    I would like to see England win it. They are my second team after the US. Not likely though. I agree with Brazil winning it.

    I dont know to be honest. If the US even makes it out of the group stage I will be thrilled, but we are young and seem to be preparing more for 2018. But I like Germany or Spain to win it all, hopefully Germany.

    Group D could be interesting, I think Italy, Uruguay and England all have very similar chances of making it out.

    I've got a decent wager on Argentina to win it all, I know nothing about soccer but I have a reason to watch now.

    I only really picked USA to get out of the group because I'm a homer, I think we're capable of getting second, but I also thing we're capable of getting 4th.

    Belgium is my favorite team to play with on FIFA, so they're my sleeper to win the whole damn thing. I honestly think they can do it... Lukaku is my boy.
