Germany favourites to win World Cup?
A story in the Guardian today on Adidas contains an intriguing quote on the German team's chances in the upcoming 2006 World Cup:
"... Klinsmann, manager of the young German team which has been a heavily backed favourite to regain the trophy ..."
Heavily backed favourite? Huh? In light of the FIFA president's comments on bird flu, is that the favourite to host the tournament perhaps?
