Arsene Wenger believes France, Brazil or England will win the World Cup on July 15.

The former Arsenal manager pointed to the fact that a country with a small population size has not been crowned World champions ‘since 1954′.

With 10 teams remaining in the competition and with Germany, Argentina, Portugal and Spain out of the tournament, Wenger has chosen who he thinks will lift the trophy in 12 days’ time.

“My heart favourite is of course France,” he told beIn Sports.

“I said many times that no country under 40million people has won the World Cup since 1954, since after the Second World War.

“But I ask you, can we get out Belgium who is a smaller country than 40m? I think they have the quality.

“Can we have a surprise with Croatia? They have the quality.

“But I would say at the moment England – nobody speaks about England but they are dangerous – Brazil or France.”

When asked to just pick one, the Frenchman said: ‘If I choose one it is France’.
