouldn't say that. It's probably just me but I've seen enough games that what I really want is to have Tony Meola given a red card or gagged for about half of the game. Can they red-card announcers?

That would be terrific if so, because there is one extremely irritating one which keeps screaming

Your maths is a bit 'off'! :-D

As for me, I will cheer for anyone outside of the USUAL SUSPECTS GROUP; they being Brasil, Germany, Italy (who did not qualify) France, Argentina, Uruguay, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Portugal.

With Mexico out, hopefully Colombia will do great! Also pulling for Japan.
