Winner of Group D
Brazil won its group with 2 wins and 1 draw. Brazil smashed Germany 4-2 and Saudi Arabia 1-3. The Cariocas failed to win Ivory Coast. We should distinguish the good performance of Richarlison who is the main goalscorer of the tournament with 5 goals.
There is no Mohamed Salah or Elneny within the squad but even with players from the domestic league, Egypt is doing pretty well in the tournament. The Pharaons managed to qualify as the 2nd placed team and left Argentina in the 3rd place with a better goal difference.
We consider Brazil as the main favourite for winning the tournament. Considering the likes of Dani Alves, Cunha, Richarlison and some starts from the domestic league, Cariocas are expected to reach the semi-finals.
