    I guess i will be the first and only one to predict Beckham to be the second best goal scorer for england.

    I think it will be a huge surprise if Dwight Yorke scores one goal in the WC. T&T will be lucky to score any but if they come they will most likely be from Stern John or Russell Latapy.

    ....good point ursula.

    No disrespect to T & T, but I can't see them scoring. If they do, I can see there being a Trivial Pursuit question that says;

    "Which player scored the first ever goal for Trinidad & Tobago in the 2006 WC?"

    He is a great striker, but if i have to choose a paraguayan player for top scorer in the group, i'd choose Jose Cardozo. He is a goal-scoring machine. He's old(and injured now, but he will recover in a month or 2), and, in fact, i hate him, but he scores a lot.

    Cardozo had his time , he should have done more in '02 when he was faster and more agile , he definately has a scent for GOL . Roque I'm afraid won't be in top form for the Cup (If he makes it back) .

    Buena suerte a los Guarani ! .

    Mikey Owen is the most likely candidate .Just imagine what he can do to Trinidad.

    I expect Lampard to bag us a few goals through the tournament. Trinidad should
    be a good game for getting a few goals each and installing some confidence into the team.

    If Paraguay gets a draw against England, the latter might go out to kill Trinidad, and Rooney and/or Owen might collect a few there.

    I think Rooney will either dissapoint or be a scoring machine. I don't see him having an "average" performance.

    I'd agree with that. That would be a nice bonus in addition to Sweden topping the group.

    Zlatan or Owen. Pretty pointless question to be honest. Players hardly ever get more than 3 in the groups.

    And interesting fact its that Cardozo its the second top scorer in activitie behind Romario, so he will be the player with most goals scored in this WC

    But I have my bets on......

    Owen he is the man :D


    Dec 30, 2005
    Wayne Rooney or Zatlan Ibrahimovic

    Crouch will surprise everyone. He is on a roll now and Sven won't ignore him. His meer presence as a 6'7" forward will prove big (no pun intended) by rattling alot of defenders psychologically.
    If he doesn't score, he will be responsible for distracting the opposition while Owen, Rooney or Lampard stretch the twine.
    Crouch adds a new dimension and is England's secret weapon.

    I almost lost my tea all over my computer screen when I read this.

    Please! Crouch is so overrated (and no, that's not the Blue in me talking). He seems to have found his feet moreso recently, but honestly! If he's not on a hot streak during the WC games, I don't see him having much of an impact.

    Oh, and it's kind of hard for him to be a "secret" weapon when everybody already knows about him. The media has been all over him this season.

    Lose your tea if you must. Against Arg, as soon as Crouch came on he drew so much attention from their defenders that Owen was completely unmarked in the area and scored.

    Zlatan doesn't seem to be a real clinical finisher. More of a "scorer of great goals" than a "great goalscorer", to use a well worn cliche. He is a great support striker, terrific on the ball, plays with a lot of flair and is great to have on the team, but he doesn't have the instinct guys like Trez and Owen do.

    He's got a good touch though. For a big guy.
