The World Cup is less than one month away and you can already feel the buzz growing as fans around the world start picking their favorite teams.
This year will be the first time an African nation will host the World Cup, which will be quite different for most players who are not used to such hot conditions. South Africa has been given a 78% chance of advancing to the knockout rounds, according to UBS and their mathematical calculations.
Matches are scheduled to take place in the following cities:
- Cape Town
- Port Elizabeth
Sadly, Beckham will not be a part of the games this year, as he injured his Achilles tendon, but he will be there in person to support his team. England’s current manager, Fabio Capello, is making last-minute changes to his formation and will consider switching to a 3-5-2 formation after Gareth Barry’s injury put the formerly successful 4-4-2 system into question. England share a predicted 4% chance of winning with Spain, the current European champs and bookie favorites.
The most likely winner is Brazil with a predicted 22% chance of claiming the World Cup title.
