World Cup Group C

Teams: Argentina, Holland, Serbia & Montenegro, Ivory Coast.

Strength of the group: Forget Group E, this is the tournaments real 'group of death'. Pernenial World Cup contenders Argentina and Holland are joined by the dangerous Serbia & Montenegro and the favoured outsiders Ivory Coast.

City link: No players featured in this group so the nearest link would be Holland who in recent times fielded former Blues Kiki Musampa and Paul Bosvelt.

Keep an eye on: Rafael van der Vaart. Former Ajax man lost his way a little but resurrected his career with a move to Hamburg.

Expect: The first yellow card for diving to come from this group. The bookies make Arjen Robben and Didier Drogba favourites.

Don't expect: Ruud van Nistelrooy to add a few million to his transfer value.

Qualifiers: Argentina to top the group with Serbia & Montenegro in second place ahead of Holland who will disappoint.
