Brazil World Cup Schedule

There are still some qualifying games left before the 2014 Brazil World Cup schedule is complete, but some teams have already claimed their spot in the World Cup. Among those teams is the Netherlands, Italy, and Team USA.

A rocky start to international play has turned into a wonderful stretch for the Americans. Surprisingly the opposite can be said for North American counterpart Mexico. Team Mexico is on the verge of elimination and faces the first World Cup absence since the nation was banned from competition in 1990. Team USA now appears to be the strongest representative from North America. Jurgen Klinsmann has the Americans playing better than ever and it would be nice to see them make a legitimate run in the 2014 World Cup.

In light of the recent Team USA World Cup qualification, I have prepared a look at the World Cup schedule as the tournament in Brazil grows closer to a reality. Please note that we do not know where each team will be playing yet. That information will become available after the World Cup draw in December. The one thing we do know is that Team Brazil should be A1 and will play the opening match in Sao Paulo.

Congrats to the teams who have already qualified and are now examining this World Cup schedule. Is it too much to ask for Team USA to make the final in Rio? Perhaps but go big or go home right?

I don't know about you but I'm getting excited just talking about the World Cup! I will be one of the millions anxiously waiting to hear where each team will be playing and who their group opponents will be.

Who do you think is the favorite to win the 2014 Brazil World Cup?
