  • I am not sure how the harlan socer team will do this year, i hope they do good because it is my hometown team. i am not sure who i would play for if i could choose who i wanted to play for, i do not really know the teams. I am not sure wo=ho will win the world cup in 2026. 

  • I personally think the girls will do well and I hope the boys go far in their season this year. If I had to pick a team to play for professionally I would have to say Brazil's National football team. I hope that Mexico's National team wins but otherwise, I would like Brazil or France to win.

    • I would agree Brazil has some new talent and has a big chance on winning it all in 2 years. Mexicos National team has been through thick and thin these past couple of years 

  • Of course I do think that Harlan team is going far this year, I don't know which team I would play for, there are actually several teams that are good and that I like. I think I'm still among the best who have been in recent years (France or Argentina). But I hope in the 2026 world  Cup it will be another country.

  • I think the Harlan team could do well and maybe go far. If I ever played for a soccer team it would be a little league and nothing important. I have no idea who is going to win the world cup. 

    • I would agree becuase harlan has some good players and managers on the team. the team who should win the world cup the US 

  • I think the Harlan teams could do pretty well this year and hopefully have a sucessful season.  If I ever played for a soccer team besides Harlan it would be a team at a little college. I have no clue who will win the 2026 world cup.

  • I think that the harlan team will go a decent waise this year because we have a lot of people out. If I had to play soccer I would play for the harlan team because I don't know what other team is there. I think Argentina will win the world cup.

  • I am not sure how far both Harlan teams will go this year. I'm hoping both go far this year and think that they both have a chance at it. If I had to play for a team I don't know who I would choose. I don't really watch much soccer, so I don't think I could guess who will win the 2026 world cup especially because it is so far away.

  • I think that the boys and girls on the Harlan soccer team will do good this year. I am in soccer right now, and I will say its tough but im learning a lot and having a good time with it. Im not sure what soccer team I would play for, I don't really know what teams there are. I couldnt tell you who would win the world cup.
