Fortune Teller
Let me look into the Crystal Ball

 

It seems every where I turn there is someone predicting the teams that will qualify for the second round and how they will progress throughout the tournament. Everybody seems to be talking but nobody is putting their money where their mouths are. Then there is Sportsbet who are putting their money on the line, so lets analyse what they predict.

Group A

A1: France $2.00

A2: Mexico $4.33

A3: Uruguay $4.50

A4: South Africa $6.50

Group B

B1: Argentina $1.50

B2: Nigeria $5.00

B3: Greece $6.50

B4: South Korea $11.00

H4: Honduras $17.00

Well now that we have all the Group Winners we can begin with the second round. There are some instances where the odds are the same for the Group Winners so you will see two countries vs one. This will not cause an issue as the rest of the tournament will be based on the odds of winning the World Cup.

156 Days “Côte d’Ivoire 16 del Mundo”

Côte d'Ivoire

 

The Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire) are Team 14 with a FIFA ranking of 16 in the World. One previous appearance in Germany 2006, which ended at the group stage.  

If there ever was a team that depended solely on one player then The Ivory Coast would be at the top of the list. Didier Drogba is their star player and will need to be at his scoring best for The Ivory Coast to progress at South Africa 2010.  

 
 

  

Didier Drogba

 

The Ivory Coast are in Group G with Brazil, Portugal and Korea DPR. All the best Côte d’Ivoire, tough, tough Group.  

   

My Prediction: Out at Group Stage
