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 continue with Group B featuring Pedro Rodriguez and the defending champions Spain, Arturo Vidal and Chile, Robin van Persie's Netherlands and Australia with Tim Cahill. Check back on Wednesday for Group C.

Can a star-studded roster featuring Xavi Hernandez, Sergio Ramos, Andres Iniesta and Juan Mata accomplish arguably the greatest feat in football history?
