So if you are crazy World Cup fan, then you should have definitely tried World Cup Betting and Spain is a preferable choice.

The Spanish team won the UEFA European Championship in 2008 and topped the world ranking in 2008. They have qualified the World Cup 12 times and have an undefeated record from November 2006 and June 2009. In the 1950 tournament Spain stood at the fourth place. This was an indication that this wonderful team has a lot more to go. The winning of European Nation's Cup in 1964 was a promise by the team to all the football nations that they will definitely hold theWorld Cup trophy once for sure.

The team is now in the second position in world ranking and many prefer this team on World Cup Betting because of the recent undefeated performance by the team. This record of winning 35 matches consecutively is shared by the World Champion Brazil, out of which 2 matches ended in draw. This record was the highest record by Spain with 73 goals and not allowing more than one goal from the opponent team. Now the team has qualified in the 2010World Cup by a royal win against Estonia. In the qualifying tournament they have proved themselves as an unbeatable team winning all the 10 matches. The traditional team jersey is a red with yellow trim and blue shorts. Now the team will face the 2010 World Cup in their light red jersey and light blue shorts and red socks. The red color indicates the team name 'Red Fury'. This wonderful kit is designed by the Adidas and has the emblem of the Spain's Coat of arms over the left chest.

The backbone of the team is that it has the world's best midfielder-Xavi whose ability to control the midfield is remarkable. In thisWorld Cup he will definitely be the best asset of his team. Another great player in the team is Fernando Torres who can strike goals from any position in the field. In spite of his poor performance in the Premiere League he will be the most expected goal scorer in the team.

It is a mystery that Spain hasn't been able to dominate the World Cup in spite of the talent. The team is equipped with fluent midfield, a pair of opportunistic strikers, rugged defenders and a shrewd tactician for the 2010World Cup and also glimpses of their undefeated history prove that they have the highest chance of winning the title of World Champions.

World Cup- Kak Improving and Getting Ready for South Africa by Ally White

The Brazilian footballer, Kak, became almost a forgotten star player in the hall of the World Cup in South Africa, as the media has focus their attention on Argentinean Lionel Messi, English Wayne Rooney and Spaniards David Villa and Fernando Torres. However, from the shadows and without the pressure of expectations, there is every reason to believe that the former FIFA Footballer of the Year will finally shine on the biggest stage of the World Cup.

Kak suffered some injuries during his disappointing debut season with Real Madrid, but this could play easily on his favor. After participating in just 33 games with his club, it is likely that Kak will be in better shape than many of his rivals, who in some cases have played over 50 games this season.

To prove that he is in good shape, Kak scored his first goal of the year with the team when Brazil crashed Tanzania 5-1 this past Monday, in its final preparation match before the tournament in South Africa, which starts on June 12th. During the friendly game, Kak, with his speed and good control of the ball was a constant nightmare for the defenders of Tanzania. His goal was the great proof of his comeback.

His coach Dunga, his teammates and doctors are relieved that Kak is playing without pain. He is getting his confidence back in the field and during the friendly game against Tanzania he was an important aspect for the team.

At the end of the match, Kak stated he was happy with his performance but still knows he is not yet at his best. Nevertheless, he knows he still have some days to work on certain things and hopes to improve at every game in South Africa.

"I felt fine. I played better in this match. I just need to loosen up a little more, but we have a week until the first match and I will be ready. There are still some minor things to adjust. But it's not about being concerned, it's more about being anxious," expressed the super star Kak.

On the other hand, Brazilian coach, Dunga, alleged that Kak is getting better, but they have been trying to slow him down a bit because he wants to practice three times a day. The 28 years-old is very anxious for this tournament.

â€He's improving little by little. We have to put the brakes on him because sometimes he wants to train morning, noon and night,†Dunga said.

Kak will play his third World Cup in South Africa. During Corea-Japan 2002, Kak was only an alternate. Four years ago in Germany, he failed along with a group of Brazilian stars and later he didn’t play in the quarterfinals against France due to injury. During this match, Brazil got eliminated after a 1-0 defeat.

With Brazil now playing a more paused game, taking chances with their counter-attacks, Kak may be the only reminder of the showy and creative style game, which made Brazil one of the favorite teams for many soccer followers.

Now, there is only one week left for Kak and Brazil to make their debut in this 2010 World Cup. They are part of Group G along with Portugal, Ivory Coast and North Korea. Their first meeting will be against North Korea on June 15th.

The preceding World cup win in 1942 created history for successfully defending the title. This incident have created great fan follow up for the team and still stands out as the best soccer team the world have ever seen. Then it took pretty much years to win another title back in 1984. The finale was very interesting that will remain fresh in every soccer fans mind. The 3-1 victory with the remarkable goal in the 83rd minute was awesome. And finally in 2006, they kissed the World Cup again with a pretty tough match with France and ended in a 5-3 victory.

It will be bad if I left out the Italian Captain Fabio Cannavaro who won the FIFA World Player of the year in 2006. He has been the Captain for 133 games and record of the most capped Italian national team player also goes to this 37 year old. Another great player in the team is Andrea Pirlo who is a free kick specialist. He has played for the youth teams and was the captain of the winning team in 2000 and also bagged the title of the Golden player of the tournament. He was also the captain at 2004 Olympics when the team won the Bronze medal in the tournament.
