No big match up.

Even the quarters don't look that good bar a possible France v Germany match.

I think Colombia has more of a team but it will depend a lot on wheter Suàrez will get suspended or not.

Costa Rica v Greece is a tough one.

Greece were decent v Ivory Coast tbf and deserved to win and go through.

I reckon they can take Costa Rica. Got to get behind the Europeans tbh.

Decent but had this Ivory Coast team known how to play as a team, Greece wouldn't have had much of a chance imo.


Karagounis' strike would have been a sick goal though.

Brazil will go through. Maybe with a questionable decision or two, but they won't be eliminated so early.

Colombia all the way. Suárez will be banned, and Uruguay have no chance without him.

Netherlands seems the obvious choice, but Mexico won't be easy to break. It'll be a match. Still choosing Netherlands, though.

Costa Rica. Costa Rica. Costa Rica. Costa Rica. :Peace: Vamos los Ticos! Greece will be hard to break, as they are a well organized team like us, but I think we edge them in midfield and offensive talent. We also have a top keeper if needed (only beaten by a Cavani penalty kick until now). Campbell and Ruiz will show their stuff here.

France. They'll get a fight, but will go through.

Argentina carried by Messi once again.

EDIT: Adding the last two matches

USA will provide the surprise of the round. Belgium has looked lethargic against bad opposition, as talented as their squad is. The Gringos will punish them.

Germany will probably destroy Algeria, but you never know in this WC. An upset would be interesting, but I don't see that happening here.

Brazil - Brazil is going to be outplayed in this one but somehow claim a victory because of home nation advantage.
Colombia - Uruguay is so average without Suarez. Colombia to win this on a Sunday jog.
France - France has way too much firepower for Nigeria to cope with.
Germany - Algeria will put in a spirited display, but the Germans will prove too much in the end.
Netherlands - Mexico will surprise a lot of people and keep it close until the end, but the Netherlands will show that extra bit of quality.
Costa Rica - Costa Rica's magical run will last one more game. Greece will go down early and never have an answer for Los Ticos.
Argentina - Messi, Di Maria, Aguero, and Higuain will cut through Switzerland's defense like a Swiss army knife.
United States - Like Costa Rica, the USA's run will last one more game. It will be a hard fought game filled with drama ending in penalties.

Agüero is out for the rest of the Cup, fyi. Still, too much firepower, even though their defense is awful.

EDIT: My bad. Apparently, he has not been completely ruled out of the WC, but he is out vs the Swiss.
