The quadrennial Mundial is taking place in the latter part of the year for the first time and various Nations will have their eyes on the ultimate prize.
In an interview with Marca, Matthaus, a 1990 FIFA World Cup winner as West Germany’s captain, named the countries he believes are most likely to win the forthcoming 2022 World Cup alongside his native Germany.
“One of them but along with Argentina, Spain, France… there are six or seven,” Matthaus who currently works as a television pundit told Marca.
“Brazil as well. You have to look at the whole squad, not just the starting eleven.
“There are always surprises and this World Cup will be a little different, with the players in top form.
“It’ll be better than a summer World Cup.”
Matthaus won the Italia 90 World Cup with Germany, defeating Argentina 1-0 in the final at Stadio Olympico in Rome.
