    I think Argentina will win this. They're undefeated under Pekerman and have the most Inter players out of all the countries in the tournament.

    This tournament is crap. The only reason still exists is cause fifa(Blatter) wants it nobody else cares about it and now we might lose copa italia cause of it. I hope all teams that have inter players in them get knocked out in the 1st round and those teams either fail to reach germany 2006 or get knocked out in the 1st round for calling up our players.
    Forza Inter per sempre!!!!

    Blame FIFA for just trying to make more money, but also blame Lega Calcio for scheduling a Final in the middle of June! All other countries are long done by that time and yet, as Mancio has said recently "Only in Italy would this happen." (or something like that)

    Yeah, Mancini said the same thing as well. He said Blatter was right and it was the lega calcio that is responsible.

    Sportsnet will show the games, so that's nice as well. I really want to see Luisao and what he is all about.

    Suprisingly, Pekerman really is taking this tournament seriously. I think countries like Australia will also, they don't have many matches before their sudden-death WCQ against the 5th best South American team. I boycotted this tournament after the tragic death of Marc-Vivien Foe, but now since Argentina is in it, I guess I can delay that boycott.

    This looks like the likely line-up, I wanted to see Luisao play but I guess he won't:

    BRAZIL
    Dida; Cicinho, Lúcio, Roque Júnior and Gilberto; Emerson and Zé Roberto; Kaká and Ronaldinho; Robinho and Adriano.
    Coach: Carlos Alberto Parreira

    GREECE
    Nikopolidis; Goumas, Tavlaridis, Fyssas and Seitaridis; Basinas, Giannakopoulus, Zagorakis and Karagounis; Charisteas and Vryzas.
    Coach: Otto Rehhagel

    Half Time: Brazil 1 -- Greece 0

    Adriano scored the best goal I've seen in a very long time! It was stunning, the sleepy british commentator was screaming, and the Greek GK looked as if he just saw an alien.

    Absolutely out of nowhere. He got the ball on the touch line, dribbled one player, and unleashed a shot that stunned everyone. My mouth was opened for a minute!

    Adriano scored a cracking goal just before halftime . Brazil 1 Greece 0
    Karagounis didnt do much on the field though with Brazil having the bulk of the attacking play.

    Game ended 3-0; Adriano, Robinho and Junihno scored the goals.

    Kaka is planin h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e these days! He was by far the worse Brazilian on the pitch. Bad short passes, astray long passes and poor control. He killed so many good brazilian move, his last season was very bad by his average.

    And I don't know why Carlos Alberto insisted on him. I wanted Juninho to start along side Ronaldinho since Emerson was partnered by Ze Roberto. Juniho is better defenively, and is out right better than Kaka these days.

    Some one might for sure, it was a cracking goal. I bet if you see a highlight show they will show it, it was better than any goal he scored with Inter. That goal against Udi with the long run and dribbling was good, but this was out-of-the-blue!

    Thanks, it's a goal you never get sick of seeing. Like the commentators said in the clip, it seems the ball just accelerates in the middle of the kick!

    Oh my dear Lord Jesus Christ... ...Adriano can be scary at times

    What a fcking goal! Out of completely nowhere! It looked like he was going to try and dribble his way thru but he owned the first guy and rifled a complete rocket!! It tore the bloody net!

    Gilberto Silva was awesome too.

    Was that the same Gilberto from Arsenal? I don't think so. But again, his name could be Gilberto Silva as well, those brazilian names
