They've got insane depth in every position and according to The Analyst's model, that'll prove to be the difference once again.

Using an algorithm which simulated the entire tournament 1000 times, Les Bleus were ranked as the most likely winners with 17.93 per cent probability. If they retain the World Cup, they'll join Brazil and Italy as the only nations to do so.

Brazil come in second and they have their own squad of superstars. Their last World Cup triumph was 2002 and Tite's men have a 15.73 per cent chance in Qatar.

Spain are the only other team with probability in double digits, sitting at 11.53 per cent.

Where does this leave Euro 2020 finalists England? The Three Lions are fourth, but behind Spain by a fair distance. Gareth Southgate's chances of ending 56 years of hurt sit at 8.03 per cent.

Belgium make up the top five with 7.90 per cent as their 'Golden Generation' enter their twilight.
