One does not simply rank the World Cup teams. There are a lot of things to consider besides the probability to win. The players, the skills, and the fans are just some of the things that must be put into serious consideration. There are countless websites online that tried to rank the teams, and it is easy to disagree with the list. So, let us just agree to disagree on a list made by Jonathan Liew of Telegraph.

Here is his list of top 10 World Cup teams:

  1. Columbia. Perhaps one of the most formidable teams in the tournament winning four matches quite strategically. It has been a long time since this team has played in the tournament. One of its most significant advantages is James Rodriguez who may get the Golden Boot award.
  2. Chile. The team has fallen out of the tournament, but they have proven themselves as one of the best teams in the World Cup. They clearly executed their strategies quite well during their matches, making them one of the most entertaining teams in the tournament.
  3. Algeria. This team is also very entertaining and sensational as they handle the ball in a breeze. The team, however, lost against Germany.
  4. Costa Rica. Italy and Uruguay are strong teams, and Costa Rica didn’t just defeat these teams, they defeated them with such passion and style. They also revealed a different side when they defeated Greece on penalties.
  5. USA. This is a foreign game to the US citizens, but they gave such a wonderful performance, with the whole nation backing them up like they know what’s going on. They got defeated by Belgium though, just right on time for the team to go back home and celebrate the 4th of July.
  6. Netherlands. After clobbering Spain 5-1, everybody wants to see what they can do next. Costa Rica, better watch out.
  7. France. Viva La France. Even without Zidane, this team just won’t stop scoring goals.
  8. Mexico. Fans know what Mexico is capable of; they just won’t be able to witness it after Netherlands defeated the team.
  9. Germany. It seems like fans are just waiting for Thomas Müller to score like it is a normal thing.
  10. Brazil. They said it’s their birth right to win the World Cup, and it seems like it’s up to Neymar da Silva to prove that.
