‘Brazilian Neymar will overshadow Ronaldo and Messi’s farewell at the World Cup’


@ Marc Andy via WK WhatsApp group:

“Brazil will win the World Cup. It’s been 20 years since the Ronaldo Show and for a football country like Brazil, where football is a religion, 20 years is a very long time.

“There’s the in-form trio of Neymar, Vinicius and Richarlison who can score goals from scratch. Goals win games.

“The Seleção is extremely balanced and plays with the utmost confidence these days.

“It is said that defense gets you titles and in Alison Becker, Brazil has the best goalkeeper in the world. Thiago Silva is aging like fine wine. He is older, wiser, fitter and more confident these days. The captain leads the defense impeccably.

The midfield is filled with streetwise and hard-working players. What it lacks in creativity it makes up for in the final third with a plethora of eye-catching prowess.

“Coach Tite will certainly have a very difficult time choosing the players who will partner Neymar up front and, unfortunately for others, Samba’s forwards have all been in blistering form.

“It’s Seleção’s World Cup to lose.”

@Martin Bakker:

Argentina will entertain us with a brave sending off for Messi, but Brazil’s World Cup pedigree will shine through. The engine room in midfield of Bruno Guimarães and Paqueta next to Casemiro will be key. They have the best two goalkeepers in the world behind Silva et al on defense.

“Neymar is a man for the biggest podium of all and despite his lesser form at club level in recent years, I think he will overshadow the farewell to Ronaldo and Messi in this tournament. Martinelli and Raphinha could be major threats if the manager ball used.” shift and substitutions well to overcome fatigue as games progress.

“It’s not about starting the line-up in Qatar, it’s about team strength and super substitutions. Brazil is a solid team and if Neymar uses that I don’t see anybody beating them.”

@Rodolfo Costa:

“I think Brazil will win the World Cup. Brazil only lacks full-backs, but has a strong team in all other positions. The manager, Tite, has also developed his work with the national team. It will not be an easy task.” World Cup for Brazil, but I understand the Brazilian national team is the favourite. As a Brazilian, I am afraid of this, as the country has never won the tournament as a favorite.”

Argentina: “This is Messi’s last hurray and with the best Argentina team in decades”

Led by the experienced and irrepressible Lionel Messi, Telegraph readers believed that a World Cup victory in Argentina would be a fitting end to an extraordinary career for their captain. Others also highlight how Argentina’s shock defeat to Saudi Arabia could actually benefit them.

@John Tierney:

“Because Argentina lost, they will probably finish second in their group. This will move them to the bottom half of the tournament for the knockout stage. If Brazil win their group, they will remain in the expected top half.”

“It is very useful for Argentina to have lost.”


“It has to be Argentina. It would be an unfair representation of the greatest player of all time if he didn’t have a World Cup in his trophy cabinet. This is Messi’s last World Cup hurray and with the best Argentina side in decades.” around him (as well as Messi himself who is in great form), I struggle to see beyond them. For example, Martinez is well suited for international football, Julian Alvarez is an incredible talent and Enzo Fernandes has caught the attention of most of the top Premier League clubs. If England don’t win, it would be a fitting climax to an incredible career for Messi.”

@Ajitkumar Rai:

“Argentina will be the champions because they have more experienced players, with Lionel Messi in charge of the team. The game itself will be played in the hot weather, which will give them an advantage compared to European teams. They are also the current Copa America champion, which is a plus.” point for their morals. They have a good team with top attackers and solid defenders as well as experienced midfielders.”

England: ‘The team has the perfect combination of youth and experience’

For others, the England team – with a mix of youth and experience – is capable of winning the World Cup. Some argue that the focus on Qatar’s politics and England’s recent poor performance outside the tournament has lowered expectations and could work to their advantage.
