- Brazil, France, England and Argentina are mentioned first and foremost in this group
Brazil and France with the best chances at the World Cup
Brazil is pointed out as the main favorite to triumph at the World Cup by bookmakers. The Canarinhos are in very good shape and have swept through the qualifiers for the tournament like a storm. In friendly matches against lower-ranked rivals they are organizing real shooting practice, and Neymar remains the leader of the team. The PSG star rarely disappoints in the national colors, and he already has 74 goals in 120 matches. He is now just two hits short of matching the legendary Pele in this regard.
In the group at the World Cup, Brazil will face Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon. The Canarinhos are typified as the natural favorite to come out on top at the expense of the much lower ranked teams in the FIFA ranking. They have been waiting for success at the World Cup since 2002.
In second place in terms of bookmaker odds is the French national team. The tricolors will enter the tournament as defending world champions. In 2018, they defeated Croatia 4:2 in the final and took the trophy. However, they are currently far from their best form. The French national team has won just one of their last six games, and fans have concerns about their performance at the World Cup. Didier Deschamps, however, has an extremely deep squad at his disposal, full of world soccer stars, and the team’s leader at the tournament is expected to be Kylian Mbappe.
France ended up in a fairly easy group. In addition to it there are Denmark, Australia and Tunisia. The tricolors are by far the highest-ranked national team of this group in the FIFA ranking.
Argentina and England’s chances are valued similarly
The lowest place on the podium in terms of favorites to triumph at the World Cup in Qatar is occupied ex aequo by England and Argentina. The Lions of Albion, like the French, did not do well during this year’s Nations League. However, they have a number of players from the absolute top of football in their cadre, and they will enter the tournament as European runners-up.
Argentina’s play has inspired nothing but admiration lately. The Albicelestes haven’t lost in 35 games and are hoping to break the record held by Italy in this regard. They are only three games short of that. In the team, invariably for many years the leader is Lionel Messi, who with successive matches proves that in his case age, is just a number. He is scoring at club, in the national team and will probably score at the World Cup as well. Argentina has a superbly organized defensive line, and its offensive players sow fear among rivals. It is not without reason that it is listed among the favorites ahead of the World Cup.
