Quite a bold feeling. They tend to disappoint when heavy expectations are placed on them the best example being 1994. Now they have lost their talisman in Falcao. Their coach Pekerman can commit harakiri at times. Overall they do have a reasonably balanced squad and the environmental conditions should help them but I still won't bet on them.

I'm interested to see how Bosnia do as well.

England as dark horse? The only way I can see them have any chance of going beyond quarters is if other big teams depart early as happened in WC 2002.

Belgium are being seriously overrated. Teams not been there and done that can rarely handle this kind of pressure. Second round is the maximum for them.

Bosnia is the interesting one. Some of us are likening them to Serbia and expect them to under-perform. However they could do better. For the time being though I have predicted Nigeria to come out of group F at the expense of them.

France I was rating very highly, even so high as to be my 4th favourites for the title and capable of beating Germany in the quarters but after Ribery's exit my confidence in them has decreased.

Portugal tend to over-perform. I would certainly not count them out. Also it's not just about Cristiano. They are a very solid, hard working and resolute team that are very difficult to beat when it really counts.

What? This team has almost zero similarities with Lippi's WC 2010 team. Reaching Euro final and being so close to Confed final is not much of an improvement from being eliminated in the group stages at WC 2010?

Big surprise in the sense no one would have expected them to get 0 points and 0 goals but they will make that happen. Just kidding.

There are usually two teams you can never count out, no matter which players they take along: Germany and Italy.

It's one of the greatest truths in the entire history of international football.

Apologies, probably mine selective memory trying to discount Italy Razz They are different style and playing more attractive than 2010. On paper though they are not great for me. But ur all right, they should be respected as always since they got the experience and mentality to perform in the big tournaments.

Part of me dont want to see them succeed so soon though cos of how they won 2006 WC, would much prefer most other teams to win it tbh.

after 42 votes Brazil and Arg leading the way with Germany and Spain just behind.... it will not be much surprising if that happens truly though Italy can jump on the boat as well. I don think France can make the top four...

In these votes it's Germany and Italy who are sharing third place with Spain further behind.

I had France in my top four but after Ribery's injury on one hand I want to redo my predictions and on the other hand I am too lazy to change.

I found an interesting map today that helps me illustrate the point about Argentina's weather vs Brazil's:

http://birthoffootball.techstepsolutions.co.uk/

Notice how the large majority of players are born in subtropical weather. Argentines have no more weather advantage than a Spanish, Sicilian, Texan or Australian.

Just can't see how any defense can stop that quartet of Higuain, Di Maria, Messi and Aguero. With Lavezzi as a supersub.

And 3 World class defenders in Mascherano, Garay and Zabaleta at the back

Has anyone mentioned just how *bleep* Brazil are if Neymar gets injured or doesn't perform? Oscar is way out of form and Hulk can't carry a team.

Out of all the elite NT's in this tournament, they're the team the most reliant on a single player (apart from Portugal anyway).

to be honest Gil I have always rated Palacio better than Lavezzi , it has nothing to do with Inter , I thought it also when he was to Genoa and not called in Seleccion . Infact I wanted him and not Lavezzi in 2012. And the results proved my thought  because he  was called  for Brazil 2014. :coffee:
He has always scored more than Lavezzi in Serie A, even when Gasperini put it far from attack .  Scored same goals than Higuain with no penalty kicks this year . Lavezzi has scored 17 goals in 3 years probably Laughing
Palacio is s more intelligent and he has most ability to play football  ( " poor man's Milito "  hmm ) while Lavezzi is definitely more speed.
Oh yes , Lavezzi is always Chelsea killer but I don't think it is a quality, just a tradition.

I don't care about performances in NT, probably Martin Palermo has scored more goals than Diego Milito

To be honest, Palacio looked far more sharper than Lavezzi (whom i never liked)...If fit, palacio should be the super sub not lavezzi....

If we (Argentina of course, who else  Cool ) can get past that cursed QF stage then its gonna be our year. Dont really matter who we will come up against, we somehow will find a way to mess it up in the quarter final. Such is that jinx Mad: Players will be wary of that, and it will take something special to get out of it. Portugal, Germany and all can easily beat us there. But if we can make it to the semis, we will see a different Argentina.. quote me on that.

The team when compared to the past two editions I think is much better and cohesive. Last time under Maradona especially 🤦it was like 11 players on the pitch playing 11 different way. So Sabella is a huge upgrade in that regard.

Also on the Left back position I heard Marcos Rojo is a nightmarish weak link. Is he that bad a player? He is rated 4 out of 10 in the fantasy league. pale
Anyone care to shed some light on him ? Dont exactly know much about the guy.

I think Germany will be the best European team and they can reach as far as the final. but wont win it. Laughing

Spain will be a flop and they will struggle to get out of that group. Btw I am surprised I havent seen a single comment about the Dutch on this thread. On their day they can beat anybody and can even top that group ahead of Spain. And in Chile you will find your dark horse, quote me again on that as well. Smile

Italy is an interesting case. But then again thats the toughest group by a fraction. England is not certainly going to be pushover like many here are thinking. If Italy can get out of that group alive then they can reach as far the Semis.

France has the easiest draw   Shocked  Its like they can rest their main players and field their B team in the group games to prevent further injury. Such is the mediocrity of that group.Swiss will be their only challenge and that again is a very manageable challenge. So they should reach the QF. But anything beyond that well I am not so sure. But yea with France we never know.  pirat 

I want Begium and Japan to do well. Hopefully they can reach QF.

Portugal true, they are much stronger than many people are thinking they are. and they will always try to punch above their weights. A semi spot wont be surprising at all and especially if its Argentina who they are up against in the QF pale.  And also in this world cup they will be getting massive support, probably more than of all the European teams from the locals.

And Lastly Brazil, well they are going to be one of the finalists. Weather they will win it or not is a whole different thing.

This is why I am praying for an Argentina vs Portugal match (on the condition that Pepe is 100% fit)

I think it would be the most epic WC game in a years hmm

We have to be emotionally prepared for that. Seriously who is ging to stop those *bleep*.

2 teams in the CL final, 2 teams paired in the EL semi with one winning the thing.

They're simply above anyone else.

Brazil and Argentine will have a say in it of course, Brazil has to be favourite, but honestly... *bleep* SPAIN. AGAIN.
