Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hi Everybody - late on the scene, but I just had to watch a bit to get a feel for the countries/teams (which I knew nothing about). So finally, here's my picks:

1A Brazil 2A Mexico
1B Netherlands 2B Chile
1C Columbia 2C Cote D'Ivoire
1D Costa Rica 2D Uruguay
1E France 2E Switzerland
1F Argentina 2F Nigeria
1G Germany 2G USA
1H Belgium 2H Algeria

Round of 16

1A Brazil v 2B Chile = Brazil
1C Columbia v 2D Uruguay = Uruguay

1E France v 2F Nigeria = France
1G German v 2H Algeria = Germany

1B Netherlands v 2A Mexico = Netherlands
1D Costa Rica v 2C Cote D'Ivoire = Costa Rica

1F Argentia v 2E Switzerland = Argentina
1H Belgium v 2 G USA = USA

Round of 8

Brazil v Uruguay = Brazil

France v Germany = France (!!)

Netherlands v Costa Rica = Netherlands

Argentina v USA = Argentina

Final four:

Brazil v France = Brazil

Netherlands v Argentina = Netherlands

3rd Place: France v Argentina = France

Final = Brazil v Netherlands = Netherlands (finally wins their cup!!)

Nice to see everyone still plugging away here...still the most cogent political, economic, ecological and social commentary around! Cheers!
