Was planning to be supporting France in the tournament given they have Rabiot, then they go and not even select him! Happy if they lose now.

I've always liked him; but he threw his toys out of the cot after not being selected. Opinion of him has lowered somewhat.

I think Australia are going to pull off a surprise against either the Danes or Peru. Don't think they progress though.

If Aussie get one point from the three group matches they should count themselves lucky.

On Paper perhaps, but Peru were very nervous against us in that first leg away from South America and I'd give them a chance at fudging it up.

I wanna watch this group just to watch Australia be a complete train smash. I'm not entirely sold that the two that come out of this group are obvious either. France can do unusual things. I don't expect much from Peru but if they show up focused, they could sneak in as a 2nd place?

France is meant to have a really good team and Peru is currently on a 15 game unbeaten streak with 10 wins and 5 draws. 25 goals for and 8 goals against.

France are quality, one of the favourites to win it all IMO. Denmark are a very decent side, they stormed back into contention in the second half of European qualifying (including 4-0 win over Poland, and 5-1 away win against Ireland in the play-off). Peru have obviously had a very good run of late too. You wuld expect that a lot hinges on the Denmark v Peru game over the weekend.

As has been mentioned, Peru were quite nervous against us as it was such a potential 'banana skin' for them, now that they've qualified I hope they can be a bit more fearless.

I didn't notice that Australia now have the record for most games played to qualify for a World Cup, with 22, and also largest distance traveled in qualifying campaign, 155,000 miles.

When you haven’t been to a WC in 36 yrs, and have the weight of a nation on your shoulders - yes you’d be nervous. 

They have a pretty experienced squad, who survived some tight spots during South American qualifying. If they beat Denmark first up, great chance of progressing.
