    I think it makes sense to officially kick off a World Cup 2014 thread with Nike's big commercial:

    Good commercial not as good as the 2010 one though.

    Should be a fun world cup.

    Yeah, the 2010 ones were really good. I liked the 08 ones too. Nike has always produced good ones. The tournament in 02 and the Joga Bonito vids in 06 were fun. So were the Adidas ones from 06.

    But the original...


    The true Ronaldo.

    If Destro doesn't get called up, I'll probably root Greece. I'm German Italian but I can't put myself up to rooting for a team Juve or team Bayern in disguise

    Heh. Liked the cameos of Jon Jones and Anderson Silva in the Nike video.

    I know it's early days yet but what's the general consensus in terms of a WC winner this year, Who are you picking?

    My early prediction is Argentina.

    Without defense nope. I wouldn't be surprised if Brazil pull it off.

    Germany just has this "Golden Generation" feeling about them - like they are going to go on a tear like Spain for the next 2-3 tournaments. So I am going with Germany.

    I wouldn't dispute the Brazil call.

    The Argentina 'crap defence' stereotype gets a bit used far too much in my opinion though. They are actually a more solid unit under Sabella.

    definitely a lot of hype about Germany about this WC but I think they'll get to the semi's.

    They definitely have the quality but Loew has arguably failed in 2 tournaments already so I don't think he's the man to steer them to the title.

    Since Germany won it first they have always at least made the quarter finals! They don't have enough upfront imo.

    Brazil looked great last year and at home worthy favs. Its going to be much better than 2010 at least.

    Wait to see Italy's team before making my mind up on them.

    Interesting to see smaller nations like Uruguay, Colombia and Chile get on. Biggest flop for me will be Holland

    No European team has ever won outside of Europe. Brazil is the only country to have ever won outside of South America.

    I'm going to go with a South American team.

    Demichelis hasn't played for Argentina since 2011.

    Also, Belgium shouldn't even be in that scale you made at the bottom of your post. Belgium are a quality side in Fifa 14 but not in real life !

    This stat is the most useless that's gets repeatly said when a world cup rolls around. Its sample size is so small its not worth considering as a serious point
