Insider Predictions

Brazil

Brazil hosted the World Cup in 2014 and they will be pushing to win this year after losing to Germany in on home turf. Odds are that Brazil are among the favourites and will be viciously to make up for that disappointment.

Germany

In the same case, Germany will be desperate to make sure they retain the trophy and land consecutive wins following on from their success at the 2014 World Cup.

Argentina

Argentina struggled to qualify but they got the job done and with Lionel Messi in the team, they can’t be overlooked. He needs to cement his status as one of the best players to have ever played the game and the pressure is on for the Barcelona star to perform on the biggest stage of all.

Belgium

A team which has been an underdog for many years, Belgium are enjoying a golden age with the likes of Kevind De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku helping them become one of the best teams in the world.

France

France are among the favourites to win the World Cup 10 years after their triumph in Paris. The French have a squad packed with talent so with the likes of Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann in their ranks, they are expected to make a huge impact in Russia.
