Ten teams have already qualified for the World Cup, while giants like Germany and Spain are on the cusp of qualification. But then there are plenty of other teams, which are looking at qualifying for the very first time in their history.

Let us take a look at five of the best placed teams, who look like they will be able to make it to Brazil and feature in their first-ever World Cup.

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Since becoming an independent nation in 1992, after being a part of Yugoslavia, the Bosnians have come close on quite a few times. During qualification for the previous World Cup, they lost to Portugal in the playoffs and before that they failed to win their last game, which would have given them a chance in 2006.

This time around, they have already booked a playoff berth and if they manage to win their remaining two games, they will qualify outright for the World Cup as group winners. They are currently ranked 13 in the world – the highest they have ever been ranked.

With an attacking trio of Edin Dzeko, Vedad Ibisevic and Zvjezdan Misimovic, they have racked up 25 goals in just eight games and only Germany have scored more than them so far. They certainly look set to take Brazil by storm in 2014.
