The CaughtOffside team has got together and used every inch of football knowledge we have to predict what’s going to happen at this summer’s World Cup…
How do you think we’ve done?!
Who’s going to win the World Cup?
Brazil. At a canter ‘n’ all. Filipe Luis, Miranda, Coutinho and Lucas Moura can’t make the squad? Wow. People don’t realise quite how brilliant their home crowd is going to be either yet either.
Spain. I’d rather they didn’t, because they won the last World Cup and last two European Championships, but any squad that can leave the likes of Isco and Fernando Llorente behind is pretty formidable.
Spain. They are the best team in the world and have triumphed at three consecutive major tournaments.
Argentina. Their attacking four is frightening.
Brazil. Underrated at the back.
Heart says England, head says Argentina.
Argentina – South American teams will cope well with the conditions and I can see them spoiling Brazil’s party.
Which player will finish with the Golden Boot?
Fred. (Although Clint Dempsey at 1000-1, who takes penalties for USA, is an unbelievable each-way bet!)
Gonzalo Higuain. Argentina were handed a relatively kind draw for the group stage, and should come through as winners.
Lionel Messi is an obvious answer, but he has a great chance, considering Argentina play Iran, Nigeria and Bosnia-Herzegovina in their group.
Hulk. Will capitalise on the space created by Neymar.
Sergio Aguero: Proved to be a lethal finisher in the Premier League and has an easy-looking group.
Gonzalo Higuain – Proven at international tournaments and actually has a better scoring record for Argentina than Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi.
