I'm predicting the winner:

 

The rioters are going to win!

 

I got a long track record on these boards, being diehard crazy supporter for this sport. But unfortunately, this time around there is an eerie pall over the entire event & can't view it in same perspective at all. Too many people is Brasil are pissed off for too many reasons. (Justifiably, I might add: rampant food & fuel inflation, out of control corruption, daily increase in police brutality & propaganda media & on & on & on...)

 

I think the event itself will complete on schedule, with no matches disrupted due to riots. But outside the stadiums in public life, the venting of enormous frustrations are expected to take center stage.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Can't see Brazil losing to anyone at home. This is not 1950.

It would blow my mind if Uruguay wins again.

I would pick Spain to repeat, but they have a really tough draw. I will pick Lionel Messi and Argentina instead.

Not sure what you mean by making a comeback, but keep an eye on England. They just missed out on being seeded. Not really an underdog, but they are in a tough group. If Hodgson lets Gerrard roam upfield in an attacking role (like Rodgers lets him at Liverpool), England will be explosive with Rooney and Sturridge as the primary strikers. If Hodgson sticks with the conservative style that got him fired at Liverpool, England will be toast.

 

Another team to watch is Portugal, if only because they have Ronaldo.

Um okay. They were ranked # 14 at the time of the draw. No way they are the # 3 team now. Shows how nebulous FIFA's ranking system is.

Want an underdog? Belgium. Vertongen (Spurs) anchoring the defense, Chadli (Spurs) and Hazard (Chelsea) at midfield, Dembele (Spurs) and Lukaku (Everton) up front.

I also really like Belgium.They should win their group and who knows from there.They also Vermalean in center defence Vincent Kompany,Axel Witsel and de Bruyne who can score some goals.I think it will be Brazil who wins it all.I think we (USA) have two chances to advance slim and none but will be rooting no less.

Liked what I saw offensively yesterday against Turkey. But the middle of their back four was lacking, to say the least. Still, athletically, I think the U.S. can compete in their group. They won't get a point from Germany, but Ghana and yes, Portugal are possibilities. IMHO

BBC to test 4K broadcasts of World Cup matches, but you can't watch them
 
(Engadget) - UHD TVs are starting to make more sense now compatible content's slowly appearing. Traditional broadcasters can't react as quickly as streaming services to adopt the new format, but some are showing little interest in being left behind. Korean companies, especially, and now the BBC, which has announced it'll be conducting 4K broadcast trials this summer. Furthermore, it'll apparently be the "first time" 4K video will be sent initially by satellite (from Brazil to the UK), and then forwarded on to TVs via the internet (kind of like Sky's centralized receiver model)....

Ghanaian witch doctor claims he caused Cristiano Ronaldo's injury

 

A witch doctor from Ghana has claimed he is responsible for the niggling leg injury that is currently throwing Cristiano Ronaldo's World Cup into doubt.

Ronaldo is nursing a pesky thigh muscle injury as well as a spot of "patellar tendinosis" in his left knee, leaving the Real Madrid superstar unable to train fully as Portugal's opening Group G game against Germany on June 16 looms ever closer.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam, a witch doctor whose name translates as "The Devil of Wednesday" and who plies his trade at the Kofioo Kofi shrine in Kumasi, claims he foresaw Ronaldo's injury back in February and that it is entirely his doing.
