A list of what country will win the 2014 World Cup. It is the most watched event in the world, and is considered the world's game. The top 32 countries from across the globe will descend upon Brazil to compete for what's considered one of the most prestigious trophies in the world. The best footballing countries in the world aim to leave Brazil with the distinction of being called World Cup winners, bringing prestige and honor to their respective countries, and coming home as conquering heroes (unless Brazil wins, then it won't be going anywhere).

Just ask Spain what it meant when their players took home the 2010 trophy, the first in its history. People lined the streets of Madrid reveling in the glory and celebrating the tournament victory. This year, the tournament has its usual share of haves, have-nots, and every country in between. And yes, there is the dreaded Group of Death, which includes (by FIFA ranking), Germany (no. 2 in the world), Portugal (no. 5), the United States of America (no. 14) and Ghana (no. 24). These countries won't have an easy path to advance to the knockout stages.

The usual suspects are in this year's World Cup: Argentina, Italy, England, and the Netherlands are considered contenders to win the world's greatest tournament. There could be a few upsets, but that seems to be unlikely.

So what country will win the 2014 World Cup? We won't know that answer until July 13, but hey, why not vote and voice your take on which team you think is most likely to take home the 2014 World Cup.
