World Cup Group D

Teams: Portugal, Mexico, Iran, Angola.

Strength of the group: Portugal should have enough to top the group but it will be a good chance to see if Mexico's world ranking of 4 is over inflated. Angola are complete unknowns and rank outsiders whilst Iran could be capable of causing a shock as several of their side have European experience.

City link: I'm struggling here - suggestions welcome!

Keep an eye on: The Iranian Medhi Mahdavikia - attacking midfielder who played for Hamburg during their impressive season.

Expect: Plenty of goals. All teams place an emphasis on attacking play and there could be a couple of high scoring contests in this group.

Don't expect: The runners up to progress much further as Argentina potentially lie in wait.

Qualifiers: Portugal to top the group, just holding off a strong challenge from Mexico.
