Very excited about Group B for USA. England vs USA on Black Friday will be great!

Also excited about their chances to get past the group stage. Really pulling for Ukraine to win the playoff but definitely don’t want to face them for obvious reasons. #istandwithukraine

If you had to choose one, for my money the group of death is ‘Group C’ as Argentina & Messi on his last ride, Poland with one of the best players in the world Lewandowski and a Mexico team with something to prove all could advance on a normal year.

I do feel bad for our Northern Neighbors Canada; I don’t see them advancing out of Group F with Belgium and World Cup Runner-Up Croatia in their quad.

Looking ahead (As Americans’ do) being paired with group A is ideal; if the USA can win Group B and potentially play Senegal or Qatar in a R16 matchup I would take that any day.

This WC will be a great opportunity for the young USMNT to get the experience needed for the 2026 WC when we’re hosting it.

@Matty_Bovada any special competition for the World Cup?

We’ll definitely get a few going during the world cup.

Not the group of death but tough nonetheless…

Iran is no slouch and Wales is pretty tough as well(if they win the playoff to get in).

I think Canada will surprise a few by getting out of the group. I can see their speed become a problem in a match with Croatia.

Usmnt for the win

I wish. I just hope we get out of the group and win a first rounder

England
Brazil
France
Portugal
Spain
Argentina
Belgium
USA

Very possible

Wouldn’t count out Swiss or Germany or even Netherlands and Denmark if this was the exact elimination rounds.

Mexico would be very unlucky to draw France.

Portugal vs Belgium I wouldn’t want to predict who wins that just yet that would be a fantastic final 8 matchup

Spain seems like a good value honestly. They got a good squad and could easily win it all

Not sure about Scotland beating Ukraine though. It depends in what state of mind will the Ukrainian team shows up. Due to the war, they may not be mentally ready or it will give them an edge.

Ukraine is definitely going to the world cup at this point. Very good performance from them.

They just gotta go through Wales

Mbappe kinda hurt and France lost

What a crazy set up to the World Cup

I wouldn’t read too much into current results. I think Mbappe will be okay for the World Cup. France is really hit or miss like Brazil in many ways. It’s all about chemistry with them.
