TCS also found that Brazil and Messi were the most talked about team and player respectively during the World Cup group stage.

Indonesia contributed to nearly 10 percent of all the tweets about the 2014 FIFA World Cup, according to the TCS SocialSoccer infographic.

Developed by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), the infographic highlights findings from TCS' analysis of the most talked about teams and players from the World Cup group stage on Twitter.

Brazil, which dominated 14 percent of all the tweets, was found to be the most talked about team, while England and Portugal both tied in second place at 9 percent each. According to TCS' media statement, conversations around England and Portugal might have largely been around the teams' poor performances.

Surprisingly, tweets on Uruguay only contributed to 4 percent of the total tweets despite the biting incident during Uruguay-Italy match on 24th June 2014. According to media reports, the match saw Uruguay's Luis Suarez biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini, thereby leading to the former being banned from football for four months.  

On the individual level, Lionel Messi from Argentina, Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal, and Neymar da Silva Santos Junior (Neymar) from Brazil were the most talked about players so far. There were more than 2 million tweets on Messi, close to 1.5 million tweets on Ronaldo and nearly 1 million tweets Neymar since 12 June 2014.
