Just a quick tally tonight. The question before us is, who did better at predicting the groups, me or Abigail? You may recall that we shared our predictions of how the groups would finish before the first round of the World Cup started. Abigail made some unorthodox choices, while I felt I was sticking to more proven logic.
Naturally, we both selected exactly nine of the 16 teams that advanced. They weren’t the same nine however. And while, sure I predicted the exact rankings for Group H and Abigail got none of them right in Group D, I’m still going to give her the nod on tiebreakers. The fact of the matter is that Australia is a really cool sounding country. It’s hard NOT to pick them to succeed.
