The quarry that does not wear out?
El Heraldo of Honduras points out that despite being eliminated in the quarterfinals, Brazil is once again one of the favorites, thanks to its base of young players who will arrive with greater maturity at the Qatar 2022 edition. Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Casemiro, three players with different characteristics but very similar in performance, will be 30 years old. The newspaper also reports as possible candidates the representatives of France, Belgium and Spain, based mainly on the age of its main referents.
Youth is often an important factor in projecting positive cycles. However, we bring it up the editions of France 1998 and Germany 2006 in which the Canarinhos were the favorites. In addition, the team was formed by veteran figures such as Dunga, Taffarel, Bebeto and Aldair in 1998, and Roberto Carlos, Juninho, Dida, Julio César and Emerson in 2006, according to the Los Mundiales de Fútbol.
Why is Brazil always one of the favorites?
Months before Russia 2018, BolaVip referred to Bet365, a firm that bet ahead of Brazil as the candidate to win the competition, leaving Panama as the National Team with fewer chances among the 32 National Teams. Among the Latino teams, Argentina was in fifth place, Uruguay in the tenth, Colombia in eleventh and Mexico in sixteenth place. Even during the last World Cup, the Brazilian National Team was always a favorite until the day of its elimination. After beating Costa Rica 2-0, the Goal portal announced that Brazil was paying 5-1 ahead of Spain, France, Germany and Belgium.
As everyone knows, Brazil is the top winner of World Cups with 5 in total. In addition, it is the country that plays the most colorful soccer and has the honor of having one of the best teams in soccer's history, the team of Mexico's 1970.
According to Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, this is the ranking of other Latin American National Teams among the 20 favorites:
13- * Chile 50-1
