No one is talking about this but the biggest sport spectacle in the world is less than 3 months away.

I have always been a big fan of the Selecao eversince. They’re my most favorite team, of all sports, then followed by Jordan’s Chicago Bulls. I know, they got shamed by Germany at their own turf 4 years ago, but the Brazilian team ( CBF) is going to come back with a vengeance. However, Germany remains the toughest team to beat and i wouldn’t count Brazil’s recent friendly win against them as a big factor in the coming event.

Here are my predictions;

- Brazil to win in the finals. If not, Germany or Spain
- Spain, France and Belgium are strong dark horses.
- Messi’s team will struggle in their bracket and Argentina will not reach the semis
- Team Mexico will provide the most exciting challenge for Germany in their bracket. An upset won't surprise me.

Remember these names...
- Coutinho will be an even bigger factor than Neymar for Brazil.
- Isco and Asensio will key Spain’s hot streak
- Muller continues his low key goal winners
- Ronaldo, as usual, won’t make any difference for his team and Portugal will go home early once paired with a mighty European team in the knockout stages

Sadly, perennial champions and contenders, Italy and Netherlands didn't qualify. Double shocker. No Chile either and although everyone wants it, Gareth Bale will again miss the greatest tournament in the world

I was wrong about Ronaldo. He made the bigggest impact in the opener with an exciting hattrick.

However, my apprehension was confirmed when Mexico upset defending champions, Germany.

Coutinho made his presence felt when he scored Brazil’s lone goal in a thrilling draw with Switzerland. I still believe his momentum will carry through.

Unbelievable!!!
The WORLD is having a HUGE fiesta with the World Cup!! And there is NOTHING here in this website... LOL..
No wonder the Philippines SUCKS.. in Futbol...
Just NO enthusiasm for the BIGGEST... LARGEST... GREATEST... sport on the planet!!
Absolutely nothing is even close!!!
or even no interest for GREATEST SPORTING EVENT ON THE PLANET!!!

It's down to the last 16 in the world. These best in the world will eventually crown a new champion. The current champion Germany couldn't survive the group stage with losses to Mexico and South Korea and was eliminated. And to think, going into the world cup they were ranked MUCH higher than #2 on the planet Brazil, and was by FAR the highest favored to win the entire tournament AGAIN!!

Good luck to the remaining world's elite on the planet!! May the best team win!!

Watched that game between SoKor and Germany...
What a game...
Germany took SoKor lightly and they dearly paid for it.


If Argentina can survive the France, they might upset whoever they will face in Top 8...


Just a what-if scenario....

WHAT IF JAPAN WILL WIN THE WORLD CUP?
