Viva l'Italia! With coach Prandelli, I put all my eggs in their basket! The best thing that ever happened to Italia was to finally attack! The only problem is they showed in the Euro 2012 that their attacking style demands high energy which left them depleted in the final they should've won, though they had 1 day less to rest than Spain. Now add humidity and that may cancel the advantage of most of their players not having gone far in the Champion's League and being rested.
My bet is in Italia! But as Snowdog said, European teams rarely win in the hot humid countries outside Europe. In fact Spain are the only European team to ever win the World Cup off of European soil (South Africa in 2010).
I'd hate to see Brazil win it again but they were impressive at the Confederation's Cup last summer by destroying lacklustre Spain....I love Spain's scintillating performances but I think they are done. I wouldn't mind Argentina winning. Last year, I thought Germany might win the World Cup but I just don't feel it anymore. I'm still upset with Suarez cheating and ultimately eliminate promising Ghana in 2010. I used to like England when Michael Owen was around.
I'm so excited!! It's insane! I subsribe to cable 1 month every 2 years just for Euro and World Cup. Great times ahead!
