Portugal and Paraguay

The reason for this post is merely to mention the two teams I have drawn in the World Cup sweepstake at work. I had no idea that Portugal are rated number 3 in the world according to FIFA although thay have a very tough 'group of death' with the main threat coming from Brazil. Throw in the Ivory Coast and one of the two Korean teams and you have an interesting group for sure.

Portugal and Brazil - the historical irony has not been lost on me - this is almost a local derby!

Portugal also drew 0-0 with the Cape Verde Islands last week which makes England's warm up results as positively fantastic!

Hi Steve,

I think a lot of the pre competition friendlies have thrown up some odd results - still, Brazil vs Portugal should be a good game if nothing else!

All the best,

And if Brazil top the group and Portugal finish 2nd, potentially a Spain v Portugal ko in the next round (and I'm in Lisbon with some Spaniards that night!!)

Spain vs Portugal eh? Now that should be good - go easy on the Sagres or San Miguel!
