Will it be Germany again, or will one the dark horses, like France take the honours? Maybe even an outsider, like Oman will cause a huge shock?

As the excitement builds, we will have much more from thorough out the world, but right now, we are delighted to reveal the World Cup Ball!

The International Socca Federation is delighted  this afternoon to announce a fantastic ball sponsorship deal with the world class football brand Umbro.
