Ok FIFA Fans – the Draw has happened. It was a big day for Rio as stars and coaches, media and fans descend there to find out who will play whom. Some games are easy to call other not so much. The USA doesn’t have to play in round 2 but they will have to play in round 3. At the moment the only other team in group A with the US is Jamaica. There are 2 more spots in group A and 8 other teams that could be in group A. I’ll predict Haiti and Guatemala.
There are 2 other group that off the bat that catch my eye Europe group 5 and Asia group C. Group 5 in Europe may only have 5 teams where the other groups have 6. But look at the teams in that group: Spain, France, Belarus, Finland and Georgia. Two teams played in 2010 one had a great tournament Spain and the other one wouldn’t even practice France.
Now Asia group C has Japan, Uzbekistan, Syria and Korea DPR. Again 2 teams played in 2010 and the other 2 played great games in round 2. I like Japan even though their females beat the USA in the World Cup 2011 but their guys play great and can produce beautiful set pieces.
Video of the day would be a look at what happened today:
