RIO DE JANEIRO, May 14 (UPI) -- The 2014 FIFA World Cup will kickoff in a little less than a month when host nation Brazil faces off against Croatia on June 12. Thirty-two teams will play in the 32-day tournament and this video should get you a little more informed about the tournament with a fact about each team.
Based on the first one, it would seem that Brazil -- World Cup winner in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002 -- should probably be the favorite.
Here's a sampling of some World Cup facts:
Brazil -- Has never lost a home game since 1975.
The tournament's current 32-team format was used for the first time in France in 1998.
Netherlands -- The only team to reach the World Cup finals three times without a win.
Tore Keller of Sweden, then 33, was the oldest player to score FIFA World Cup hat-trick.
Cameroon -- Most World Cup appearances of any African nation.
The biggest scoring line in the history of World Cup qualifiers occurred when Australia beat American Samoa 31-0 in April 2001.
Spain -- Has the record with 29 consecutive undefeated competitive games.
