People are still asking Who will WIN the World Cup 2018 hosted by Russia,A�well it is going to be a tough one because theA�Defending champions Germany are currently favourites to win the World Cup with most bookmakers.

Joachim Low will be without former captain Philipp Lahm, who has retired, in Russia and Bastian Schweinsteiger is unlikely to be involved having left Europe for MLS, but he still boasts a star-studded cast of players that includes Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil and Thomas Muller.

Germany qualified at the top of their group with a perfect record, scoring 43 goals in 10 games.

Euro 2016 finalists France are also fancied to be in contention as their new generation of stars mature into a formidable unit.

Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe are just some of the stars Les Bleus will be relying on but Didier Deschamps’ side had to wait until their final qualifying match to win their group.

Brazil and Spain have jumped ahead of France in the betting on the back of more impressive qualifying campaigns.

 

Brazil boast attacking talent in abudance, with Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino forming a dangerous front three, but have also found an unlikely new star in Barcelona‘s Paulinho, who, despite flopping at Tottenham, has been a revelation for his country.

Spain are looking to bounce back from a meagre few years which saw them eliminated at the group stage of the 2014 World Cup and knocked out in the round of 16 at Euro 2016.

Julen Lopetegui’s side have won nine of their 10 qualifiers, eventually finishing five points clear of Italy.

Argentina are also rated as contenders despite their dreadful qualification campaign, while Belgium, Italy and England are all outside bets to win the tournament.
