We're in to the second half of our group-by-group World Cup countdown now as we focus on Group E.

1998 World Cup winners France will have been quietly pleased in December last year when the draw placed them alongside Switzerland, Honduras and Ecuador in Group E.

Despite the Swiss be among the eight seeded teams in the draw, few expect them to still be around come the latter stages of the tournament, while Honduras have perhaps overachieved in simply qualifying for the tournament.

South Americans Ecuador may spring a surprise or two in their home continent but it's hard to look past the French.

Nonetheless, we'll continue to talk you through each team, just use the arrows above or below to work your way through the four teams hoping to emerge from Group E.

Don't forget, you can catch up on our first four previews simply by clicking on the group that takes your face - Group A, Group B, Group C, Group D.
