On June 11, the most awaited event worldwide will begin. The best teams in the world will gather for a show full of talent and the World Cup Odds lean toward countries that have made history since Uruguay 1930.
Great teams like Brazil have demonstrated the ability of its players, and their great potential make Brazil the country with the most World Cup titles. In 1958, the Brazilians won their first title in a World Cup, a victory that they repeated four years later in Chile.
Brazil has reached the finals on 7 occasions, winning the title in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002.
With historical players like Pele, Brazil marked its path in tournaments and has managed to remain a favorite in the World Cups. Pele is the Brazilian team’s leading scorer and made four appearances in World Cups, with Brazil winning the Championship title in three of them.
The current world champion, Italy, enters as a strong favorite to win the World Cup in South Africa. With three draws and no defeats, the “Azzurri” ranked first in the rankings, losing only 6 points. In the next stage, Italy will face Paraguay, New Zealand and Slovakia, and the Italians can be considered as the strongest team to advance to the next round without much trouble.
Italy has been in six World Cup finals, having won four of them, with their last one in Germany 2006.
In a group where all four countries ranked in the top of their groups, I think that Germany ranks as the biggest team to be faced in games against Australia, Serbia and Ghana. With three World Cups, the Germans have the World Cup experience to put them as favorites, which can also lead them very far in South Africa 2010.
Germany has won three World Cup titles in their seven participations in the biggest soccer event around the world. (Bayern players: Lahm, Sweinsteiger, Klose, etc.)
Our other players: Holland – Robben, van Bommel; France – Ribery; etc.
