I think Brazil have the greatest chance of winning the World Cup. They have a good formation and an extremely capable coach. The Samba Kings also have the talented Neymar along with a host of fantastic players.

Yes, they were held to a draw by Mexico, but I have faith in my team.

Though coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has left out past stars such as Ronaldinho, Kaka and Robinho, the five-time champions will feed off the energy that comes from being the host country. Being on home turf brings additional pressure, but this team will rise to the occasion.

For me, no one comes close to the Brazilians in terms of skills, performance, strength, game sense and agility. The roar of their fans in the stadiums would be deafening and scary for rivals.

Though Brazil is my favourite, Germany is a strong team as well. They have a world-class goalkeeper in Manuel Neuer. Personally, I prefer Spain's Iker Casillas, but he and his team have been shown the door.

The Germans are organised and have a very balanced side. Skipper Philipp Lahm will be confident.

Argentina have the most enviable forward line led by Lionel Messi. The two-time champions, however, will need the midfield and defence to come to the party.

The Italians, who have won the trophy four times, are always in with a chance. They have, however, engineered themselves into a position where they will have to slug it out against Uruguay to get out of the group stage.

All teams have a clutch of star players. All of them will play to win. I will go with Brazil all the way. A sixth World Cup win beckons my team.
