Here they are all groups with all teams having played two matches each, with 2 groups already fully defined (A and G) and 2 groups partially (C and D) and 4 still open (B, E, F and H), only in group F any of the 4 teams can still go through.
6 teams already qualified: Russia, Uruguay, France, Croatia, Belgium, England
8 teams out: Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Marocco, Peru, Costarica, Tunisia, Panama, Poland
The remaining 18 teams will need the last match to know their fate.
- Group B: 2 out of POR, ESP, IRN could qualify
- Group C: DEN or AUS could qualify
- Group D: only 1 of NGA, ISL, ARG could qualify
- Group E: 2 of BRA, SUI, SRB could qualify
- Group F: Any of MEX, GER, SWE, KOR could still qualify
- Group H: 2 of JPN, SEN, COL could still qualify
The biggest drama being Group D with Argentina in search of a Messi miracle.
I am sure this can be improved but still like the fact that in one visual I can get all groups with a visual clue at glance as well as all matches and scores. An interactive version can link or show, in-page, all highlights and more stats for each macth. Simplified versions can be created — some shown at the bottom of this post.
