Host nation Brazil are huge favourites to win World Cup Group A. Ranked 9th in the world by FIFA, Brazil showed their strength on home soil 12 months ago when winning every match at the Confederations Cup, a dress rehearsal for this summers' main event.
We've got World Cup odds from the leading bookmakers on Freebets.com where you can compare prices for teams to win Group A along with other World Cup betting markets for other Group winners and the outright winner.
Brazil fared quite well in the draw, Cameroon, Croatia and Mexico oppose the host nation and should they win the group, as expected, will meet the runners up of Group B at the Second Round stage.
The battle for the second Group A qualifying spot looks between Mexico and Croatia, they go head to head in the final group match which could decide which of the nations progress to the knock out stages. Mexico have qualified for the second round at the last five World Cup finals, their superior tournament record and familiarity with the climate could prove the telling factors.
Cameroon can be an entertaining side on their day. Loaded with experienced players including world-class striker Samuel Eto'o, the Lions could appeal as a potential surprise of World Cup 2014, but will need to step up on their record of falling at the first hurdle - they've not progressed beyond the group stage of their last four appearances in the finals.
Group A games will be held in Sao Paolo, Natal, Fortaleza, Manaus, Brasilia and Recife.
