Germany wil go down to Italy:World Cup Soccer 2006
That is my prediction. Only time will tell if I am right or wrong.
On current form, I think the Italians are turning out to be the sleeping giants. They have stuttered and spluttered in the earlier matches and are coming together just in time. In exactly the same way, France is.
On the other hand Germany started with a bang, and since then has had a few close encounters, especially in the last match against Argentina.
On performance, Germany seems to be a front runner to win the Cup, but then if that was always the case, then the word “underdog” would not exist.
