Many Brazilian fans cannot brush off the memory of being crushed by Germany in the 2014 World Cup. Still, the fans have not stopped supporting Brazil.

Now the team has some talented young players who are showing hope for the team in this World Cup.
Though France couldn’t win the Euro Cup 2016, great things are expected of them in this World Cup. They have the strongest line-up. There are a number of young talented players in the team who may show some outstanding performance on this World Cup.
Spain has shown some great performances over the years. They had won the World Cup in 2010 and the Euro Cup in 2012. However, they were defeated by Brazil in the Confederations Cup in 2013. In the World Cup qualifiers, they performed well and that’s why it’s one of the favorite teams.
Argentina had a rough journey this time. They even had the risk of not being qualified for the World Cup this year. However, they beat Ecuador in Quito and confirmed their participation in the World Cup. Argentina has pulled themselves back and shown that they can handle the pressure.
