So today is the big day! The day the most viewed sport in the WORLD begins the highly anticipated tournament that happens every 4 years. Although we will miss teams like Ireland, Greece, USA, Wales and Turkey. Power houses like Italy, Netherlands and Chile have also missed out to qualify. Making room for new teams like Egypt, Panama , Senegal and Tunisia. As we went over this on our last CornerKick Radio Podcast with Pistolaros and Money Marty here is the agreed outcomes from the crew.
Here are some surprises that may happen. Egypt may take 2nd in Group A. Peru may take 2nd in Group C. Group D is dubbed our Group of Death, although it looks like Argentina has it locked all three teams are in running for 2nd Iceland, Nigeria and Croatia. Switzerland can upset and take 2nd in Group E. Group G can be reversed with 1st and 2nd with Belgium and England. Poland can take 2nd in Group H.
In bracket play we have Portugal, France, Brazil, England, Spain, Argentina, Germany and Belgium advancing to Elite 8.
Our Final 4 are France, Brazil, Spain, and Germany.
In the Final is France vs Germany.
Germany has a ton of solid young core talent......but France has real depth and star power with possibily the best striking team in the Cup. We have France taking it all over Germany.
Happy World Cup Soccer Day! Enjoy the month of futbol and Happy Fathers Day!
