But they aren't sure that they will actually win the World Cup, despite having a home field advantage and one of the best teams in the world. Brazil has won the world cup five times, which is more than any other team in the world, but can they handle the pressure from their own crowd and fulfil their expectations of winning everything? Only time will tell.
However there should be little to no doubt about Brazil winning their opening match when the World Cup officially opens on Thursday, where the team takes on Croatia who is a great team, but should be no match for the samba happy nation.
“Brazil does, of course, have a good chance of going all the way,” Intertops spokesperson noted in a press release. “But their South American rivals, Argentina, will also be a big threat, especially if superstar Lionel Messi can find his top form again after his rather disappointing end to the season. Who knows – but I somehow doubt the Cup will be coming back to Europe this year!”
No team from Europe has ever won a world cup in South America and it doesn't look that positive for them to be able to do so this year, as many teams are struggling with injuries in important positions and with key players. Guys like Cristiano Ronaldo, Diego Costa and Franck Ribery are all out with injuries for their respective national teams, but it will be interesting to see if any of them get ready in time and if not, if them not playing will have a big effect on their team's performance.
