Within a few months, the 2014 World Cup will kick-off with the powerful World soccer squads. For instance, Brazil, as a host nation, will play on home soil, where they are deemed to be favorites to win the World Cup.
So far, Brazil had never won the World Cup playing on home soil. Will or can they, however, triumph over the Cup in 2014?
To respond to this question, one has to hesitate giving a clear answer because of the rarity that it has not happened rampantly in the history of the game, especially at World Cup level.
To win the Confederations on home soil, in effect, is different from the World Cup in that there are more strong squads to defeat in order to get to either a decisive quarterfinal or a semi-final.
In addition, German shined over the World Cup on home ground in 1974, as well France in 1998. While home soil may have the advantage of fans screaming to prod the players, it takes a determined squad with pure skippers to clinch a World Cup. To this reality, the German squad had been the magnificent finalists in the football world, and Germany may stun Brazil on home soil, not over-passing the Netherlands squad who played the 2010 final with Spain!
Other than this argument, there is a sudden relegation in World FIFA Ranking for Germany, which does not nullify the fact that Germany can perform to the level to win the Cup [in the same way Brazil crushed Spain in the Confederations being in 22nd spot]. Apart from this point, can Argentina, who are in 2nd spot ranking, roam to either a tough quarterfinal or a semi-final on Brazil's home ground?
To conclude this argument about winning on home soil, I have to suggest that there will a fierce contention in the World Cup, where one must watch for Netherlands and Germany to shine up to the semi-finals or be crowned the plausible 2014 World Cup winner!
