World Cup Predictions – Ospina’s Colombia to top Group H?

World Cup Finals Group H Predictions by Dan Smith

Arsenal only have David Ospina in this group…

Colombia 1st
Won many over with their brand of football four years ago. In my opinion James Rodriguez deserved to be player of the tournament in Brazil. He, along with Falcao and Cuadrado, have rediscovered their old form. No coincidence that they shined at a competition hosted in South America. Can they reproduce in a different climate. The Group could have been a lot harder.

Group H is fascinating as all 4 teams will feel like they can take points off each other.
What gives the Poles the edge is Lewanowski, one of the proven word’s best poachers, something the other 3 don’t have. In all 3 games he will feel he can get the better of the defence. His reputation mentally seems to improve his teammate. With such a match winner can beat ordinary opposition but not enough to go deeper.

In Sadio Mane, Kalidou Koulibaly, Sakho and Gueye Senegal have key players playing for some of Europe’s main clubs. That already raised hopes they could fly the flag for Africa even before this draw was very kind to them. They will feel all 3 games are winnable and have a chance if they can come together as a team. It wouldn’t be a shock if they finished top or bottom of the group.

Apart from the World Cup they co hosted Japan have struggled to meet their governments exspectetions to put football on the map. The draw though couldn’t of been kinder. They are in a group where anyone can beat anyone which is all they could have wished.

    Columbia first Japan second.
    Lemar gone to A Madrid.

    1. Arsene is Out says:

      Torreira, Lichtensteiner and Sokratis (July announcement due to BVB financial year) are done deals. We are still looking for a GK and maybe another defender. There is also a possibility that we get Gelson Martins for free as he is one of the Sporting players who exited his contract due to “untenable work conditions”
      This might turn out to be a pretty good window after all.

  2. JW says:

    Poland first, Colombia second, Japan, then Senegal

  3. kev says:

      2. Someone says:

        Yacine was convinced by PSG director at the last minute , otherwise he was really coming.

    2. GUNNER OZ says:

      Kev, you are a genius. Was wondering how your information is gathered. I am BBC and guardian man myself,are you the same? Or do you rely on the mirror, sun, espn etc. Your insight into transfer dealings with regards to our beloved club is unparalleled. Your talents are wasted on this forum, start your own website “KAA”, Kevs Arsenal Analysis. Media outlets will be falling over themselves for your insight.

        He uses “newsnow Arsenal”

    3. Arsene Wenger. says:

      That’s cool bro.I’ve also seen that we have agreed fee for Leno which seems quite good

  4. RSH says:

    Ornstein links us with Toreirra. Now i can get hyped 😀

  5. Victoria Concordia Crescit says:

    just saw the match between France ’98 ( managed by Aime Jacquet ) Vs FIFA ’98 team managed by Arsene Wenger..

    and as expected , Wenger lost 3-2

    1. Break-on-through says:

      Bergkamp rolled back the years with deceiving turn and perfectly placed shot from outside area, he’s still got it. But that game you’re talking about there, sure the ref made bad calls and the linesman must be near sighted, Wenger deserved better.

      1. Arsene is Out says:

        If it wasnt for the referees Wenger would have won it all every year. 🙂
