    Group C: Argentina, Cote d'Ivoire, Serbia & Montenegro, Holland

    Sort of like the Group A thread, but with Group C instead.

    Teams are Argentina, Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast, for the un-French of us), Serbia and Montenegro and the Netherlands.

    Ah, The Group of Death . Or is that Group E?

    Head says Argentina & Holland, heart says anyone but yer Argies. S&M are no mugs, qualifying ahead of Spain & Holland waltzed thru the qualifiers. I think The Ivory Coast may struggle, although the presence of two Gooners in their probable XI secures my "pat on the head" interest, despite Chelski's king of the hand-ball up front.

    Holland to top the group for mine, but I think yer Argies may already have done enough by the time they play.

    1) Holland
    2) Argentina
    3) S&M
    4) Ivory Coast

    Group F is a tough one too, on the GoD front.

    Anyway, I wouldn't be surprised to see one of the big two miss out in this group. It's not all that uncommon at a world cup to have one of the fancies sides bow out early, and while Italy and France are both a shot to do so for various reasons, I think this group is the other obvious chance.

    I'll tip Argentina and Ivory Coast to go through, with Holland frustrated by draws against the weaker sides.

    ivory Coast and S&M hopefully.

    For some reason i don't like the Dutch side at the moment. That reason may or may not be the horse.

    Not really, since it only has 1 really good side, unlike others that have 2 or 3.

    Depends on your view really. Comparing E and F, Czech Republic are obviously a good side, but they've not done anything at a major tournament for a decade, while Japan performed at the last WC and Croatia came 3rd in 98. USA and Ghana are certainly not significantly better than any of the teams in F.

    This group obviously has two world class sides, but the rest are just competitive. This group is probably the toughest of the lot to draw as a weaker team, since you have to face two top quality nations to quality for the 16, but in terms of consistent quality across the 4 teams, E and F are both just as strong.

    i'd say Argentina will go through but who will be the second team is debatable.

    Semis in Euro 2004. Bigger achievement than 2nd round at home in the WC IMHO.

    Not that I rate them overly, mind.

    I can't honestly believe the amount of people who didn't pick Arg & Hol
    But then i think about it, both of the WCs i've seen a big teams have been knocked out in the first or second round

    1998:Spain(group), England (Ro16)
    2002:France, Portugal, Argentina(group) Italy(second)
    2006:???????????????????????????
