England 9/1 to win the 2026 World Cup

England are 9/1 to win the 2026 World Cup, while 2022 winners Argentina are fourth favourites to retain their crown.

Who are the favourites to win the 2026 World Cup?

Brazil are the favourites to win the 2026 World Cup despite crashing out at the quarter-final stage in Qatar against 3rd place finishers Croatia.

Beaten finalists France can be backed at 7/1 (worst price 5/1). Kylian Mbappe, the first man to score a World Cup final hat-trick since Geoff Hurst in 1966, will be 27 when the tournament returns.

What are the odds for England to win the 2026 World Cup?

England are third favourites at a best price of 9/1 (7/1 with one bookmaker).

The bookies obviously believe that the Three Lions' latest 'golden generation' including Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden is geared up to peak in Canada, Mexico and the US.

Lionel Messi is unlikely to be there at the age of 39 - despite not closing the door on his international future - but his team have been given a 10/1 chance.

Hansi Flick's Germany are 10/1 to bounce back from a group stage exit in Qatar, while currently managerless Spain are 11/1 but 8/1 with one bookmaker.

And what about some notable outsiders?

Roberto Mancini's Italy are 14/1 with one bookmaker (22/1 best price) despite failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

Belgium, still the number four ranked team in the world despite disappointing in Qatar, have an eye-catching best price of 33/1. 

Another ageing team to be written off is Croatia, who can be found at 50/1 despite their exploits at the last two tournaments.
