1998 World Cup winning team
Marcel Desai, a member of France’s 1998 World Cup winning team, thinks that like South Korea, the host Qatar can present a surprise this time, and can reach the last eight. And Desai is keeping Argentina ahead in the race to win the title.
Desai then added, ‘After 2002, no South American team has won the World Cup. Maybe this is the time of a South American team.
Despite keeping Brazil-Argentina ahead in the list of favorites, Desai is not dismissing the potential of his own country. “Anything can happen in football, that’s the magic of the game,” he said of Kylian Mbappe-Karim Benzema’s chances of winning the World Cup.
