Belgium's not gonna happen :S ... I voted Spain because that's what I expect. They haven't been that great lately, but they weren't either in 2012 and the totally destroyed Italy in the final. Brazil... Meh, I don't know... I don't think they'll pull it off. Argentina will probably fail. I don't expect much from Portugal, Italy and The Netherlands, France might surprise but ultimately they lack ze quality. Germany also have a great squad (they do have a striker issue though). Looking forward to seeing teams like Colombia, Chile, Uruguay and Japan in action.
But I chose Spain because they know how to win this.

I feel that this will be the last great World Cup. International football has become a laughing stock since the Qatar farce and this imo will be the swan song of World Cup football. Fitting that its in Brazil.

I originally said Germany is going to win, but I'm going with Brazil now

(If Brazil and Germany meet in the semi-finals, then Brazil will go on to win it.
If Brazil and Germany meet in the finals, Germany will win after penalty shootout)

Home advantage will play a big part though. They won the confederation cup easily last year too.
