Teams Most Likely to Win the 2018 FIFA World Cup

The Top TenXW

1Argentina

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.

Messi is the best player in the world and he is even better than before the will probably win the next world cup and if they do then people will see that Argentina is the best

It will be Messi's last world cup. It has to be 2018 otherwise I don't think its gonna happen for a long time.

2Germany

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 had an off Euro 2016, despite reaching the semi final, and even a below par qualifying campaign, so I believe with this disappointment will be in the back of their minds which will propel them to fight hard and successfully the title in 2018.

3Brazil

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!

From the ashes will rise the towering "inferno". So shall Brazil will rise from the humiliating agony of defeat to the triumphant thrill of victory. This is only possible if the team remains discipline, cohesive, excellent team-work, individual superb skills and ultimately believe in blessings from heaven above, Almighty GOD.

4United States

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

The USA is growing to become a championship team maybe it will happen on world cup 2018 or 2022 we will see

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

Not true at all

5Netherlands

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

Netherlands have been through so much and definitely got a raw deal in the past but they need to stop being scared to win. Get to the top and don't forget to win this time! Hup Holland!

I hope france win the 2018 fifa world cup but I think the Netherlands will win it the Netherlands lost in 3 finales 1974 losing to west Germany 2-1 1978 losing to argentina 3-1 and 2010 losing to spain 1-0

6England

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.

There is a slight possibility but I think England would probably only get up to the quarter-finals or semi-finals. Though we have a young, bright squad, you never know.

7Mexico

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

I think that if Mexico wants to win the world cup they need to play strong and precise.

8France

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

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

Great Defense and Growing Attack and Midfield.

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

9Portugal

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

Watch out one man show is coming to Moscow to win the FIFA world cup 2018

10Italy

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!

Italian soccer is on its way back.

The Contenders

11Spain

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

Spain are very bad

12Belgium

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

How can Belgium be ranked so low. They are at the top of FIFA's world ranking.

They did well in the euro 2016 competition

V18 Comments
13Uruguay

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

Love La Celeste!

14Chile

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.

They are a strong team with a great coach

They win Copa America 2 times continuous, And also jumped to Top 5 Fifa rankings. They will win World Cup or win at least a Bronze medal.

With Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal any team is a good team but Chile have other good players like Vargas.

They have to beware Argentina, but they have a good team, don't underestimate POLSKA Lewandowski, BÅ‚aschokofski can't spell it and the rest so Finals Lewandowski 5-1 Messi Lewandowski best Striker

16Russia

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

Russian hooligans become more notorious at home. So Russian team can also become more successful at home, I think they can at least make through quarter finals

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

They will be the hosts and they have some talented players

17Colombia

They played amazingly this last FIFA without there best player, they'll surely win this coming next one.

Young talents maturing on their new teams, they'll learn a lot and win it for their country

Rodriguez and falcao have the key

Falcons sucks now

18Croatia

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.

They got two of the best kids in the world

An excellent performance at Euro 2016 group stage. Their depth is top notch. Lots of players to draw from. A key defender Dejan Lovren wasnt called up due to dissagrement with the coach that could have made a difference or two. Excellent midfield line. A team that could with the right tweeking of the team go all the way in WC 2018.

20Ireland

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.

I think Ireland has great youngsters but there not super quality

My name is finley and I love to fight
