My next bet is on England

Crespo, Riquelme, Tevez, Rodriguez, Cambiasso, Messi - and still Argentina lost on penalties. I was so confident of them going all the way to finals to meet the Brazilians.

My next choice for the winner of the world cup is England. What is the logic, you ask? I bet on the most talented and most stylish side, and they lost. So I am betting now on the most boring team left in the competition.

It is just before the England v Brazil match.

Ronaldinho goes into the Brazilian changing room to find all his teammates
looking a bit glum.

"What's up?" he asks.

"Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it's
important but it's only England.
They're no good and we can't be bothered. We are bored "

Ronaldinho looks at them and says, "Well, I reckon I can beat them by
myself. You lads go down the pub."

So Ronaldinho goes out to play England by himself and the rest of the
Brazilian team go off for a few jars.

After a few pints they wonder how the game is going, so they get the
landlord to put the teletext on. A big cheer goes up as the screen reads "

Brazil 1 - England 0 (Ronaldinho 10 minutes)". He is beating England all by
himself!

Anyway, a few pints later and the game is forgotten until someone remembers,
"It must be full time now, let's see how he got on." They put the teletext
on.

"Result from the Stadium 'Brazil 1 (Ronaldinho 10 minutes) - England 1
(Lampard 89 minutes)."

They can't believe it; he has single-handedly got a draw against England!!

They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate Ronaldinho. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sitting with his head in his hands.

He refuses to look at them. "I've let you down, I've let you down."

"Don't be daft, you got a draw against England, all by yourself. And they only scored at the very, very end!"

"No, no, I have, I've let you down. I got sent off after 12 minutes."

Filippe Scolari strikes again....!!!

You know that England are the most boring overhyped and talentless side for a reason.

Their ineptness was on full display today.

Anon - I thought that was a sad joke, until I saw England miss penalty after penalty. Maybe you are correct.

Vidya - I think it's my luck. I am favoring Italy next :-)

Arun - I wouldn't say that. They played some of their best defensive football after Beckham and Rooney were out. If only Lampard could find the net..

WA - :-)
