- Colombia to beat Japan by two goals, say, 2-0. Japan not threatening at all, unless Honda randomly decides to show up.
- Ivory Coast to snatch a grinding 2-1 win over Greece.
Group D Current Table
- I hear that England is fielding a fresh team of youngsters. Costa Rica to beat England 1-0. Otherwise I might have said a draw.
- Uruguay to defeat Italy, say, 2-1, courtesy of Luis Suárez. Given his marked impact against England, I expect more of the same clutch display against Italy (though perhaps it is unreasonable to expect so much of him).
- Costa Rica to finish on top
