World Cup 2010: Group B Preview

Group by group we go previewing the 2010 World Cup. On to Group B:

Getting a real sense of deja vu here with Argentina, Greece and Nigeria in the same group, just as they were in 1994. In fact, this group was based in Foxboro, Mass., and I saw a few of these matches in person. In fact, the opener was Maradona's final World Cup match, a 4-0 win over Greece with Maradona scoring once and Batistuta potting three. Maradona was suspended shortly thereafter and never played again.

The Nigerians meanwhile, went out in the second round to Italy and South Korea and the Greeks out in the group stage.

So in the name of deja vu, let's go with Argentina and Nigeria here.

  1. Argentina 7 points
  2. Nigeria 7
  3. Greece 3
  4. South Korea 0
