I still go with Brazil Spain in final but I really hope to see a new champion (Croatia or Uruguay disregarding the two times they won 80 years ago). Unfortunately Messi with this Argentina is not going to win it.
Don't underestimate Belgium, they play good football and are packed with stars from goalie to forward.
I expected them to beat England, even if both played with full line up.
England has got the easiest route, they are very happy Germany are out.
The only team worth betting to beat the Belgians is perhaps Brazil, others have to be at their best to have a chance.
Each World Cup has a dark horse that ends up third or fourth. This year there are a few that can do it. England has the easy bracket, I think they have a very good chance reaching the final. Argentina and Sweden come off of an emotional high and I see them win at least the next match. Uruguay can go far and may be the dark horse. Spain has looked horrible. They won’t go far passed Russia. Croatia will go far, but not to the final.
No team has a dominant midfielder. A few teams have great finishers who have been lackluster. I have a feeling it would be England vs Not sure final.
