So, now that we know the 32 teams who will go to Russia, who will win?

My own thought is that Brazil is on such good form that they have to be favorites now. But on paper, the best team is France, and Argentina and Portugal have Messi and Ronaldo so can't be ruled out.

Belgium could be the dark horses of the tournament. They're not a fashionable name in world football but if the individual talent they have at their disposal click as a team then they could go all the way.

England always looks good on paper then falls apart. Im not anti-England, I would actually like to see them winning something but they were awful at EURO2016 with the same squad. Of course Kane and Alli have matured a lot since so theres hope

Going with Germany as my pick. Not really a fan, but I don't despise them, either. Having said that...don't sleep on Croatia. Lots of talent there; the question is whether they can actually play as a team and not just a bunch of guys running around mindlessly on the pitch (like, say, Mexico).

After England I'm rooting for the Netherlands.  And hoping that Portugal crashes and burns.

I'm hating this already since The Netherlands doesn't have the tickets to the World Cup. They're in really bad shape. Again no World/Europian. I really miss it! It's been 4 years now, and there a lot of chance it'll due 4 more years before we'll play again. We don't have the good players anymore. Robben has retired from the Dutch 11 a few months ago -- he was the last

No Italy, either  :'(

Ventura was THE worst coach in history of Italian football.He played the wrong system, forced players out of their normal position and ignored the players who were scoring tons of goals for their clubs.It was if he didn't want to go to the World Cup.If Antonio Conte had still been the coach I think Italy would've qualified  :-\

It doesn't seem like a World Cup without Italy.

I didn't even realize that the NL weren't in it either.  Wow... this does seem like a bizarro WC without them or Italy.

I've never been a fan of Argentina although i have enjoyed their rivalry with England.  Many of the (former) Portland Timbers players are Argentinian, but none have made it onto the squad that i know of.  Valeri was just named MLS MVP and knowing what he's capable of, i don't see how he isn't on the squad, except maybe his age is holding him back at this point.
