It’s less than a year away. the biggest event in football. The world cup. Will world champions Spain retain their status or is it another country’s time?
After the Confed cup thrashing by Brazil, is it the end of tika-taka era? I don’t think so. I’ve read that people think Spain have lost their touch when in fact that’s nowhere near the truth. they’re still one of the best national sides of all time, winning 3 back to back titles and doing it in some style. when the won the world cup back in 2010 that goal is one of the sweetest strikes I have even seen by Iniesta. Or when they humiliated Italy by beating them 4-0, a team that looked one of the most solid teams in the tournament.
I think Brazil will the World Cup. This is why;
- David Luiz
As the host nation, they already have the upper-hand of home soil and of course they have the wonder kid that is Neymar Da silva Santos Jr. before the Confed cup I used to think of him as this over rated kid from Brazil who could only perform on Youtube but after seeing him play for Brazil he is starting to justify his £49 million move to Barcalona. In the opening match of the Confed cup he scored one of the best goals of the competition with a fantastic volley against Japan. Now that he is playing in Europe, Neymar can excel and become one of the best players in the world. Brazil have one of the best counter attacks in football, with players like Oscar who can pick a pass second to none and the blistering pace of Neymar and Lucas Moura. Let me talk about Lucas briefly. Lucas is a right-winger who went to PSG in the winter transfer window from São Paulo for a reported €45m. Although he hasn’t scored a goal for PSG yet he has a couple of assists and is playing well. Defence is where Brazil need improvement in. As in the Confed cup, their full backs (Marcelo and Dani Alves) would push forward and stay up front, leaving huge gaps in defence leaving only Thiago Silva and David Luiz to defend against attacks.
But as a whole, I am fully pumped for the world cup. It brings a nation together to see your country prosper and succeed. I believe this World cup will be even better than last as In my opinion, there are more teams that could win such as Spain, Brazil, France, taly and The Netherlands.
