Why I Love the World Cup - Froch
Carl Froch tells Sky Sports Why he Loves the World Cup

One to watch
No.13 - Schweinsteiger
The Bayern Munich vice-captain will take part in his third World Cup having been part of the 2006 and 2010 German sides, both of whom reached the semi-final stage. Whilst a number of Germany's golden generation will get at least one more chance on international football's biggest stage, at 29, this could be Schweinsteiger's last opportunity.

World Cup greats
No.13 - Carlos Alberto
Alberto participated in just one World Cup and scored just one goal. The good news for him is that he was captain of the triumphant Brazil side of 1970, regarded as the best the tournament has ever seen, and his goal is arguably the most famous in World Cup history - his powerful strike finishing off a flowing move to seal a 4-1 win in the final.
