As for history, Lionel Messi has already made it known this will be his last World Cup for Argentina, who are among the favorites to win the tournament even though they lost their first match against Saudi Arabia. After winning his first international trophy by winning the 2021 Copa America with Argentina, there would be no better way for Messi to leave than a World Cup title. Ronaldo has not announced that this will be his last World Cup, but the Portuguese forward will be 41 years old by the time the next World Cup begins. It’s safe to say that Father Time is unbeatable.

France — without Karim Benzema, Christopher Nkunku, N’Golo Kante AND Paul Pogba — will look to rise above their injuries and off-field drama to make a run at defending their title from 2018, but with talented England and Brazil teams, the French will have strong competition for the trophy. The United States will also be happy to advance from the group stage after a disappointing friendly series leading into the World Cup.
