FIFA 2014 World Cup Rundown: Group E

FIFA 2014 World Cup Rundown: Group E

A taste of goal line technology and last minute drama best describe the happenings in Group E. Currently, the French and the Swiss dominate the boards.

 

Recap

France easily thrashed Honduras in their encounter despite the absence of Franck Ribery. Karim Benzema led the squad’s scoring campaign after he netted two (2) important goals. The second one, however, was met with questions and criticisms from the Honduran team. But thanks to the goal line technology, which clarified that Benzema’s goal was indeed, a valid one.

 

Meanwhile, Switzerland was almost forced to settle for a stalemate against Ecuador until Haris Seferovic’s last minute gasp gave the upper hand to the Swiss team.

 

The scene-stealer

Already at the final stretch of the match, Seferovic’s late rally was a definite head turner. The squad had been on the trailing side until the winning goal was scored.

 

Likewise, the goal line technology is worthy of plaudits and praise. Such technology just made football even more exciting.

 

The weakest link

Honduras will need to man up on the pitch if they are still keen on advancing into the next stage. They need to take advantage of the injury issues confronted by their upcoming opponent, Ecuador.

 

Which teams will advance?

Two (2) of the competition’s world cup betting’s group favorites, Switzerland and France will have a face-off that could cause some chaos in the group ranking. At any rate, should they maintain consistency, it is not surprising to see them meet again in the Round of 16 stage.
