High Level Group Reviews.
Group B & F are decided - Spain + Netherlands and Argentina + Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Groups A, C, E & H all have one qualifier (Brazil, Columbia, Switzerland and Belgium) with the 2nd spot coming from one of two teams.
Group D & G can lay claim the the group(s) of death. Both have 3 or 4 strong teams fighting for 2 spots.
Draw of Death
If you read the US press, Group G is the Group of Death. If you read the English press, Group D is the Group of Death. I'm not going to argue with them. However, let me introduce another concept ... 'draw of death'. The 'draw of death' is allocated by assuming you have the power to move your team to any other slot in the draw. Which is the very bottom slot that you want your team to move to! That is the team that got the 'draw of death'. I am going to argue that that team is Australia. They (ranked #59) have to get past Spain (#1), Netherlands (#9) and Chile (#15) to get out of the group phase.
