Prescene 20 - World Cup Predictions

Based on the grouping, I believe that England would be in a good position to at least reach the World Cup semi-final. On the other hand, Brazil would have to battle their way through the various stages of the finals.

I predict a mouth-watering final between Brazil and Spain, with Brazil becoming the eventual World Cup Champion again.

Here’s my prediction, and how I am going to track by success rate:-

(1 point for each correct last-16 team, 1 point for correct group winner – 24 points in total)

Uruguay (Winner A) vs Nigeria (Second B) Actual: Uruguay vs South Korea 2pts
England (Winner C) vs Australia (Second D) Actual: United States vs Ghana 1pt
Holland (Winner E) vs Paraguay (Second F) Actual: Holland vs Slovakia 2pts
Brazil (Winner G) vs Chile (Second H) Actual: Brazil vs Chile 3pts
Argentina (Winner B) vs South Africa (Second A) Actual: Argentina vs Mexico 2pts
Germany (Winner D) vs United States (Second C) Actual: Germany vs England 3pts
Italy (Winner F) vs Cameroon (Second E) Actual: Paraguay vs Japan 0pt
