Brazil?s my team: Jayanta Talukdar

Being a native of Assam, I am crazy about football - and with the World Cup just a few days away, I'm really looking forward to the grand spectacle in Germany.
However, with a whole lot of tournaments lined up in June and July, it will be pretty difficult for me to catch all the action. I'm a huge fan of Brazil, like most people I know, and hope they win it this time around too. With the likes of Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Kaka and Adriano in their team, it is no surprise that they are the overwhelming favourites.
The only fear the Samba Boys might have is that whenever they've been the favourites to win the World Cup, someone else has beaten them to the title.
The Brazilians always delight with their stylish game and I hope this time around too, they would entertain their way to the finish line. The proverbial chink in Brazil's armour has been their leaky defence. That could well change at this World Cup.
