Image The Mexico national football team represents Mexico in association football and is governed by the Mexican Football Federation (FMF), the governing body for football in Mexico. Mexico's home stadium is the Estadio Azteca and their head coach is Miguel Herrera. The team is currently ranked 24 in the FIFA World Rankings and 24 in the World Football Elo Ratings.
Mexico has qualified for fourteen World Cups and has qualified consecutively since 1994; Mexico played France in the very first match of the first World Cup on 13 July 1930. Mexico's best progression was reaching the Quarterfinals in both the 1970 and 1986 FIFA World Cups, both of which were staged on Mexican soil.
Mexico is historically the most successful national team in the CONCACAF region, as they are the only team from the region to win an official FIFA recognized title. They hold one FIFA Confederations Cup, nine CONCACAF championships, including six CONCACAF Gold Cups, one North American Nations Cup and three NAFC Championships.
Although Mexico is under the jurisdiction of CONCACAF, the national football team has been regularly invited to compete in the Copa América since Ecuador 1993 finishing as runner-up twice and obtaining the third place medal on three occasions.

Image The Uruguayan national football team represents Uruguay in international association football and is controlled by the Uruguayan Football Association, the governing body for football in Uruguay. The current head coach is Óscar Tabárez. The Uruguayan side is commonly referred to as La Celeste (The Sky Blue [One]) or Charrúas.
Uruguay are the current reigning South American champions, having won the 2011 Copa América. Uruguay have won the Copa América a record 15 times. The team has twice won the FIFA World Cup, including the first World Cup in 1930 as hosts, defeating Argentina 4–2 in the final. They won their second title in 1950, upsetting hosts Brazil 2–1 in the final match, which received an attendance higher than any football match ever.
They have won the Gold Medals in football at the Summer Olympics twice, in 1924 and 1928, before the creation of the World Cup. Uruguay also won the 1980 Mundialito, a tournament among former World Cup champions. In total, Uruguay have won 20 official titles, a world record for the most international titles held by any country.
Their success is amplified by the fact that the nation has a very small population of around 3.25 million inhabitants (2011 est.). Uruguay is by far the smallest country in the world to have won a World Cup in terms of population, 1.75 million inhabitants in 1930. The second smallest country, by population, to have won the World Cup is Argentina with a population of nearly 28 million people in 1978. Uruguay is also the smallest country ever to win any World Cup medals; only five nations with a currently smaller population than Uruguay's have ever participated in any World Cup: Northern Ireland (3 times), Slovenia (twice), Wales, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago. Uruguay is also the smallest nation to win Olympic gold medals in any team sport.

Very interesting analysis. I think this is the World Cup champion is really difficult to predict. I think I'll wait here. Exciting duel on the Confederations Cup, the World Cup is still hope to see. I bought here in Brazil, Spain and many other countries football shirt from www.tshirtinuk.com . I have so many pieces inside. Should have a become a champion. I think.

Watched the last 20minutes of the first half between Brazil and Croatia (cant watch entire game cause I'll be going out very soon)

Brazil being very patient with the ball. But can instantly up the tempo when they detect a crack in the backline.
Not only that, they can also be quite relentless with a number of through ball attempts into wide attacking positions, most of which have been defended superbly by Croatia.
Result of Neymar's hit came from one of Croatia's high pressing moments, where Brazil maintained possession and quickly send man up the middle into the attacking third.

Croatia's playstyle leans more towards containment rather than looking to counter attack. Although they had a number of attempts to try to catch Brazil on the backfoot and get a score against the run of play.

I expect Brazil to continue their surge and win the game 2-1. But I also would not be surprised to return home and see the final result as 3-1, 4-1 in favor of Brazil

Btw,
I have Italy over Argentina in the finals along with Spain and Brazil in the semi finals

Image SAO PAULO, BRAZIL — The opening match of the World Cup, a 3-1 victory by Brazil over Croatia on Thursday night in front of a yellow-splashed sellout crowd at Arena de Sao Paulo, was decided by Neymar’s two goals and Oscar’s excellence, by Thiago Silva’s defensive work and Julio Cesar’s late save.

Croatia Coach Niko Kovac would add another name to the list: Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura, whose suspect call led to Neymar’s go-ahead penalty kick in the 71st minute.

Image Carrying over his prolific form this season for Barcelona, Sanchez scored one goal and set up another to lead Chile to a 3-1 win over Australia in stifling conditions in Cuiaba on Friday.

It was a patchy but ultimately satisfying opening performance in Group B for the Chileans, who are dangerous outsiders in Brazil after their impressive run of results over the past 18 months.
