What do TTPers feel is the biggest surprise so far in the WC?

Senegal is my choice, if for no other reason I've never heard of them :rolleyes:

Missing Italy on the list!

It has to be France...their playing like shite! Just like the Ital's! You expect more from the defending world cup champs and a respected soccer country like Italy!

This is a tough one,

I'm going to go with the CONCACAF vote. Most notable the USA...
I'm not sure how they beat Portugal with their fcukin kick and run style. Obviously, Portugal was looking past the USA and the prelim games.

There have been truly alot of surprise's.

The timing of this poll is crucial. Right now, I vote for France: two games and no goals is shocking. However, the next game they'll bring it all together and make it through.

If, after the next game, Senegal makes it though, then I'd vote for them.

No Riots?

You might want to take that one of the list. Some bloke died last night in Russia after Russian fans lost the plot. According to some of the English hooligan websites, there is a 'mob' out in Japan, who are just biding there time and enjoying themselves till they decide to 'kick off', so don't hold ya breath there. I'm guessing a loss to Nigeria will be enough to ignite the short fuse of the idiots that have travelled...

My vote would be the French disaster thus far. I still fancy there'
ll get through and progress far though.

African footy has come so far since 1990 that we shouldn't be too surprised by Senegal, although the win vs France was a shock!

I was wrong. Senegal has made it through, and I still have to say France's (lack of) display has been the biggest surprise.

No goals.

I . . . can't . . . believe . . . it.

:eek:

Silly Scots. Don't they know they're not supposed to be there?

France

Personally I think Ginola should be playing for France. I felt like he would have been a good replacement for Zidane in the first games and I rate him above Petit or Djorkaeff.
