The 2014 World Cup kicks off on Thursday and we’re taking a look at each group with Football Daily. Now they’re putting a spot light on Group E, which hosts France, Switzerland, Ecuador and Honduras.
It isn’t the toughest of groups and France would be considered the heavy favorites to advance out as the No. 1 team in the table after group play. They could slip and struggle with injuries to players like Franck Ribery, a 2013 FIFA Ballon d’Or finalist, who will miss the entire tournament due to an injury.
Switzerland is a strong consensus pick to advance to the knockout rounds as well, but you can’t count out Ecuador. Honduras is widely regarded as a long shot to advance out of the group but anything can happen on the soccer field.
Watch Football Daily’s Laurence McKenna and Adam Boultwood, along with Dave O’Brien from Squawka, break down the group and give their predictions about who gets out of the tournament and into the round of 16.
Which two teams do you think will advance out of the group and into the knockout rounds? Sound off in the comments section below with thoughts and predictions of your own.
