Ericsson names England to win the 2022 World Cup

London: Sven-Goran Eriksson, former coach of the English football team, believes the team (of the Three Lions) is the “most likely candidate” to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. And the team of coach Gareth Southgate reached the semifinals of the last World Cup, held in Russia in 2018, which equates to England’s best effort in the World Cup since winning the title when hosting the tournament in 1966. Then England first appeared in the final of a major tournament since 1966, when last year he faced Italy in the Nations Cup final (Euro 2020), but lost on penalties. Eriksson had coached England in the 2002 and 2006 World Cup finals and had qualified for the quarter-finals respectively. in both editions and had also qualified for the same round at (Euro 2004). Ericsson failed to lead England to the World Cup despite having a “golden generation” at the time, having lost in 2002 to Brazil, then to Portugal at Euro 2004 and the 2006 World Cup. But the Swede believes that the Southgate team has the right to be considered among the favorite to win the World Cup, and in fact he sees her as the favorite in absolute, to succeed in Qatar by the end of the year. “I think they are one of the great teams that can win the World Cup and perhaps they are the most likely candidates to win the title,” Ericsson told Stats Performance for sports data and analysis. “I’m not sure how strong Brazil and Argentina are in this moment, but in Europe (there is no Italy) “, added Ericsson. Even Spain, in my opinion, are not good enough to win the World Cup. Germany, no one will ever know what they can do. Belgium, always a good team. Ericsson believes furthermore that England should easily pass from Group B, as they were designed by Iran, the United States, Ukraine, Scotland and Wales. “The group with England includes Iran, the United States, then Ukraine, Scotland or Wales”, Erikson pointed out, I mean, it’s always difficult in a World Cup group stage, but I don’t see they won’t be in lead that group. “” It’s impossible, “he said. They will easily win the head of the group. Then it always depends on who they play in the next round, and then if you win there you go to the quarter-finals.” “So, with a little luck and no injuries, with some important players and so on viaEngland can do it, “he concluded.
