As MewMan reminded me, I really should have done this poll last week, but I forgot... The poll only contains the countries that haven't yet been eliminated. However, by the time you vote in the poll, it's entirely possible your top choice is already gone... We did a similar poll 4 years ago, and the top picks by MU were Brazil, Germany, and Spain (in that order). Let's see what happens this time!

And for all you people who don't care about soccer/football, too bad.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Previous Poll Results
Question: Where do you live?
Metropolis (> 5m population) - votes: 1743 (15.4%)
City (1m - 5m) - votes: 2130 (18.8%)
City (500k - 1m) - votes: 1249 (11%)
City (100k - 500k) - votes: 2066 (18.3%)
Town (50k - 100k) - votes: 1174 (10.4%)
Town (10k - 50k) - votes: 1337 (11.8%)
Town (5k - 10k) - votes: 683 (6%)
Rural (< 5k) - votes: 922 (8.2%)
There were 11304 total votes.
The poll ended: June 21st 2014

I'm actually surprised. This is more evenly spread out than I expected. My guess was that the higher population choices would have many more votes, but I guess not...

I'd say Netherlands and Germany look like the strongest team at the moment. I see the WC being in one of their hands~ Brazil has been too sloppy for me.

I want to see Colombia make it far. ;-; <3

Edit: Aw, people are actually voting for USA. It's good to dream so big! :3

Everyone just votes for their own (or a neighbour) country... (I'm not so happy with this poll, because it's obvious that the largest country with most MU-fans will win it.)

I hope the final winner has less than 3% votes then I might laugh. I know one thing this wc has and will have a lot of surprises.

Three teams that's really impressed me this WC are Germany, Netherlands and France. The romantic in me would love for Netherlands to finally win the World Cup, but Germany and France might be more likely due to their experience. Between them, I like France the best so I voted for them.

I demand an "I don't care" answer...

Voted Belgium because that's my country, but I don't see them winning it at all even though a lot of people consider us an outsider.
Chile and France have impressed me; Germany and Brazil are obvious choices.

I don't care either, but it's fine that others do. At least this poll isn't religious... or inappropriate. laugh

the "I don't care" option is right under ignoring this poll

Remember not to vote for the country you hope will win, but the one you think will win.
I think Brazil have the highest chances, being already a strong team and hosting the event. But Germany made a really impressive debut.

My current top 3:
Fullmetal Alchemist
Pandora Hearts
Silver Spoon

Netherlands and Germany are likely to make it to the top. And maybe France. Brazil and Argentina don't look that strong tbh. But then again Brazil has the referee as their 12th player.
