Almost all the big teams managed to progress this time around. Apart from the Czechs, all major team went through to the 2nd phase.
In my view, France is the biggest surprise. Despite their tradition, most of us thought they were screwed after the first 2 games, and here they are now in the quarter finals, with a genuine chance against a non-convincing Brasil.
Ukraine would be an obvious choice but their opposition was quite weak.
What do you think?
