Chris Sutton predicts the second round of group games in Qatar

You may have been surprised by some of the early results at this World Cup, but BBC Sport football expert Chris Sutton saw at least one of them coming.

He was spot on with his prediction of Japan’s 2-1 win over Germany, and even got the correct scoreline too.

That was one of 12 results he called right from the first set of 16 fixtures, with a total of three exact scores, but how will he fare in the second round of group games?

Sutton is predicting the outcome of all 64 matches in Qatar and, before the tournament, he picked his two teams to go through from each group and reach the knockout stage.

He is backing France to win the World Cup (having been the only BBC pundit to say they would be world champions in 2018), believes England will reach the quarter-finals and thinks Wales will not get out of their group.
