2014 World Cup: Group E

France 2-1-0 (+6) 7

Switzerland 2-0-1 (+1) 6

Ecuador 1-1-1 (EV) 4

Honduras 0-0-3 (-7) 0

 

Arguably the weakest group in the tournament, there are a lot of possibilities her.  Are the Swiss actually as good as their FIFA ranking suggests?  Can the French put things together and make a run?  How much will playing on their home continent help Ecuador?  Will Honduras be able to pull an upset like their fellow CONCACAF member Costa Rica?

 

While I am not expecting them to go too far, I do have Switzerland winning the group.  At that point they would likely have a very winnable game in the Round of 16 before going out to Germany in the quarters.  I have Ecuador edging France for second.  Regardless of who finishes second though I do not see them being much of a threat to Argentina in the Round of 16.

I am really liking the way Japan looks at this point. Up 1-0 and looking pretty decent in possession.

You forgot to mention my Uruguay to the finals pick, haha.  After how successful I was four year ago maybe I am about to be equally as awful.  If so I am going to change my picks to have Portugal and Ghana coming out of G
