Betting on Germany, England,Brazil, Holland and Argentina to win their first two games is great value. £20 bet would return £1100 :D

Hopefully Arsene is right :n

Wenger says Germany losing sleep over Aussies
SYDNEY — Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has said "tough cookies" Australia will be giving three-time champions Germany sleepless nights before their World Cup opener, giving them a strong chance of an upset.

Wenger gave the apparently outclassed Socceroos a 40 percent chance of shocking Germany on Sunday, a result which would throw Group D wide open.

"If I was the national team coach of Germany and I had to play Australia, I wouldn't sleep well," Wenger told Australia's Channel Nine TV network.

"Let's say for me it will be 60 (percent chance for) Germany, 40 Australia.

"I give them a chance against Germany but we'll see. It will be very interesting."

Australia beat the odds to reach the last 16 of the 2006 World Cup before being controversially ousted by eventual winners Italy. They are currently ranked 20th in the world to Germany's sixth.

"Usually they are very tough cookies in the World Cup, Australia," Wenger said.

"Sometimes Germany are slow starters in the big competitions, maybe Australia can take advantage of that because it will make it a very interesting group."

Australia will also face Ghana and Serbia in Group D.

Why??? Doesn't affect England does it??? It was a thoroughly entertaining game, South Africa were better than I expected them to be. Very good start to the tournament, and a cracker of a game tonight.

It affects who we play after winning Group C, but its just that Germany and Australia are stereotypically England's nemesis'
