Group C is one of the most open groups in all of the tournament. The favorites are Colombia, but who comes second is anyone’s guess.
Will it be the supremely talented Ivory Coast led by Drogba, Yaya Toure, and Gervinho or will they disappoint in a major tournament once again?
Can Japan’s technical prowess and skillful players like Kagawa, Endo, and Honda get them out of the group against these physically imposing sides?
Will Greece’s stingy defense regain the form of EURO 2004 and lead them to glory?
We pose all those questions and more to BEin Sports’ Phil Schoen as he breaks down the danger men for each team.
