Anyway:

A: 1. Uruguay 2. Russia
B: 1. Spain 2. Portugal
C: 1. France 2. Peru
D: 1. Argentina 2. Nigeria
E: 1. Brazil 2. Switzerland
F: 1. Germany 2. South Korea
G: 1. England 2. Belgium
H: 1. Colombia 2. Poland

Group H is the most evenly matched. Most exciting group in my opinion. Group F isn't the group of death. Germany will obviously go through. Sweden barely made it, eliminating the weakest and most disorganized Italy side I've ever seen. South Korea will go through. They're are tactically sound and Son is a superstar. Argentina actually have a difficult group. Nigeria has always given argentina trouble. they beat us and if we do beat them, it is with an extreme amount of effort. They are just physically overpowering. Croatia will dominate the midfield. It'll be argentine forwards vs croatian midfield. i guess we'll see if having class strikers outweighs midfield......i''m hoping it does....and iceland, they've had a good campaign and an established starting 11, something argentina doesn't have. i feel they will surprise us all. their style of play is fast and i'm hoping they play an open game. argentina can adapt to any style of play. but once a team opens up against argentina, they're done for. getting a goal against argentina is really tough as well, that's why at the WC, we always end up with a 1-0 win. but as we've seen, legendary teams usually go through. 1 legend can change the game. iceland doesn't have that. hopefully they won't crumble under pressure. experience is what matters at the WC.

Argentina might have a tough time. England have NO excuses for not getting out of group stages.

Based on both history and recent performance, I think you're slighting Mexico considerably there.

Group E looks really tough. I wouldn't be surprised to see any of those teams advance (although I think Serbia may be a bit older now). There's always one team no one expects to make it through. If I had to guess based on draw alone, Egypt or Australia seem the probable candidates for that. As for the one big team that always goes down, I'm going to go with one of Uruguay or Argentina. Those are both pretty nasty groups.

well f*ck...

btw, we need to do a separate prediction thread like we did for last WC with the whole tournament being sorted. Im already starting to get so hyped about it!

A: Uruguay, Russia
B: Spain, Portugal
C: France, Denmark
D: Croatia, Argentina
E: Brazil, Serbia
F: Germany, Sweden
G: England, Belgium
H: Poland, Colombia

Group Cs 2nd place can be anyone really..
Group D can be a real struggle for Argentina, and I wouldn't be surprised if they en up 2nd or having a hard time going through. Croatia, Nigeria and Iceland can be a real threat for them.

History of failure. Once they exit their little bubble (concacaf), they crumble. always have, always will. great chance for lozano to get more exposure, that's about about it. Chile is miles ahead of mexico. i'd rather see all 10 south american nations at the WC and none of the concacaf nations.

You do know that Mexico has made it out of the group for the last 40 years right?

they can make it out of the group all they want. they ain't winning anything. you remember the teams that win trophies, not the teams that "made it out of the group for the last 40 years "

i also think everyone is overestimating croatia. they are always super weak at WCs.

What the hell, I've been active on the forum for the last weeks and suddenly someone get more reply to all of my thread in less than 3 hour. XD

But joking aside, I had no idea that the draw already came out, thanks for the share Croatian my man, you did good there. :D

Also, nice to see Gonzi out of his hiding spot for once, been too long since he was active on the forum, cheer! :D

Here are my prediction:
Group A: 1. Russia 2. Uruguay
Group B: 1. Spain 2. Portugal (tough it could very easily be the other way around)
Group C: 1. France 2. Peru
Group D: 1. Iceland 2. Argentina (controversial prediction but I'll stand by them for the time being)
Group E: 1. Brazil 2. Switzerland
Group F: 1. Germany 2. Mexico (Sweden could also beat Mexico to second spot, will be interesting to see who come on top)
Group G: 1. Belgium 2. England (and hopefully, Panama in fourth :P)
Group H: 1. Colombia 2. Poland

@quikzyyy @pelle Lol, hopefully, they really do make that international tournament, it would be great.

BTW Group E and C second spot could be quite interesting, most open group for second spot imo. And its weird karma that Mexico whose fan praised Sweden for eliminating Netherland before WC will now have them as biggest rival for a second spot finish. :P
