With the FIFA World Cup in Brazil only one week away, fans around the world are preparing for what may be the largest sporting event on the globe.

Follow up:

The World Cup will probably spark unprecedented levels of Twitter activity, and may enable fans to interact with their idols like never before.

The undisputed Twitter king among soccer players is Portugal's megastar Cristiano Ronaldo who currently has 26.5 million followers. Brazilian starlet Neymar Júnior is a distant second with 10.7 million fans, followed by England's striker Wayne Rooney. Overall, Spanish players dominate the Top 10 much like they did the pitches of the previous three international tournaments they won. The Spaniards are among the favorites to win the title in Brazil, and could become the first team since Brazil in 1962 to win back-to-back World Cup titles.
