FIFA World Cup: Lionel Messi Picks Brazil And France As Favourites

March 30, 2023 0 By JohnValbyNation

Lionel Messi hailed France and Brazil as favourites to win the FIFA World Cup in Qatar because of a core group of players who have played together long, as per Reuters.

“We always say the same great teams, but, if I have to choose, Brazil and France are the two great candidates to win the World Cup,” Messi told DIRECTV Sports. 


“They’ve had the same group (of players) for a long time, working well. France, aside from the last Euros when they were eliminated (in the last 16) and did badly, they have some impressive players,” Messi added.

“They have a clear idea and the same coach (Didier Deschamps). Brazil is a bit the same (under Tite),” Messi went on to say. 


Messi did not mention Argentina, who have not lost their last 35 matches, among the favourites. This is despite the fact that Lionel Scaloni’s side won Copa America in 2021 by beating Brazil in the title clash.
