Happy with Germany’s draw.  Their group has a whole is likely one of the top two but nobody that should overly threaten.  If they take care of their business then it opens things up to the semi-finals with the Swiss likely awaiting in the Ro16 and Poland/Colombia/England the likely QF opponent.

Now if Brazil and/or Belgium fail to win their group then that all changes.

Pretty simple to see which squads advance.

Yeah, agreed for the most part.  You could take the first two teams in every group and probably do well.  E, F and H have possible upset teams in second place but for the most part the favorites should advance.  Sleepers for me are Senegal and Serbia.  Group E is my toughest all those teams are fairly tough.  Group D a close second in difficulty.

Am I the only one that thinks Portugal is going to have a scare? I still expect them to go through but if they open up with Spain the way they did with Germany four years ago and Iran/Morocco is not a draw then things could get interesting for a few days.

Not seeing Iran or Morocco hanging with Portugal or Spain.  Now, Argentina is amazingly talented but that group could be tricky for them.

    • as usual you live in your imaginary world avoid of reality 
    • Quote The U.S. Department of Agriculture proposed new rules Tuesday to limit access to food stamps for households with savings and other assets, a measure that officials said would cut benefits to about 3 million people. In a telephone call with reporters, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and Acting Deputy Under Secretary Brandon Lipps said the proposed new rules for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) were aimed at ending automatic eligibility for those who were already receiving federal and state assistance. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/07/23/usda-proposes-snap-change-that-would-push-million-americans-off-food-stamps/?utm_term=.93c1ac2af98f   you might want to read the rest of the article... here is a couple more excerpts  USDA officials told the call the proposal was aimed at closing a loophole that was famously exploited by a wealthy Minnesota man, Rob Undersander, who claims he received food stamps for 19 months despite owning significant assets such as property and bank accounts. The article didnt say how much assets the Minnesota man had     No one knows what the Qualification Levels will be so how does anyone know 3 million people will be cut off ? The USDA officials had no specifics on the financial cutoff for their proposal.
