Paul Merson has backed England to win the 2022 Wold Cup finals in Qatar.
The former Arsenal and England international star believes that the Three Lions have what it takes to go all the way.
England have been placed alongside Wales, the USA and Iran in Group B.
The Three Lions hammered Iran 6-2 in their opening game.
England can be backed at 13/2 on Betfair to win the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
Merson wrote on SportsKeeda: “This is the hardest prediction to make because this is going to be the most open World Cup for many a year. We usually get a four-week break before the World Cup where we see how the teams play.
“Everybody’s telling me that Brazil are the favourites – I haven’t really watched their games. I’m not sure about Argentina as well – Lionel Messi is 34 now, and he didn’t win it at 30 and 26 with better players than he has around him this year.
“I have a case against France as well – they have players like N’Golo Kante missing from their midfield. I like how Spain play with the ball, and I think they could go deep into the tournament this year.
“They’ve picked a young squad and I can see where the manager’s coming from. Portugal also have an all-star team, and I think they’ll do well. I’m going to be bold here and go with England to win the 2022 World Cup.
“Our squad is big – we could play our second eleven against our first eleven and it would be an even game. I like the group England have drawn, and I think they should finish at the top. If they do, they could be playing against Ecuador in the Round of 16, and they’ll fancy their chances against France and Argentina.”
