I think it will be a toss up between Spain and Brazil.
Spain have arguably the best team on paper and having shed their big stage chokers tag at the Euro's i can expect them to be among the favorites to win the whole thing.
Brazil have a very good squad and the world cup winners mentality. Plus their defence (a known past weakness of theirs) seems to be a lot more solid this year with Lucio in great form and then ofcourse Maicon who is powerful and has an attacking instinct. I can see him being extremely important to the team in this tournament.
I will be supporting England and i do think they will do very well in SA because they finally have a great coach who cracks the whip when needed but given their past history on the big stage , i wont go so far as to predict them as favorites.
Ditto for the dutch - great squad but past chokers.
Argentina also have a very very solid squad but they still havent clicked as a team, barely qualified and are managed by an inexperienced head case.
