World Cup 2014: Football Manager developers predict the team of the tournament - but which England player makes it into the XI?

A possible best XI at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil
  • @JackdeMenezes

Lionel Messi will beat Cristiano Ronaldo, again. Luis Suarez will be overshadowed by his compatriot Edinson Cavani. And Leighton Baines will be the standout left-back of the summer.

Thanks to a little help from our friends at Football Manager, we select our predicted Dream Team of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. With stars ranging from Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and even England, the side certainly contains a few big guns that could very well go all the way and lift the famous trophy come July 13

Paul the Octopus was the star of the 2010 World Cup, but with the marine psychic sadly no longer with us, we've taken over the mantle of predicting who will star in the tournament. Who knows, the Telepathic Toucon of the Amazon could beat us to the punch by the time June comes around.
