in remarks EFE AgencyFormer Dutch international Ronald de Boer predicted Brazil would win the World Cup in Qatar, in the final against Portugal.
The former Ajax and Barcelona midfielder believes his country will do well in the competition, but he puts the Netherlands in third place. “As a Dutchman, I was very happy with this draw. It gives me great pleasure to be in the same group as hosts Qatar, having lived in Doha for seven years. I think my country and Senegal are the favorites to advance in the competition,” said de Boer.
And the expectations of the former player include exciting confrontations from the quarter-finals onwards, with the Netherlands in the semi-finals before falling to Brazil, while France will witness the end of its defense of the world champion title against Portugal. The coach now expects the Brazilians to lift the trophy by defeating Cristiano Ronaldo and his company in the final scheduled for December 18th.
“For me, Brazil are the favorites to win the title. When Brazilian players wear that yellow jersey, something happens in their minds. I think Brazil will be completely ready for this World Cup and on the last day they will lift the trophy again.”
