Teams Most Likely to Win the 2014 FIFA World Cup

The voting period for this list has ended.
The Top Ten
1 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Germany has the most complete team. They could create two different teams, and they both will have a more than decent chance to win the World Cup. They have Neuer, one of the best goalkeepers of today, an outstanding defense with players such as Hummels, Mertesacker, Boateng, Badsturber, the captain Lamn, amongst others. They have an unbelievably powerful midfield. With players such as Khedira, Ozil, the genius Schweinsteiger, Muller, and the two incredibly fast Gotze and Reus, they will just dominate their opposition. And with Klose about to break Ronaldo's record, Gomez, and a Podolski with an unbelievably powerful shot, they have more than a complete team. Brazil may be the favorites, but Germany is the most complete. Most teams already figured Spain's way of playing. Portugal is a good team if you think that a two person team is good. If anything happens to Ronaldo or Pepe, they will suffer badly. And with most of Germany's players playing in the Bundesliga, mainly Dortmund and ...more

Germany all the way! It's the most complete team. Unlike Argentina they don't lack a good defense... They have a world class goal keeper and the best striking ammunition in the world after Argentina... But Argentina as I said lacks defense but Germany does not

It may just be the closest match ever recorded on a FIFA final. With Germany and Brazil the obvious 2 to be in the final... Germany may just snatch The 4th World cup title under their belt. Reason Being is simple, Brazil are way to laid back. I Don't care how good you are, if you don't use your full potential, it's worthless. Brazil play for fun, they don't play to win anymore, and that's why they will lose. Unlike Germany, who play to win. A bit crazy aggressive on the Attack, but they have solid defense and a goalkepper that can handle himself against Messi and Christiano Ronaldo! Germany will win this final either by a perfect corner in the 90+3 minute mark, or they will win in the penalty shoot out, since I've never really seen them lose a penalty shoot out before. Now, they won't win without a fight though... No No No, Brazil will prove to be better opponents than even Spain, but as long as Germany plays like they did in 2012 against Brazil, they will win not only the FIFA, but ...more

Germany will win because not only do they have amazing defense with Hummels, Badstuber, Boateng, they also have the best goalkeeper between the posts. They have Reus on the left wing who is super fast and has amazing shooting ability. They have Ozil in Central Attacking Mid, Gotze, Klose or Gomez for striker. With Bayern and Dortmund being super strong at the moment, team Germany is sure to be very strong as well. Teams like Spain and Brazil are amazing, but they don't possess the speed the Germans have when on a counter attack. Spain passes way too much, their style has been figured out by most teams. They play too perfectly, like robots and have a chance at 3rd place, but not first. Italy has a really old Pirlo who is sure to croak any time soon, Balotelli is amazing, but Osvaldo is pretty bad. They will be out group stage. Portugal are quite good if you think one man teams are good. If anything happens to Ronaldo with his injury, they will not make it out of the group stage. If ...more

2 Brazil

If it's the will of GOD, Brazil will surely win this time. The 1950 world cup loss to Uruguay at their home soil are still fresh in their minds. We know there are lots of other strong teams like Germany, Italy, Spain, Argentina, France and even Uruguay again. But since the team knows that their country expects nothing less than winning the World Cup 2014 at home soil, the Brazilian team is going to play like anything no matter whatever pains they are going to face. They also know that apart from the group games, they are going to face all the strong and mighty teams on their way to the Finals. So they will surely not allow the game to go away from their hand.

Brazil has always been one of the most successful teams over the years. Brazilian team look stronger than last appearance in the WORLD CUP. It is a matter of time now for the young lads from Brazil take back the pride of their nation. The Brazilian team is a young side with lots of potentiality. The home support is going to help them a lot this time. However the strong competitors like Spain, Germany, Argentina, Italy, Portugal and Uruguay may have some big names and talent but the players of Brazil will be difficult to be beaten in their nation. This team has improved since last couple of months much more than the 2010 World Cup. Brazilian players will probably come up with good impact in the group stages and win the World Cup this time. The combination of players like Dani Alves, David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Marcelo gives them good solid defense and of course rising stars Neymar, Oscar, Hulk will give them strong attacking forward. The fans are keen to see Brazil winning World Cup 2014 ...more

If you see the squad of Brazil then it is easily observable that the team is totally balanced. In defense, top most defenders in the world are there, in midfield this is a total package that means here defensive, center and attacking midfielders are comparatively consistent and finally in striking position, everyone knows who they are. This is I am voting for Brazil. Why I am not voting for Germany because they have good midfield but their defense and strikers are not so much impressive. In recent months, they are loosing colour in game. Bayern Munich is not the representative of Germany. This is for last few years what Bayern is doing, is not possible for Germany.

The Brazilian team is a young side with lost of potentiality. the home support is going to help them a lot this time. However the strong competitors like Spain, Germany, Argentina, Italy, Portugal and Uruguay may have some big names and talent but the players of Brazil will be difficult to be beaten in their nation. This team has improved since last couple of months much more than the 2010 World Cup. Brazilian players will probably come up with good impact in the group stages and win the World Cup this time. Players like Dani Alves, David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Marcelo gives them good solid defense and ofcouse rising star Neymar, Oscar, Hulk will give them strong forward. The fans are keen to see Brazil winning World Cup 2014 and Bring the pride back home.

3 Argentina

The fantastic four (leo, kun, dim, higz) is the undisputed strongest attack in the world. The current coach do not believe in old Argentina's way of playing possession he created some beasts in counter attacks in the team which can down any team in the world. Plus the biggest point is they are not weak in defense anymore. Whoever thinks they are weak in definitely would be in for a surprise/shock in the wc2014. Sabella created a twin tower in the name of Garay and Federico.

No one can beat Argentina! Argentina has the best defenser in the world! If the best players of Argentina like messi, tevez, Di Maria, higuain! ! Try their best then of course Argentina will win! Argentina is the the weaker team. Not many national squads can that they bolster such a formidable attack. So, chill guys Argentina will be in final I believe and one thing Argentina has beat Brazil and Germany In their last 2010 match! So Argentina has good chance to win this World Cup! This time will surprise you wait and see and who don't like this team then don't read this comment also! You don't deserve it!

Argentina deserves the win! They have amazing players! Anyone saying Argentina has weak defense is wrong! Argentina has grown stronger in that area. On top of a better defense, the thing about Argentina that really makes the team are their incredible strikers. Messi, Di Maria, Higuain and more are the marvelous forwards of the team. Besides the fact that I am also Argentinian, I cheer for Argentina because of their soul and passion in the game. You grab that and add in talent, you've got the best team out there!

My 5 reasons on why Argentina is my pick to win the cup:

1) None of the big European teams like Germany or Netherlands have experience playing in the South American tropic rainforest climate. Out of the big teams, only Brazil and Argentina, with Uruguay and Colombia as also good contenders given the experience in such climate.

2) Argentina will play almost like mini locals. The amount of 'hinchas' (fans) that will travel to follow them is expected to be the 2nd largest after local Brazil. On top of that, Argentinian 'hinchas' are extremely passionate and loyal, sometimes even reaching levels of disproportionate passion resembling the infamous British Hooligans.

3) Based on the schedule, if they win all their games, they meet with local favorite Brazil only in the finals, and the strong teams they would face before Brazil are either Germany, Netherlands or Italy, none of which have any experience playing in the summer of the humid rainforest weather, plus they ...more

4 Netherlands

They did surprisingly well last time around. They tend to control the game and the pace every time they play. They just had a lack of good strikers. You can never rule them out as contenders. Much of the old guard has retired and are being replaced by new young talent that can keep up to anyone on the field. They are well organised and work well as a team on the whole. The management of old are gone and the new are stepping up their game and filling in the gaps where they lacked support and talent. I have watched many games where they ruled the pitch but couldn't buy a goal. That is changing now and they are playing a much more open game while still retaining control of the ball. Spain was their downfall last time around and I don't think they will let that happen again. Their first game is against Spain... That will be their ultimate chance to see if they have what it takes this time round.

Van Persie and Robben are two incredibly talented footballers who both have the ability to score. However, they are very different players. Van Persie, who has just recovered from an injury, he is more of a timing goal scorer which means he has amazing timing when running on to long balls sent to him by his teammates. To sum that up, he is a very quick player. Then there is Robben, who is very patient player who uses his skill set to get the goal. Together as a team Holland has a great team chemistry.

My early prediction is it's definitely Netherlands. Netherlands is an unbeatable team and the Van Persie Goal aka the flying Dutchman goal was outstanding. They crushed Spain and they surely will crush any team it competes with. Germany is a very strong team but it will definitely face its flaws once it faces off Netherlands. It's an unbelievably fierce team and has never won the world cup. This time it's Netherlands.P. S I'd love to see Germany and Netherlands face off again it would definitely be 'something'.

Just to remind everyone. The Netherlands obliteraed Spain 5-1 at the group stage, while Brazil tied against Mexico after they disappointed in their first game. Unlike most teams, the Betherlands has multiple 5-star players with RVP, Robben, Sneijder, and de Jong. Argentina only has Messi who never does well internationally, and Portugal can only rely on Ronaldo. The Netherlands is the best team to have never won the world cup, but with Manchester United's next coach, Louis van Gaal this might finally be that time where they win the ultimate prize.

5 Spain

There are great teams in this world cup, Germany has a great squad, Brazil as well, but Spain is above being a "great" team.
They are pure football, the approach every team targets.
Someone posted above talking about how professional Germany played compared to Brazil, which, in his opinion, played more for fun and the distress factor was they bet for the win.
I'm sorry for the person posting this cause I'd be ashamed if I hadn't considered Spain as a combination of ambition and fun.
Brazil might host it and Germany might be favourite, but remember that they've been favourite over the last years and Spain has kept breaking the stats. Don't underestimate a country just cause they've won everything, ambition is endless.

They are the best team in the world right now. They have experience on their side and they are known to pressure of the finals.

Unlike Germany, who is extremely talented, but for the last 8 years they can't pass the semi-final mark. I think, Spain is stronger than them, simply because they have more experience. Xavi, Iniesta, Ramos all of them are used to the pressure and expectations from their fans.

Brazil is obviously a huge favourite, but they won the Confederations Cup. No one in the history of World Cup has won the Confederations Cup and the World Cup the following year, so I trust the stats. Also the huge pressure from the fans can make Brazilian players nervous.

Argentina - they are strong in attack, but incredibly weak in defense for Spain's strikers and midfielders it won't be extremely hard to break their defense and very often Spain only needs 1 chance to score.

So, Spain all the way!

They have the greatest team in world. Their aging players still remain top competitors in clubs, while their youth is in very high demand across Europe. Spain has the ability to combine the pure class and experience of players like Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez, Xabi Alonso, and Casillas with the fresh talented players such as Koke, Juan Mata, and Carvajal, Spain is an all around complete team. With a solid set of central defenders (Pique and Ramos), many amazing fullbacks, a midfield with too many amazing players to count, and an offense that will be lead by the strikers Diego Costa and Negredo, no one will be able to beat the versatility of this year's Spain squad.

Spain will be in the final, they have the best track record over the last few years with the only loss being to Brazil last year. The players are used to playing together as they mostly come from the same two teams. They have experience and incredible talent. Brazil plays at home and has an incredible team but Spain will be surprising them all, in my opinion Spain has the best team currently in the world.

6 Italy

Everyone always underestimates Italy, but then the Italians find a way to surprise and triumph. They certainly did in 2006, and in 2012, when they made it to the finals of the Euros. I can't believe that England is ranked higher than a country that held Spain to a nil-nil draw and was the first to have more possession than them when they played in the Confederations Cup in quite some time. I tip the Italians so make it out of the group stage and to at least the round of eight. Maybe they'll even make it to the final. Either way, don't rule them out or underestimate them.

Italy has already defeated England 2-1 and now that Uruguay has been defeated as well, there is no team who can stand a chance to them in their group: Italy has the best goal keeper in the world, Buffon, and excellent players like Pirlo, Balotelli and De Rossi not counting that they have a truly impressive defense as well. Italy won the World Cup 4 times (only Brasil won more times. And stats as well show how much stronger Italy is then other major teams having beaten Germany 15 times in 32 games (10 draws) (7 defeats). Spain could have been a threat but their defeat 5-1 against Netherlands was humiliating.

Italy has always beat Germany in any professional game except for friendlies. Also Argentina only has Messi as a good player but their defense sucks. Italy also tied with Spain when they were a player down and scored on them. If anything Brazil will beat them because of a home advantage but Italy will be a major factor in the World Cup. In 2010 they just got balotelli and weren't use to him on the team making them lose early. I believe they will win in Brazil against Germany. But that would be the best game to watch.

Except for the embarrassment of 2010, Italy always turn up to big tournaments and their development since Prandelli took over is outstanding. Being Italian, I like that most people underestimate the Italian National team, it keep the odds high! There is no doubt ill be putting a few pounds down on Italy to win. Sure, Brazil, Argentina, Germany and Spain may be a step ahead but Italy are right behind them, demonstrated recently against Spain in the confederations cup and Germany in the Euros.

7 Portugal

Portugal, seems to have the better of complete teams in the world. Facing the world champs Spain 4 years ago proved that they were on the verge of a spectacular finish. 1 goal was the difference and the winner of that game went to win everything, which could have gone either way. 4 years ago it could have gone either way, but this is 2014. Portugal has the right chemistry right now, all they need is for the greatest in the world to show up! Ronaldo scores, Portugal advances... This could be the last World Cup for the great one as a starter, so I believe the team wants to make it a great finish.

I spoke with a wise man who "will answer any question" about Portugal. The man was sitting on a chair along a busy street, with a sign stating The Great Zamboni Will Answer Any Question. I asked him how the US would do this year, and who would win the World Cup. He paused, reflected, looked down, looked up, and told me Portugal would win. He said the US will win their first two games (game 2 is vs. Portugal I think! ), and they will advance out of Group G, but that Portugal will win it all. So. There's your answer. Adios Germany!

Portugal is actually a very strong team... to me they r 2nd likely to win after Germany... Their goalkeeper is very strong and has very fast reflexes and is able to save each ball from passing the goal line... The biggest advantage for Portugal is Cristiano Ronaldo, with his one of a kind skills, he is able to play strong offense and it has been proven by scientists that Ronaldo is able to jump higher than a average NBA player. Plus, he has one of the strongest and most impressive kicks during free kicks, corner kick and naturally when playing. Also Cristiano has a lot of experience playing because of the many clubs he has participated in and currently is playing for real Madrid and for the national Portugal team. This is why Portugal might be the winner of the World Cup 2014 but no one knows what will happen... Clearly I'm a Portugal fan but I know that both Germany and Brasil are great teams but Portugal might be able to win with skill and luck... This is why I think Portugal might ...more

I think that Portugal, is a very imprevisible team, it will show at world who are Portugal. We will sell expensive the defeat in the World Cup. We have a equilibrated defense, Bruno Alves, Pepe and Coentrao very experient players and they played/play in the bests clubs in the world. Joao Pereira in my opinion is the weakest point of the team... we have, for me, the best box-to-box in the world, Moutinho (the motor of the team), William Carvalho (young Sporting player, United and Arsenal want to have this player next season), Fernando (luso-Brazilian will play City next season)... Nani (United player, when he has the better form he's one of the best players in the world) and CR7 (WORLD BEST PLAYER)... Now, tell me this isn't a favourite team to win the world cup...cOM ON!

8 France

France have a good chance of winning the whole thing because they have a world class offense paired with some of the best defenders in the world. They have a lot of young talent like Pogba and Verane but these youngsters are used to playing for some of the best teams in the world and against the best opponents. They're guaranteed to go on to the semi finals and wouldn't be surprised if they win the whole competition.

France won a qualification in such a way. That team is the only one which succeeded to be qualified after a 0-2 in the first two matches with a 3-0, very famous in France since 98's final. Won 98 and 2000 world cup and euro, was in the final in 2006, is the only country which had beaten Brazil 3 times in a world cup, it is in Brazil, I fell that country will win!

It's redemption time for France after the debacle in 2010. France is ready to move on, look ahead and forget about the dark past. They will show they have what it takes to contend again with those amazing teams. And remember last time France won, they were not the favorite at all...

I have faith in France. I may live in the USA but my name is Paris so you probity get it. The reason I believe in France is because of their AMAZING performance with Switzerland. 5 to either 1 or 2. I think France will make it to the Semi finals.

9 England

Personally I think that if England choose the right players and put them in the right position, they can go very far, and could even win the world cup! I also think that Rooney should not be a member of the england team, main or substitute, he makes too many mistakes and is too over rated. The perfect team would be:
Joe Hart as Goal Keeper
Steven Gerrard, Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley and Adam Lallana in Mid-field
Daniel Welbeck, Daniel Sturridge and Glen Johnson playing Forward
Phil Jagielka, Glen Johnson, Gary Cahill and Jack Wilshere in defense

From the recent matches I have watched and from what I have seen from each of these players, I think if these people are put to play on in these positions England will go far. England can not afford to make mistakes in this world cup. I believe England have very talented footballers this year and if they try their hardest, they can do anything.

England are not ready to win a worldcup. Sometimes I feel they are under a spell or mayb they play with fear *confused*. they v good players that are even good enough to take dem all d way but they put less efforts in a game. England, you v good players. WAKE THE HELL UP!

I get a 'sneaky' feeling that this young England squad led in the main by Liverpool players have it in them to reach the semi-finals. Yes, they are in a tough group but they do possess the quality to see off all/any opposition - Believe!

England will win the world cup cause they will pass the ball through any defense and score a bucket full on goals with skill and precision. With the philosopher of football Rooney leading the line.

10 Belgium

Belgium has got a very talented midfield and very good strikers (e.G. Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne) in its team! Their ball possession is often higher than the posession of their opponents.
This young generation is especially strong both physically and mentally. Marc Wilmots (manager) sees the small things but he is very confidential and is like a father for his team. The social connection is extremely high, which doubtless is an advantage! NATURAL TALENTS!

Belgium is an exciting country with so much talent. There's not one position on their team you could say was an area to exploit when playing against them. They're all top professionals and could be real challengers for the trophy in Brazil. The likes of Hazard, Lukaku and Kompany shows just how good they are in all areas of the pitch. Belgium are definitely the ones to watch out for.

Belgium possess a complete first team, with plenty of high quality substitutes. The midfield is especially strong with plenty of tactical, physical and intelligent players. A big part of the squad play for the best teams in the the premier league. Their youth will give them the ambition and motivation needed to win the world cup.

Feel like Belgium Have the good chance to win if they play with counter attack game. only my concern is the strikers in the team,
Feel strikers is weakest link in the team. coach should play with right formation to allow the fast midfielders to take control attacking part.
I will say Belgium still have very good chance to book ticket for the final
If the play right formation.

The Contenders
11 Mexico

As much as people doubt Mexico will win, the attitude they've entered this World Cup with is really helping them pull through. I think they actually have a shot at winning, if not, then getting really far. They have great players and a great coach going for them this year. I say people stop underestimating Mexico because they might end up surprising everyone.

I believe that Mexico will win because they were trying there best to win. I don't care if they lose because they will still be my favorite team then any so any of you think they won't then you are just crazy. You might disagree but I won't I bet they will win them any other team and if they don't well they will still be the best for me...

Mexico will have a new coach and has new local popular team that has the heart to win. Unlike the most popular Mexican stars that are unable to play as a team. Hopefully miguel herrera remain new coach with their new local squad. This young new team has the heart and ability to play together to world cup in Brazil

The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime. Be proud of being Mexican! I love Mexico! Buena suerte Mexicans! Hope you make it to the finals and hold the cup with your bare hands!

12 Colombia

Colombia has more quality players than Mexico, Uruguay, England or Belgium, it also has a much better defense than Argentina and play much better collectively than Brazil. It is amazing to see so many comments from people that until recently didn't know anything about football. Watch the games people, football is a totally different beast this days, don't just base your comments on what some reporter says on the news. Quality football comes from quality players and a quality coaching staff and that's what Colombia has right now.

Colombia knows how to play fair and doesn't need to play dirty to win a game, and we can see that when they won against Uruguay on Saturday. Even though this is only their second time entering the World cup, they know how to play and have fun with it. Every time they have a game you can expect that stadium to be filled with yellow! Colombia hasn't lost a single game and we can say the next challenger will be going home, as well.

Colombia is a great team they beat Greece 3-0 they beat ivory coast 2-1 they beat Japan 1-4 and they beat Uruguay 2-0 they might have a chance to beat Brazil and win the world cup. Colombia has great strikers and honestly I think the best one they have is James Rodriguez. Also even without falcao Colombia is a great team and they show a lot of teamwork and who can forget there celebration dance moves they are the best. So Colombia definitely has a chance to win the world cup #Colombiacandothis #Colombiaisthebest

Colombia has proved that they can do it. The are strong and maybe they don't have star players like Brazil, Argentina, Spain and more but they have the guts and they're willing to try and do their best. They play as a team all united they cheer up the stadium they dance they smile they laugh they bring joy to peoples faces and maybe they do have a chance to be at the quarter finals.

13 Uruguay

Made it to semi-finals last world cup, won the first world cup ever played, and we beat Brazil to take the world cup in 1950. That means we will come first place especially sine we've got cavani, forlan, and Suarez. Now Forlan may not be starting in the big games against Italy and england I'm pretty sure. But Even though he's 35 I believe he's still got it, and when they put him in the field he'll do work. So lets go Uruguay!

Uruguay has excellent players, like Suarez, Cavani, et at. This time is playing close to home, for being a neighbour country and a former State of Brazil. Many Brazilian would love to re-edit a Brazil-Uruguay final in Maracana stadium. Also, in June, July the weather is not too hot what is more similar to the River Plate area. So the final shall be Brazil- Uruguay, fifty fifty.

Uruguay will most likely be in the semi-finals if they can finish first in their tough group. Once there with luck and their top players still intact without yellow/red cards they can beat anyone, especially Brazil. They are the ultimate darkhorse/underdog... Everyone always seems to forget that. The've been proving the world wrong for almost 100 years now.

Uruguay will win the world cup because they have determination. They may have a really small country but when they play Futbol, they go harder than any other country. They have a lot of spirit, and their really fun to watch as they don't take forever handling the ball as they like to attack fast.

14 Costa Rica

Costa Rica has been underestimated! I think we have a fair chance of winning because we have faced some pretty aggressive and great teams and we won. So far in the 2014 games we haven't lost to a single country so why not continue to aspire to win and succeed and I know we will! Costa Rica for the World Cup!

Underrated by far. This list is clearly outdated and should be remade, given that many of the "top" countries are already knocked out. Costa Rica earned to be much higher up on this list. A passionate and motivated team! Excellent performance so far in this World Cup!

Costa Rica is a very good team! Many people underestimate Costa Rica's abilities. People started believing in the team when they won against Italy. It's totally going to win the World Cup!

They have a really good. Campbell is the main guy. Like come on they beat Italy 1-0 and they beat Uruguay 3-1. They are the most surprising team this year. Costa Rica! Costa Rica! Costa Rica!

15 United States

Firstly, let me get something straight... US has Clint Dempsey; the next generation captain of the U.S. Plus, according to FIFA, because they pulled off to win with Ghana, (which is a team far better than U.S. ), they have a huge chance to win against Portugal. A few reasons why Portugal might lose to U.S. is because Ronaldo has a leg injury, and he doesn't even play that much anymore and stays mute to the game between Portugal and Germany. Also, Pepe is out of the game and he was one of the best defenders in their team.
I have patriotism for my country. I don't really know about you guys. But the coach of U.S. has motivation.U.S. has skills, all it needs is some motivation which the German Coach is successfully delivering to the U.S.
This year, U.S. has a strong start and by no doubt, make it into the next round.

People love to underestimate the USA but what the world needs to realize is that the USA creates the most innovative and impressive people. I am not speaking of Average Joe I am speaking of those Americans which are truly free and know it. How are they truly free? Because Americans hold an UNWAVERING belief that they are better than the rest of the world. They even have a name for it it is called ETHNOCENTRISM which means to believe your nation is better than all others. Many view this as a bad thing but the fact is that it makes them EXTREMELY determined prove exactly that point. And what better way to prove that you are better than by working like a crazy man and to actually be the best. I know the USA will win simply on their unwavering determination to be the greatest in the world at EVERYTHING. on that note I am French and I do not much like the USA but I respect them so please keep in mind this is a non biased perspective.

I know how it feels to all of you people who are living here in America. You guys stick with other teams around the world and never support your own. Where the heck is your nationalism? Let me give you an example.
Imagine your family was playing against your best friend's family, and your family was losing... Whose family would you still support? Your's or his?
Hope you understand what I mean. I love my country, and I would die to save it. But let me get my word out, I'm going to live up to see U.S. A hold the World Cup Trophy.

Leave it to the French guy to call us ignorant. French people are generally pompous in their own right. Many people from countries aside the US would say the same. I think the US is doing quite well so far. Ahead of many of the top picks from this no it all French guy who spent hours typing out his bloated opinions on this blog. If your going to analyze teams then do it right and leave your racist attitude out of it.

16 Chile

They almost defeated Spain, it ended 3-3 with a Spanish last minute goal, they have grown outstandingly as a team. They also have defeated France and are as I'm writing this about to defeat England. They have Sanchez in Barcelona and Vidal is a key player in Juventus. They have also shown their skill against teams from southamerica during the qualifications.

I'm voting for Chile because of 2 reasons. 1) I'm Chilean so... I kinda need to vote for Chile. 2) In this chart, It says that the United States will get in a higher position even though they are in the group of death with Germany, Portugal, and Ghana. Chile has a higher chance than the US of winning

Smart coach, good players, performance going up and up!
They almost defeated Spain (game ended draw just by Spain's luck), draw with Brazil in Brazil while Chile was still testing the team, defeated england in Wembley.
Watch out!

Chile, Will be playing in their eviroment, thousands of Chileans will cheer their team, as Latin blooded the moral support is much more important to give them the push necessary to achive big results. Chile will surprize every one!

17 Japan

This year, the Asian teams have got a tatic that is sure to work. They make a circle that is hard to destroy and then pass to each other, then the last person in the circle scores. Japan is the best Asian team for I know, so yeah, they have a chance

Japan is strong and has won many matches. Also the had been practicing very hard to win the World Cup. They also have strong player such as Honda, Kagawa, Yuto, and many more!

It's not impossible for them to reach the top slot... they are smart... all they need is more tactics and practice. Good Luck Japan!

Japan has good players and good skills as a team.

18 Australia

Australia defiantly! They haven't won yet but that WILL stop now they have a way better coach and awesome players! Their bound to win
GO AUSSIE!

They have three new coaches so being as good as the 2006 team will not be achievable as getting in the world cup with Brazil they might just make it.

Australia all the way! Although they haven't won before, they can now because they have the best coach and great players.

Australia all the way! Although they haven't won yet, that's why they didn't have the best coach and great players.

19 Pakistan

Pakistan are rapidly improving and are expected to be in the 2022 World Cup. The youngsters are really good making it to the semis in Street Child World Cup. Pakistan also made the ball so they are now excited by soccer, not only cricket.

Pakistan is going to make it to semis before 2034 World cup no doubt.

Pakistan lacks basic infrastructure but they are brimming with talent and if given proper attention they can form a very good team. As the official ball makers for 2014 world cup we expect them to produce quality players who can strike that ball too.

Pakistan has now started to suck at cricket. Know why? Because they're getting amazing at football. I mean look at them, they won the Street Children World Cup (almost). But still, I'm expecting them to win the world cup in the next 12 years at least!

Pakistan has too much raw raw talent, world has seen Pakistan in street children worldcup. FIFA should invest in Pakistan. They have the power to compete. They can win World Cup but after 20 years.

20 Croatia

Croatia has the heart to win it all... They do have more heart than skill but the skill is not lacking anything... I look forward for an underdog ( or someone new) to take it ( Colombia, Croatia, USA, Uruguay, Mexico) or even Holland!

Maybe because I m croat but as you see luka modric (maestro), with rakitic (sensation), and most important mateo kovacic growing to be the best midfielder in the world, I think that is awesome midfielder creation.

Croatia unlike other teams, don't have a star player, which upper teams do but they have a GREAT all around team.

Don't think Croatia is out. They can be real contenders to make it to the quarter finals.

21 Russia

With Fabio Capello as a manager, and taking the first place during qualifying, with Portugal barely qualifying against Sweden. Russia has some consider a hidden gems. And losing only once so far in this race. And having a standard grouo with Belgium and Algeria and South Korea. They have high chance of progressing with Belgium to the Knockout Stages. And who knows, they may finally reach semi finals! And suprise us!

Russia is a young country full of young players, but they still have some players with experience like Kerzhakov. Furthermore no country is really taking Russia seriously and yet they only conceded 2 goals during qualifying. As well as that Russia is the champion for beach football and mini football both times beating Brazil in the finals!

Russia has great chances of success, will beat the opponents like nothing to do and goodbye, comrades!

Russia may not have the best team, but some good Russian players play for other countries...

22 Canada

With out a doubt Canada will never win the world cup with the team they have.. like seriously 8-0 loss to Honduras its embarrassing. lets hope pass the first stage of qualifying in 2018!

More players play soccer then hockey and we can't even make the world cup...

A league called OPDL ( ontario provincial development league) will help Canada in the World Cup by 2022... Same for the females

Wait till I'm a bit older, Canada will win in 2018 if not then 2022.

23 Greece

I am from Greece and I love my country but come on we all saw how Colombia beat them and hard and come on 3/4 and even more people were cheering for Colombia, I wish them luck because they need it BADLY.

Strong defense, top of the art counterattacks, deadly free kicks and corner kicks. Great spirit and defending a country on crisis; all you need to make it to the quarter- or semifinals.

They need their deffence to start the counter attack and their 2 strikers to push and take chances... More importantly they need luck, luck... They're not going to win the cup but they can be a big surprise like in 04

Greece has a really really big chance to surprise the world, because that's what they are famous for... I think they can make the quarter final or semi's!

24 Switzerland

If you win your group in Europe, you can win the cup. But they will be satisfied with reaching the semi

Best defense I have seen so far Argentina got lucky with that one goal defeating swizerland but to me swizerland won!

Number #6 in the world and they are at #38! What?!?!

Because I bet on them... 500/1 come on.

25 Cameroon

Please win it would really be awesome everybody is saying they wont so they should really try because it only come every 4 years.

Eto"o sucks Eto"o sucks Eto"sucks.

They hurt other players

Well I want them to win!
