Now we can talk about the successful ones for winning dream for their motherlands.

Top scorers, sometimes as we can call them.

Africa: Asamoah Gyan (Ghana), Mohamed Aboutrika, Mohamed Salah (both Egypt) – six goals

Asia: Shinji Okazaki (Japan) – eight goals

Europe: Robin van Persie (Netherlands) – 11 goals

North & Central America and Caribbean: Deon McCauley (Belize) – 11 goals

South America: Luis Suarez (Uruguay) – 11 goals

Now considering for Africa Ghana can be taken as the top scorers with 18 goals in six group matches and managed 15 points, more than any other countries in their region. Though they had to suffer a loss(1-0) against Zambia. But at the end of the day it was never a problem for them anymore.

Probably Japan has qualified with the highest points tally from the group stages. So Iran can draw out the special mentioning from Asia. This team managed to top their group despite scoring 8 goals in 8 matches.

Belgium, England, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland these are the only seven teams those qualified without losing any game. But Germans and Dutch were exceptional two who made the record of : played 10, won nine, drawn one. Amazingly both received 28 points of possible 30..

 The United States made the maximum points from the qualifying group. Jurgen Klinsmann’s men lost to Jamaica, Costa Rica and Honduras along the journey to the final round.

If Brazil was not the host probably there were some others who would have needed a three way tussle between them. The three eventual group winners Argentina, Colombia and Chile. Every one of them finished with nine wins from 16 matches. But a remarkable 19 goals from Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain made the difference for Argentina,.
