Nigeria head coach, Jose Peseiro has picked his native country, Portugal and defending champions France as favourites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup, PNO Sports reports.

France head into finals looking to win a third title.

La Selecao of Portugal on the other hand are keen to rule the world for the first time.

Peseiro believed that France and Portugal have what it takes to conquer the world.

“The individual quality of these players is tremendous, and so is the competitive level.

“Our coaches and players did not have this dimension,” Peseiro told reporters.

“That’s why I say it’s the selection with more solutions and more quality.

“Apart from France, which may be the most favorite, there’s no one else you can say that to. Being world champion is more open.”
