The World Cup is officially underway! Let's take a closer look at some of the play/team match-ups and see why they are appropriate.

Before I start, I freely acknowledge that much of the rationale presented below is tenuous and circumstantial at best, and totally spurious at worst. That's what you get when you base your pairings on such arbitrary measures such as overall line count and FIFA world rankings, neither of which take quality into account. If you have any better ideas as to why a particular pairing works, leave me a note in the comments! I need all the inspiration I can get.  

And here is Group B! I'm quite pleased with how Group B turned out.
