Strange year. The European powerhouses are putting in poor performances, some of them getting eliminated even before the final 16. While teams that are typically underdogs are advancing.

There's a strong chance it's going to be a South American finals.

What we have seen with Italy and France is a mix of arrogance and complacency. Both failed to renew their teams, showed up with the squads that did well 4 years ago and just assumed they were better than the others.

It could well be a South American final. But, England, Germany, Spain, Netherlands and Portugal are still there. It ain't over yet.

You make a good point. Every team is fit, well drilled, well organized and disciplined. The weaker teams are set out to be hard to beat. So, it takes something a bit more special to do it.
