Competing Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon, I think that is an absolute favorite Brasil in the next round to enter a prize winner of Group A. The other three teams are more or less uniform quality while Brasil is certainly a class above, so that an eventual tie host should not prevent them from ending up as A1 team.
Cameroon’s team to look for his chance in matches with Mexico and Croatia, but on paper they are the ones who should take the last position in this group. Between Croatia and Mexico should ask another participant knockout stages from Group A.
By the names of players, Croatia is the favorite on paper but would prefer Mexico for several reasons. The first reason is the fact that teams from Europe difficulties managing the Mondial outside the continent. The second and probably more important factor is the fixtures. Croatia opens competition against the host which will be difficult to win more than honorable defeat while Mexico will start against the weakest teams in the real group – Cameroon. Credits advantage of Mexico over Croatia after the first round could be decisive.
I have the impression that Mexico on the eve of the last round and mutual Longer with Croatia suit and a tie to pass the 16 best teams.
