I would love USA-Czech with USA winning.....revenge!
ok, back to reality. Italy beating Brazil would rock, England beating argies/brazil/germany with Crouchoudinho scoring off Gerrard's cross off Carragher's pass off Scott Carson's throw (Robinson gets a red, James gets injured)
I'd stop watching the World Cup if that ever happened
edit: the title is "dream" final. Seriously, would that match-up put you on the edge of your seat; biting your nails, heart beating on every touch of the ball by the opposition? Please tell me the answer is no.
A balanced game between the teams with many chances from both Italians and Brazilians.
In 39' Del Piero will score with an outstanding free-kick some metres outside the box
The Brazilians wil be more aggresive and they will press in the 2nd half.Their press will work and Kaka will do the 1-1 in 59' from inside the box after a great compination between him,Ronaldinho and Ze Roberto
After that the Brazilians will try to do the 2-1 but Buffon will say NO 2 times.
In 75' after an one-two between Zambrotta and Del Piero, Alex will reach outside the Brazilian Box and with a shoot from the DEL PIERO ZONE will do the 2-1 for the Italians, just like his old good goals.
The end for Brazil will come in 89' when Totti with a magical through ball will find Toni, who will score with an extremely powerful shot.
Brazil - Italy would be my dream choice to start off the second round (With Brazil losing)
Techincally one finalist comes from groups A-D and the other from groups E-H, so I think the final will be Italy - Argentina, with Italy winning 2-1, with a 90th minute freekick goal by DP. (Del Piero + TeamGeist ball should be interesting to see anyway).
There's no question. The best final I see possible at this stage would be Brazil-Argentina. Brazil because of expectations, and Argentina because, IMO, they're they NT that's been playing the best international football of the past couple of years, IMO.
It would be a nice rematch of the 2005 Confed Cup final, where Brazil limped in like a has-been, barely qualifying in their group over Japan. And Argentina was fierce... until meeting Brazil in the final, where Brazil suddenly decided they should play for real and thus destroyed them.
Oh, the rivalry...
(Though I know for many Europeans, the thought of a "provincial" South American final bores many to tears without their own kind...)
