I'm a little behind on the previews, so I'll give it to you quick and dirty. I don't want to be dishonest and base my predictions on the matches already played, so I'll go with the picks I made in a pool with some friends.

Group D

1. Mexico
2. Portugal
3. Angola
4. Iran

Group E

1. Italy
2. Czech Republic
3. USA
4. Ghana

Group F

1. Brazil
2. Croatia
3. Japan
4. Australia

Japan beating Australia hurts, and I'm now inclined to believe that Iran will beat out Angola for 3rd, but that's how it is with prognostication.

An interesting, quasi-statistical note: Of 10 matches played so far, 23 goals have been scored, meaning the tournament is on pace for 147 goals, down about 15 from last time around.
