    Spain will win it. They have been quietly destroying teams recently. Iniesta's last tournement, they will walk it.
    There last 4 games have been two wins and two draws. Admittedly they were two big wins but one of those was against Costa Rica, and the other against a Messi-less Argentina. They’re one of those most complete teams though, I’ll give you that.

      Other: Russia.

      They'll have bribed enough to ensure it happens. Sorry, I mean they've come on leaps and bounds recently.
      You could be on to something here.

      They'll scrape through the group stage and be under massive pressure from the home support and Big Vlad.

      Round of 16: they pull off a narrow victory over Portugal after Cristiano Ronaldo announces his late withdrawal from the visitors' squad due to unsubstantiated rumours that his mother has mysteriously failed to arrive in Moscow as planned. Nobody knows where she is.

      Quarter final: Lionel Messi informs the world's media that he's taking Russian citizenship after a long and remarkably productive meeting with senior members of Putin's cabinet. Following a dull stalemate on the field, the match goes to penalties, where- at 4-4 and with one penalty each to go, Messi declares he cannot conscionably score against the Motherland and walks away, leaving the travelling Argentinian support aghast. Staggered, the rest of his side walk off in protest. FIFA award the game to Russia.

      Semi final: The Germans are, as always, in confident mood following their penalty shoot out victory over England in the quarter final. Confident, that is, until the team of officials, all from Uzbekistan, proceed to award a record-breaking four penalties in nine astonishing first half minutes to the hosts. The Teutonic titans fight back from their half time deficit to make it 4-3 with ten minutes to go, and subsequently have the ball in the Russian net six times, all ruled offside by the Uzbek linesman. FIFA officials seeking an explanation after the game are entirely unable to locate the officials, who are reportedly seen boarding the Trans-Siberian Express to Vladivostok, sat in the first class compartment, wearing new-looking fur coats and clutching small velvet bags with "24cts" stamped on the outside.

      Final: the seemingly unstoppable Brazilians are the last hurdle for the hometown heroes, and with their big names in top form, the smart money is on an honourable defeat. As the Samba stars sweep into a deserved early lead through Golden Boot winning phenomenon Neymar, fate looks to have finally thwarted the Russian Bear. Half time arrives with the Red Army two goals down and clinging on, when a small bearded man in a grey overcoat, dark glasses and clutching a furled umbrella is observed lingering around the Brazilian changing room door. What happened next is still uncertain, but the Selecao proceed to play the second half like they're in some kind of stupor. Have they been overawed by the occasion? Are they just exhausted from their efforts in reaching the final? Heavy-legged and seemingly unable to see beyond their own noses, Brazil find themselves overrun by the newly invigorated and very muscular Russian midfield, and concede five goals without reply. As the hosts celebrate their unexpected victory, their opponents slump on the field, overwhelmed with nausea and sweating profusely. Up in the stands, Vladimir Putin smiles benignly at Sepp Blatter, seated next to him in his new ambassadorial role for Russian football, and waves at his adoring public. Later, he expels twenty four foreign diplomats from Moscow as a precaution.
      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      Russia. They won't win really, but their fake news tweeters and facebookers will tell the workd that they did and we will never know the truth.

      I was going to say France, but I think they're due to have a massive falling out with players refusing to attend training or flying home.

      So, Germany.

      Brazil should make the final as their half should contain Portugal, France and Belgium, while the other should have Spain, Germany, Argentina and England.

      This is the first time I've wanted the ability to award more than one thumbs up.

      "...newly invigorated and very muscular..." great touch of colour there.


      Seriously though, you've heard the same rumour that I have.
