Why does the US keep getting put in the same group as Ghana? Though Ghana isn't a high seed, they seem to always find a way to beat the US. If the United States can find a way to advance to the later rounds, I would love to see how the team USA would do against Brazil.

Ghana is just one of those teams that the US doesn't do well against. I feel that the United States would play Brazil pretty tough even though they are a much better team than Ghana is.

Here are my prediction's as of now, the day before the tournament starts I'll give my final predictions which shouldn't change to much but injuries and other unexpected changes might make a few changes here and there. As for the final i'm really undecided between Brazil and Argentina but since Brazil is at home i'll give it to them for now.
1 UEFA team in the Final 8?

You are so biased against Europe it's hilarious.

I'm shocked you didn't pick Ecuador to advance to the QF as well. I know it's statistically impossible but still.

In the deep of my football fan soul, there's a voice saying "Italy is a team that no one should ever look down on..."... EVERY TIME the entire world think Italy is over and done, Italians surprise. Who would have thought that they will reach the final of Eurocup? And, aside the final against Spain, they did a respectable tourney... I don't know, the logic says Brazil, Germany, Argentina, Spain... But I say: Italy. I don't forget the fact that they have simply the second best midfielder I've ever seen: Andrea Pirlo. Pirlo has already won a World Cup... It would be no absurd to win another, specially considering the very low level of the football played by all the favorites... Italians are smart, very smart playing football...

I know you have a hard time seeing but there are clearly 3 teams from UEFA in the Quarter-Finals

Ghana are USA's bogey team. I don't think the US are necessarily better than them they're prolly on par but Ghana seems to always better them.

Three predictions:

1) England will not advance from group stage

2) Brazil will lose early, dropped out of second round by the Netherlands

3) Germany wins
