World Cup: Jack Grealish names country to win trophy, picks two best players
England forward Jack Grealish has tipped Brazil to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The England international also hailed Argentina captain Lionel Messi and France superstar Kylian Mbappe’s performances so far in Qatar.
France has taken all six points from their first two group games at this tournament, beating Australia and Denmark in the process.
Argentina, meanwhile, was beaten by lowly-rated Saudi Arabia in their first game of the tournament but bounced back with a 2-1 victory over Mexico on Saturday.
Messi was outstanding in the second half, producing yet another moment of magic to break the deadlock and set his side on their way to a vital win.
Although Grealish described Messi as "unbelievable," he still believes that Brazil are the favorites in Qatar.
Brazil defeated Serbia in their first game of the tournament and will look to make it two wins from two when they face Switzerland on Monday.
“I watch all the games to be honest..” Grealish told talkSPORT.
“I was watching Messi [against Mexico]. It was unbelievable. So did Mbappe."
“I think Brazil is one of the most impressive I’ve seen so far." If you’re asking me who the biggest threat is, I’d probably say Brazil.
