With the final round of World Cup group games starting today, we asked members of the football fraternity which of the favoured teams is in danger of missing out on the round of 16.

Jerome Waite, head coach, Wolmer’s Boys

Germany have to make sure that they take care of business against Costa Rica if they want to go through because if they don’t, they are out.

Calvert Fitzgerald, former Molynes United coach

Belgium are the number two-ranked team in the world, but they do not look like a team that is going to the last 16 unless they can come up with a big performance in their last game against Croatia.

Marcel Gayle, assistant coach, St George’s College

I don’t really see any big team going out. This World Cup has seen a number of teams on the same level, but I think all the big teams should be in the knockout round.

Alex Thomas, head coach, Molynes United

Belgium. They have some injuries in their team, and their lead forward Romelu Lukaku just got back into the team and didn’t look in top shape or form.
