England will have to face a huge number of dangers in the so-called group of death in the World Cup at Brazil 2014. Roy Hodgson's team will have to face of Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica while taking in the cities of Rio, Manaus, Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte.

After travelling thousands of miles, England will then, somehow, have to summon the energy to contain some of the best players in the world.

Uruguay possess two of the best strikers on the planet in Liverpool's Luis Suarez and Paris Saint-Germain FC's Edinson Cavani. Mario Balotelli, of Italy and AC Milan fame, will lead the Azzurri's strikeforce with Juventus' Andrea Pirlo pulling all the strings from a deep lying role in midfield.

Then comes the least fancied team in the group, Costa Rica. Los Ticos will go to Brazil fully expected by many to lose every single match. However, in the likes of Fulham's Bryan Ruiz, Everton's Bryan Oviedo and Arsenal's Joel Campbell they have the players to hurt any team.

Read on as Bleacher Report brings you six players that England should fear in Group D in every way possible.
