It’s been a frosty time for Brazil with many not wanting the World Cup to be held in their country. But you just watch the change when the tournament begins and the football starts rolling.

4207331 (1)This is a country that lives and breathes football – it’s a way of life. From the moment the World Cup hosts kick-off v Croatia on Thursday night there will be a carnival atmosphere.

I’m fully expecting Brazil to set off to a flying start too. Yes, they stuttered in their most recent friendly, but the pre-tournament match is always a strange one – no-one wants to get hurt.

This is the moment Brazil’s players, and more specifically Neymar, has been waiting for. The Barcelona man is ready to take this World Cup by storm and prove his class.

Don’t expect any holding back from him when it comes to wanting to thrill the crowd. That’s when he’s at his best too – he’s an entertainer.

Elsewhere, Brazil are fired up to succeed and Luis Felipe Scolari has a strong squad to choose from. He’s largely going with the men that won the Confederations Cup last year – a great warm-up for this summer.

So, if you don’t think you’ve seen the true World Cup spirit in Brazil yet – tune in on Thursday night to see what an incredible atmosphere. Expect goals too and a real statement from Neymar and co.

Welbeck injury a blessing in disguise

There’s reports that Danny Welbeck is injured and will miss the clash v Italy this weekend. For England, this could end being a blessing in disguise.

It could mean Raheem Sterling is the man to step in. This would be fantastic for Roy Hodgson’s men and how they attacking the Italians. Let’s unleash one of our brightest talents.

Sterling played some of his best football for Liverpool in the early stages of matches last season. He hit opposition defences at 100mph from the word go. Let’s do that to Italy!

Whatever happens – the waiting is almost over, so take it all in!
