So yesterday my esteemed colleague @Murbroski penned his World Cup predictions. Never knowingly outdone, I thought I would offer my own - comments below the line welcome:
Winners - Germany
Second Place - Brazil
Semi Finalists - Spain, Netherlands
Golden Ball Winner - Mario Gotze (Germany)
Top Goal Scorer - Miroslav Klose (Germany)
Golden Glove Winner - Manuel Neuer (Germany)
Best Young player - Danny Welb....nah Neymar (Brazil)
Teams Who Might Surprise Us - Ivory Coast, Bosnia and USA
Fifa Fair Play Trophy - Brazil
Where Will England Finish? - I think we'll get out of our group, but that's about it.
England's Top Goal Scorer - Has to be Daniel Sturridge
Bonus Ball: Cristiano Ronaldo to whip his shirt off at any given opportunity.
I love the World Cup. Bring it on.
We'll be offering coverage of the tournament via these very pages with focus and insight into the daily happenings at the world's biggest football competition.
