Brazil World Cup 2014 schedule is about to start with the first game – Brazil vs. Croatia on June 12 and the inauguration game will be played in Sao Paolo, home to the Corinthians football club.
With the friendlies in the Brazil World Cup 2014 schedule coming to a close, the opening fixtures are slated to begin. Injuries are expected to be a problem during the World Cup 2014 schedules. But big teams like Germany might be able to whether a couple of players sitting on the sidelines, but that’s not true for some of the ‘dark horses.’ On the other hand, underdogs may have an advantage if someone like Neymar or Messi take a fall for several games.
Many teams are struggling since their qualification into the Brazil World Cup 2014 schedule, and the tournament is turning out to be a very competitive ‘dribble-game’ for the teams. It might just be one of the most competitive World Cups in history. We’ll have to wait and see how that play’s out.
