thumbnail Hello,

Cast your vote on who is going to achieve glory in football's biggest competition with the tournament in Brazil now only 12 months away

POLL

It is now exactly one year until World Cup 2014 kicks off in Brazil next summer and excitement is building fast ahead of the tournament.

The hosts have had mixed form under Luiz Felipe Scolari since he returned to the job, but you would still expect the five-time winners to be hard to beat on home soil.

Argentina, inspired by Barcelona star Lionel Messi, are also likely to be in the running if you think a South American side stands the best chance of triumphing.

Holders Spain are also being heavily tipped for glory. Having won Euro 2008, World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012, can Vicente del Bosque's side win an unparalleled fourth major trophy in succession?

Germany are expected to make it deep into the tournament, while Italy and Netherlands should also be threatening from the top collection of European sides.

Twelve months from the tournament, England and France are not amongst the fancied group of teams, but do they have the players to cause a surprise and go all the way in Brazil?

Or could there be another team who sends shockwaves around the world causing one of the biggest upsets in the competition's history next summer?
