    TBF there’s always shocks and at least one team that goes further than expected. As I said earlier, teams and players playing against unfamiliar foes is part of the magic and uncertainty of the World Cup.

    But South Korea (you’ve got a typo and put Colombia) Nigeria and Russia all in the semis? No chance, haha.

    Tbh I think Portugal will do ok in the cup. The others times we played fabulously well and didn't win. So maybe this cup we might reach semi finals

    Okay my predictions are based on a computer model that used the latest soccer analytics.

    Such as..
    xGoal
    xSave
    xOffence
    xDefence

    Okay so here we go... everyone should bet everything they have on these.

    Group A
    Russia
    Egypt

    Group B
    Spain
    Iran

    Group C
    Denmark
    Peru

    Group D
    Argentina
    Nigeria

    Group E
    Brazil
    Serbia

    Group F
    Germany
    Sweden

    Group G
    Belgium
    Poland

    Group H
    Colombia
    Japan


    More to come once i figure out how the next round works

    Iíd love there to be a Portugal vs Argentina quarter final.

    I saw them play a friendly at Old Trafford a few years ago.

    Oh yeah same! I love the two players and I don't think one is better than the other because they play different games. Ronaldo is defo a great scorer. Messi as well but it's a different way. I just enjoy the two players while I can. And my prediction, Germany is going to win.

    They want world repping and fix it that way hoping to inspire non-power regions.

    I canít admit that Argentina might not make the next round, but thatís the one right now....

    Iceland had been pulling off great runs for three tournament cycles now, still donít get it...

    And Croatia has four of the top players in Europe currently, including my favourite Modric, who replaced Pirlo.

    In the final game could penalty kicks still decide the game?

    If so, that's pathetic.

    Thatís how it goes.

    Most of the time the weaker team has played for penalty kicks right from the start.
