Calling football fans, who do u support?
Me & my R2 supporting our blue/white
ARGENTINA

Because they have the greatest football master ever! Maradona!
The force is strong with this one.He is so talented, I swear he can shoot lightning from his fingers if he wanted, but sorry, he's the worst coach in football history :P
And his apprentice, Fifa best player ,... MESSI
(hoping for a fairy tale ending with 'hand of god' holding the world cup)

So which team is yours? Media darlings of ENGLAND? Europe kings--SPAIN? Samba kings of Brazil ? The discipline GERMANS? Best defence ITALIANS? or maybe the best team to never win a world cup -- HOLLAND?

May the World Cup Force be with you

1998 during the National Day Rally Speech when he was still the PM. :lol:

Quote:
In his 1998 National Day Rally speech, then Prime Minister Goh Chok tong, inspired by the French victory in 1998 World Cup with a group of players led by Zinedine Zidane who is of Algerian extraction, said:

Look at the French World Cup football team. In the final against Brazil, I picked Zidane as the most outstanding French player. He is of Algerian descent. Of the 22-players, more than half did not look "French". They looked Argentinian, Armenian, Basque, Caribbean, Ghanaian, New Caledonian. Some were born in France, but of immigrant parents. Others are first generation French citizens. When they went up to receive their medals, President Chirac embraced all of them as Frenchmen. He sent a strong political signal for multi-racialism and against xenophobia: that in France, so long as you contribute to the French cause, it does not matter what colour your skin is or where you were born.

Last year I told you Singapore would never have a chance in the World Cup, because the rules require all players to be citizens. But after watching the French victory, I have changed my mind. Maybe if we change our immigration criteria to bring in top football talent and make them citizens, then one day we too can get into the finals. In fact we intend to do just this, to bring in sports talent.

By 2006, even with the Foreign Talent Scheme in place, the World Cup goal had been abandoned.

Losing 3 mil..?? whoa! Didn't know that.

It's nice to see underdogs causing upsets once in a while.
The US team was actually good,
And Paraguay also held WCup champs Italy to a draw :D
