    I think France will win it this time around.

    Very talented squad and no real weaknesses.

    They may as well give the Trophy to Germany right now Eager to see what Argentina and Brazil in particular are like. Not expecting much from this English team.

    For me its between France and Brazil but will give France slighter edge as their bench of attacking options will open up dull draws which is generally what such tournaments bring.

    England to reach the last four.

    MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin has tipped Argentina, Brazil, Germany and Spain as his top four contenders to win the World Cup, which starts in Russia on June 14.

    Putin says Spain has "played a beautiful brand of football," in an interview with China Media Group, a transcript of which was published on the Kremlin website.

    Can't look past Germany - well oiled and proven team, from top to bottom.

    France with someone more competent at the helm than Deschamps would be my favorites, but given the luck they had at the Euros at home and still failed to seal the deal, not liking their odds here.

    I expect Spain to do well. Wouldn't be surprised if Belgium finally play to their on-paper strength, or if Brazil go all the way.

    Not liking Argentina's odds, really comes down to how much Messi can backpack them.

    Here's a tip....

    ========

    Germany for the World Cup title.

    That’s according to statistical analysis, number crunching and data modeling by economists at Commerzbank, the second-biggest listed lender in, well, Germany. (To be fair, we should note the lead author is London-based Peter Dixon.)

    The tournament, taking place in Russia, kicks off in just over a week and will conclude on July 15. According to Commerzbank, Germany has an 18 percent probability of lifting the trophy, with Brazil the second most likely, just below 13 percent, and Spain, Argentina and France behind that. England has a 6.2 percent chance.

    Big data studies are a regular feature in the buildup to tournaments such as the World Cup. A simulation by Swiss bank UBS published last month also said Germany will win, while a study by the University of Innsbruck says Germany and Brazil will compete in the final, though it gives South American team the edge. It has 16.6 percent probability, just ahead of Germany’s 15.8 percent.

    That would be payback for Brazil’s 7-1 defeat to Germany in the semi-final of the 2014 World Cup.

    The Commerzbank analysis takes into account world rankings, track record at previous World Cups, home bias and number of goals scored in the tournament over the years. Playing at home isn’t the advantage it once was, so hosts Russia are give just a 2.6 percent probability. To account for the inherent randomness in sport, Commerzbank ran 10,000 simulations on each game.

    If Germany do win, they will increase their World Cups to five, matching Brazil’s record. They would also be the first international football team to retain the title in more than half a century. The last team to do so -- in 1962 -- was Brazil.

    But, for all the data in the world, let’s not forget the words of former England striker Gary Lineker.

    “Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.”

    I dreamed 2 nights ago that France beat Germany in Final 1-0

    So France is definitely not winning.

    Brazil have had a slow start, but I expect them to pick up the pace. Neymar for golden ball?

    I have gone for Spain, they play the best football and have the striker in Costa to score in various ways.
