Group E Preview

Here is a brief Group E 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: Ecuador, France, Honduras, Switzerland

Group Overview:  France is the favorite in this group despite struggling through qualifying. They were embarrassed in 2010 in South Africa and will be without injured winger Franck Ribery. Switzerland played very well in European qualifying in a relatively easy group. Ecuador was absent from the 2010 World Cup and you can count on a lot of their fans traveling to Brazil for the games. Honduras has become a much improved team and is making its third World Cup appearance ever.

 Players to watch: Antonio Valencia (Ecuador), Karim Benzema (France), Jerry Bengtson (Honduras), Xherdan Shaqiri (Switzerland)

Prediction (win-draw-loss): 

1. France 1-2-0

2. Switzerland 1-2-0

3. Ecuador 0-3-0

4. Honduras 0-1-2
