World Cup 2006 Update
21June 2006

Best Performers To Date Ranked
1 Argentina
2 Germany
3 Spain

Grand Under-Achievers Ranked
1 France
2 England
3 Brazil

Generally, teams that make the finals do not play that well in the early phases, as it stands Argentina looks unstoppable and Brazil's attacking is not fully functional and its defending is suspect. Spain as usual will let everybody down during the second round but the might of Torres may see them fight for a semis berth. Germany has the weight of expectations but a semi final berth is likely. Italy and Netherlands needs to improve and should improve in time for a late charge.
