Group B

Group B has a very exciting look about it and looks to be a really tough group to progress from. Spain will obviously fancy their chances of going through and I for one would not disagree. I believe that the Spanish league is arguably the best in Europe and with the quality and strength in depth I think there progress is assured. Holland however are pinnacle underacheivers, with all the flair and good football they play they dont actually win the major tournaments. Impressive again in qualification but I question whether they can produce this time around after doing well to reach the 2010 World Cup Final. Now we come to Chile. I was impressed with them against England and I think they can progress from the group here. More suited to the conditions than the Dutch and the pivotal match between the two teams is going to be a key game in the group for qualification. Last but not least (!) Australia will have their work cut out. I hope they go out to Brazil and enjoy every moment they are there, but cannot see any hope for them Im afraid. If they can come out of this World Cup with their heads held high and having enjoyed the experience surely thats a success!

Danger Men

Spain - Jordi Alba - Maybe not the most obvious choice but is like grease lightning. Watch his bursts forward from left back

Holland - Arjen Robben - Ageing but still quality. A menace from wide areas

Chile - Alexis Sanchez - Could be ready for a big tournament. Skillful quick and very dangerous

Australia - Tim Cahill - Prolific from midfield and the talisman for the Aussies.

To Qualify

Spain and Chile


 Never worry about money again
