    Every world cup there are teams that really had no business being there. Of the 16 teams that failed to advance...which of them do you think were "chump" teams?

    Oh, I didn't know what you meant by "chump teams". I took germany and poland because they were the 2 biggest disappointments of the tournament.

    If you want teams that had no business being there, just take all of CONCACAF minus mexico.

    Costa Rica at least got a tie. Panama on the other hand definitely wins the FIFA Chump 2018 award.

    No shit. It’s going to be pathetic.

    At least there’s no single elimination, so you won’t have shitty teams advance on fluke goals.
