Olympic gold medalist Jessica Ennis-Hill has given her predictions ahead of this year's World Cup in Brazil.

The athlete has predicted that it could be good news for Roy Hodgson's men, as she is tipping them as one of two teams that can win the tournament. However, Ennis-Hill also selected the hosts of the next Olympic games, Brazil, as the other team that could go all the way this summer.

This means that England will have to meet the Samba stars en-route to the final, as she is predicting that one of the two sides will play Joachim Low's Germany in the final.

According to the Heptathlete, Argentina's Lionel Messi will pick up the Player of the Tournement accolade ahead of the likes of Barcelona teammate Neymar and great rival Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo will not leave Brazil empty handed however, as he will receive the Golden Boot, despite just coming back from injury and only playing 66 minutes in Portugal's final World Cup warm up game.

His country will need his goals to advance from a tough World Cup group which includes Ennis-Hill's pick to reach the final Germany, her surprise package Ghana and the United States of America.

Many experts have suggested that Belgium will be this years dark horses, although it is questionable whether the 'Dark Horse' label applies for them as they have been backed for over a year.

Ennis-Hill however goes against the experts and suggest that Ghana will be this year's surprise package.

The African side could see this tournament as unfinished business  after their controversial exit of the 2010 World Cup where Liverpool striker Luis Suarez stopped a certain goal with his hand.
