ING Pretty Sure The Yankees Have Won The Last 15 World Series

Which is why the bank is pretty confident that Goldman Sachs is totally wrong and that Spain’s highly-compensated players will repeat as World Cup champions this summer.

On a related note, ING’s pretty sure that Colombia has been spelling its name wrong for the last 200 years.

While Goldman used past performances to make its predictions, ING has tried to forecast which team will win the tournament based on the quality of its players, measured by the market value of the squad. To determine each team’s market value, ING used the transfer value of each member of the 23-man squads….

Which national team has the highest market capitalization? Reigning champions Spain, followed by Germany and Brazil. ING has used the transfer value of each member of the 23 man squad to make its calculations.

Colombians, already peeved at people misspelling their country’s name, may not be too happy.

    I wouldn't pay 37 Euros to see the US win the world cup. It's only worth a fiver at most.

  2. Guest says:

    The US's value is probably primarily due to Tim Howard.

    Just because they are on the highest salaries doesn't make them the best. They should know this by looking at their own payroll.

    We're terribly sorry for the misspelling of Columbia. In yesterday's publication, it was written as "gangsta's paradise".
