Croatia midfielder, Luka Modric has named Argentina as the favourite country to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Modric said Argentina are more united with Lionel Messi leading the team, adding that they have not lost many games in the past.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup will start on Monday, November 21, at the Al Thumama Stadium.
Argentina are in Group C in the 2022 World Cup and will face Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Poland.
But Modric feels Argentina are more ‘united’ than ever before and with Messi as the ‘head’ of the side, they could go all the way to win the 2022 World Cup.
Speaking to ESPN, the Real Madrid star said: “We played against Argentina in the last World Cup and we won. What I see now is a very good team, it seems to me stronger than a few years ago.
“They have a good group, they created a very strong group with Messi at the head, who is a different player.”
He added, “They are more united. They have not lost many games. That says a lot. Having Messi, they are always one of the favorites to win the World Cup.”
