Cameroon to win World Cup 2010 - you heard it here first

OK, everyone's talking about the World Cup, so here's my tuppence'worth.

Pele's prediction that an African team will win the tournament before the end of the 20th Century will come true just 10 years late.

England will go all the way: they'll beat the USA  (and win Group C), then Australia in the next round, Ghana in the Quarter Final and Cote d'Ivoire in the Semi.

But when they get to the final, they'll lose to 1990 superstars Cameroon, whose route to victory will see them  win Group E, then coolly dispatch New Zealand, Denmark and South Africa.

The other losing Quarter Finalists will be Greece and North Korea, and other the remaining second round qualifyers will be Nigeria, Mexico, Algeria, Paraguay, Spain and Chile.

OK, maybe not. This prediction is based on who I'd like to see win each match, for all sorts of (mainly irrational) reasons, none of which has anything to do with footballing prowess. But if it happens, remember, you heard it here first.
