The 2014 World Cup is here! Let's get your bracket on.

If you're the rare breed of nerd who happens to love sportsball, hold onto your butts. The World Cup begins in Brazil in just 2 days! It kicks off with the hosts taking on Croatia. Who will win?

And who will win it all?

If you think you know a thing or two about soccer / fútbol / footy / world's-most-popular-sport, spend countless hours playing FIFA, or construct meticulous lineups in Football Manager, then you need to join our Engadget World Cup bracket that's being hosted on Yahoo Sports.

Awesome! I guess other people's picks aren't displayed until after the games start. I'm glad you're giving it a try though!

I would have liked to see other people's picks so I would know how bad mine were. But, oh well. This should be fun!

Hah! I'm a big fan of Croatia, a good friend is Croatian and I was rooting for Croatia (they were downright robbed!).

That said, I can't be too unhappy with my prediction. ;)

Mexico up next!
