World Cup as we all know is taking place in Brazil. Brazil is a fantastic venue for such an event and what an event it will be.  The world cup starts on Thursday 12th June and finishes on Sunday July 13th. Over 5 weeks of brilliant football and excitement. This blog gives our predictions of the group stage winners and the overall winner, the stadiums were the games are within Brazil, the last 10 countries were the world cup was held, winners of previous world cups and our prediction for the top 5 goal scorers.

The first world cup was held in 1930 and is held every 4 years. The last ten hosts of the world cup have been; South Africa, Germany, South Korea/Japan, France, US, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Argentina, & West Germany. But we expect Brazil to be one of the best! Brazil won 2 of the last 10 world cups with Argentina holding the exact same record. It makes for a very exciting event!

Brazil covers almost half of South America. It is the largest nation in the continent. Over a third of the country is drained by the amazing Amazon River & its tributaries, and did you know Brazil is the only Latin American nation that derives its language and culture from Portugal. The country in 2012 had a population of over 205 million with an increasing number predicted for 2013 & 2014. The capital of Brazil is Brasilia & the other major cities are São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Fortaleza. There are 12 stadiums in Brazil for the world cup and they are Maracanãin Rio Janeiro, this is the stadium where the final will be placed and can seat 71,159 supporters, Arena de São Pauloin São Paulo, Minerião in Belo Horizonte, Estádio Nacional de Brasilia  in Brasilia, Arena Castelãoin Fortalez, Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador, Estádio Beira-Rio  in Porto Alegre, Arena Pernambuco in Recife, Arena de Amazônia  in Manaus, Arena Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba, Arena des Dunas in Natal and finally Arena da Baixada.

We have spent time researching and guessing and have come up with our predictions of what teams will get out of each group and here is what we think;

Group A: Brazil & Mexico

Group B: Spain & Chile

Group C: Colombia & Cote d’Ivoire

Group D: Uruguay & England

Group E: France & Ecuador

Group F: Argentina & Nigeria

Group G: Portugal & Germany

Group H: Belgium & Russia

Belgium vs Argentina
 
Semi Finals: 
 Brazil vs Portugal

Final:

Brazil vs Argentina and we believe the home pressure will undo Brazil in the final for an Argentinian Victory!

If you have an interest in top goal scorers we think these will be the top 5 goal scorers of the world cup; Messi, Neymar, Aguero, Lukaku & Muller. We don’t dare try to put them in order of first, second, third, fourth or fifth.

After a lot of research and a bit of faith they are our predictions!
