FIFA Ranking: 7
Player to watch: Antoine Griezmann
Tournament Preview: France lost in the finals of Euro 2016, and are poised for redemption. From front to back, France has the most depth of any team in this tournament. Anything short of another finals appearance could be seen as a failure for the French.
Score Predictions: 4 – 0 Win vs Australia / 2 – 0 Win vs Peru / 3 – 3 Draw vs Denmark
FIFA Ranking: 40
Player to watch: Tim Cahill
Tournament Preview: In a very tough group, Australia looks to be the odd man out. Expect Tim Cahill to put on a show at 38 years of age as the Socceroos look to make an upset.

FIFA Ranking: 11
Player to watch: Jefferson Farfan
Tournament Preview: Peru isn’t filled with superstar names, but that doesn’t take anything away from their team play. This is their first trip to the World Cup since 1982 and they will look to make the most of it.
Score Predictions: 0 -2 Loss vs France / 3 – 2 Win vs Australia / 1 – 2 Loss vs Denmark
FIFA Ranking: 12
Player to watch: Christian Eriksen
Tournament Preview: Denmark could be sneaky good in this World Cup. They have a lot of young and unproven talent, but if their energy and passion can translate on the field, it could be a very successful summer for the Danes.
