Really hope Croatia gets through. Rakitic, Kovacic and Modric midfield Proud

Think Brazil and Croatia will go through. Mexico to complete bottle job it and finish last.

Honestly the only one i think will easily pass on through is Brazil, the rest of the three are hit and miss, Croatia has many good players, and you can never count out african teams, so physical
Mexico has been under a bad spell lately.

This, this, totally agree
This is going to be a hell of a fun group to watch because that 2nd place spot is going to be tight.

I'm going to be honest, I don't know how good Cameroon are nowadays but seeing as no one is predicting them to finish 2nd, I imagine Croatia/Mexico are better. Mexico will all respect is not very good from what I've seen. Can't see past Brazil/Croatia to qualify, honestly.

Brazil to flop and Croatia to come 1st?
They have a GOAT midfield trio and a good attack, solid defense and are good overall.

Brazil and Croatia to go through, I don't think Mexico or Cameroon can beat them.

Brazil is of course going through, but I just hope Croatia would score first in the opening match against Brazil. How thrilling would that be?

This happened on my World Cup playthrough. Rakitic scored an unstoppable chip before an Oscar goal and Neymar brace killed of the false hopes hmm

Avoiding Brazil until a potential final is probably for the best. Argentina and France could potential be opponents for the winner of this group as well.

What? If you finish 2nd you get Argentina in the quarters. If you finish 1st you get France. Who would you rather have? You want to finish 2nd just to avoid a potential semi with Brazil and take on Spain or Italy instead. This Brazil team is seriously being overrated at this forum. I say a semi is too far away to plan for.





Sorry bro but no one will want to play Brazil until the final. In a final anything can happen and the pressure will be ridiculously high but before then I can't see Brazil losing a game, not when they have shown that they raise their level with their high intensity football.

imo Germany/Portugal can beat Spain/Argentina and reach the final.

So with purely the final in mind I'd much rather face Argentina than Brazil on paper.

Of course I could be completely wrong about this and a team should never think about not winning or getting a result when they play any game.


Your perspective is certainly interesting but as you said that does not mean anyone should plan to come 2nd in the group.

BTW do you all think this Brazil team is better than the one at WC 2010. What is better?

You said Brazil don't look like they will lose any time before the final. Is it mainly because of the host factor or because of how good they are? WC 2010's Brazil looked invincible to me but still they lost.

I think there's a fairly good chance that Spain will finish second in group B, it's such a tight group, and therefore meet Brasil in the last-16. And the winner of that match is likely to face Colombia in the last-8, imo, so Brasil's road isn't that easy. Maybe.

Our 2010 starting team was invincible,we would probably have reached the final and win vs Spain with our devastating counters.We lost because we didn't have a bench.We had to play Alves in midfield with half-injured Kaka.Gilberto fcking Silva was our replacement for Ramires who was suspended lol not to mention we thought the game was already won by our great 1st half and got complacent.This time around we have a great bench and since we are playing home, the fans won't let the players get complacent.

the last time we lost a official game in home soil was in 1957.I think we only lost twice at home actually, in 1950 and in 1957.
