Who Could be the Stars of the World Cup 2026?
The upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup that’s scheduled to get underway in June (official start date TBD) in Canada, Mexico, and the United States is still a long way away, but here are some names that are most likely to shine throughout the tournament.
Where and when is the FIFA World Cup 2026?
The 2026 FIFA World Cup will be hosted in three nations – Canada, Mexico, and the United States from June to July 2026. A total of 48 teams from 6 confederations will make the finals, with Canada, Mexico, and the USA already guaranteed a spot in the tournament.
Which players will most likely shine at the FIFA World Cup?
It’s hard to tell which teams will even qualify for the FIFA World Cup. However, if everything goes as expected (which doesn’t always happen in football), the ten players that will most likely shine throughout the tournament are the following.
- Erling Haaland – Norway
- Kylian Mbappé – France
- Rafael Leão – Portugal
- Jude Bellingham – England
- Gabriel Martinelli – Brazil
- Roméo Lavia – Belgium
- Gio Reyna – United States of America
- Youssoufa Moukoko – Germany
- Joško Gvardiol – Croatia
- Enzo Fernández – Argentina
Other players to watch in the 2026 Fifa World Cup are Vincius Jr. (Brazil), Marcus Rashford (England), Pedri (Spain), and Gavi (Spain).
Where can I bet on the World Cup?
Only a handful of licensed sports betting sites have started offering World Cup betting markets, but these markets and the odds are likely to change a great deal between now and the start of the tournament.
If you already have an account at 32red, go to the 32red sport login page and head straight to the football betting section for the latest markets with the most competitive odds.
Which team has the best chance of winning the World Cup?
The best thing to do would be to look at the odds closer. The odds will give you a better idea of which team will come out on top. However, don’t forget that some of these teams may not even qualify.
If you look at the latest average FIFA World Cup 2026 betting odds, you will see that Brazil and France are the two jointly priced odds-on favourite teams to win the tournament. They are both priced at 6/1 in the UK fractional odds format, which means they have a 14.30% implied probability rate of winning.
When you convert 6/1 fractional odds into American/moneyline odds and European decimal odds, it works out to 600 and 7.00, respectively. Let’s take a look at the latest odds for several other teams:
- England – 8/1 (which is 800 or 9.00, depending on which odds format you prefer), with an 11.10% implied probability rate
- Spain – 9/1 (900, or 10.00), with a 10.00% implied probability rate
- Argentina – 10/1 (1,000, or 11.00), with a 9.10% implied probability rate
- Germany – 10/1 (1,000, or 11.00), with a 9.10% implied probability rate
- Portugal – 15/1 (1,500, or 16.00), with a 6.30% implied probability rate
- Italy – 17/1 (1,700, or 18.00), with a 5.60% implied probability rate
- Netherlands – 17/1 (1,700, or 18.00), with a 5.60% implied probability rate
- Belgium – 30/1 (3,000, or 31.00), with a 3.20% implied probability rate
It’s far too early to say which team will win the 2026 FIFA World Cup because so much can happen between now and the start of the tournament. Before placing a real money wager on any upcoming world cup markets, the best thing to do is wait until more accurate odds are released.
The tournament qualifiers worldwide will be starting soon, so perhaps it would be a good idea to wait until we find out exactly who will be playing in the finals before betting.Read all news »
