Anticipation is building in the Pooch household as the tournament draws closer.

Before the things start I've been looking out for any good wagers, one thing that's grabbed my attention are the odds for the golden boot:

Ronaldo 10/1
Adriano 11/1
Ronaldinho 12/1
Thierry Henry 12/1
Michael Owen 14/1
Ruud van Nistelrooy 14/1
Luca Toni 18/1
Hernan Crespo 20/1
Miroslav Klose 20/1
Andriy Shevchenko 25/1

Of particular note here is Luca Toni, the Italian striker. He's been the top-scorer in Serie A this season playing for Fiorentina with thirty-odd goals and is playing up front with the likes of Totti and Inzaghi. You might be able to get 20/1 or thereabouts at
Betfair.

Also I've been having a think about what are the standout games from the first-round:

Monday 12th June - Italy v Ghana - Ghana are no mugs and the Italians always start slowly
Sunday 18th June - Brazil v Australia - I think Australia could give Brazil a bit of a physical test
Tuesday 20th June - England v Sweden - Could be interesting if we're both trying to avoid the Gremans
Wednesday 21st June - Holland v Argentina - Two very good sides, should be an even contest

In other news I've signed up an exclusive surprise correspondent from the States (United) to give an American perspective

Tomorrow I hope to finally upload the itinerary of games we will be watching. Stay tuned...
