ahaha England and Croatia again. I see Croatia sweeping England. Theyre just not themselves and will take a little time and tinkering to return to glory.
This is a fairly tough group. You have Sweden, Portugal, and Denmark as front runners. I see Portugal taking this group with Sweden in close second. Denmark aren't the same team they used to be, neither are Hungary(horrible goalkeeper).
Definitely one of the easiest groups. Euro champs will more than likely ease through with little competition. Switzerland has a good chance of pulling second, but Israel are showing up recently. Luxembourg, Maldova, and Latvia are literally the worst teams in the world, so no biggie there.
This one is kind of tough. You have heavy favourites Czech Rep, followed by stubborn Poland, and always exciting Northern Ireland. San Marino will be dead last, but dont count out Slovakia.
Germany is in a league all by itself here, and its not surprising that they are practically given an automatic berth into WC again. Other than Russia, which is coached by Hiddink, and has potential, there really isnt any competition. I wish I could pick Wales to take this, but theyre not going anywhere without Giggs.
Another two horse race here with Turkey and Spain. This is pretty tough to call. But Ill go with Spain because theyre usually impressive in qualifying. But that really doesnt matter because they are professional losers and Turkey are incredible in the WC.
Probably the most talked about group. You have England and Croatia. I truly see Croatia taking the series and most likely finishing top. BUT, I still wont count out England out of the WC, since I believe theyll get one of those top #2 spots and get a berth. But then you have the Ukraine, and its a real shame that theyre in this group because theyre very very good with Shevchenko and Voronin. Hey you never know, they could be the guys who rob England of their spot.
This is also a two horse race with France ultimately taking top spot by a small margin followed very closely by Romania. Hell Romania might even qualify under the top #2 teams.
Unfortunately Italy takes this one by a land slide, hopefully not. Rep. Ireland comes in second (I wish they came 1st). Only other real team there is Bulgaria, but I doubt Berbatov can carry a whole team.
Scotland, Norway, Iceland and Holland. Holland takes this very easily early on. It will be a BIG battle for second between the other three. With possibly Scotland/Norway squeaking in. Im really torn because I really really like Scotland and Norway.
So here you go folks, plazz's breakdown. Sorry if your Proline doesnt turn out the same.
