    Apologies if done before but who's your dark horses for WC? I'm talking none of the obvious big sides & dont have to win it, but do very well (semis or final maybe).

    For me...

    1. Uruguay. CB partnership play together at club level & got 150 caps between em. Plus Suarez & Cavani up front.

    2. Sweden. Utter bastards to beat. Dull as dishwater but could grind results out like they did against Italy

    Croatia. Very good midfield.

    I know they weren't too impressive on Saturday, but I think Nigeria could do well.

    They'll be the hipsters choice after the group stages. Can see the possession stat RT's already.

    :oops: Knew I should have finished the thread before replying

    Some expert writers seem to think Nigeria are pretty strong all over. They need either Argentina or Croatia to fuck up to get out of group mind.

    Peru decent shout i reckon. Sort of team that you've heard of none of players then find out they all play in good Europa league sides eg Sevilla.
