Anna's World Cup Predictions

I tried really hard not to answer "Italy" or "Tim Ream" for all of these. You're welcome.

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

Winners - Brazil (Sigh, my heart says Italy.)

Second Place - Germany

Semi Finalists - Spain, Netherlands

Golden Ball Winner - Everyone's saying Neymar and with him playing the World Cup AT HOME, if he doesn't get it, I'll secretly ridicule him in my mind (and on my twitter).

Top Goal Scorer - Miroslav Klose (Germany)

Golden Glove Winner - Iker Casillas (Spain)

Best Young player - Marco Verratti (Italy). If not him, then I'm excited to see what Paul Pogba (France) has in store for us.

Teams Who Might Surprise Us - United States (even without Tim Ream), Ivory Coast, Belgium.

Fifa Fair Play Trophy - I want something moving here. Maybe to Bosnia and Herzegovina after the Balkan floods? South Korea after the ferry disaster? Not giving one in remembrance of the Malaysian plane? Something that shows football is so much more than just a game.

Where Will England Finish? - I'm hoping the team will make it out of the group. As expectations seem to be ridiculously low, anything other than that would probably be a welcomed bonus.

England's Top Goal Scorer - Is there any other choice besides Daniel Sturridge?!

Bonus Ball: A repeat of this 1962 moment, please?
