Messi believes Brazil and France are strong contenders to win the quadrennial tournament as they have a strong core that has been playing together for quite some time.

“The big national teams, Brazil, Germany, France, England, Spain, and I’m sure I’m forgetting some of them,” Messi said (via PSG Talk).

“But if I have to keep one or two, today, I believe that Brazil and France are the two big candidates for this World Cup.”
