As unpredictable as the group stage has been, the 2nd round brackets have lined up in a way favorable for the likes of Argentina, Brazil and Holland. Argentina has looked poor in the group stage but will likely defeat Switzerland and the winner of US/Belgium. Brazil has also looked poor in the group stage but should defeat Chile and Colombia/Uruguay. Though Mexico is a formidable opponent, Holland should defeat them and will most certainly defeat Costa Rica/Greece. My fourth semi-finalist is Germany, who will most likely meet a tough opponent in France in the QFs, but will probably make it to their 4th straight WC semis.

It's not what you think...in all likelihood France will advance to the QFs. Even if Nigeria does advance, Germany will be favored.

An Argie win against Switzerland is not a foregone conclusion. Switzerland are the kind of organized European team that can give Argentina fits with set-pieces, counter-attacking and excellent defending.

I think France could beat Germany, but I have a feeling Mexico will make the semis.

What i know is this knock out stage will have some big surprise like the group stage that no one believe Spain will head home or Italy and England both heading home.
So i hope it goes this way
1)France open yash against SE.
2)Argentina open yash against the Switz
3)Germany open yash against Algeria
4)Chile knock out Brazil.
5)Belgium open yash against USA
That way Algeria and Nigeria face each and the winner head to semi.
USA stand a chance to head in the semi and face Nigeria.
Wow Papa God do it for us oooh

Correct. Either Argie click and decimate them, or its a 1-nil shut out, 2 by the whistle, Shaqiri on the break. The Americas lose atleast two in the next round. Paddy Power? Chai, madam no dey watch, mek I put am small small. Diaris God o!

I'm thinking Holland v Argentina and Brazil v Germany at this point. I have France as a dark horse semifinalist.

In the final, I'd love to see Argentina vs Brazil. I'm thinking Argentina for sure, but believe it or not, I think Brazil can be beaten before then, although it's still not likely.

It seems that Mess has an opportunity to be Maradona...and join Diego and Pele in debates as to whom was the greatest ever. Or maybe that's me wishfully thinking for this kind of football drama?

:)

I'm biased towards extraordinary players.

Cheers, Mate
