WC 2014: 14th June

Colombia v/s Greece. The South Americans have a massive hole in the striking department with the loss of Radamel Falcao to injury. However, they should still considered a force in a group that does not look that strong. Greece had to rely on a play-off win against Romania to reach Brazil and I think they will struggle to go past this group. This might end up as the first draw of this tournament.

Ivory Coast v/s Japan. This looks another even match-up with both teams boasting potent attacks but questionable defences. This should be a match with goals and again it would not be surprising to see this one end in a draw as well.

Uruguay v/s Costa Rica. Obviously, how far Uruguay goes in the tournament will depend upon the availability and fitness of Luis Suarez. They must beat Costa Rica to have any chance of going to the knockout stage. They should win this one with or without their superstar striker.

England v/s Italy. I think Italy's odds to win the group and this game are way too low. I think they will have their difficulties in this group; in fact I mentioned earlier that they might not make it past this group. Like so many of previous encounters between these 2 nations, there is a high probability that this match will also end in a draw. If not, I think England can very will win this.

Win: Uruguay
Draw: Columbia/Greece, Ivory Coast/Japan, England/Italy
