World Cup Group F Predictions

You are here

Teams: Germany, Mexico, Sweden, South Korea

Germany stays at the top of the list among the rest of the favorites to win the 2018 World Cup. After going undefeated in all games in 2017, the Germans could very well repeat as champions.

All through the qualifiers, the World Cup holders were typically cold-blooded, cruising into the finals with a 10-of-10 win record. This squad is lethal with a mix of grizzled veterans like Thomas Muller, Jerome Boateng, Toni Kroos, and Mesut Ozil and young talents such as Julian Draxler and Lars Stindl.

Mexico is back to the World Cup for the seventh time in a row and will attempt to break their ceiling of getting past the round of 16. The Mexicans have only reached the quarterfinals twice in their World Cup history, all were on and prior to 1986 when they hosted the competition.

The Mexican squad is always competitive they head into the 2018 World Cup trailing a solid appearance in Brazil 2014 that continued through the qualifying stages of Russia 2018 having done so with three games to spare ahead of Costa Rica and Panama.

If the Mexicans have an Achilles heel it would be Coach Juan Carlos Osorio. Though he’s known for being a good tactician, his outburst seems to get the best of him and has led to embarrassing suspensions. The Mexican squad however is full of talent that includes West Ham’s Javier Hernandez, Real Betis’ Andres Guardado, and PSV’s Hirving Lozano. Guardado has scored 142 caps for his country.

Sweden shocked Italy and the rest of the soccer world by knocking them out in a playoff to qualify for their first World Cup since 2006, then led by Swedish phenomenon Zlatan Ibrahimovic. This time around, Ibrahimovic has refused to join the team and claims his days of international soccer days ended after last year’s European Championship.

Even if the Swedish team got by without Ibrahimovic, his absence will be understandably felt. Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg replaces Ibra in the attack joined by striker Marcus Berg who has netted 208 club career goals to date and scored 18 times for his country in 53 outings.

South Korea is another long-time World Cup attendee, having qualified for everyone since 1986. Amazingly, the South Koreans have reached the semifinals once in their history in 2002, but this time around it’s likelier that it snows in the Sahara than they make it past the group stage.

The squad is not without weapons however and a handful of English Premier Players that includes the top-scoring Asian player in that league’s history, Tottenham’s Son Heung-min could surprise more than one team.

Predictions: Look to Germany to win the group, don’t give it a second thought. Mexico is the likely second but will be hounded by Sweden who will give a great battle.
