. Here is a sneak peak of the top contenders for the World Cup.
For Brazil, it’s been a long drought for them since they last lifted the World Cup trophy in 2002. 2014 was the perfect time for Brazil to lift the World Cup trophy for the sixth time but fate decided otherwise as Brazil were humiliated by eventual champions, Germany 7-1 at the semi-final stage. Coming to Russia, Brazil is going to be a wounded lion seeking revenge. The players are there and all what is left is for them to play as a collective unit. If they can play as a collective unit, then the trophy is Brazil’s to lose.
Winning the World Cup is hard enough let alone defending it. Germany will have to do the difficult task of defending the World Cup trophy, something that many nations have failed to do in recent years. However, Germany is a huge favourite for lifting the World Cup trophy despite all this largely as a result of the experience within their ranks. Germany still has the spine of the World Cup winning team in Brazil including Toni Kroos, Manuel Nuer, Mesut Ozil, Thomas Mueller, and Shkrodan Mustafi. In addition, the technical team for Germany is more or less the same with that of 2014 including the manager, Joachim Low.
The golden generation of Belgium will want to be remembered for something in their lives and also in the history of their country. Tournaments don’t come any bigger than the World Cup and Belgium knows lifting the World Cup will make them one of the best teams not only in Belgium but world over. The challenge will no doubt be difficult but if the star players such as Kevin deBryne, Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard, and Romelu Lukaku can come to the party, then Belgium have a huge shot at winning the World Cup trophy.
