So here at ThisDrinkingLife we have written a short piece on all 32 participating nations and giving the lowdown on how they will do. So if you follow our advice you are bound to get a winner or two down the bookies, no doubt about it!
We are going for Spain to win the overall thing. They easily have the best squad, and have actually improved it slightly since the last world cup. The last four should contain Spain, Portugal, Germany and England. What? No Brazil or Argentina yet England!? Yes! Brazil wont win anything, they don’t have the squad to do it, while Argentina rely too heavily on Messi and Aguerro in a very rigid setup. And England? I expect Sturridge to fire them to the Semi’s
