Wrapping up my World Cup breakdown with Group H:
Another group with a clear cut favorite (Spain) and a bunch of teams vying for the second slot. Spain has a history of underachieving in the World Cup, but they're excessively talented and won the most recent European Cup, so they might be ready to put that history behind them. The Chileans also have a spotty Cup History, but were the second qualifiers from CONMEBOL after Brazil, so they should be the favorites for the second knockout slot (and an inevitable loss to Brazil). Honduras and Switzerland are the underdogs in this group, but not exactly easy sailing for the other two teams.
I'll do my predictions tomorrow, then let the games begin!
