World Cup Tips and Predictions

Group E

Honduras will not be easy to beat with all likelihood of them defending heavily and limiting the damage – don’t be surprised if they pull off surprise draws against the better sides. Ecuador equally are no pushovers and if the Swiss and French aren’t on their game, they could suffer embarrassing early exits. However, the extra quality they have should warrant progress

Group F

Argentina look likely to win all three games although there is always the chance of over-confidence. Bosnia interest me as they will probably score a few but could well concede plenty too; wary of them losing confidence and falling apart but they could be a decent dark horse

Nigeria and Iran will be lucky to pick up a point and I expect them to be fodder for the other two as I don’t think they have anywhere near enough quality to bother the favourites here

Group G

Another group where it is difficult to go against the obvious – Germany should qualify and win the group, Portugal may find it much harder. I have them down as qualifying but am wary of both the other two teams as they could easily get a result and make the USA Ghana game a big one in terms of progress. I have that down as a draw which won’t help either so if one of them can pick up 3 pts, that would really help them and put the pressure on Portugal

Group H

Hard to see past the big two here with Belgium and Russia likely to be level on points; the other two teams will make life difficult but ultimately the better quality should prevail
