    Germany will get through, 2nd spot is up for grabs imo, if Costa Rica can get a draw against Germany i think they'll qualify, they are my roughies to do well in this tournament.

    Germany and Ecuador for me. Poland are no better than in 2002, when Korea and US got the better of them - and Costa Rica have messed up selection policies.

    Costa Rica are rubbish and Ecuador are no good away from their high altitude fortress. Poland at least have a few decent attacking players, unfortunately for them their two best lead the line for the krauts. Poor group.

    Yer Erics will top the group fairly comfortably, with Poland second. Poles have few stars, but that lad who plays for Celtic should be good for a goal or two. Slightly iffy defence maybe, but as Ecuador's top striker is Agustin Delgado, who scored about half a goal in two years with the Saints, I don't see it being a hug e prob.

    1) Germany
    2) Poland
    3) Ecuador
    4) Costa Rica

    hmnm not the greatest group. Germany are heading out early for me, but they should get through the group, i can see them slipping up in a game though, so they might not top the group. Poland to join them, think they'll deal with the other two pretty well

    Can't see myself avidly watching the games in this group. Poland and Germany - how can a team as poor as Ecuador get to the finals again?

    Ecuador finished third behind Brazil and Argentina IIRC.

    SAM nations generally all win at home in qualifiers and struggle away. Brazil and Argentina for instance have never won against Uruguay in Montevideo! Quito is 3000m above sea level so that just adds to the degree of difficulty.

    I don't think the Germans have much of a side but it is at least on par with their 2002 side, what they lose down back they make up for in a much improved attack. The English have a massive chip when it comes to the krauts, I can't see them losing until at least the quarters.
