It might seem a long way off but you can place a bet at good odds if you are feeling confident about what will happen in 2022 in Qatar.
Holders France are joint favourites with Brazil. The fact that it is being held outside of Europe and Latin America negates the advantage that teams from either region tend to have. After the two favourites come Germany and Spain in the list of the odds.
What about England, though? They are at quite long odds but their recent results have been outstanding. The Three Lions lost 2-1 to Croatia in the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup. More recently, their golden generation of stars crushed Montenegro 7-0, Bulgaria 6-0 and Kosovo 4-0 but lost 2-1 to the Czechs. Stars like Rashford, Sterling and Kane will all be at a good age in 2022, so a repeat of 1966’s triumph could be on the cards.
