Brazil World Cup 2014 Groups have been established and coaches are strategizing on how to get through to the second round.
In Group A, Brazil is the favorite as host on home advantage and as winner of the championship 5 times. Brazil having won at the Confederations Cup in the summer has brought on rumors of another World Cup 2014 adding the title to six.
Coach Luiz Felip Scolari took the team to its last World Cup glory in 2006. There’s a star man to look out for and he is Real Madrid’s Neymar. If he shines, Brazil World Cup 2014 groups should see some exciting action.
The closest Croatia came to winning the World Cup championship was in 1998, when the team seeded 3rd. Although this year’s squad may not be as good as the one in 1998, there is adequate talent for the team to advance with Bayern Munich’s Mandzukic and Real Madrid’s Luka Modric along with Niko Kranjcar, Nikica Jelavic and Eduardo. Coach Niko Kovac has a stalwart job of coordinating the team and keeping them engaged in the Brazil World Cup 2014 Groups.
Mexico is another potential winner in Group A. Mexico has put up a good fight throughout its World Cup history. Mexico’s tournament best was their entry into the quarter finals in 1970, 1986. with Miguel herrera coaching the team, their key star player is Javier Hernandez. they also have a blend of new stars and veterans who maintain the team’s stability with the thrust of their attack coming from Manchester U’s Hernandez. This is bound to present some problems for teams playing against Mexico. Historically, they have been consistent in the World Cup competitions.
