FIFA 2014 World Cup Rundown: Group B (Onward To The Round Of 16)

FIFA 2014 World Cup Rundown: Group B (Onward To The Round Of 16)

Netherlands had its taste of revenge against Spain when they easily qualified to the Round of 16. Joining the Oranjes is Chile, which also displayed an impressive performance during the Group Stage

 

Recap

Netherlands’ perfect record automatically qualified them to the latter stage of the competition. The squad won all its matches with flying colors and scored an average of two (2) goals all throughout the initial phase of the tournament.

 

Chile was also a certified stunner. It outranked the defending champion, Spain.

 

Speaking of Spain, the squad’s dismal performance resulted to its early exit, alongside with minnow, Australia.

 

The scene-stealer

There is no doubt that Netherlands’ Arjen Robben was the group’s main man. He was the man of the match in all of his squad’s encounters.

 

Spain’s shocking elimination has also caught the attention of many. Supporters were expecting a major comeback, but Chile destroyed all their hopes of extending their stay in Brazil.

 

The weakest link

This award goes to Spain, obviously.

 

Which team will advance?

Netherlands will face Mexico in the Round of 16, whilst Chile is pitted against the crowd favorite, Brazil.

 

Between the two, Netherlands stands as the top pick of world cup betting tips. Chile might also feature against Brazil. However, the host will most likely exploit its home court advantage.
