Germany (the host nation) and Costa Rica are set to play in the first match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup on Friday.
We probably won’t be covering the World Cup much at all on this blog, but an online friend of ours located in Germany will be covering it. You can check out his blog here. Apparently, he thinks Germany is going to win the World Cup. I guess they might have a slight advantage being the host country and all.
I personally will be rooting for the US Team.
