It’s just one week before the talking stops and 32 nations touch down in Brazil for a four-week battle to see who is the best footballing nation on the planet.
And what a mouth-watering month we have in store, where countless questions will be answered. Will Brazil be able to cope with home nation pressure? Will Uruguay or Argentina upset the carnival? How will current holders Spain fare? Will Roy’s young pups defy the odds and go all the way?
To celebrate this festival of football, Financial Adviser and FTAdviser have teamed up with Threadneedle Investments to offer readers the chance to pick from the cream of footballing talent on display.
Already more than 1,600 financial advisers have registered for the game with Yaya Toure, Edin Hazard, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez all proving popular, although Suarez fans might need to revisit their decision with him laid up in bed nursing his knee.
