There’s no denying the fact that FIFA World Cup is extremely popular in every part of the world. It happens every 4 years and this time it’s scheduled to be held in Russia from June 14.
Like the earlier editions of the World Cup, there will be 32 nations participating in the tournament this time too, and there will be plenty of World Cup betting action as well! Before we go over the 5 teams with the best chance of winning the trophy this time, here are 20 important stats you should refer to ahead of the 2018 World Cup.
Onto the teams now!
Germany’s performance in the FIFA competitions has always been nothing short of magnificent. While majority of the other teams rely on big names, Germany banks upon teamwork. They undeniably have the best line-up in the world right now, with players like Mats Hummels, Mesut Ozil, Thomas Muller, Marco Reus, Toni Kroos, Nicklas Sule, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, Julian Draxler, Jerome Boateng and others in the ranks. Here’s a detailed team profile of the German football team.
The gameplay techniques and skills of the German players are quite different compared to the other squads. No one would be surprised if they go all the way and win the World Cup once again.
Considered the most in-form team from Europe right now, the French team has one of the best squads with solid quality and depth in all the three departments of: attack, defence and midfield.
They have players like Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane and N’Golo Kante at the prime stage of their careers. With the kind of squad they have, French are capable of winning any given day. It’s a fairly young team that’s expected to get even better once the World Cup starts.
After having lost the Copa America and World Cup last time, Argentinians must be really desperate to bag the coveted title this time around, for the 3rd time in the history of the event.
Although they aren’t in the top form right now, everyone knows how Argentinians can bounce back once the World Cup begins. They cannot be ruled out at all and definitely deserve to be among the prime contenders for the title.
After having had a nightmarish semi-finals in the 2014 World Cup, Brazil would be looking for some redemption, as well as completion of the leftover task. And the best way to do that is by winning the World Cup trophy.
Everyone is aware that Brazil has a very deadly squad and some of the best players of the recent times, like Gabriel Jesus, Neymar, Marcelo, Philippe Coutinho and others. There’s loads of experience in the lone-up, for every position on the field.
One of the few teams that have undergone some major changes since the last World Cup, Spain has many talented players like David de Gea, Thiago Alcantara, Isco and Alvaro Morata filling up the gaps left by the previous talented generation.
The current Spanish football team has a nice and intelligent mix of both experience and youth. A team that consists of quality players like Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Ramos, Marco Asensio, David Silva, Isco and Alvaro Morata can never be undermined!
