PSG and Argentina striker, Lionel Messi has expressed his opinions on the favourites to clinch the prestigious World Cup trophy come December in Qatar.
The attacker thinks that Brazil and France are the top two favourites to succeed for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
In an interview with the Argentine outlet DIRECTV, Messi was asked to name his favourites for the upcoming World Cup.
The Argentina captain picked Neymar’s Brazil and Kylian Mbappé’s France as his two favourites to win the World Cup later this year. As quoted by RMC Sport, the former Barcelona talisman said:
“As for the favourites, there are big teams like Brazil, Germany, France, England, Spain, and I’m sure I’m forgetting some. But if I have to keep one or two, today I think Brazil and France are the two big candidates for this World Cup.”
After winning the Copa América in 2021 and thumping Italy in the 2022 Finalissima, Argentina are considered among the favourites to win the World Cup, which is scheduled to kick off on November 20. As per the reports, French national team head coach Didier Deschamps will announce his squad ahead of the World Cup on November 9.
