Posted by Kathleen Girvan on Jun 03, 2014 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 18 Chelsea players will be donning their country’s uniform in Brazil over the coming weeks, making Chelsea the best represented football club in the world, eclipsing fellow BPL team Manchester United and the Budesliga’s Bayern Munich who will both be sending 16 representatives.

Jose Mourinho’s squad will be representing several World Cup contenders, and will feature a pair of extremely important veteran players for the England side in Frank Lampard and Gary Cahill.

After 107 CAP’s Ashley Cole was left off the England roster as the team decided to give their younger players a chance on football’s biggest stage.

The World Cup Contenders

Brazil will be well represented by the Blues

2014 favorites Brazil will have four Chelsea players on their World Cup roster with Oscar, Willian, Ramires and stout defender and vice-captain of the team David Luiz all making the tough Brazilian side.

With home field advantage and an always well-manned roster it’s no wonder Brazil are the odds on favorites to take home the 2014 World Cup. You should check out if you are looking the best odds and tips on the World Cup.

A Spanish duo, a German, and a Dutchman

Perrenial contenders Germany, Spain, and Netherlands all have Chelsea players as well.

Spain’s roster includes the enigmatic Fernando Torres (which Torres will show up is always up for debate) as well as Cesar Azpilicueta.

Germany’s side will include Andre Schurrle, the latest in a long line of talented German strikers.

Holland’s Chelsea representative will be Patrick van Aanholt a new face on the Dutch side who may or may not see some action in Brazil.

Belgium looking to make some noise

The small country of Belgium is known for producing some legendary players, but rarely are the Belgians able to put together a roster as deep and well rounded as the one they are sending ti Rio De Janeiro.

According to the latest betting lines, the Belgians have the fifth best odds of winning the 2014 World Cup and a lot of that has to do with the three Chelsea players on the Belgian side, especially Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku.

The third Blue to make the Belgian team was Thiabaut Courtois.

Happy to get out of group play

Three African nations also feature Chelsea players, but unlike the South American and European powerhouses, Nigeria, Ghana (who landed in the group of death), and Cameroon would be happy to survive group play.

Nigeria has three players from Chelsea, John Obi Mikel, Victor Moses, and Kenneth Omeuro.

Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’o comes into the 2014 World Cup with 117 CAP’s and an astonishing 56 goals for his home country.

Ghana’s Chelsea rep is Christian Atsu, who is currently on loan to Vitesse.
