Weekly Competition #37

Last week we asked you to put loyalties aside. We asked who you thought would win the FIFA World Cup, based on what you had seen so far. We asked for good reasoning, which was the perfect opportunity for evidence to come into play.

Some great suggestions were made! Well done to Streatham Wells for keeping their eye on the ball and providing lots of good examples to support their choice. Also well done to St Mary’s and St John’s. A possibly controversial choice ahead of England’s game against Sweden but well-reasoned nonetheless!

This competition is now closed. You can enter the current weekly competition by clicking here.

    in my opinion i think that England is going to win the world cup because so far they have won most of the games that they have played and they have really good players and that might make it easier for them to win.

    I think Sweden might have a chance because they have been very good with Mexico & Korea. They have a good tactics and put a lot of effort into all of their games, even if they were playing ‘easy matches’. It was an amazing win 3-0 to Sweden because Mexico are an very good team. Even if they lost to Germany, their game was still on. Sweden never gives up. This is why I think Sweden is going to win the FIFA WORLD CUP 2018! Good luck Sweden!!!

    i think Brazil are going to win the world cup because they’ve won most of their games and there are teams that don’t want to mess with Brazil like England. I think England lost to Belgium on purpose so they don’t have to play Brazil in the knockout rounds because they no they don’t stand a chance against Brazil. Also, Brazil have really good players like Neymar jr.

    I think Croatia will win because so far they have 12 points and have won all their matches! Also they have good players and players who, if they get a chance to, score most of the goals! Another thing, Croatia plays very hard and never give up fighting for those goals, the last match they played ( Croatia vs Denmark ) was amazing throughout the whole match it was 1/1 then they added 30 mins to the match still 1/1. Then they did pens, 2/2, 3/3, 4/3 and Croatia won they did not give up! … See?

    I think England because they have been performing very well and I think that we must have faith in our country. England players have won quite a few games England will not give up yet still perform well.

    I think England is going to win because Harry Kane and his team are good and they follow the tactics that they have been working on by watching other teams.

    In my opinion I believe that England is going to win the World Cup. I think this because they work as a team and they show the value resilience (never give up) and collaboration (work together).They have been trained really well by their coach.

    We believe the football team that will win the World Cup will be England, Belgium or Croatia because when England played Panama it was 6-1 to England (England won ),however when England played Belgium,Belgium won but ever since then England have won every match and so has Belgium that is why we think this. Croatia was playing many matches, so they will be very talented.

    i think england will win the FIFA world cup because they work really hard not just as individuals but as a team. they never give up and their coach is very supportive which is what a good team needs to succeed.

    I HOPE that France wins the World Cup because they are my favourite country. However, I think that England will win, due to their teamwork and impressive skills. I am very happy that Colombia is out out of the World Cup because they bullied England on Tuesday and were very violent to them.

    I think Croatia will win the world cup because they are twelve points ahead and have won all their matches.England don’t have much chance because they will probably face Brazil and Belgium.

    I think that England will win because they have the right attitude to the game. Unlike Colombia, England played to the rules and they have the right behaviour to go further. I dont just mean England, if every single team had a great attitude this year then the world cup would be so intense.

    In my opinion i think Croatia will win because they have won all of their matches and they work hard as a team and those are the only traits a football team need to have to be successful in football. But England have also got a good shot because they not only have great team-work but they also have very good individuals. Overall i think that Croatia will win because of their amazing team work and their cooperation will bring them right to the top!

    England all the way. They listen to each other and they are a very good team.

    I think France will win the world cup because there players are young and have good potential. Also, Their Nation has a good manager with good tactics. I do think England have been amazing this world cup but I just don’t think that this year will be there year.
