Value ratings and World Cup chances

England is the most expensive squad going into the World Cup. Hardly will this rating translate into a superior performance in the tournament.

Although the Three Lions are expected to qualify from their Group and possibly win the Group, they are not among the top favorites to win the competition.

The likes of Argentina, Brazil, Germany, and Spain enjoy a pride of place as top favorites to win the tournament in Qatar.

However, with world-class midfielders like Jude Bellingham in the squad and Harry Kane, the Three Lions are not expected to chicken out of the competition quickly .
