Will Hughes World Cup Predictions
Who do you think will win?
Will Hughes: It’s a tricky one, isn’t it? I’ll go for Brazil, because if Neymar is fit I think this could be his tournament to shine. It’s a big ‘if’, but it looks as though he’s on his way back.
How will England do?
Will Hughes: I think they’ll do well; I hope so anyway! I think there’s this consensus that England always fail at tournaments, but I’m hoping that they can prove a few doubters wrong this summer. I know Gareth and a few of the lads, and as long as they perform to what they know they can, I don’t see why they can’t go far.
Who will win the Golden Boot?
Will Hughes: Messi, because he’s the best. What else can you say about him really?
Who will win the Golden Ball (best player)?
Will Hughes: Neymar. I’ve got to back up saying Brazil will win it! If he’s fit he’s one of the best in the world.
Which country could be the surprise package?
Will Hughes: England or Belgium. Belgium have got a great squad but it’s never really clicked. They’ve got massive potential and this could be their time.
