Teams Most Likely to Win the 2018 FIFA World Cup

Songsta41

The Top Ten

1 Argentina

When I die, I'd like Messi, Higuain, Augero, and Romero to be pallbearers at my funeral...just so they can let me down one more time.

Yeah I believe that Argentina have a chance at winning, but I don think that they will. They should get at least to the semi-finals.

Leo has retired from international football, but I believe that he will decide to come back in time for the next world cup, and I think that he will finally guide Argentina to his first World cup and Argentina's first in a while.

Argentina should win the 2018 fifa world cup they should win it for messi

2 Germany

Germany consistently go further than any other team. In their 18 world cups they've made it to the final 4 a total of 13 times, they've been in final match 8 times, winning it on 4 occasions. Their average placing is third, higher than Brazil's fourth. And although they've missed 2 tournaments (1930, 1950) they've never failed to qualify. They were banned from the 1950 edition, and couldn't afford to send a team in 1930.

I think Germany is full of great players, and their passing skills are fabulous!

Messi will give in and let Germany win like last time because he is weak

Germany are in form and have a chance of winning

3 Brazil

Recently, Brazil's Olympic dive team complemented the national team's ability to dive all over the pitch. They were very enthusiastic about the new dives the team had come up with for the 2018 World Cup. They singled out Neymar for his outstanding ability to dive!

Brazil promised to not disappoint the fans and seeing as how most fans of football loved watching them lose 7-1 in the last tournament they promised to go even further and lose either 8-1 this time around to appease the fans of the sport.

It is very strange but when Brazil are favorites they disappoint massively and when they do not qualify for the FIFA Confederations Championship and struggle to qualify for the World Cup and are counted out they win they were favorites in 82 and 86 and 90 but failed they came back and struggled to qualify in 94 needing a desperate win against Chile and pleading with Romario to help the team qualify and guess what they won the whole thing, in 98 they were favorites and got routed by France in 02 they struggled to find form qualifying and were counted out before a ball could be kicked and they won it in style!

Slaughtered Argentina. Their good players will be the world's best. Neymar learns to be strong with his left and becomes d'or. ;-)

4 France

France have many upcoming players that are already playing at a top level

Best performance in the Euros and best National team of the year.

France have a great youth programme and have a great team coming up through the ranks

Well players like pogba, martial, and griezmann will make france win - JolteonIsAwesome

5 United States

Not being offensive to any USA supporters but I think that the USA will find it hard qualifying never mind winning.

No chance they don't have good players

Maybe not the favorite to win, but I love this country and will support them in the 2018 World Cup. - Songsta41

Fear the sleeping giant. They are gonna wake up now that Klinsmann is gone and Donovan is back.

6 Netherlands

I am a Germany fan all the way but I truly believe that Holland is the single team that hasn't won a World Cup, that really, really deserves it. If Germany (or my second favorite, Poland) doesn't win, I hope Netherlands wins it. They are strong with Arjen Robben and Van Persie.

Holland need full confidence they are number 1 team in my opinion in the world Dutch football always been the best to watch. All they need is good defenders like Stam once they got solid defense they will win games in style

If the Netherlands can even qualify ahead of Sweden, they'll surely exit in the group stage. In the past they've had some amazing sides but a failure to even make the Euros makes it obvious they won't get very far at all

Didn't even qualify for the Euros

7 England

I'm not the sort of person to believe in fate and it's very unlikely England will win the 2018 World Cup, plus winning a World Cup isn't down to luck or coincidence, but winning a football match could well be. England are the punchline to their own joke, the performance of their football team perfectly reflects their nations sense of humour and overall attitude. Other countries seem to believe the English are arrogant football fans and that can't be more than the truth, although chants could come across big headed they have a underlying self degradence as all England fans know they can now never expect their team to "score one more than you" or even utter the words "footballs coming home" without a sense of unrealistic hope. England don't have bad players and on a good day, they can beat anyone, the problem is they haven't had many good tournament days in their 50 years since '66. Considering this and many other factors, the dreamer inside of me thinks if England can have a few very ...more

England had a very poor outing in EURO 2016 - the Iceland game was a disaster. They have a long way to go. There is no denying the ability of English players. They are good, but 'something' is missing. They do not play well in tournament football, and they have gone from manager to manager to help them improve but to no avail. They should always be considered an outside contender to watch, but that's it. They are not a top 10, but an 11 or 12 - again, outside contender, but nevertheless, still a contender. It hurts, but one can only hope that football returns home one day.

England has got a bunch of young players and a very trustworthy front line featuring Vardy, Kane, Lallana etc. Although their Euro campaign was disappointing, until 2018, their youngsters will have gained experience and the English team will contain a lot of talent. Firing Hodgson was a crucial move, since he didn't make correct use of the awesome players he had in his arsenal, and with a new coach, England may have a lot of chances to lift the World Cup trophy. However, I believe that a new goalkeeper must also be found, since Joe Hart isn't at his top shape, and by moving to Torino, his performances will worsen.

Yes England have been a big disappointment overall in the last 5 years as a football club but many people have to see the other side, the England fooball team have a great, huge amount of tallent from sterling to Rooney and Kane but most of the failure was/has been down to the manager, Roy hodgson and big Sam, what the players do is what they are told and with Southgate I truely think that we can win this cup in 2018, with support and love, and the team as one playing like Germany or Argentina, so yes I would say we have a 60% chance of winning and keep hoping England fans, our dream will indeed come true soon!

8 Portugal

All your negative comments about Portugal team is questionable and not valid. There are haters out there. I am wondering why? This team has fought hard and has been very strong the last 10 to 12 years. They've gone to the quarters, semis, and finals. They have won the Euro 2016. Why for example Italy, which is my background, is favoured to win. They had so many failed attempts and coaching has been dismal. Contes style of coaching Azzurri doesn't work! I am tired of the defensive strategy that they implement without a true plan of attack. Pirlo was a great set piece. But he is gone. Buffon is getting old.

Ronaldo will be there, but also some players coming up from the U20 and U21. By then the team will have a stronger midfield and forwards.

First of all Portugal tied all 3 of there euro 2016 group stage games( Hungary, Iceland, Austria). Second I like ronaldo and messi. Messi is better at passing and teamwork. And ronaldo is more selfish and skilled. But I personally like messi more

This team is on fire since their crown as European Champions. They have the team and luck and spirits!

9 Mexico

They coach is very good and Mexico will be way better in 2018 because they will be able to play together better and also Mexico has Javier Hernandez

I think now that Mexico has a stable team, they should be able to win the world cup. They will become a gold team and prove everyone that didn't believe in them wrong.

I think they might get to the semi- finals because of there goalkeeper

Mexico has a possibility to win the 2018 fifa world cup. Mexico main key player in the 2018 world cup are C.Vela, Hirving Lozano, Oribe Peralta, Moises Munoz, CHICHARITO, Rafa Marquez, Andres Guardado, Gio Dos Santos, and many more. The main reason that Mexico got disqualify in the 2014 fifa world cup against Netherlands is that the Dutch make a fake dive that cause a penalty and Mexico got eliminated.

10 Italy

This is Buffon's last World Cup (I'm hoping that he reconsiders and plays for another 10 years). If this is going to truly be him end I want to see him go out as a champion. We just need better strikers. That is our only problem at this point. Here's hoping that Balotelli keeps up his form and continues to grow and improve.

Gigi Buffon is the best and with that defense this year Italy can go far. They just need to score more goals, take more risks!

If better strikers are found Italy will be a serious contender for a top three finish. This is true, because they rarely receive goals

Italy have wone the cup in 82, 12 years later only lost in penalties to brazil, 12 years later won the cup again, 12 years later they will be extremely dangerous in Russia, they are improving very quickly and will win it again!

The Newcomers

? Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia.

Nowdays iran is very good because the players are so young and work with plan and also have professional coach although they are first at asia and defeat most teams in the way of world cup and obtained several equality but it doesn't mean that they win the cup but they can show a good and memorable perform from themself to all of the people in the world.

The Contenders

11 Chile

Their unique style and dominance of the ball sets them apart. Now with experience, they might peak at the right time. A new coach with a different style will make them unpredictable and difficult to defend tactfully. The team is very balanced and they play as a team and adapt to the circumstances as the play unfolds. It seems that they all pass and seldom make mistakes. The Goalie has matured and plays for the best team Barcelona and now that they have won a tournament and they believe they can beat anyone. Most of the players have played in Europe and for the top teams, and since most of the South America teams are good unlike Europe who have too many teams that are not to par with the power house teams as Germany, England, Portugal, Spain, France and they don't usually get to play each other.

Surely this team should be at least in the top 10, best team the country has ever had, great form and they push hard and don't give up

They are a strong team with a great coach

I believe Chile will win Russia 2018 because they have stars like Alexis Sanchez,Arturo Vidal,Eduardo Vargas and more...

12 Belgium

Belgium has an amazing squad and had the youngest players in the 2014 world cup and had a great run, losing to Argentina in the quarterfinals

Belgium have young good players like lukaku and hazard they'll win

Belgium have no chance. Good team, but not World Cup winning. The Welsh have a better chance.

Beligium have a very deep squad, with above average players on the bench. Players like Hazard, Lukaku, Carrasco, De Bruyne, Courtios and Nianggolan who are among the 10-20 best in the world at their position. Assuming a perfect world with no injuries by 2018 other players like Origi, Fellini, Vertongen, Dendocker will get better with experience. It's the World Cup I see them making it, at the very least, past quarters and after quarter finals it's anyone's game.

13 Uruguay

I think they'll be second they're already in top of the list.

Uruguay can win the third world cup in future if they host the tournament in future after all Uruguay is the greatest football team of all time in the history of fifa world cup

Don't think that it's gonna happen but with Suarez it is very possible

Suarez did not play in copa america...uruguay has not lost a world cup game with luis suarez playing in over a decade...as long as he doesn't get kicked out or get a red card, then uru will go far

14 Spain

Spain may have mess up in the World Cup in Brazil but in the next three years there be much better players and the team will be strong I will always be a Spain fan no matter what

Spain is a good team but I think their defense has to work harder.

They were a joke in the 2014 World Cup losing against Netherlands 5-1 and losing against chile 4-2 and you say they are gonna win no way man

After the new manager, the team now has become rock solid

17 Croatia

The team that played best football at the EURO2016 but at their own demise fell short against Portugal. If they have played their game that game they would have won the tournament. Amazing midfield and some of the most young talents in the world yet being introduced to the A team.

Croatia played really well at EURO 2016 but an unfortunate loss to Portugal 1-0 in extra time does not tell them to give up and they also have a lot of great players in there subs and starting 11 and I am Croatian so LET'S GO CROATIA!

They got two of the best kids in the world

18 Russia

Personally, I think Russia will loose in the round of 16, nothing against them, but I don't think their good enough yet.

I'll be surprised if they get out of the group stages. Okay, they might get a fixed group like Brazil in 2014 (proven, look it up), but they'll still manage to mess it up

Russia will win they will try hard because they are in their own country, Russia never give up.

PUTIN probably will pay a lot of money to get the trophy

19 Bahamas Bahamas

I did not know they played soccer

The Bahamas national side would be mad to leave the Bahamas, it's so nice there! No one leaves the Bahamas

They will pull through clutch and win

20 Ireland

I think Ireland will definitely qualify and have a good chance of making the semi final as they have some amazing young players. They beat Italy with an amazing goal in the euros they beat Germany in the euro qualifiers and they nearly defeated the euro 2016 hosts France when the got a goal in the first minutes of the game.

I don't want to hurt or offend Irish people but I doubt will they even qualify or not, But Ireland is now-a-days better Than England.

My name is finley and I love to fight

We beat the USA 4-1 and there 5th here
