It'd be great to see England rise up and have an excellent World Cup.

If that means getting through to the Semis and the Finals, so be it -- but they'll need to seriously step up to get there!

Belgium keeps looking like the ones who'll get there otherwise.

Since England and Belgium are in the same group, both could theoretically make it to the final to play one another. Teams from the same group are placed on opposite sides of knockout bracket.

Hey, Do you think Portugal has potential to win the world cup? I don't agree with this chart teams. Hope Portugal win this world cup because I am a huge fan of Christiano Ronaldo.

I have great respect for Ronaldo and he can do many things. I certainly hope Portugal does well. However, Ronaldo needs more help from his team in order to continue advancing, in my opinion.

Portugal gets plenty on contributions from players other than Ronaldo. At Euro 2016, Nani and Ronaldo split the 4 goals score by Portugal in the group stage. In the knockout rounds, Ronaldo score 1 of Portugal's 5 goals plus he had to leave the match in the 22nd or 23rd minute of the final against France and Portugal still won. I understand Ronaldo is an amazing player and does a lot, but Portugal as a team is more than one player.

Germany crash out of the World Cup after losing 2:0 to South Korea... Germany should be embarrassed with that debacle...

So glad La Albiceleste made it thru. Now we get to see multiple shots of Maradona. Hopefully, flipping some more birds.

I'm picking 1 of Belgium, England, Spain, or France at this point.

Portugal: Ronaldo has won enough major trophies in the last 3 years (3 Champs League, a Euro championship in 2016), time for someone else to win something.
Argentina: Got a complete miracle handed to them twice...….first in actually making the World Cup, and than making it out of that group with that 7th minute stoppage time goal. And really, how were there 7 minutes of stoppage time?? I was listening to it on Sirius XM at work and they said the referee called for only 4 minutes of added time, something seems fishy there. I don't see their luck holding out.
Germany: Yikes!
Brazil: Neymar is overrated, and it's on European soil.
