Unless you live under a rock, you’ll be aware that the FIFA World Cup kicked off just last week in Sao Paulo, Brazil. You may not be aware, however, that developer Actozsoft has updated free-to-play footy management sim One For Eleven with a new game mode called World Nations Cup, which is a tournament that allows real players from around the world to manage their national team.

All managers were chosen (based on a bidding process) last week, and since then, matches have been taking place. Actozsoft would like to share information about the current standing of the competition, including the 32 teams that are still left in the competition.

Remember: all of the information below is based on participation from real-world players.

Japan and Panama have the best chance of advancing from Group A, according to Actozsoft. The developer believes that France will advance from Group B, and Vietnam and Bosnia and Herzegovina will make it through Group C and Group D respectively.

The Netherlands, on the other hand, is the team most likely to top Group E, while Australia, Tunisia, and Belgium are expected to come out on top in Groups F, G, and H.

Group A is the deadliest group of the eight, thanks to Japan and Panama’s high attack ability and high-ranking goalkeepers.

Actozsoft wagers that the overall winner of the first World Nations Cup competition will, however, be the Netherlands, with France and Belgium finishing as runners up.

Download One For Eleven from the App Store [download] or Google Play [download] and prepare yourself for Season 2 of the World Nations Cup, which will kick off next week.
