The biggest sporting event of 2010 , FIFA Football World Cup, has begun in South Africa. It will take some time before the dust of inaugural ceremony settles down and team positions stabilizes in respective groups. Haze will only start clearing in quarter final matches and picture will become somewhat clear on finalization of semifinal lineup. Making a guess about the winner even at that stage will be hazardous because there will be very thin line difference between the top four teams. But it is human to guess and let us indulge.

One must take in to account the availability of players, performance during the last one year, current form, strength & weakness as a team and record in past world cups before guessing & arriving at final four.
