Chp 512. World Cup: So how did I fare?


Now that the group stages are finally over, lemme take a look at how I fared on who won which match…

Like I said in my earlier post “World Cup 2014”, here’s a list of the teams I wanted to see winning. And as I mentioned in that same post - “This is in no way a prediction of course, because we know Argentina and Brazil are going to win most of their matches.” Yes, this is not about me predicting. It’s just me wanting to see such teams win.

Well, here’s my result…
