Qatar 2022: Only one team can challenge them – Rio Ferdinand predicts country to win World Cup

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has predicted England to win this year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

According to Ferdinand, the only team that can challenge the Three Lions in the ongoing World Cup is Brazil.

England will face France in the World Cup quarter-final on Saturday after beating Senegal in the round of 16.

“I watched France play [against Poland] before the England game [against Senegal] and I had them down as one of my favourites,” Ferdinand said on the FIVE YouTube channel.

“But they have got five first-team players missing, so it is a weakened France team. Having watched that game, I hold zero amounts of fear for France. The only fear is Kylian Mbappe.

“If England can contain Mbappe, I don’t see it being a problem against France.

“England are the better team, 100%. I think England are going to win the World Cup.

“The only team I think can go toe-to-toe with England is Brazil. They have got the personality and the characters to do that. They have got hardened European players.”
