Default The FIFA 2014 World Cup.

As nobody has mentioned much about the up coming world cup I thought I'd take the opportunity to start the thread.

Who is your fancy for the biggest prize in world football? I am going to chance my arm and go for the host Brazil, they have to be there or there about though I do feel this is a very open competition.

What about a lively outsider? You have to think Belgium could go pretty far with their talented squad, how about England can they even make it out of the group? I think they will 'just'. One things for sure its going to be a great summer of football, which will make the NFL season come round quicker.

Completely unoriginal viewpoint but I can't see past Brazil. There wil be huge pressure, but with the backing they will get can't see anyone beating them.

Europe's challenge is dwindling. Spain are on the decline, Holland look poor of late, whilst Italy are dogged, but nothing special. Germany are very suspect defensively. France are the team that will shock a few

Very dark horse - Colombia

Top scorer - Neymar.

i'd say at the moment England wont be getting out of the group.

i think Brazil will win it (although i can see Argentina getting to the final.)

i agree about Uruguay being a dark horse.

Portugal might not make it out of there group.

the Dutch to make it to the Semis/

England have to go out to win, rather than attempt to stifle the opposition.

Given they can't play the possession game, they will have to play quickly and physically to get any joy. Unfortunately the weather and the refereeing will put pay to that.

They won't get out of their group, unfortunately
