World Cup "Observations" 11: Predictions for Groups C and D

Group C Current Table
Team

 Colombia220051+46
 Ivory Coast21013303
 Japan201112−11
 Greece201103−31
  • 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
Team
PldWDLGFGAGDPts
 Costa Rica220041+36
 Italy21012203
 Uruguay210134−13
 England200224−20
  • 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 Su├írez. 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
