    Who will win the 2018 World Cup

    Two days to go - so who do you think will win the 2018 World Cup.

    I don't think there is a strong favourite, though the winner will come from one of four teams, in my opinion. After these four, there's probably another four or five teams that could win it if they perform consistently at a level that they sometimes perform at, but not often enough.

    As always, it's going to be great to watch.

    PS: There's enough ABE threads out there, so if you want to vent your ABE opinion please do so on one of these.

    I've been impressed by Deschamps - I reckon France could do it.

    Brazil for me but spain are the dark horses

    In transition at the last major but rebuilt quietly and effective

    Part of me would like Belgium to win it though as they've got an extremely talented squad

    I'd like it to be a country that's never won it before (Belgium maybe).

    The Champions League and World Cup seems to be won mostly by the same old names.

    If Hertz donít win it for the good of British football then I reckon on France a good squad with a nice blend of youth and experience. Brazil are overrated IMO Germany have been struggling of late, Argentina over rely on Messi, Spain are peasants, England are too inexperienced, Italy arenít even there and every other team is pish

    Russia will have the referees...can you really count them out? South Korea reached a semi-final from it.

    And Brazil has a population approx. 40 times that of Scotland so, by your (sorry Hawkins') logic, Brazil chances mathematically are 40 x 0 which equates to zero. Someone please tell the bookies!

    Germany, Spain, and Brazil seem the obvious choices. I fancy Colombia though.

    Heart says Germany but they need to up their game considerably and I don't see any leaders in this team that will drive them on.

    The Special One has spoken! Jose Mourinho predicts that Brazil will knock England out at the Quarter Final stage. That is good enough for me . ABE.

    I fancy Spain. I think goalkeeper, defence and midfield theyíre better than anyone. Question marks over their front line but if Costa can perform I canít see anyone stopping them.

    Most of the chat I've seen has been focused on Brazil/Messi/Germany/France and Belgium. Dark horse is probably the wrong term, but for me they've flew under the radar a bit until now

    Speculation that the manager will leave his post today...

    i know they are only friendlies but after watching the germans recently i'm taking them off my list of favourites, their defence has been pretty rank, so...Spain or Brazil it is :)
