Italy: The Dark Horse of the World Cup, Italy remains to be the side to watch out for in the tournament. Cesare Prandelli would like his side to win the coveted trophy for their inspiring captain Gianluigi Buffon and Andrea Pirlo, who are likely making their last world cup appearance. Four times world cup winning champions, Italy also boast of young talents like Marco Verratti and Mario Balotelli.
Uruguay: Ranked seventh, Uruguay has high hopes at the FIFA World Cup 2014. Twice world cup winners in 1930 and 1950 respectively, Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez would be keen to get his side back in the running back for the World Cup trophy. Placing safe bets on strikers Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, Uruguay would look forward to ensuring a great run at the World Cup. They should be motivated by the status Giants of Football once given to them a few decades back.
