    Germany and Mexico.

    Mexico have been really consistent in getting out of these groups and then getting eliminated in the round of 16.

    Korea will be happy to get a point from three matches. They're not much chop these days, Germany could put 4 past them easy

    And outside of Forsberg, Sweden are shit house. If Mexico **** it up from here then it's a massive choke from them.

    Agreed. Sweden were like jekyll and Hyde during qualifying. They're rubbish and I don't rate them at all.

    But it is the cup. And it is 7 months on from qualifying. Who knows. On form they don't make it but.

    South Korea playing Germany last (when they've likely already qualified) is potentially what could send them through. Germany could use the opportunity to play some second stringers

    The worst thing that happened to Australia in South Africa was playing the Germans first up

    The problem is Germany's second stringers won last years Confed cup trouncing Mexico in the semis and beating Chile in the final. It all depends on the germans mentality.

    Germany as usual, efficient, disciplined, tough, disciplined, calculating, disciplined.

    They just top their pool you’d think all but certainly.

    Second place interesting Sweden v Mexico tells the tale here.

    Unsure Koreans can muster to a top two.

    I do enjoy watching the German efficient discipline. Kind of poetic in a way.

    What Sweden lack in talent they make up with their organisation. They knocked out Italy in the qualifiers. I think they are chance to go past Mexico and go the next phase.

    Austria 2-1 Germany. Germany were up 1-0. Austria have won 5 or 6 of all their newly managed games.

    Means shit. Austria are still **** all and Germany will go close to winning the world cup.
