Which Teams Will Surprise and Which Teams Will Disappoint in Russia?
#1
Hi,

In the last World Cup in Brazil, the award for the most surprising sides would IMO go to Costa Rica and Algeria, both of which entered the tournament as rank outsiders, many expecting they would likely finish last in their respective groups. 

Instead, both advanced from their groups with memorable performances and, in the case of Costa Rica, advancing as far as the quarterfinals and exiting even then only on penalties. 

Conversely, the most disappointing must have been Italy, Spain, and England, each failing to advance from their group despite each being either a favorite (Spain and even Italy) or at least among sides expected to advance from their group and beyond (England). 

Even hosts Brazil, despite finishing a respectable 3rd, had a disappointing tournament overall, as Brazil were among the top pre-tournament favorites to win the trophy. 

Instead, they made the semifinals through a series of largely forgettable and unconvincing performances and ended up, not merely losing the semifinal, but getting thoroughly embarrassed by Germany in a way that frankly resembled the thrashing the Saudis received from the Germans in 2002.
