When looking through theFIFA World Rankingsback to USA 94, you start to get some context for just how poor, at least on paper, this opening match-up is. When combining the world rankings of the participating teams at the time of the opening match,2014provided the most mouth-watering clash withBrazil(3) andCroatia(18) making a total ranking of 21. Its also fair to say that this game lived up to expectations, with the hosts initially going behind early on before staging an impressive three goal comeback. In Russia though, the two teams combine to make a rank of 133 – the highest of the last seven tournaments. Of course, you dont necessarily need big names and world beaters to make for a good game of football. We may well end up being pleasantly surprised come June 14.
