I did one too

And this time Argentina got Iran, Russia and Italy. Much easier


switzerland and uruguay keep getting the easier groups, though

And again the group with USA and Chile is the hardest (this time they got germany)

I simulated my own. this one is my favorite because there are no groups of death and no cakewalk groups.

That one looks good to me! To be honest, I haven't really come across that many simulated groups of death yet, even though people say it's bound to happen for the next WC.

In your similation, I would say the following teams go through:

Group A
1. Brazil
2. Russia
3. Bosnia and Herzegovina
4. Iran

Group B
1. England
2. USA
3. Ecuador
4. Switzerland

Group C
1. Italy
2. Uruguay
3. Costa Rica
4. Algeria

Group D
1. Netherlands
2. Colombia
3. Ghana
4. Australia

Group E
1. Germany
2. Portugal
3. Cameroon
4. South Korea

Group F
1. Belgium
2. Chile
3. Japan
4. Greece

Group G
1. Argentina
2. Cote d'Ivoire
3. Croatia
4. Honduras

Group H
1. Spain
2. France
3. Nigeria
4. Mexico

England & USA in the same group again? It wouldn't be like the last WC. I would fancy the US to win this time. The US will surprise a few teams and may go far.

Lol, England are actually good - not world class as the English seem to think ..... but they have plenty of players that can unlock the USA's defences. They are a level above the US.

The same US team that got destroyed by Costa Rica ? They beat a deflated Mexico and a worthless Jamacia and Panama en route. The US run ins to the WC should always be straight forward, youre playing tiny countries that arent that good.

I dont think the US is as crap as most people make them out to be but theyre not a team that should be going far in the WC.
