Yesterday the wise readers of Sounder at Heart wisely instructed me to root for the Czech Republic in Group A. Wise, because that is the correct answer. Peter Cech is the best goalkeeper in the world and his retro headgear gives him the presence and demeanor of a modern day Bronko Nagurski. Tomas Rosicky is the most creative passing midfielder outside of La Liga and Milan Baros is an international football institution who can and will average a goal a game. They will crush this pathetic group and its reliance on Greek bus parking and the fading legs of Andrei Arshavin.
Today we move away from the Eastern Bloc and into Group B, dubbed the group of D'th by the media because it contains the Danes, the Dutch, the Deutschlanders, and 'Do (Cristiano to the unhip).
SBNation has been doing some cool group by group preview videos with Jimmy Conrad and I included the Group B preview here if you can't decide.
