I say Germany--they break the hold on South America that South American teams have had and on 13 July 2014 in Rio they win their 4th Cup.

The groups are set. Whaddaya think?

After 10 days without an answer, I think we can safely assume, WHO really gives a F*-k?

It seems like Spain has maintained its dominance pretty well.

Except their foreign stars in La Liga, Spanish have offered equal performances to Dutch, English, French, Gernam or American soccer players. In such events on the international scale, politics officiating and physical preparedness often matter lately. I bet the French UFEA emperor, who was furious before the South African cup, knows this all. Then, Sepp Blatter likely knows what the difference when a draw is favorable to one and when a ref is assigned certian duties is. I can't imagine how frustrated about all the corruption allegations against him he must be. But I am sure the US team traveling to the appointed Brazilian destinations to play against as favorite opponents will feel it too. The luck of the draw, officials, players state of mind and weather will more likely decide the next "best team". However all this plays into the FIFA king's cards, to him Sweaterland, one of the eight best world teams, should win it all.

Everyone does. This was posted six months before showtime. A little too early perhaps, but many are starting to think about it.
