Brazil, Spain, Germany, France, and Argentina are considered as the strongest contenders. All of them have won the title at least once with Germany being the current Winners. Will they defend their title? Check out the top 5 teams who could win FIFA World Cup 2018.
No matter what the result of last edition, the five times World Champions are the favorites to win this World Cup. Since losing 1-7 to Germany, Brazil has reached a new level of Football. We should not forget that the Brazilians were the first to qualify directly for the finals via qualifiers.
Having players like Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Brazil just have what they need to win the trophy. New coach Tite has done his job brilliantly so far and is likely to continue his job like that. Check team squad of Brazil.
The Germans were unbeatable in the last World Cup who eliminated the hosts in a shocking way at their home. They completely dominated the World Cup right from the start with the 4-0 win against Portugal in their opening game. They did take extra time to win the final by 1-0 against Argentina but it was a win which matters most.
Three years later, Germany won the FIFA Confederations Cup without most of their key players. Julian Draxler was in charge as a captain who helped his side to win the trophy that they never won. A great mixture of experienced, young, talented players makes them one of the strongest competitors of Football World Cup. Check team squad of Germany.
No team has achieved what Spain achieved from 2008 to 2012 winning back to back European titles and a FIFA World Cup. They thrashed almost every record during that period. But since winning 2012, things didn’t go the way they planned. Early elimination in 2014 World Cup and disappointing run in Euro 2016 put a question mark on Spain Football. Check team squad of Spain.
The Spanish Football Federation then signed new coach Julen Lopetegui who won two European titles for Spain during his charge as a head coach of U19 and U21. One more good news is most players of 2002 to 2012 period are still active. The combination of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and other club players can repeat the history of 2010. Do you think so?
Having probably the best-attacking squad in this competition is the biggest advantage of Argentina. Lionel Messi who is highly responsible for Argentina’s qualification will be assisted by other forwards in the form of Sergio Aguero, Paulo Dybala, and Gonzalo Higuain. Although they had to wait until the last game of qualifier for World Cup qualification, but we should not forget that Albiceleste finished 2nd in Brazil World Cup.
The current Vice Champions last won FIFA World Cup in 1986 which makes them stronger contenders. One player who they’ll miss a lot is previous World Cup hero Sergio Romero. The goalkeeper has been ruled out of the squad due to serious injury. Check team squad of Argentina.
We can finally say that the current team of Portugal is probably the best they can have. Head coach Fernando Santos might have gone through lots of problems in selecting the best from the bests.
The Navigators won the 2016 UEFA Euro in an unexpected way which means they can repeat what they did two years ago. Having Cristiano Ronaldo in the squad increases the probability of doing it. He’ll be assisted by Andre Silva, Ricardo Quaresma. Check team squad of Portugal.
As we know anything can happen in Football, there are other strong teams like France, England, Belgium who could also win the title. This is just our prediction. Make your prediction.
