World Cup Predictions: Group D

More soccer, fans. Group D features Germany, Australia, Serbia, and Ghana. Almost all the names of Serbia's players end in "-ic", which suggests to me a rather shallow gene pool. Australia has a handful players who play in England, but their informal team nickname is the "Socceroos." And, thus, they have no chance. Socceroos? Really?

I would love to see Ghana do well because I like their country and western theme song, "What kind of Ghana?" But I am bound by heritage to pick Germany from this group. And they have a goalkeeper named Butt.
