Group E

Roundly viewed as one of the "weaker" groups in Brazil, this has to also be one of the more open--France are expected to coast to the top spot, and while Honduras are capable of causing an upset or two, this one looks to be the most important for settling the second qualifying spot. Those with a Liverpool interest will enjoy watching Xherdan Shaqiri, the most dangerous for the Swiss from an attacking perspective, and some are still holding out hope that Liverpool will make an approach for left-back Ricardo Rodriguez.

If you watched the England friendly against Ecuador last week you got some idea of who's in the Ecuadorian side; Antonio Valencia is the most recognizable name in a squad that finished fourth in CONMEBOL qualifying. Enner Valencia (no relation) has impressed for Pachuca this past season, and if Reynaldo Rueda's side can get a result here, they'll be confident of their chances at advancing.
