What's that group called???Is that called "group of death"
In the football or basketball games or something else,if a team draws a bad lot and is divided into a group where this team is destined to lose and to be fouled out.
A "group of death" is a group which doesn't have any weak teams in it. It means it's very difficult to predict who will qualify from the group.
One of the most famous groups of death (Group C) is from the 1982 football World Cup in Spain. This contained:
Argentina (current world champions)
Brazil (most world cup titles)
Italy (the eventual winners)
Compare this to Group A:
None of these teams have ever won the world cup.
