We want you to help out with writing squad previews for all the teams that qualified to the World Cup 2014. Remember that all previews have to be directly related to the teams/players in Football Manager 2014. Here's a template of what you'll be asked to write about.

1) group the team is in + squad list (with pic if applicable)
2) history - recent performances in previous world cups and honors (if any)
3) star players/ones to watch
4) current manager - brief profile
5) team legends
6) top clubs of nation - brief mention
7) media prediction + personal opinion
8) references - links to official places (twitter, federation site)

If you have any objections or suggestions of altering this template, feel free to share your opinion.

We basically need to produce 32 articles. I'll make a list of all 32 teams below and you can tell me which ones you want to write about so I can assign you to them.

Brazil (hosts) - Walter
Argentina - Walter
Colombia - l3nnart
Uruguay - Jack
Belgium - Bst222
Germany - Josh_MU
Spain - pompeyblue
Switzerland - Arvind

Algeria - jasonvilla4ever
Cameroon - AaronHJFT96
Ivory Coast - Jack
Ghana - TVDLC123
Nigeria - Pauker
Chile - Walter
Ecuador - fzemdegs

Australia - fzemdegs
Japan - fmhunter
Iran - fzemdegs
South Korea - TVDLC123
Costa Rica - jasonvilla4ever
Honduras - Josh_MU
Mexico - Justice
United States - Josh_MU

Bosnia and Herzegovina - _Man_u_barmy_army_
Croatia - ZapdosTheGreat
England - Josh_MU
France - pompeyblue
Greece - TVDLC123
Italy - LFC
Netherlands - LFC
Portugal - pompeyblue
Russia - Rablador

We need to start with this project right away and possibly aim to complete 2 articles per day so we can get them all done before WC2014 kicks off.
