World Cup Group Guide: Group G & Group H


Group G

The 1986 Semifinalists qualified for the World Cup without any worries whatsoever. The whole team seems powerful and Hazard, together with Mertens, can take it to glory. The Spanish coach, Roberto Martinez, has to find the perfect solution, as the whole nation expects them to get out of the Group with ease. Odds for winning Group G: 1.80*

Eternal favorite, England has let down the fans many times since 1966 when they won the trophy. They weren’t convincing in the qualifiers either, but people expect them to go as further as possible. Harry Kane will be the main man who should score the goals against the other teams and carry the team on his shoulders. Odds for winning the group: 2.37*

A nation that was unbeaten in the qualifiers should have great expectations. The African nation has never qualified from the groups at a World Cup and this year it seems that it won’t be any difference. They have a poor selection, so all hopes lie in Marseille’s Abdennour. They are not at all seen as favorites in this Group, so the odds for winning it are 20.00*

The biggest surprise this year has changed its country’s history, qualifying for the first time in history at the World Cup. Only by doing this, there has been a National holiday back home, so whatever happens next, it’s just a bonus. Panama might be the underdog here, but who doesn’t want to see this nation get at least a great result in this Group? Odds for winning the group: 50.00*

Group H

Group-HThe Polish finished 3rd on two occasions: 1974 and 1982 and are looking for a good experience this time too. They won a group containing Romania and Denmark with ease and now are looking with optimism ahead. There is no doubt that Lewandowski is the star here and everybody is expecting some spectacular goals from him. Odds for winning the group: 3.00*

Surprisingly, Colombia got the last spot for direct qualification and now the teams wants revenge. Falcao and Rodriguez set their sights on the elimination rounds and goals may flow moving forward. Punters see Colombia reaching the quarterfinals, but it’s still too soon to tell. They are favorites for winning this group with odds that go down from 2.40*

Quarterfinalists in 2002, Senegal reached the World Cup after a dubious replay with South Africa which they won. Now they are seen as the best African team and are expected to exit the Group Stage with ease. If Mane is in top form, the opponents may be in danger. However, they are seen as 3rd favorites to win this group. Odds at 5.50*

The Asian team is at its 6th consecutive World Cup. They have great strength, but the Group is tough for them. They managed only to reach the Round of 16 in 2002 and 2010 and it seems that they will not be able to match that this year. Kagawa is the star player, but Japan is not a team which can only have hopes in one player only. Odds for wining this group: 10.00*
