So, the Dutch are the first to officially make it through to the knockout stage. No surprise there. What is surprising is that Japan has the inside track to finish second in the group. If they draw with Denmark, they have the goal difference advantage. I think they can take the Danes, too.
Group D has been full of surprises, too, what with both Serbia and Australia both making much better showings in their second games. I see Serbia and Ghana making it through and the Germans going home - quite a switch from starting out so strong.
