'Brazil Are Favourites To Win The FIFA World Cup'

By Keegan Kruger - Oct 13, 2017 11:32 AM @KeeganKruger

Brazil manager Tite believes his side will be one of the favourites for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, along with two other nations.

Revealed: All Teams That Have Qualified For The World Cup So Far

The Selecao, who beat Chile 3-0 in the final round of the World Cup qualifiers on Wednesday, were one of the first teams to qualify for the competition, finishing 10 points clear of second-placed Uruguay in the South American group.

Tite has acknowledged that Brazil will be earmarked as one of the favourites to win the World Cup, but he backed Germany and France to be right up there too.

"Brazil are a favourite at the World Cup," Tite said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"By the football presented, the campaign completed, by level, performance plus results… Brazil are one of the teams, yes.

"I have said that France are at a very strong level too. Rising players like (Kylian) Mbappe, (Alexandre) Lacazette, (Antoine) Griezmann. Look at the offensive trio.

"And there is also world champions Germany."

The 56-year-old also commented on seeing his country's rivals Argentina make the final cut for the tournament in Russia.

"Argentina deserved to qualify," he added.

"And it's not only one game that defines the team. It's a sequence of regular matches.

"Perhaps Argentina have been benefited by the talent of Messi. His quality... there's no news on talking about Messi's talent."
