WE'VE now seen all 32 teams in action at Brazil 2014 and it's been a case of the good, bad and the ugly.
European teams have been the best performers and there's every chance of a first win on South American soil with Germany and Holland the most likely of the top guns.
Brazil and Argentina will have something to say about that but neither have hit the heights yet.
Having watched just about every game I'm updating my thoughts about the winner, finalists and top scorer. And I'm offering a £10 free bet with Ladbrokes to anyone who can name the finalists today. This contest closes before the Holland v Australia match at 5pm.
Simply post your choice of finalists as a comment at the end of this article and quote Ladbrokes odds. I'll check the thread after the semi-finals and one correct entry will be picked out at random.
At the start of the tournament I said the winner would come from Brazil, Argentina or Germany so for now it's the Germans for me having put money on Argentina but not the hosts.
My top scorer was a choice between Neymar and Lionel Messi and both are off the mark but I'd love to be on Thomas Muller and Robin van Persie and fancy antepost prices.
So who have been the good (or great), the bad (or okay) and the ugly (or just rubbish) so far. At the moment I'd say the winner will come from the good teams but not Costa Rica, Mexico or England so that leaves four Europeans plus Colombia who could be the dark horses.
Good – Mexico, Holland, Colombia, Costa Rica, Italy, England, France, Germany.
Bad – Brazil, Croatia, Chile, Australia, Ivory Coast, Japan, Switzerland, Argentina, Bosnia-Herz, USA, Belgium, Algeria.
Ugly – Cameroon, Spain, Greece, Uruguay, Ecuador, Honduras, Iran, Nigeria, Portugal, Ghana, Russia, South Korea.
So comment here with your finalists and if you like tell me who your top eight teams have been so far.
