Brazil overall favourites but traditionally the South American teams struggle in Europe with only 2 beaten finalists to their names since Brazil won in Sweden in 1958. If you were offering me a free bet I'd take France with maybe Croatia as a live outsider.

In fighting going to prevent Belgium making shapes again??

Stephen Wallace rumoured to be taking over them.

Belgium always strike me as a talented bunch of individuals but not a great team if that makes sense? But if it does click for them they could go close.

Yeah, always good players but underperform.
Martinez no bad manager but getting them to gel cant be easy.

The players not in the France squad is mental and would push most teams close
