Still you are in a position where you go by metrics of the opposition and find that it was tougher in 2006. But let me say this, back in 1994 we were in no position to make estimates of our chances to win. Why? we hadn't had any chance to win it for decades and it wasn't like we saw it coming either.

In 2006 we knew our value and position, it wasn't unexpected that we actually could win.
