World Cup quarter final predictions

Time for the weekend predictions for the World Cup Quarter Finals.

Germany V Argentina - Argentina should edge this but with home advantage it will be a close match. If I was to call it, I would go for a 2-1 Argentina win after extra time.

Italy V Ukraine - Both teams have not played too well, Italy struggled to get past Australia and the match between Switzerland and Ukraine was a total bore with them winning on penalties. Italy should win though a play like Shevchenko Ukraine could produce a shock. Italy 2-0 win

England V Portugal - The big one! what England will turn up? I think this time we will get it right and with Deco out, Ronaldo doubtful we have a good chance. England will win this 3-1 with two goals from Rooney.

France V Brazil - Brazil are clear favourites though in their past two world cup meetings, 86 in the quarter finals and of course the 98 World Cup saw France triumph. I have a sneaky suspicion that this will be the surprise of the round and I am going to say that France will win this on penalties after a 2-2 draw after extra time.

We will see tomorrow night what I get right and wrong.
