The World Cup is up and running and in full throttle and the World Cup fever can be felt in every corner of the globe. With exciting fixtures and results coming thick and fast, a new twist is always around the corner. But some teams have a better chance of winning than others. In a shock pair of results, the defending Champions Spain have been sent packing! But with them out of sight, lets take a look at the favourites of one of the biggest sporting event on the planet!
Germany are perhaps the team most people would put their money on to win this World Cup. With strength in depth in all the positions on the pitch, the German machine is a force to be reckoned with! With a star studded lineup, they are solid at the back and lethal in attack! They have no visible weaknesses and seem invulnerable to defeat this year.
A young Brazil side with no shortage of flair is also one of the teams to watch! With the home crowd rooting for them, they have a real chance to win the cup. Having a young squad may work in their favor as a young team can really absorb the atmosphere and fire up into another gear! They will look for the fans to act as their 12th man in their bid for the title.
The Netherland side is sturdy in defense! With a great work ethic and discipline in defense combined with lethal attackers in Arjen Robben and Robin Van Persie; they make a formidable team that can wreak havoc on any given day!
The Italians are a team no one would be looking forward to facing. The famous Italian defense is as impenetrable as ever and with their game flowing through the classy Andrea Pirlo, their attack is well equipped to break down any defence. They too will be looking to power their way to World Cup glory.
Argentina is a team that relies heavily on its attacking prowess to guide them to victory. With fragilities evident at the back they look to outscore their opponents in every game. Their attack is arguably the best attack seen in years with the likes of Angel di Maria, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero and a certain Lionel Messi occupying forward positions! Even Carlos Tevez couldn't make the team, such is their attacking strength. With incredible World Cup pedigree, they are one of the contenders for the title!
