KRISTIAN’S picks for the 2014 FIFA World Cup

2014 WORLD CUP BRACKET, KBU

GROUP STAGES

GROUP A
1 BRAZIL
2 CROATIA
Notes:

 

GROUP B
1 SPAIN
2 NETHERLANDS
Notes:

 

GROUP C
1 IVORY COAST
2 GREECE

FBL-CAN-AFR2006-CIV-DROGBA
Notes: Ivory Coast take the top spot.

 

GROUP D
1 ENGLAND
2 ITALY

England v Ukraine - Group D: UEFA EURO 2012
Notes: England will get through to the second round.  They have some new, interesting players in the two Southampton boys, Lallana and Shaw, whom I believe could make a creative difference if they get picked to play.  Additionally, Sturridge and Sterling have had some great personal seasons.  Main weakness is the goalkeeper position, where Joe Hart hasn’t been convincing.

 

GROUP E
1 FRANCE
2 SWITZERLAND
Notes:

 

GROUP F
1 ARGENTINA
2 BOSNIS-HERZEGOVINA
Notes:

 

GROUP G
1 GERMANY
2 PORTUGAL
Notes:

 

GROUP H
1 BELGIUM
2 ALGERIA

belgium world cup
Notes: I do (as does everyone else) think that Belgium has a shot at doing really well.  They have a young, and very dangerous team, with almost a team full of all stars in the likes of Kompany, Chadli, Hazard, Lukaku, Curtois, Dembele, Fellaini, etc.
