World Cup Starts Today

The 2006 World Cup Finals start today with Germany v Costa Rica and Ecuador vs Poland.

Germany vs Costa Rica - It's looking like German midfielder
Michael Ballack isn't going to be fit for this one, which will delight the Costa Ricans no doubt.

On paper, the Germans are too strong for the Costa Ricans and should win, but I wouldn't rule out a surprise. Paulo Wanchope - the Costa Rican forward - is still an impressive, skillful striker when he wants to be and Germany's defence are, well, not great, let's just say.

I say this will be a draw and there will be lots of moaning coming from everyone who has ever pulled on a German shirt about how poor this German team is.

TV Schedule: Germany v Costa Rica: BBC 1 (UK): 4pm GMT
ESPN2 (USA): 12pm EST
