Even if you can't travel to exotic Brazil to see a 2014 FIFA World Cup soccer game, you can now see the sprawling layouts of the 12 beautiful stadiums where all the action is unfolding by using Google Street View. The images of the stadiums were recently unveiled on the Google Lat Long Blog, giving soccer-crazy fans around the globe a chance to get close-up looks at the venues where the games will be decided. This year's World Cup is being held through July 13 in the Brazilian cities of Salvador, Brasilia, Manaus, Recife, Natal, Cuiaba, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Fortaleza, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba and Porto Alegre. Single-ticket prices for individual matches range from $220 to $495, while finals tickets range from $440 to $990. So who will win this year's World Cup? The favorites include host nation Brazil, as well as Germany and Argentina, according to predictions from CBS Sports. Video game vendor EA Sports played a simulated World Cup 2014 tournament using its latest soccer video game, resulting in a "win" by Brazil. Maybe everyone should go home now?
