Every day leading up to the eve of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, TSN.ca will be previewing one of the eight participating groups. Today, the previews begin with Group A featuring Neymar and the host Brazilians, Samuel Eto'o's Cameroon, Luka Modric and Croatia and Mexico with Javier Hernandez. Check back on Tuesday for Group B.

All eyes will be on Group A as it features the home team in Luiz Felipe Scolari's Selecao. After triumphing in last summer's Confederations Cup, expectations for a Brazilian side featuring the likes of Oscar, Hulk and David Luiz will be high and the pressure will be even higher. Can they cope with it?

An argument can be made that Cameroon is more than fortunate to simply be going to Brazil at all, but even if the Indomitable Lions were the beneficiaries of some good luck (and Togo's bad luck), can they ride it to claim a spot in the knockout stages?

Niko Kovac played in two World Cups himself and now gets to coach in his first, leading an offensively talented Croatia side to Brazil. How will Croatia contend with playing in the tournament's opening match against the host Selecao?

After a qualifying campaign that almost ended in disaster, Mexico, somewhat improbably, heads to its sixth-straight World Cup. What changes will Miguel Herrera make to his midfield following this past weekend's gruesome injury to Luis Montes?
