There's no sporting event in the world quite like the World Cup.

Millions upon millions watch as 32 countries do battle to decide which nation gets to lay claim to being the world's best. National pride is at stake, the game's top players are pitted in head-to-head battles and, for one month in the summer every four years, there doesn't seem to be anything more important than the action on the pitch.

While we still have several months to wait for the action in Brazil to commence, we now know which countries have qualified and in what groups they have been placed. In other words, we have plenty of time to analyze every little detail of the tournament.

If you were looking for a primer to the entire event, you've come to the right place. From a full schedule and television information to the U.S. team's chances to which countries ended up in the dreaded "Group of Death," you'll find everything you need to know about the 2014 World Cup right here.
