    This cup, I can't tell. Brazil is my slight favorite pick due to form in an extremely tough qualifying confederation.

    Most talented though - France by far - but entirely inconsistent.

    Surprise comeback team - Spain, really impressive.

    More than enough talent to win - Belgium - but even more inconsistent than France.

    Extremely talented - Germany.

    In with a shout - Argentina, and less so Uruguay.
    =============
    All that said, my picks to win the WC, in order of likelihood are:

    Brazil - slight favorites
    Germany
    Spain - very close to Germany
    France - would win on paper but too inconsistent to be favorites
    Argentina - Messi can carry this team
    Belgium - chronic under-performers
    ==============
    Well, that's my thinking.

    Who are your top picks for winning the WC?

    Belgium. Spine of the team is superb.

    Love their squad - but they never seem to play up to potential.

    Germany. They just know how to get it done

    Should be Belgium but they've got a clueless pillock in charge

    Their manager is a big reason for this I suspect.

    Brazil have a good chance if Neymar gets fit.

    Spain and Germany both will be there our thereabouts.

    Poland as dark horses.

    Teams that definitely won't win:
    England, France, Belgium, Argentina, Portugal.

    Germany are very strong - and perhaps even stronger than last cup.

    But the field as a whole has improved a lot. Still, would not be surprised if Germany wins it all.
