Preview

England leads Group D with 3 points after yesterday's win against Scotland in Nice. Japan, winner of the 2011 edition, is not expected to take the trophy this year but surely has the ability to get out of its group. Argentina, making its third appearance at the World Cup, is slightly underprepared and could be there for the taking.
