World Cup predictions for today’s Group C and Group D games featuring England, the USA and Germany

Argentina are definitely looking the best of the South Americans to me; Greece probably still need to beat them next week to have any chance of going through; and France? The sooner we see the back of them, the better it will be for this World Cup.

Germany v Serbia (Nelson Mandela Bay/Port Elizabeth) 12.30pm

Having purred their way through an easy first game, the Germans may be about to face a more formidable obstacle in the shape of a chastened Serbia. We’ll all have to sit up and pay attention if Low’s men continue the excellent form they showed during the recent Australia rout.

Prediction: DRAW

Slovenia v USA (Johannesburg) 3pm

Win and Slovenia will qualify for the knock out stage. Anything else and this group will be heading for a nail biting last day.

Prediction: DRAW

England v Algeria (Cape Town) 7.30pm

The old cliché about “must win” games has never seemed more appropriate. Early indications are that England captain Steven Gerrard will have a more advanced role supporting Wayne Rooney. It’s time for England to show what they can do. The link is for anyone feeling the need to carry a spare pair of pants for tonight. The Football Supporters’ Federation says there isn’t much demand for pants bearing the name of Danny Shittu. Not yet, anyway.

Prediction: England WIN

And the World Cup Bafana Bafana 2010 prediction success rate is now: 9/20
