One to watch – Neymar

The world’s most expensive footballer had been in scintillating form before his injury a few weeks ago. The darling of Brazillian football now faces a race to be fit for the World Cup.

On his day he is up there with the likes of Messi and Ronaldo as one of the world’s best footballer. A natural entertainer, we are hoping for all of our sakes that he can get fit in time for the tournament.

Reasons to worry –  Brazil’s record in Europe

European World Cups tend to be won by a European side. Brazil’s only success on the continent was all the way back in Sweden in 1958. This trend will need to change.

FMF’s prediction

Quarter finals.
