Brazil World Cup 2014 groups have placed Spain, Holland, Chile and Autralia into Group A.
Starting with Spain, their key striker is Andres Iniesta and they have tasted victory in the last World Cup 2010. They are bound to be hungry for more trophies, so you can expect Spain to put a formidable challenge.
The telegraph reports, “Having enjoyed the best spell in their country’s history there is a sense that Spain are not as strong as they once were as their golden generation loses some of its lustre. However, that does not mean the depth of their talent should be underestimated as the likes of Roberto Soldado, Alvaro Negredo, Jesus Navas and Michu have added new impetus while the quality of Iniesta, David Silva and Xavi remains.”
Holland is another team that remains a threat to teams in their goup and their runners- up performance in 1978 against Argentina was absolutely sensational with stars like Johann Cryuff. That was probably the height of Holland’s talent.
Their star man is Robin van Persie while coach Louis van Gaal makes attempts to guide them to victory. They got a rough call at Euro 2012 and now reports say that if the team can control their egos, they might do better. Nonetheless, there is very little chance Holland will make a comeback onto the finals.
Both Chile and Australia are underdogs in this goup and it’s unlikely they will take home the Brazil World Cup 2014.
