Spain’s midfield and Argentina’s forwards are absolutely loaded (Argentina also has Aguero, who is probably their best attacker after Messi, and Higuain in addition to those TTTYo mentioned). Those two look like the favourites, with Germany and Brazil right behind. Spain has also added some striker talent since they won Euros. When Villa was out with injury, they played sometimes with six midfielders, but now they have more depth with improvement from Pedro, Negredo, and a few others. Argentina has an advantage of playing on their home continent, though.
South America in general looks really strong right now. All of the teams they qualified could make a run in the tournament. Colombia has especially looked good. I think aside from the four biggest favourites, Colombia and Belgium might be the teams to watch.
That’s awesome. Never met any other person from there. Unfortunately, I have never been there myself, but my family originates from there (from my Great-Grandfather and onward). My grandfather is actually an American, but was born an Italian. After him, everyone has been American.
Actually, my family has a very interesting story. If anybody would like to here it, PM me or reply.
ohhh I’ve been there twice I’m 2nd gen Croatian my grandpa was born in a part of Italy that is now is part of Croatia he speaks both my mom speaks Croatian and german ( shes also first gen german her mom is from there ) and i speak only german my mom says i have no use for Croatian but i have met a lot of relatives from there its truly a beautiful country theres a huge area by me thats mostly Croatians
Just watched the World Cup group draw. There are a couple really tough groups–B looks like the worst, and D is pretty tough as well. Group E looks like the weakest–France has to love that draw. Ecuador is probably the weakest South American team in the tournament, but that group also gives them a decent chance to advance.
Brazil and Argentina got pretty good draws as well. Spain is in the group of death and Germany has a fairly strong group.
I just saw them too. I think Spain and Brazil are definitely the winner of their group because of their skill level. Also, USA might have a tough time with Germany but then again you never know. And no!! England and Italy are in the same group lol
Brazil v Croatia is the opening match. Mexico opens against Cameroon. I think that is actually a pretty good draw for Mexico. Brazil will be tough to beat, but they only need to finish second in the group to advance. Having to beat out Croatia and Cameroon gives them a better chance of advancing to the knockout round than most of the other groups would have.
