World Cup 2014

2014openingceremony

Although the tournament is still up and running, I thought I would go ahead and get a start on my H/T Index for Brazil 2014.  The idea is to include links for everything you need to relive the World Cup, with pre-tournament analysis of the teams as well as full video, highlights, and analysis of games whenever possible.

General Resources

World Cup: The [Insider’s] Guide – A fantastic all-around resource, with lots of useful and entertaining stuff, including . . .
World Cup Posters – There were some nice ones this year.  (For purposes of historical comparison, you might check out the incredible posters from Spain 1982.)
World Cup Kits – Nice picture of home and away kits (plus a few third jerseys) for all 32 competing nations.
Namez: 2014 World Cup – Native pronunciations for the names of every player on a World Cup roster, as well as stadiums, locations, and referees.  Talk like you know.
Soccer Politics: World Cup 2014 Guide – Designed by students in a “Soccer Politics” course at Duke University, this site has plenty of good stuff and is well worth checking out.
Goldman Sachs: The World Cup and Economics – A fancy title for GS’s statistical modeling of this World Cup.  The results are strikingly similar to . . .
FiveThirtyEight’s World Cup Predictions – . . . the initial predictions from Nate Silver’s statistical reporting site.  During the tournament, the interactive format gave live time revisions in the predictions, but they have now reverted to their original, archived predictions from 9 June.  Nate Silver himself wrote a short piece comparing their predictions to other ratings sites.
