Sunday: Germany vs. Brazil for the World Cup.

Saturday: Third place match between Rep.Korea and Turkey.

Ronaldo vs. Kahn, this could be quite the matchup.

Oh, I hope the Brazillians take it I really do. However, if the Germans do take it, it means they've won the current trophy 3 times which means they get to keep it and maybe we English would have more luck winning the new cup than we did with the current version

Still, even if our mortal enemies or the guys who knocked us out are the ones in the final, it has been a great World cup overall. Massive strides have been made with the Asian teams and hopefully the crack down on play-acting will continue. Great stuff.

I guess all of the soccer fans time in this forum is nearly over now, huh?

I find it cool that this is the final, since, amazingly I guess, Germany and Brazil have never met in the World Cup.

The only negative is that Germany's best player is out due to accumulated yellow cards.

I've got a little German blood in me but I work with a couple of hot brazilian babes so I think I'll be pulling for Brazil in the Final.

Seeing kids like Donovan playing for the US has to give the US hope for 2006

That reminds me of that famous saying...

"Blood is thicker than water...but having hot babes for co-workers, well, that stomps all over blood and makes it cry."

I like Brazil too, but Kahn could steal the Cup for Germany by himself.

You have to implore them to dress in Brazilian bikinis and dance around the office in exchange for your support.

The fairytale is set-up perfectly! The greatest player in the world (possibly) nearly retires 2 years ago due to injury. He recovers and leads his team to the World Cup, picking up the Golden Boot on the way. 2002 could be for Ronaldo what 1970 was for Pele.

Mind you, I thought he was going to come back and win Serie A for Inter and he messed that up in the last game.

I've got to say, I'm a little let down. The most upset-filled World Cup ever, and the final is...Germany vs. Brazil.

Here's to hoping Ronaldo doesn't make an all-nighter playing Tomb Raider and show up dead tired for the final this time. *snicker*

If you look at the qualifying rounds, it could be considered an upset. One team made it with the last game of quailfying, the other lost a game 5-1 and had to go through a play-off.

What I heard was that Ronaldo had an epileptic seizure the night before the 98 final, and (obviously) wasn't going to play, but was forced to play by Nike.

I've never heard anything official on that, just a conspiracy theory...

Oh I am so pumped for Sunday's game. The methodical Germans versus the flamboyant Brazilians. The unmoveable defense (Germany conceded ONE goal in six games) against the unstoppable offence (Brazil scored SIXTEEN goals in six games).

A lot of people are saying that Brazil will win in a cakewalk, but I'm not so sure. In 1998, France won the World Cup by playing just like Germany -- suffocating defence, terrific goaltending, and timely goalscoring. And who did France beat 3-0 in the World Cup Final game? A Brazilian side featuring Ronaldo, Rivaldo, and Roberto Carlos. Don't count out Germany.

However, as Odessasteps pointed out, they will be missing Michael Ballack due to suspension ... he is their midfield general and will be missed. On second thoughts, maybe you can count out Germany.

Don't forget about Saturday's game either. Korea/Turkey should be good, and either side would love to take home the Bronze.

There are so many theories about this. Nike, all-night porn video watching, his girlfriend cheating on him and the use of 'vitamins' to help his injury have all been mentioned as possible reasons. We'll probably never know.

Ronaldo probably injured his teeth opening beer-bottles back in '98.

Maybe they just figured getting rid now means they can hopefully steady the ship this season and start looking for a replacement to get a jump on the other teams that'll be coach hunting come the end of the season.
