Group listings

Recommended Posts

Here's a rundown of the groups:

Group A - France, Mexico, Uruguay, S. Africa

Group B - Argentina, Greece, Nigeria, S. Africa

Group C - Algeria, Slovenia, England, United States

Group D - Australia, Ghana, Germany, Serbia

Group E - Cameroon, Netherlands, Denmark, Japan

Group F - Italy, New Zealand, Paraguay, Slovakia

Group G - Brazil, Ivory Coast, Portugal, N. Korea

Group H - Chile, Spain, Honduras, Switzerland

The top two teams in each group will advance. A win = 3 pts., a tie = 1 pt., a loss = 0 pts. If there is a tie in pts., usually the team with a higher win-loss ratio in terms of total goals will advance.

Who do you predict will advance from each group? Why?

With the new balls being used which lots of players don't like due to its erratic flight in the air and that the games are being played at altitude can make for an unpredictable tournament.

It's a "money" thing with Adidas winning the lucrative ball contract. It's called the "Jabulani" and most players don't like its unpredictable flight characteristecs.

Adidas will make more than a billion dollars they figure with this ball.

Ever play baseball and try to hit a knuckleball or kick around a beachball and watch it do crazy stuff in the air? Sort of like that. Goalkeepers are petrified.

Group C

1) Slovenia = 3 pts.

2) USA = 1 pt.

3) England = 1 pt.

4) Algeria = 0 pts.

Slovenia only needs one more win and a tie to make a strong case for themselves to advance out of this group. We'll see.
