With the 2014 World Cup almost upon us, Gary Lineker is joined by former England captains Rio Ferdinand and Alan Shearer in Brazil to look ahead to the tournament.

Host nation Brazil get the action underway on the first day against Croatia and they will be among the leading contenders to take home the coveted trophy for a record fifth time. Reigning World and European Champions Spain and three-time winners Germany will also be among the favourites, however no European team has ever won a World Cup in South America.

Roy Hodgson has named a youthful England squad and the panel will assess their challenge, which begins against Italy in the sweltering heat of Manaus, followed by group games with Uruguay and Costa Rica.
