Not confident that your country can win the World Cup? 

Thanks to the Wall Street Journal, they can potentially win at something. Whether that's something you'd proudly embrace, however, is up for great debate.

The WSJ put together a fully interactive World Cup bracket they've dubbed "The World Cup of Everything Else."

So, for example, if you want to know which nation would emerge the best of the field of 32 for, say, the most Starbucks per capita (United States), highest elevation point (Argentina), highest murder rate (Honduras) or the biggest eaters of animal fat (Belgium), you can find out in their game.

And yes, there actually are a few football-related categories.
