I hope the Colombian Narco Dollars dont go past the 1st Stage, but then again Blatter has his worldwide banking account full of the nasty money, why would he care if they go all the way ?? He's set for lIFE

I agree now or never for Japan. So they have my vote, even though i don't know if they will get through. Pekerman is a great coach.

Colombia and Japan.

2nd spot is wide open. Japan tends to be a tricky team at the World Cups.

Greece and IVC have struggled but anything can happen.

Everyone is complaining about the quality of this group, but it is by far one of the most interesting in the tournament. All above average teams, without any drastic differences in quality between them. It should theoretically be a tight group with much drama.

I actually can't name any other groups that are similar to this description, good quality teams without more than a single sinificant deviation in quality between all four.

Group D had Costa Rica (half as good as the others), Group G has Germany (twice as good as US and Ghana), Group E has Honduras, etc...
