sppodsmIt’s time for our first World Cup Group previews! With only 9 days until the start of the tournament, GC and Lee Delvecchio sit down and discuss the first two groups of the tournament, Group A and Group B. Included in the discussion are:

  • Can anyone nick a point off Brazil in the group stage?
  • Can Croatia recover from injury and suspension issues?
  • What exactly should we be expecting from a relatively mysterious Cameroon team?
  • Did Mexico fix its issues with the most recent coaching change, and can they grab enough points to escape the group?
  • Did the 2013 Confederations Cup loss to Brazil mark the end of Spain’s dominance?
  • Which Dutch team shows up?
  • Can Chile build off of their intriguing 2010 Group Stage appearance?
  • Should Australia just stay home?

All of that, plus predictions from both of us for each game and for the teams advancing out of the group, on this edition of SportsPolitik’s World Cup preview.
