Four teams I will be following in the World Cup…

As there is no Scotland in the World Cup finals (my dad’s to blame as he got me into the World Cup back in 1978 supporting Scotland) I will be following the fortunes of the four nations with Stoke City players in their ranks. First up Honduras who feature Wilson Palacios as their midfield general and you can’t really see them progressing past the group stage. Geoff Cameron will be in his midfield guise for the USA who again I can’t see getting much more than a draw out of their three group matches.

Better prospects with Nigeria though and the reinstated Peter Odemwingie, who was on fine form for us after signing in January. Nigeria have a tough group yet if they stay focussed could progress hopefully. Bosnia I fancy could sneak into the knock out stages and with Asmir Begovic between the sticks its vital for their fortunes he has a good World Cup!
