USA
Managed by Klinsmann, are again at the World Cup finals, expect a spirited battle from them but with no stand out players (Clint Dempsey probably there star man & also a favourite to be the first player sent off in this World Cup ) USA will more than likely be bottom of this group

Southampton - USA links

America has given us an array of fast food outlets,,football wise Kasey Keller- had a brief loan spell with us in 2004

Ghana
Have a chance, but they need Germany to beat Portugal, we know there best two players Essien (Chelsea) and Kevin prince boateng (spurs and Pompey) other than that I'm struggling, when Ghana play Germany I believe it will be the first time 2 brothers (Kevin prince and Jerome Boateng) will have played against each other in a World Cup

Southampton - Ghana links

Nigel Quashie could of played for Ghana via his father, Michael Essien who is the former long term partner of Jose's wife Cassie

Portugal
Have shown they can match Germany, (normally only a goal in it) but are prone to the occasional slip up against weaker sides, the defender Pepe is also amongst the favourites to be the first sent off in this World Cup, Portugal/USA game could be good

Southampton - Portugal links

Jose who surely should of had some international recognition at some time over his career, other Portuguese saints dani Rodriguez and Luís Boa Morte

Germany
At the last four major tournaments - the 2006 and 2010 World Cups and the 2008 and 2012 Euro Championships have always made it at least as far as the semi-finals. I expect them to do at least the same this time round

Southampton - Germany links

Apart from flattening our high street in the 40's, Ewe Rösler was I think the only German who's ever played for us,

Sotonian's Prediction

Germany
Portugal
Ghana
USA

Is the bookies order for the end of this group, So where is an upset going to come from?

Opening games are Germany v Portugal and Ghana v USA. if there are wins in both those games it could be interesting, if there is a draw in the Ghana v USA game, it could all end very predictable
