Streep36Brazil and France in the finals. Brazil to win it

Most likely is that we face Brazil in the semis.
Funny how our group looks "easy", but it's actually the hardest by Elo ranking (which is bullshit).

I like that almost every group has an uncertain outcome, it's really hard to predict the top two teams in each group.

Do you have a spreadsheet where it says which winner of what group faces who somewhere?

France look like the obvious favourites, but you literally never knows whos going perform well in the tournament. Germany seem to always step in up in the big competitions, but they dont look that good recently. England will be wank (good young talent though).

fooqpi expect Russia to come to quarter finals the same way Sourth Korea did at 2002

Didnt Korea went into semis in 2002 ? Knocking out both Italy and Spain. No way Russia pulls the same trick off. Imo Egypt will get the 2nd spot along Uruguay.

Many people from outside of France see us as a strong candidate to the title, but here I'd say we are way more pessimistic, hopefully we are wrong !!

Anyway, I think i found this on twitter, but this spreadsheet has a lot of neat and trivia infos, I'll share it here, all credits to the author:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1y3euaZEGejut-omSgNFl_22l1dg2fpTwlRqXJauzlAE/edit#gid=152870686

And here are other trivias I found online, that you guys might enjoy:
Group H is the only group without a former winner of the World Cup.
4 out of 5 times, when France and Denmark face each other in a competition, the winner eventually wins the whole thing. The only time it didnt happen is the last time these two teams played one another in 2002.
In each of their 4 participations to a World Cup, Peru played against the winner-to-be. Yes omens are going in favor of France :D
5 out of 6 times Nigeria qualified for the World Cup, they ended up in the same group as Argentina. Talk about some tough luck (maybe not this time tho)

my point is that South Korea went too far at WC 2002 because of "too many mysterious mistakes" by referees
