Worst case scenario = no Australia

Sad part is, for me, even your best case scenario we'd be lucky to get a point.

There is no way those four could end up in the one group.

Defend for your life in every game and hope to nick a goal somewhere. One point against Peru is my prediction.

There doesn't seem to be a group of death. There could be a few lower teams going through.

admin, don’t worry about that proven ageist Not Nice Cyril. Let’s hope for an Evra-style meltdown in the French training camp before Australia’s game with them on Saturday 16 June 7.30pm Adelaide time.

Then shackle Eriksen in the Denmark game 6 days later and next - rough up Peru’s skilful play-makers 5 days after that & OZ will sail through to the Round-of-Sixteen.

Agreed. Its not a dig at the team, just a realistic view of a squad that looks a bit light on compared to recent campaigns.

At least Polska's chances look brighter.
