Group G PREDICTIONS

Belgium won 9 of total 10 games in qualifying stage while England won 8. Both teams easily qualified for the world cup and are favourite to advance to the round of 16. It is difficult to say which team would bag which position but this group is set for an exciting thriller.

With star players like Hazard, Lukaku, De Bruyne in Belgium and Kane, Cahill, Sterling in England- It would be a delight to watch these European Giants playing against each other. This match would be on June 28.

While 2004 African champions Tunisia won their every match in qualifying campaign they still don’t seem to match the skills of European giants Belgium and England.

Panama was able to qualify by beating the odds and securing a position above 2017 CONCACAF champions USA. But having the similar case like Tunisia it seems difficult for them to qualify for round of 16 when others are almost assured of it.
