I was kinda torn there, as I like France as a country, but I fell in love with Juventus when I was first getting into footie a few years ago. Plus, Buffon is a pretty impressive keeper; at least when I’d seen him. Shame about Zidane being sent off, though. For a while, I actually thought France would take the Cup.. Nevertheless, an intense game!
Four days left, people! If Italy walks home (not literally) with the Cup, that’d be fab, but if France does it, I’ll be surprised.. I’m still rooting for Germany, but Portugal might well snatch it from their respective grasps, and run away giggling! O NOES!!1!
Four days left until THE FOOTBALL APOCALYPSE

Sdtrk: ‘Interesting drug’ by Morrissey
One could accurately describe me as the most casual football fan ever — I’ve only been into it for the past three or so years, and I don’t keep up with it as much as I could be. I like Manchester Utd for obvious reasons; Juventus, probably cos they were the first Italian team I’d seen; and Bayern München, cos Ollie Kahn’s goalkeeping skills impressed me, even though he’s a bit of an adulterer. O, and there’s Gatas Brilhantes H.P., but as it’s a futsal team composed of Japanese idol singers, I don’t think they really count. Nevertheless, as far as the 2006 World Cup goes, I know who I’m backing..
