THE COUNTDOWN: Seven days to go!

PIC OF THE DAY: Pressure - what pressure? With a week to go until the biggest tournament of their lives, Neymar and Marcelo kept their cool with a splash-splash in the pool at Brazil's training base yesterday!


- England are waiting for results of a scan today to find out whether Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will miss the World Cup after injuring his knee!

- Cristiano Ronaldo's nursing a knee injury of his own, and Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is begging for him not to play him until he's fully fit - meaning he could miss Portugal's opening game against Germany!

- Italy are ready to jet out to Brazil after playing their last friendly game before the tournament last night - a limp 1-1 draw against minnows Luxembourg!

- Keeper Thibaut Courtois will play a big part for Belgium in Brazil, and Italy's legendary keeper Gianluigi Buffon is a fan. Picking out his top keepers, he said, "The youngster I like a lot is the Belgian, Courtois. I like him a lot!"

- And finally, Uruguay main man Luis Suarez has been teasing his Liverpool teammates - texting them to say he WILL be fit in time to face England. Bah!
