Default Tell a passive soccer fan about the World Cup

I have barely followed the game in the last four years. The last game I watched was the UEFA cup or Champions Cup Final a few days ago where the Spanish team won. As you can tell, I don't know much about what is going on in the game now. There are other people like me who are interested in the game now because of the World Cup. This is the thread where you avid soccer fans tell us non-avid followers about the game.

What are the must-see games in the first round?

Which teams are the favorites to win?

Which teams might cause upsets?

Who are the superstars? Who are the rising stars?

Who are some of the big name coaches?

Who is your favorite team? Who is your favorite player? Favorite coach?

Who are the superstars?
Ronaldinho of Brazil, watch out for his skills, the best player in the world.

Who is your favorite team? Who is your favorite player? Favorite coach?
England. Wayne Rooney. Guus Hiddink (Genius in my eyes)

Here are some must see 1st Round games.

Jun 20 20:00 UK Sweden v England

Jun 21 20:00 UK Netherlands v Argentina

And every Group E (Italy, Czech Republic, Ghana, US) & Group F (Brazil, Australia, Croatia, Japan) game.

As far as the 1st Round is concerned, personally, Groups A, D, G & H don't really interest me all that much.

We can discuss 2nd Round blockbusters when the time comes.
Dare to dream.

Ronaldinho, Rooney (injured right now), Messi will be some of the players to watch out for.
