WC 2014: June 13

Mexico v/s Cameroon. These are the 2 underdogs of the group. Mexico struggled to reach the finals and had to rely on an Intercontinental play-off win against New Zealand to make it. They now seem to be in better hands under coach Herrera than during the labourious qualifying stages. Cameroon are beset by off-field problems with the players and official rowing over bonus payments. This could very well end in a draw and if there is to be a winner, most probably it will be from the Mexicans.

Spain v/s Netherlands. This is a crucial game for supremacy in Group B. Both teams are expected to go through but the runner-up will be up to face the winner of Group A, which in most eventuality would be Brazil. So, this is a must-not-lose match for both teams. The two teams are well-balanced and not far apart, so I think this will end in a draw.

Chile v/s Australia. If Chile have any aspirations to go through, they must beat Australia. They are a strong team boasting top-level players like Vidal and Sanchez and they should have too much power for this Australian team. The South Americans are an outright win selection.

Win: Chile
Draw: Spain/Netherlands, Mexico/Cameroon
