The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil which is taking place between June 12th to July 13th, 2014 in Brazil, is the 19th edition of Soccer's most prestigious tournament. Brazil, having already won five titles, are very strong favorites to win the tournament. The current World Cup champion Spain was shockingly knocked out prematurely in the group stage bringing an end to an era of Spanish domination. Three-time champion Germany and two-time champion Argentina are also strong favorites to win the tournament.
This World Cup is turning out to be one of the most exciting on record with many upsets and averaging 2.8 goals per match making it the highest scoring since the 1970 World Cup. Euro soccer giants England, Italy, Portugal and Spain have all been knocked out in the group stage, and of the ten nations participating from the Americas a whopping 80% of them got through the group stage. Colombia, Costa Rica, Netherlands and USA are all looking to leave their mark on the 2014 World Cup. There are only eight nations that have won the World Cup: Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Uruguay. Will 2014 bring us a new member to this special list of countries? Who do you think will win it?
