This week, we talked about the new FIFA World Cup game. Given my limited expertise in international soccer, I’m going to go ahead and predict the results of the entire World Cup, right here, right now. Not by simulating it in-game, no, I’m just going to guess. At least no one can really laugh at how terrible the picks are until July. Two teams advance from each group.
France wins the group, Mexico 2nd.
Korea wins the group, Argentina advances.
England wins the group, U.S. 2nd.
Germany wins the group, Ghana 2nd.
Netherlands wins the group, Cameroon 2nd.
Italy wins the group, Paraguay 2nd.
Portugal wins the group, Brazil advances.
Spain wins the group, Chile advances.
Round of 16 (winners in bold):
France v. Argentina
England v. Ghana
Netherlands v. Paraguay
Portugal v. Chile
Korea v. Mexico
U.S. v. Germany
Italy v. Cameroon
Spain v. Brazil
Argentina v. England
Netherlands v. Chile
Korea v. Germany
Italy v. Brazil
Argentina v. Netherlands
Italy v. Germany
Argentina v. Italy
Netherlands v. Germany
