Group A

1 Brazil
2 Croatia
3 Mexico
4 Cameroon

Commentary: Brazil will almost definitely finish first. Woe to whoever finishes second for Group B knockout match-up. Croatia, Mexico, Cameroon hard to separate.

Group B

1 Spain
2 Netherlands
3 Chile
4 Australia

Commentary: Spain vs Netherlands will probably be the best match of the group round. Both teams are a shoo-in to make it out.

Group C

1 Colombia
2 Greece
3 Cote D'Ivoire
4 Japan

Commentary: Positions 2-4 are hard to separate, but Colombia look like good bets to finish first. This might be Japan's chance to make some real noise.

Group D

1 Uruguay
2 Costa Rica
3 England
4 Italy

Commentary: Tough for Uruguay to get out of this group. One really good team will be going home disappointed. There doesn't appear to be much hope for the Costa Ricans.

Group E

1 Switzerland
2 Ecuador
3 France
4 Honduras

Commentary: Definitely the group of life. If France have their heads on straight, they should have no problems finishing first.

Group F

1 Argentina
2 Bosnia-Herzegovina
3 Iran
4 Nigeria

Commentary- Argentina should be ecstatic. Bosnia-Herzegovina look like they'll make it out of this group, too.

Group G

1 Germany
2 Portugal
3 Ghana

Commentary: Easily the Group of Death. The US should realistically be thinking that they beat Ghana, tie Portugal, hope to tie against Germany. Barring something crazy, this looks like it's Germany and Portugal's group to lose.

Group H

1 Belgium
2 Algeria
3 Russia
4 Korea Republic

Commentary: Belgium will have to work hard to not be upset by Korea or Russia. Korea and Russia should expect to go at it for that second spot.
