It's the moment sports fans around the globe have been waiting for! The 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil begins on Thursday - and we think we know who's going to win. Well, that's if the RTÉ soccer panellists are anything to go by.

John Giles, Richie Sadlier, Eamon Dunphy, Ossie Ardiles, Ray Houghton, Kenny Cunningham, Ronnie Whelan and Bill O'Herlihy got together at the RTÉ World Cup coverage launch to discuss their predictions. Not surprisingly, the lads had differing opinions on who would take home the coveted trophy.

Veteran sports presenter O'Herlihy also spoke about his plans to retire after the competition, and reflected on his first World Cup with RTÉ, saying: "Argentina [1978] was the first. Eamon and myself did Argentina a long time ago. There will be a certain emotion. But on the other hand, it's my decision to retire. I feel like I'm going to enjoy it immensely."
