    Germany will still be the favourite to win the cup, followed by Argentina, Brazil, France.
    Spain doesn't look threatening. I want England to reach the semis.

    No Asian country is expected to progress past the Group Stage. Infact none of them is expected to win any match either.

    Spain can be formidable with Diego Costa and Isco.  Isco scored 3 against Argentina, 2 against Italy recently. Big match player.
