2014 World Cup Preview – Group C

Even without Radamel Falcao, Group C seriously looks like Colombia’s for the taking; especially if they start off with a convincing win against Greece in Belo Horizonte on Saturday.

Ivory Coast’s encounter with Japan, played at three o’clock in the morning (Central European Time), could be the match that decides who will take the second group place.

This was the viewing time originally planned for the Italy vs England encounter in Group D; subsequently brought forward three hours. The viewing public in Manaus were not consulted about the time change, which was made after pressure from the European television networks.

I’m not sure if I’d rather watch a game that starts at midnight or three in the morning; probably the morning. For some, it’s easier to set the alarm for three than stay up two hours after midnight.

Once the group games are played, Greece could join Australia in going home pointless.
