‘Brazil, Argentina are favourites to win 2022 World Cup’
Spain coach Luis Enrique said he considers Argentina and Brazil the favourites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Enrique believes both Argentina and Brazil are far ahead of every other team.
"If some expect us to win all of the games and do so by thrashing our opponents, they know nothing of modern football, Look at France, the  World Cup Champions and  Nations League winners."
The former Barcelona manager stated this during his pre-match press conference ahead of Spain's UEFA Nations League match with the Czech Republic on Sunday in Malaga.
"I see Argentina and Brazil well above all the other national teams," Luis Enrique told a news conference on Saturday. "Well above the rest."
Argentina lifted last year's Copa America title with a 1-0 win in the final over Brazil at the Maracana, their first major title since 1993. The Lionel Messi-led side built on that success earlier this month by claiming a 3-0 victory over Italy in Finalissima.
The two South American sides were unbeaten in the World Cup qualifying, although Brazil finished six points ahead of Argentina in the qualifying table.
Meanwhile, Enrique's Spain side have been unconvincing in this month's international break. The 2010 World Cup winners head into Sunday's Nations League game against the Czech Republic looking for only their second win in the tournament in a 1-0 victory at Switzerland on Thursday.
Spain drew their opening Group A2 games, a 1-1 result against Portugal followed by a 2-2 draw at the Czech Republic.
"If some expect us to win all of the games and do so by thrashing our opponents, they know nothing of modern football," Enrique said. "Look at France, the  World Cup Champions and  Nations League winners."
France are bottom of Group A1 after taking two points from their opening three Nations League games.
