Would this be the first year where the host country would not qualify for second round? It has never happened before.

Now almost all group have a weak team. Most likely three teams would via for final two spots from each group. Averaging the top three teams in the group would give much better outlook on which teams can comeout of from a group.

As per FIFA ranking avg:
Group G: 7.66 The strongest top three teams among all groups by far. Brazil
Group H: 12 Second strongest group with top three average. Spain
Group E: 13.3 Holland
Group A: 13.6 France
Group B: 14 Argentina
Group D: 15.6 Germany
Group C: 17 England
Group F: 22.6 Italy
+++

In both cases F is the weakest and H is among the top. E is second. G third, Next B and D, then A and C.
