    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.

    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.

    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. :laugh:

    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.
