It's hard to believe but the next World Cup is coming already in the summer...

Three ridiculous groups (E,F,H), three dynamite groups (B,D,G) and two average groups (A,C).
It's a pity because we will see some weak teams in the last 16 and some strong teams eliminated in the group stage.


Group A:

Brazil,
Croatia,
Mexico,
Cameroon.

Group B:

Spain,
Netherlands,
Chile,
Australia.

Group C:

Colombia,
Greece,
Ivory Coast,
Japan.

Group D:

Uruguay,
Costa Rica,
England,
Italy.

Group E :

Switzerland,
Ecuador,
France,
Honduras.

Group F:

Argentina,
Bosnia-Hercegovina,
Iran,
Nigeria.

Group G:

Germany,
Portugal,
Ghana,
USA.

Group H:

Belgium,
Algeria,
Russia,
South Korea.
But we can't be quite sure.

I guess some teams will be very lucky.

I'd like to save my predictions for later because there's a lot of teams I know little about at the moment.
But we can't be quite sure.

Well, go ahead with yours :-)

If you watch the attached image you'll see I predicted 1st and 2nd place of every group.

ABout the matches Uruguay vs Ivory Coast (won by Uruguay) and Nigeria vs Switzerland (won by SW) I predict they will win by a lucky goal after suffering the whole match.

Well, it is too early for the predictions, but some early thoughts:

- yes, I agree with BJ on the strength of the groups
- 2nd spot is very open in Group A behind Brazil
- it's obvious, Spain and Netherlands in B...
- ridiculous Group C, anybody can qualify
- no chance for CRC, but I can't guess how the other 3 teams will finish... I hope England will fly home early (Group D)
- maybe Switzerland and France from E... though I'm not really sure
- in Group F, Argentina first, Iran last
- Group G: Germany, Portugal, for sure
- Group H: the same comment as for Group C
- 1 or 2 big surprises may happen again
- winner will be Brazil, good medal chance for Argentina, Germany, Spain... or for a surprise team

This is my (very) early tip

Group A: Brazil will have a complicated 1st half against Cameroon but will solve everything in the 2nd. Easy wins vs. Croatia and Mexico. Cameroon will beat Croatia and secure 2nd place, all of them beating Mexico easily.


Group B: This is a much tighter group than it seems. Chile can surprise any team if they have a good day (just remember Spain-Chile in SA 2010). And Spain is not nearly as good as back then.
The Neds should win this group, but it won't be easy. Spain will earn 2nd place by goal difference over Chile


Group C: Colombia will win easily. Ivory Coast is best of the rest.


Group D: Uruguay, England and Italy will beat Costa Rica. Uruguay will get draws against England and Italy, with Italy beating the English and winning the group, leaving Uruguay in 2nd place and waving England goodbye.


Group E : France, easily. Ecuador vs. Switzerland will decide 2nd place. My bet is Ecuador.


Group F: Argentina will win without any doubts (hopefully!), Nigeria will be 2nd.


Group G: Cristiano is really good (againts my liking) but he alone cannot beat the Teutons nor the "black stars" . Germany will be 1st, Ghana 2nd.


Group H: Russia vs. Belgium will decide 1st and 2nd.

Okay, that kind of predictions are okay to make now. I thought we were talking about exact match result predictions.

But I almost totally agree with Chulk.

Where I don't agree:
Group A: Croatia will qualify and not Cameroon.
Group B: Spain will win this group.
But we can't be quite sure.
