Nobody in here has picked Spain as the winner? What is wrong with you guys? Pretty much 90% of them play for either Real Madrid or Barcelona. Their deck is stacked. That tiki taka aint no joke. Their whole team act as one solid organic unit. They are the tacticians of the league. All of them are pretty much star players.

Spain didn't win the Confederations Cup last year, and won't win the World Cup this year.

Brazil will win, because, you know, bananas have a high level of potassium, and give much energy for professional players.

I'd think it will be interesting how teams will play against Spain. Some systems are good but nevertheless each one has flaws that can be taken advantage of. I'd be surprised if they let Spain play it full out. Anyway if you're a good offensive team and pass the ball well you can put a stamp on the game against any team regardless of the system they play. All good teams always try to mold how the game goes their way.

Only 37 goals in 83 appearances for Argentina

Messi is a great player but Brazilian Ronaldo & Zidane were better.
