The most successful team in World Cup History are Brazil and they will make their bow against North Korea in the 2010 tournament, that venue for the tie will be Ellis Park. Brazil are the team that everybody loves to watch with their brilliant flowing style and trickery catching the eye, they will be expecting to breeze past the North Koreans in this one as they have their eye firmly on picking up the World Cup for a 6th time. The Brazilians qualified with ease for the World Cup as always and will face the North Koreans expecting to pick up the the three points with relative ease with tougher matches to come. Also in Group G are the Ivory Coast and Portugal in one of the tougher groups of the World Cup so this match is vital for both teams if they have design on moving to the last 16.
North Korea are playing their first World Cup since 1966 and are delighted to have qualified but realistically will be lucky to pick up a single point in this tough section. They will no doubt be well organised and hard working but in terms of quality they seem to be serious lacking.
