      New Zealand (All Blacks) since im a kiwi lol.

      The All Blacks have held the top ranking in the world for longer than all other countries combined.

      In over 100 years, only five of the top twenty ranked test rugby nations have ever beaten New Zealand.

      almost 80% winning percentage since 1903 or something ridiculous like that.

                            they`ve only played 1 top team so far and lost twice.
                            France are like the Dallas Cowboys of the Rugby world..always full of talent and can beat anyone but they are notorious for in-fighting and often if they aint winning after 30 minutes their fans turn on them and the players wilt under the pressure.
                            even though they have managed to squeak through to the Semi-final they will have to step up their game if they want to beat the current Welsh team who many non-welsh Rugby fans have been impressed by and would admit are the form team of the tournament so far.

                              yeah cheers,they have been good fair play...i was distraught after the opening game against the Springboks because of the circumstances of how they lost,but it`s just been a springboard to better things...
                              i always cheer on the all blacks aslong as they aren`t playing Wales. as do pretty much all of Wales due to our similarities.
                              e.g we the only two countries where Rugby is king,near enough same population,same kind of people,friendly to all but won`t take a backward step to anyone who mistakes that for a weakness.
                              both nations built by people who like to work and play hard and both love our own country with a passion and are happy and proud to be exactly who we are.

                              Good luck for the game sunday..hopefully it`ll be our teams in the final.

                                It appears that the French did step up their game. Well fought game on both sides. Losing key players is tough to overcome.

                                  As everyone knows it is world cup time, which mean that one of the biggest sporting events in the world will be going on for the next month. So I am interested, if you watch the World Cup what country to you want to win. I have been an Italian fan since I was little, and look forward to a repeat by the Azzuri. What team is everyone else watching.

                                  Great Expectations of U.S. Soccer

                                  Great expectations of U.S. soccer
                                  Sean Wheelock / Fox Soccer Channel


                                  For those of us who began avidly following the United States before 1990, Wednesday's 2-1 victory away to Trinidad & Tobago seems like something of a dream.

                                  It wasn't just that the U.S. won their opening match in the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualification, it's that they did it with such poise, confidence, and relative ease, in a pretty difficult place to gain a result.

                                  Now, I'm not kidding myself into thinking that beating Trinidad & Tobago in Port of Spain is like defeating France in Paris or Brazil in Sao Paulo, but a win away from home in CONCACAF is a quality win. And until relatively recently, they didn't happen all that often for the U.S.

                                  Last week, I interviewed Bob Gansler about America's victory vs. Trinidad & Tobago, which resulted in qualification for the 1990 World Cup. The U.S. of course was not supposed to win that match, or even come close to giving the Soca Boyz an actual challenge.

                                  At the time it ranked as this country's biggest win in international soccer since the 1-0 defeat of England at the 1950 World Cup. Now, not even a generation later, I am going to treat a 2-1 victory in Port of Spain as, dare I write this, expected. Has American soccer really come that far?

                                  I'm actually bracing myself for the columns and comments of the soccer media who will proclaim that the U.S. wasn't dominant enough in that match; that the scoreline should have been more decisive. Perhaps they should be reminded of the years 1951 through 1988 when wins, home or away, were neither plentiful nor expected.

                                  As the United States closes in on a fifth consecutive World Cup appearance, it's important to consider a time not that long ago, when even one trip to soccer's biggest event would have been regarded as a miracle. In fact, the berth in Italia 1990 was considered just that. Now a place in Germany 2006 is not only expected, it's demanded.

                                  As I watched the match develop from Port of Spain, I could scarcely believe how comfortable and dominant the U.S. squad looked. I had to continually remind myself that Trinidad & Tobago is a very solid squad, with a Premiership goalkeeper, Shaka Hislop of Portsmouth; a defender who starts for Rangers, Marvin Andrews; and two of the best strikers to come out of CONCACAF in the past 20 years, Dwight Yorke and Stern John.

                                  I also had to remind myself that Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain is a very difficult place for an away side to play, as they have to contend with passionate supporters, sweltering temperatures and a pitch, used predominately for cricket, that is both massive, and well, not exactly of the highest standard. Yet, here was the U.S., dominating the match, and looking very much the favorites.

                                  The United States is now into its fourth year unbeaten...
