“Brazil always has a very good team and this World Cup will be held in their home. Under the leadership of Philipe Scolari, I believe they will make it this time.”




Daniel Hopkins

“I think Brazil will win the World Cup because I can’t go against the home country fairy tale.”




Richard Carrington


Arsenal fan


“France will win. They’re the dark horse, they’ve got a very good squad, there is no pressure on them and they’ve dropped one of their best players — Sami Nasri — who would have caused problems in the squad. Brazil are under too much pressure.”




Lee Dunton


Joint owner of Vinyl Bar


“My favourite to win is Brazil. However, I can’t rule out the Italians and the Germans. If I was an outside better I would put my money on Mexico or Argentina. However, being patriotic, England may have a chance if they can get out of the qualifying stages.”

“It’s got to be Bosnia and Herzegovina. They’ll have 22 players on the field while all the other countries will only have 11.”




Tomas Werner

“I think Brazil, then Germany, but USA has also a very strong team, too. So let’s see!”
