With World Cup fever spreading throughout Rams Park, we caught up with soccer aficionados Chris Long, Greg Zuerlein and Johnny Hekker to get their predictions.

We posed a simple question to Greg: out of the Rams current roster, which 11 players would make up the best soccer lineup?



“I wanted to get a really fast guy and a tall guy up top for headers,” Zuerlein said. “I’ve got big, fast outside midfielders who can be physical, get into the box and help finish. They’re going to run a lot. In the middle, I have people who can control the ball and then keep the bullies in the back. Robert Quinn should be able to move well in goal.”

Zuerlein’s World Cup Predictions

1) Brazil
2) Germany
3) Spain

Golden Boot: Neymar or Messi depending on who goes further

Hekker’s World Cup Predictions

1) Spain
2) Germany
3) Brazil

Golden Boot: Messi even though “I don’t want to be boring.”

Long’s World Cup Predictions

1) Germany
2) Brazil
3) Argentina
Dark Horse: Belgium

Golden Boot: Drogba because “that’s my homeboy and we follow each other on Instagram.”
