Can Saka, White and Rambo win the World Cup with England?

So the World Cup has finally kicked off in Qatar despite being mired in controversy, with Ecuador the deserved winners over the hosts, but for an opening game it is just a savoury before the main course.

It is probably one of the most open tournaments in decades and it could be seriously influenced by the added heat and humidity causing fatigue for Europeans, so it is little surprise that Brazil and Argentina are the two favourites before the big games begin.

France, Spain, England and Germany are the next ones in the betting, but do you think any of those have good enough form and could end up with the covered trophy?

The Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger, who is still very involved with European football with his role at UEFA, doesn’t think Southgate’s Lions can go all the way. He told the Sun: “If you look at the last few years, England should be in the semi-finals at least,”

“They got to the semi-finals in Russia and then the Final in the Euros.

“But the doubt comes from what has happened over the past year.

“If they can get over that doubt in their own minds, they have the team that is good enough to reach the semi-finals.

“In Russia four years ago it was all about a deep defensive line and counter-attacking.

“This time it will be about the high press, the teams that can play out and have that courage, or the ones who go long.

“I expect to see the teams who want the ball being the most successful.

“But this is also a last chance tournament for the players who have dominated football for the last 15 years.

“You think about Ronaldo and Messi but there is also Neymar, Modric and Lewandowski, and some others.

“There will not be another World Cup for them. It’s now or never.

“This is that last opportunity to show the world they deserve to win it, and so these big players will have pressure on their shoulders and we will see how they cope with that.”

So he hasn’t stuck his neck out and actually given us his opinion of who will eventually win it, but what do Arsenal fans think?

Could England go all the way and make up for losing on penalties in the Euros?

  1. If Southgate has the balls to use Arteta’s inverted LB tactic, I’m sure England will win the World Cup. I think Shaw/ Trippier can play that role and Kane/ Sterling/ Foden/ Saka are perfect for the left overload tactic

    However, I bet Southgate will start with a highly cautious approach, using a three-CB formation. If England don’t meet Spain and Germany until yhe final, they will have a very good chance to lift the trophy

    1. Apparently the team as already been leaked
      4-3-3
      Maguire starts ,having played one PL game all season and saka is picked ahead of foden and Jude also starts .
      That’s what sky sports are reporting .
      Answer to the headline ,a big NO .

      1. Also having tuned into BBC at 3 pm yesterday and turning it off at 3.10 pm after having to listen to lineker ,shearer and Alex Scott I can honestly say I don’t think I’ll be watching much of it TBH and that was before the football had even started .

        1. Totally agree, what those 3 came out with was nauseating, don’t know which is worse but Alex Scott must rank highly as the worst pundit on bbc…

      2. I hope Maguire won’t have a brain fart. He is great in set-pieces, but I think he’s better in a three-CB formation than plyaing with only one CB partner

        Saka is a great choice for the right wing. I’m sure he’ll be productive in the tournament

  2. Do not understand the headlines.
    When has Rambo played for England? He plays for Wales.
    Unless there is an English Rambo that I am missing, the headlines need altering.

  3. Yes they can, going by the last two major tournaments.
    We have some of the best players in the world and saka is one of them. I think other countries rate out chances of winning the WC more then the fans of this country.. just need a bit of luck 🤞💪

  4. England will win the world. cup

    we have a 2 billion squad and heaps of world class players

    Kane world class scorer

    players like Gealish, Mount, Foden, Rashford etc…they control and dictate games

    not to mention the world class defenders we have
