Deutschland Deutschland Über Alles!

I've decided that I am going to put myself out here and try to predict the outcome of every single game in this summer's World Cup from Germany. That's right - an Iranian who admittedly follows very little soccer (though I did watch the UEFA Final last week and it was great) is going to try to predict the outcomes. I'll start by trying to predict from the first game through the final, but once pool play actually ends, I'll put up a second set of predictions for that point on. I will consider this experiment a success if I can break 35.5% correct!

Iran ist genauso ein genauso wenig aggresives Land wie die Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Man soll nicht das Trauma der Iraner vergessen: 10 Jahre Kriege gegen den Irak , der damals von den USA aufgerüstet wurde.
