Figured I might as well do a whole prediction thing after I filled out Geoff's competition...

Threw in a few surprises because the groups look pretty straightforward.
Morocco knocking out Portugal via the fair play rule, France's group turning out like Italy's in 94, Croatia bottom of the group, 3/4 semi finalists from South America.

This group is so strong that it has given everyone an excuse to forget about Iran entirely, but they were one of the first nation's to qualify, which is kind of deceptive considering they are in Asia but still... I don't know anything about that Morocco team, but I have been surprised to see that they are the favored underdog to come out of that group and not Iran.

Yeah it's gonna end up like 7-7-1-1 or 9-6-1-1.

Morocco came through a group with the Ivory Coast (Gervinho, Zaha, Kalou, Bony, Yaya) and Gabon (Aubameyang, Lemina) with 6 wins out of 6 without conceding a goal. And they only conceded one in the playoff stage before that, so as far as I can tell they had the defensive record of any qualifying nation. I guess fewer games than some other continents though.

Their manager won AFCON with Zambia when they kept 4/6 clean sheets on the way, then won it again with the Ivory Coast fwiw.


I figure some crazy upset has to happen so why not ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Doesn't seem likely that a big team will go out in the group stage though. A, C, E and H seem the most fluid after first place.

The way things seem to be unfolding over there, maybe swap Spain with Portugal in the group


Seems that USA-Mexico-Canada is going to have the 2026 World Cup. 48 teams.. :x

sidibe might have to forfeit after a knock on his knee and swelling, debuchy would be his replacement.

Morocco and Iran are better than people think, arguably the best two teams from their respective confederations, and Portugal are overrated (if a bit obdurate). I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them (probably Morocco) got a result against Portugal.

And now Spain have sacked their manager, blowing this group further open.

Seems crazy that the RFEF would be so personally appalled that they would fire him two days before their first match. I mean, pull him aside and say “I wish you would have informed us and we’re not happy but go win the the fucking World Cup and all is forgiven.”
