OT: LSB Pre-World Cup thread

So two weeks until it starts, and I thought I may as well post this separately from the NBA/EPL threads, since the World Cup threads here were fairly active last time around, and people probably don't want to wade into the NBA thread for footy discussion.

Just to fill the word count, I've done a quick separation of teams into tiers, and also just the random questionnaire thing:

The favourites:

Brazil

Spain

Germany

Argentina

The in-between:
Italy
France

Sleepers:

Netherlands
Portugal

Belgium

Chile
England
Uruguay
Colombia
Croatia

Middle-of-the-pack:

Bosnia
Russia
Switzerland
Japan
Ivory Coast
USA
South Korea
Greece

Mexico
Ghana
Cameroon
Nigeria

Cannon fodder:

Ecuador
Algeria
Iran
Honduras
Costa Rica

Vegemite:

Australia

Questions:

1. Which country will you be supporting apart from the US?

2. Semi-finalists; finalists; winner?

3. Which players are you particularly looking forward to watch?

4. How far do you think the US will go?

5. Does anyone really have a better beard than Andrea Pirlo?

6. Is there really anyone dreamier than Xabi Alonso? (A clue: the answer is no.)

Rec this up, lest it disappear under the torrent of daily OTs.
