With the world cup in Brazil in sight and all 32 teams qualified, here I shall make a rundown on teams chances and predicted finish before the World Cup draw this week. Where I shall review chances again.
Group Stage – maybe Last 16 if given a kind draw but have an ageing team.
Group Stage – lack of quality in their team not expected to pick up points.
Last 16 – expected from Japan, with a large Japanese Brazilian following expected at the World Cup.
Group Stage – Reached the Last 16 on a number of occasions by their team has passes their peak.
Group Stage – Team was awful at South Africa and just scrapped past Burkina Faso.
Group Stage – An ageing team but with Eto’o, Song could spring a surprise with a bit of luck.
Last 16 – Fruitful young side, who will cause trouble to even the best European teams.
Last 16 – Best African team on paper with quality, kinder draw should see them show the talent.
Group Stage – Unknown side, that could cause a hiccup to one of the bigger sides.
Group Stage – Made the World Cup in 2010, but had little impact.
Last 16- Average team who should make the last 16 but no further.
Group Stage – A lot of flair players along with Hernandez, making the Last 16 will be difficult.

Last 16 – Past the golden generation and cant keep the ball well enough.
1/4 Final – Ribery and Pogba will have to carry a somewhat mediocre French Team.
Winners – Its there time at last, with quality and experience they should win as long as they avoid the Italians!
Klose – To score most goals ever in a world cup, i hope so.
Group Stage – No Euro 2004 magic 10 years on.
1/4 final – A world cup team with Balotelli and Di Natale should make the last 8.
1/4 Final – Van Persie can not hide the fact that they have a bad defense.
Last 16 – Ronaldo will not be able to carry his one man team forward.
Group Stage – Average team that will do well to reach the last 16
