Les Bleus are 7/1 to retain their 2018 World Cup title in Qatar, with bet365 going 14/1 about England
So the 2018 World Cup has ended, with France victorious after winning no less than six matches in Russia.
Les Bleus were a touch fortunate against Croatia in the final, although Les Bleus are sure to be a leading contender in four years’ time, with bet365 offering 7/1 that Didier Deschamps’ side are victorious again.
It’s possible that Deschamps will stand down before the next World Cup, with the Frenchman having achieved the ultimate goal of landing the Jules Rimet trophy both as a player and manager.
Bet365 make Brazil their 6/1 favourites despite their quarter final defeat against Belgium in the 2018 World Cup, with the Samba Stars likely to have Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino leading the line in Qatar.
Germany are a 7/1 chance and there is likely to be some soul-searching within the Mannschaft camp after a failure to qualify for the knockout stages of the 2018 World Cup.
Joachim Low looks set to continue although we could see several players exit the international stage and we should expect to see Joshua Kimmich and Leroy Sane emerge in their wake.
Spain also appear to be at a crossroads following a disappointing 2018 World Cup where they squeezed through at the group stage only to be beaten on penalties by Russia in the last sixteen.
Argentina come next in the betting although 10/1 makes little appeal about La Albiceleste, while Belgium are a 12/1 poke and could well emerge as a leading world nation on the basis of the 2018 tournament.
England are a 14/1 poke and could represent value if they find improvement after a successful 2018 World Cup, with Italy 16/1 and Croatia a massive 40/1 to achieve success in Qatar.
