Who Will Advance from the World Cup Group Stage?

 Who Will Advance from the World Cup Group Stage?

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to make your predictions for the 2010 World Cup. Who will advance from each group, and who will go on to win the tournament?

The top two teams from each group will advance past the Group Stage and into the round of 16. Then it’s into the quarter-finals, then semi-finals and finally, the World Cup Final on July 11.

During the past week, you’ve probably been listening to the World Cup Buzz Podcast where Richard Farley, Kartik Krishnaiyer and Laurence McKenna have been making their predictions and telling us who they think will go through each group. Now it’s your turn.

Please go ahead and review the following groups and then post in the comments section below who YOU think will advance from each group and who will win the tournament. After the tournament ends, let’s see who ends up being the closest to getting all of the answers right!

The groups are:

Group A:

  • France
  • Mexico
  • South Africa
  • Uruguay

Group B:

  • Argentina
  • Greece
  • Nigeria
  • Korea Republic

Group C:

  • England
  • Algeria
  • Slovenia
  • United States

Group D:

  • Germany
  • Serbia
  • Ghana
  • Australia

Group E:

  • Holland
  • Japan
  • Cameroon
  • Denmark

Group F:

  • Italy
  • New Zealand
  • Slovakia
  • Paraguay

Group G:

  • Brazil
  • Ivory Coast
  • Portugal
  • Korea DPR

Group H:

  • Honduras

  • Chile
  • Switzerland

Again, please post your answers in the comments section below.
