So with the hosts kicking off the tournament and the defending champions set to play tonight, the World Cup is well and truly up and running.
We have been talking all about the likes of Lionel Messi, Andrea Pirlo and Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of the tournament and simply cannot wait to see who flourishes this summer.

With that in mind, we have taken a gamble and listed five stars who might be kings of their clubs, but who may have to prove a little bit before they start for their countries.
Here are five players we tip to be break out stars for their respective nations this summer.
