Group B Preview

Here is a brief Group B preview for the World Cup. I will give my full tournament predictions on Wednesday and give a more in-depth preview of every World Cup match throughout the tournament.

Teams: Australia, Chile, Netherlands, Spain

Group Overview:  The second day of the World Cup will feature a rematch of the 2010 World Cup final between Spain and Netherlands. Spain has won three straight major tournaments (Euro 2008, 2010 World Cup, Euro 2012). The Netherlands are talented but have lacked chemistry in the past including an embarrassing showing at Euro 2012. Chile could be a tournament dark horse playing in their continent. Australia was given a cruel draw and might not get a point.

Players to watch: Tim Cahill (Australia), Arturo Vidal (Chile), Arjen Robben (Netherlands), Diego Costa (Spain)

Prediction (win-draw-loss): 

1. Spain 2-1-0

2. Chile 1-2-0

3. Netherlands 1-1-1

4. Australia 0-0-3
