Steffen's World Cup Diary: Group B

Posted on 24 May 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

A European Championship winner with Germany, Steffen Freund has agreed to stretch his diary into the World Cup - starting with a run down of the groups.

Spain have never won a major tournament but they should win Group B.

I don't know why they have never quite made the big step but they will be strong again. The Spanish League is very strong and Real Madrid have won the European Cup again.

The rest of the group could be quite close. South Africa can play well and did well in the African Nations Cup and Slovenia have some very skilful players. They did well at Euro 2000 and could be the surprise team.

But I will take Paraguay to join Spain in the next round. The South Americans are always tough to beat and they will be more used to the conditions out there.
