Draw in 3 days, at least les rosbifs will have the excuse of having a young team when they get knocked out in the last 16 round

Don't see any standout team as favourites
.Will be interesting to see a few upsets .
Will be keeping an eye on Iceland to see how they do .And obviously Denmark's group .

No real stand out team at the mo indeed....a European team will win it me thinks....I'd go with one of Germany, Spain and France if i had to come up with 3 teams

If les Bleus don't win it, I'd actually love to see a nation that's never won it before go all the way

Cue Crayola saying Sampaoli's Argentina will walk it anyway

I'd love the Argies to win it just to put the argument about Messi to bed . Haven't seen them so can't comment on what their chances are .
Wonder how people feel about England's chances .
