Shouldn't AUS, as hosts and champions, be in Pool 1 rather than the USA?

Yes, how could I forget!

Pool 1 and 2 are equally strong, so switching those two doesn't make a real difference.

Sorry to make you redo the image and everything. It's very cool looking.

I hope WAL, IRE, ITA, HUN, BRA, POR, and MEX end up in a group. They can be the "we have green on our flags" group.
And then ENG, NIR, USA, FRA, CAN, POL, and JPN can be the "we have red and white (and sometimes blue)" group.
Leaving AUS, SCO, ESP, GER, NZL, EGY, and ARG as the "uhhh...we're the other group" group.

What fun!

"No dragons or kangaroos were harmed in the making of this poster" That made me bust a gut laughing!! :lol: :lol:
Ew why was my signature so cheesy?

Really, song lyrics? Yeesh, I haven't left all of my cringiness behind. I promise, it's mostly gone now.

I should have at least quoted a less dramatic song.

It's a quick switch around, I have it all layered out in Photoshop. I'm pretty happy with how the posters turned out =)

I like how all the teams from Pool 3 have some kind of deficiency in their lineup.
