Are you ready for the big one?!!!


What are we expecting in this world cup? Surely alot! This time around, most of the stars of the planet are having much more plenty of rest and they are playing in Europe which is very familiar in terms of weather, food, culture and all that which were used as excuses for many to underperform in the previous one.

Who are my predicted favourites? Here they are from the strongest to the weakest best 3 of my choice.
1. Brazil
(Let's face it, they are such a complete side this time around for any department, how can they possibly be not the best? To me, this squad is twice more scary than the previous one.)
2. England
(I have to admit this is England's most strongest squad in many, many years. They have to grab this opportunity well!)
3. Argentina
(Argentina is always very consistent and always up there among the strongest in the world. They have less stars than England so I push them to no.3)

Who will I be supporting? Spain of course but they are on par with Holland for their ability to underperform in the big stage. Will it happen again? Oh well, why not? Haha!

Players to watch? Let's talk about the young guns who may shine.
Cesc Fabregas
Robin van Persie
