Group E

Qualify:

Out:

Iran

Surprisingly disappointing for a team from a Muslim nation. Possibly a bit of a stereotypical view, but I expected more. Led well by Dejagah with Haghighi, Haji Safi and Ghoochannejad.

Bosnia

Second place in this gorup was a close call, mostly because the other teams were pretty poor. I was not at all impressed by Bosnia’s first outing, but as the games have rolled by, they’ve started to pick themselves up, especially Pjanic, Medunjanin, Kolasinac and Bicakcic.

Argentina

Very poor from Argentina, fortunately for them, they had Lavezzi and Higuain to drag them off the bottom spot.

Nigeria

No standout beard performance from the African champions. Oh, there was stubble, and neckbeards and some general fuzz but I just couldn’t get excited by any of it.

Switzerland

Out:
Honduras

Switzerland

Surprise package of the tournament for me. Not sure why I didn’t expect much, but some sterling efforts including Mehmedi, Djourou, Rodriguez and Behrami.

France

The French seemed to have stopped arguing amongst themselves and got down to the serious business of growing beards. A decent effort from Lloris, Benzema, Cabaye and Evra, but more length needed to challenge for silverware.

Honduras & Ecuador

Thoroughly beaten by France and Switzerland and would played out a -1 all draw between themselves. When these two teams lined up against each other, there wasn’t a single beard in either starting XI. Separating them would be a pointless exercise.
