  1. Besides Uruguay, Russia hasn’t played any real tough teams. Just as Argentina and Portugal were sent packing today, a lot of teams who lucked out in the first round will not be making the cut.

  2. The case of Iceland is different. Yes, it was an open group, supposedly, but it would be difficult to mek it to the next round. They played well against Nigeria and Croatia but lost. The surprise was their draw against Argentina.
