The FIFA World Cup is finally upon us, with the big kick-off just hours away.

Global excitement is building and we’re all wondering who could be the breakout stars this time around, and perhaps who will obtain the prestigious Golden Boot award.

In Group B, we will witness European champions Portugal, 2010 World champions Spain, and Iran and Morocco, who will both be at just their sixth World Cup.

Portugal have assembled a relatively inexperienced side, leaving out star names such as Luis Nani, Renato Sanches and Andre Gomes, whilst the Spanish are entering the competition without the likes of Carlos Puyol, Xavi and Iker Casillas for the first time in for over a decade, as their golden generation comes to a close.

Most of Iran’s squad contains the majority of those involved in Brazil four years ago, whilst not a single Moroccan player has played at the elite competition before, as they enter the world stage for the first time since 1998.

So with all eyes on Cristiano Ronaldo and David Silva, who else should we be on the lookout for in Group B.
