Croatia and Nigeria 1,2?
You made a very powerless enemy today...
Oh wow that is an out there prediction!
Wishing you all the best with that
I have the utmost belief that Iceland will surprise once again!
I'm thinking Peru is going to be the Iceland of 2016
I have to remember to go reenter mine tomorrow, when I went to save it last time something kept going wrong
I would expect a post-Euro letdown for Iceland. Nigeria is shallow and overrated. If Argentina didn’t qualify from their group I would be absolutely shocked.
I don’t think Argentina will get eliminated in the group stage, but there’s always one big team that doesn’t make it out of the group stage and of all the big teams they seem the most susceptible to crashing out early.
Well, England has to **** it up to manage to underachieve their low-expectations...if that counts as a big team.
And I'm still feeling Morocco to pull a shock over Portugal. I just love all of that midfield talent and how well they are coached.
Just joined, good luck everyone.
And I could see Portugal crash out of the World Cup as a letdown to that unlikely run they made in the Euros.
Who knows, that’s what I love about the World Cup. It’s so exciting and the upsets are always awesome, predicting them is damn hard though.

I can see Poland or Senegal topping the group, but I have a much tougher time seeing Colombia not at least getting 2nd :-/ I'm really bullish on them & Uruguay. Both have a nice mix of young talent coming in around the veteran stars, with some good prime age guys to round out their teams.
Love the Colombian CBs, Mina & Sanchez; love that James n Falcao duo spearheading their attack; and they've got some really pizzaz in the wide areas from Cuadrado & Arias on the right and whoever ends up winning the spots on the left. With Barrios settling into one of their 6 spots, my only real gripe is that pekerman tends to use a second 6 next to him...and that Tello hasn't developed quickly enough give them the sort of creative 8 that I think they lack to be a truly top team.
Goldman Sachs (don't they rule the world anyway?) let some computer make a prediction based on every available data of each team:
Ger - Eng
Fra - Spa
Bra - Bel
Por - Arg
Ger - Por
Bra - Fra
Deutschland wird nicht Weltmeister: Goldman Sachs hat KI die WM berechnen lassen
Has these ever been accurate or even semi accurate... they can't be, considering theres no human element to it.
Here's my attempt, for some reason I've got England making a deep run. Bound to happen eventually, maybe this is their year - to lose in the finals.
Sure to be wrong!
Uruguay over Portugal
France over Croatia
Brazil over Mexico
Belgium over Poland
Spain over Egypt
Argentina over Denmark
Germany over Switzerland
Colombia over England
France over Uruguay
Brazil over Belgium
Argentina over Spain
Germany over Colombia
Brazil over France
Germany over Argentina
Brazil over Germany

I discovered it did save my bracket despite reporting errors so I'm in the league. Not going to bother posting here though because my picks are pretty uninspiring.
