Swiss and French about to get started. The Swiss are seeded 1st and are dogs to The French. Reckon this has anything to do with FIFA HQ in Switzerland?

Switzerland are seeded 6th in the FIFA rankings, while France is 17th. How those rankings are calculated is based on various factors.

This doesn't surprise me... the FIFA rankings, while a way of doing the rankings aren't the best.

Plus, that's why they play the game!

You and Nareed can go lament soccer in the threads about how much the World Cup sucks and leave the rest of us to get some enjoyment out of it. :)



Yes Then you can watch paint dry as an encore.

I understand that a lot of people of lower intelect have trouble understanding the finer points of football (soccer). MMA is probably more to their taste.
Be careful when you follow the masses, the M is sometimes silent.
