Here is the full draw ;




Arabs and African teams got a really bad draw :|

I think Nigeria is the only African team that maybe able to make it to the next round ..

I think Russia and Urguay will make it from the first group.

I think people are selling Nigeria too high. They have some great pace on the break, but they tend to collapse during tournaments and don't have what it takes to sustain pressure.

This is what I got after I have the group stages ending. Russia bound to get some favorable calls to get out of the group.

Both sides evenly matched this side so this WC going to have some great matchups.

Group D is the toughest group

All the other groups are manageable (talking about big NTs)

sucks for both Morocco and Iran.
Morocco is my favorite African team, they tend to perform really well against top opponents .. they are not to be estimated ..

Morocco might have a chance of beating out Portugal who tend to play quite defensively with their coach.

Ghana also nearly went to the semi-final in 2010. Deserved to progress in that game, but in a one-off a lot of strange things can happen.

I would have Egypt ahead of Russia in my prediction above, but just have this feeling they'll find a way to make Russia go through.
