It's been called the "Group of Tough", tough to get out and tough to predict. A difficult one to call, all of these teams is going to have hard fight to make it through this group. Germany still seems like the strongest contenders, but the other three all have their merits. Germany has main issue as many main players are injured which will have a big impact to the consistency in the tournament. Ghana, Serbia, and Australia all had great performances at their respective qualifying tournaments.
Australia and Ghana look to build their performances from the last World Cup and Serbia will be a tricky team for anyone. Germany has been solid as usual, but not so great. Australia was a great surprise four years ago, but they won't be at this time. Their first match will be a step defining the next, including a first step of Ghana versus Serbia. Maybe the goal difference will determine who's gonna advance or go home, and I believe in Serbia.
MY ORACLE :Germany (5), Serbia (5), Ghana (3), Australia (2).
