So who do you think will bring home the cup this
time?! Let's tell you about the top two teams that
go as huge favourites into this competition.
The winners of the last World Cup are huge favourites
to successfully defend their title this time around.
However, please be aware that the World Cup title
has been retained only twice in the history of the
competition. The team that had last won the tournament
successively was Brazil in the years 1958 and 1962.
It was a time when they boasted of players like Garrincha
and Pele. But is it possible to pull that feat today?
Let's find out.
The German team of today is quite different from
the one that won the last World Cup. It has youngsters
like Timo Werner and Leroy Sane who've done a lot
of hard work to come up the ranks. The former stars
like Miroslav Klose are nowhere to be seen. However,
if you look closely, you'll notice that this new breed
of German players is equally good.
everyone they faced during the qualification games,
winning all their 10 games comprehensively. You could
argue that they had an easy group, but it's still
an impressive feat considering they scored a total
of 43 goals and conceded only 4. Managed and coached
by Joachim Loew, who's been around for 12 years now,
the German team is very confident about their chances.
Everyone is rooting for Brazil to go all out and
bring home the World Cup this time. Despite having
played the hosts in the last World Cup, Brazil couldn't
go past the semi-final after they were humiliated
by the ruthless Germans, with a score line of 7-1.
That loss completely shattered their spirits and they
even lost the match for third place against the Dutch
Brazilians reflected after the defeat and Tite came
in as the new manager. Their football team has gone
from strength to strength ever since that thrashing.
With players like Neymar, Coutinho, Jesus and Renato
Augusto, they look like a very solid side going into
this World Cup.
They won their qualifying group by 10 points, scoring
41 goals in total and conceding only 11.
