The 2018 Fifa World Cup is set to take place in Moscow, Russia.

With the world-famous World Cup quickly approaching, the BSM soccer fanbase is waiting in bated breath. With so many fantastic soccer teams, showcasing the world’s best players, there is plenty of controversy over who is favored to win the tournament. Of course, historic teams like Germany and Brazil are among the top selected to win, with stars like Joshua Kimmich and Neymar respectively. However, teams like Costa Rica and England, who have performed very well in qualifying, may prove to be strong dark horse candidates for the tournament. 

Although hundreds of sports pundits have thrown their word in as to their pick for the winner, the history of the World Cup has proved that anything can happen. So, any and all picks have the potential to be a winner. To test BSM’s soccer knowledge, we asked 53 Red Knights who they thought would win.

Just for reference, here are the teams eligible to win the tournament include Russia, Brazil, Iran, Japan, Mexico, Belgium, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Germany, England, Spain, Nigeria, Costa Rica, Poland, Egypt,
Iceland, Serbia, Portugal, France, Uruguay, Argentina, Columbia, Panama, Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia, Switzerland, Croatia, Sweden, Denmark, Australia, and Peru.
