Spain coach Luis Enrique said he considers Argentina and Brazil his two favorites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Enrique believes both Argentina and Brazil are ahead of every other team.

“If some people expect us to win all the games and do so by beating our opponents, they know nothing about modern football, look at France, [2018] World Cup Champion and [2021] Nations League Champion. “

The former Barcelona manager made this statement during his pre-match press conference ahead of Spain’s UEFA Nations League match against the Czech Republic on Sunday in Malaga.

“I see Argentina and Brazil as superior to all other national teams” Luis Enrique said during a press conference on Saturday. “Better than the rest.”

Argentina lifted the Copa America title last year with a 1-0 final win over Brazil at the Maracana, their first major title since 1993. The Lionel Messi-led team built on that success. earlier this month with a 3-0 win over Italy in Finalissima.

The two South American teams were undefeated in World Cup qualifying, although Brazil were six points ahead of Argentina in the qualifying group.

Meanwhile, Enrique’s Spain played unconvincingly during this month’s international break. The 2010 World Cup champions enter Sunday’s Nations League match against the Czech Republic in search of their second win of the tournament in a 1-0 win over Switzerland on Thursday.

Spain drew the opening matches of Group A2, 1-1 against Portugal, then drew the Czech Republic 2-2.

“If some people expect us to win all the games and do so by beating our opponents, they know nothing about modern football,” said Enrique. “Look at France, [2018] World Cup Champion and [2021] Nations League Champion. “

France are bottom of Group A1 after picking up two points from their opening three games in the Nations League.
