This year is the 20th hosting of the FIFA World Cup. England is generally credited with inventing the beautiful game of football, however, such is the Brazilians prowess that it is often said that they 'perfected the game'. Only 8 nations have ever lifted the most prestigious football trophy. The 5 stars on the Brazil soccer jersey are due to their wins in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002.

The last time Brasil hosted the FIFA World Cup was in 1950. Many nations secure a win with the advantage of playing on home soil; however, this was not the case for Brazil in 1950. In this year the final was decided by a group of 4 teams. The final group match was between Brazil and Uruguay. Uruguay won 2-1 denying the team wearing the Brazil soccer jersey the opportunity to lift the trophy on home soil.

As the host nation Brazil has avoided the qualifying process and was automatically placed as the top team in Group A for the 1st stage. Their opening stage games will be against fellow Group A teams Mexico, Croatia and Cameroon. The players wearing the Brazil soccer jersey are favorites to win and lift the trophy, and they are certainly favored to finish top of their group.

Luiz Felipe Scolari is the manager of the Brazil nation team. He is a Brazilian national and this is his 2nd spell as manager of his national side. His previous stint as manager was 2001 - 2002. In 2002 he led the team to win their 5th World Cup trophy, adding the all-important 5th star to the Brazil soccer jersey. He returned as the team's manager in 2012 and has clearly stated that his only objective is to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brasil.

Brazil has been the bookmaker's favorite from the outset. The prelude to the World Cup, the confederations cup was held in Brazil in the summer of 2013. Brazil was the reigning champion and their performance didn't disappoint. The Brasil team won every match and retained their title as competition winners. Their great Confederations Cup performance further cemented their position as favorite.

Argentina, Germany and current holders Spain are other top picks but Scolari is unlikely to let the opportunity of lifting the World Cup on home soil slip away. Scolari will soon be announcing his chosen squad that will be kitted out with jerseys and the Brazil soccer jacket to demonstrate how to play the beautiful game to perfection! But can they win? Only time will tell!
