Wow. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Some are just wonderful. Netherlands' I find a little funny. Russia's is also sort of odd. Switzerland's is way too ambitious.

Referees will wear this watch at the WC, which will tell them whether the ball has gone over the goal line or not.

Which Group you think will score the most goals?

And which will concede the least?

I'm going F and E respectively.

My comments for the list Very Happy

@rwo power wrote:These are the slogans painted on the team buses:

Algeria: Desert Warriors In Brazil - Nice
Argentina: Not Just A Team, We Are A Country - Nice, but then Colombia has almost the exact phrase  :facepalm: 
Australia: Socceroos: Hopping Our Way Into History! - Typical Australian phrase Very Happy 
Belgium: Expect The Impossible! - I dont
Bosnia and Herzegovina: Dragons In Heart, Dragons On The Field! - Nice, sounds Chinese with the Dragons
Brazil: Brace Yourselves! The Sixth Is Coming! - Bit simplistic but good
Cameroon: A Lion Remains A Lion - Sounds a bit lame
Chile: Chi Chi Chi!, Le Le Le! Go Chile! - Must be their language but sounds also lame in English Very Happy
Colombia: Here Travels A Nation, Not Just A Team! - Same as Argentina as mentioned.
Costa Rica: My Passion Is Football, My Strength Is My People, My Pride Is Costa Rica - Nice
Croatia: With Fire In Our Hearts, For Croatia All As One! - All so similar and cliche
Ecuador: One Commitment, One Passion, Only One Heart, This Is For You Ecuador! - Again, at least the last line is nicer
England: The Dream Of One Team, The Heartbeat Of Millions!! - I get absolutely no feeling reading this one for England, knowing how they usually under perform especially Very Happy
France: Impossible Is Not A French Word - They had to mention and emphasis that they are French as usual Very Happy
Germany: One Nation, One Team, One Dream! - Ur joking me! Again!
Ghana: Black Stars: Here To Illuminate Brazil - Nice!
Greece: Heroes Play Like Greeks - Not bad
Honduras: We Are One Country, One Nation, Five Stars On The Heart - BOREDDD
Iran: Honour Of Persia - Pretty simple but cool Very Happy
Italy: Let's Paint The FIFA World Cup Dream Blue - Nice
Ivory Coast: Elephants Charging Towards Brazil! - Lol Elephants, go!
Japan: Samurai, The Time Has Come To Fight! - Typical Japanese mentality Smile
Mexico: Always United, Always Aztecas - Cool
Netherlands: Real Men Wear Orange - Quite good
Nigeria: Only Together We Can Win - Sounds so hopeful Very Happy
Portugal: The Past Is History, The Future Is Victory - Haha, admitting past failures
Russia: No One Can Catch Us - This isnt racing? Razz
South Korea: Enjoy It, Reds! - Eh....
Spain: Inside Our Hearts, The Passion Of A Champion - Nice
Switzerland: Final Stop: 07-13-14 Maracana! - What does this mean? Loool
Uruguay: Three Million Dreams ... Let's Go Uruguay - Why THREE million? Loool
U.S.A.: United By Team, Driven By Passion - Sleeping....

Samourai, on the group question group F is indeed likely to have the most goals scored. The least goals question is more difficult. Group E it could be but I'd also consider group C.

England's training grounds:

I guess we could say their training for the cup will be "acclimatizing to the heat"
