SO what are some of the biggest Politocal Showdowns at World Cups over the years and possible in 2010? I recall Argentina vs England being huge in 1986, just 4 years after the Falkland/Malvinas War. There was also the 98 USA x Iran game which we totally choked on. We gave them flowers before the game and they beat us 2 to 1 in a game that could have just easily ended 2 x 0. I imagine a North vs South Korea this year is highly unlikely but would be interesting to watch. In 06 didnt FIFA on purpose make a couple of countries avoid each other?
