World Cup: Power Rankings

Just as we do on the podcast, we've decided to power rank the remaining 16 teams in the World Cup before the knockout stage begins on June 30th. We've taken into account all the matches up this point as well as the strength of each group. Power rankings are based on trends and are more of a "what have you done for me lately" type of ranking. So without further ado, here are our power rankings after the group stage.
