Can an non-South American team lift the trophy in Brazil? Only 3 teams have ever won the World cup outside of their continent - Brazil (Sweden 1958, Mexico 1970, USA 1994, Korea/Japan 2002), Argentina (Mexico 1986), and Spain (South Africa 2010).
The World Cup Golden Boot does not always necessarily go to a player from the winning team. It all depends on which teams have favourable draws in the group stages.
For example, what if Portugal score a load of goals against Ghana in the group stages and Ronaldo bags 4?
England go into another World Cup not on the best form and even the English Football Association are playing down their chances and looking ahead to future tournaments.
A South American tournament will be tough for England with the heat and the South American passing style of football, but with some bright, talented young players you never know, could England surprise?
The World Cup kicks off on June 12th, 2014 and runs for 1 month until the World Cup Final at the Maracana Stadium, in Rio de Janeiro on July 13th, 2014.
Game kick off times vary - group stage games kick off between 13:00 and 19:00 local time (17:00 and 23:00 GMT) meaning that most of Europe and Africa will be able to enjoy the games live during the evening, whereas for viewers in Asia the games will take place during the night.

Some notable teams that are outside of this top 8, and will therefore face the above teams are Holland, England and Italy.
