World Cup Predictions: Group H

ISH soccer writer, Adam Leightman, predicts every match in the 2014 World Cup. Who will win each group? Will Brazil win the tournament they are hosting? Is there a dark horse ready to make a deep run in the tournament? Join International Sports Hub every day as each group is predicted and eventually a country will be crowned champion.

Group H:

Group H has a lot of young talent in it. The Belgian National Team is a young, energetic team looking to make a lot of noise this summer. The Russian team has a nice mix of youth and experience on the roster. The South Koreans will bring a team with only one player over the age of 30. And then there is Algeria, who will attempt to spoil the party with a good group of young players ready to run at the World Cup.


1. Belgium

The Belgians are going to be a force this summer in Brazil. Led by Vincent Kompany, the captain, the Belgian defense will be solid and only concede one goal in the first three games. Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku will lead the attack as the team will score eight goals in the group stage.

2. Russia

The Russians are bringing a very talented team to Brazil this summer. IF the Russians show up ready to play, they can make some serious noise in the tournament. Led by Aleksandr Kerzhakov and Yuri Zhirkov, the Russians will make their way out of the group finishing second.

3. South Korea

The South Koreans will be a lot of trouble for teams in this group. Led by Park Chu-Young, The South Koreans will score at least one goal in every game of the tournament. However, it will be their defense that lets them down at the end of the tournament. They will concede three goals each to Belgium and Russia and fail to qualify for the knock out rounds.

4. Algeria

Algeria, like most teams from Africa, have a very little chance of advancing. They have young players, that do not play in the top leagues around the world. They are in a tough group, and will fail to pick up a single point during their time in Brazil.
