    The ball
    [​IMG]
    Adidas have spent 2½ testing the ball that will be used at the World Cup finals and enlisted the help of Lionel Messi and others to test it

    The product of a two-and-half-year testing process involving some of the world’s biggest stars, Adidas on Tuesday night unveiled the Brazuca, the official match ball for next summer’s World Cup.

    Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Lionel Messi and Iker Casillas were involved in the development of the ball, whose six identical panels, alongside a new surface structure will, according to adidas, provide “improved grip, touch, stability and aerodynamics”. The makers say it is the most tested Adidas ball of all time.

    Dani Alves, Barcelona’s Brazilian star, said: “My first impression of the Brazuca is of a ball that is fantastic and we are going to have a lot of fun with it. adidas has crfeated an incredible-looking ball fitting for a tournament as big as the Fifa World Cup. Most importantly, it plays well on the ground and in the air. I’m sure all the players will love it.”

    The technology incorporated into the bladder and carcass of Brazuca is the same as that used in the Tango 12 (the Euro 2012 match ball), Cafisa (2013 Confederations Cup) and the Champions League match ball but the panels and surface structure are new developments

    Besides the video cam at the goal refs will also spray paint whenever a free kick must be taken

    Comparing this world cup to some earlier competitions from back in 2002 or 2006 this one will be a bit dissapointing in my opinion.....

    If I was to go I would try and blend in like a locale, no nice clothes or jerseys & perhaps a rape whistle.

    I'm actually thinking England could be decent this year. The form of some players is really good. Sturridge, Rooney, Sterling, Hart, Glen Johnson, Welbeck, Shaw, Lallana, Gerrard... It does look good. That is until Hodgson decides to take gramps like Lamps, Terry, Ashley Cole... hope he leaves them at home. Give the youngsters in form a chance.

    I think England should just play younger kids who are hungry for it. Lets be honest they wont win it but at least all those younger players will get experience and know whats it like to play at world cup. He should definitely play Sturridge and Sterling.

    Getting excited now!!!

    For me Brazil, Argentina, Germany and Spain are the favourites.

    Belgium is probably the team that can create havoc in this WC, because they have a great team.

    As for my country, Portugal, i´m expecting a decent WC, nothing more.

    I just hope i can see some decent games in this WC, because the last games i´ve watched have been complete crap...
