Who are the favourites to win World Cup 2022?

Holders France are well fancied to mount another serious challenge for World Cup glory, with the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba knowing what it takes to emerge victorious.

Didier Deschamps’ side are 6/1 (7.00) joint-favourites to capture the global crown, with a Brazil side that includes the likes of Neymar, Vinicius Junior and Alisson available at the same price.

England made their way to the semi-finals in 2018, before reaching a final on home soil at Euro 2020, and the Three Lions are 7/1 (8.00) to bring a 56-year wait for international success to a close.

Just behind them at 8/1 (9.00) are 2010 winners Spain, who have an exciting young squad at their disposal, while Germany are always in the mix at events such as this and can be backed at 10/1 (11.00) alongside Argentina – who are hoping to see Lionel Messi land the one major honour that has so far eluded him in a remarkable career.
