Who are the World Cup 2022 favourites now?

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is down to the final eight teams and has just eight games remaining to determine the champion (7 if you exclude the third-place playoff).

Representatives from all five continents started the tournament but now only Europe (5), South America (2) and Africa (1) are left.

In a tournament that has wowed fans with a number of upsets only one took place in the second round, as underdogs Morocco eliminated 2010 champions Spain via a penalty shootout following a 0-0 draw.

Otherwise there were no real surprises as the Netherlands, Brazil, France, England and Portugal were all comfortable winners in their first knockout ties, whilst Argentina beat Australia 2-1 and Croatia narrowly overcame Japan on penalties.

The Quarter-finals are as follows:

Netherlands vs Argentina
Croatia vs Brazil
England vs France
Morocco vs Portugal

The ties will take place on Friday 9 December and Saturday 10 December.

Pre-tournament favourites Brazil remain just that but have seen their odds fall from 10/3 to 7/4 as they will face Netherlands or Argentina in the semi-finals if they beat Croatia as expected first.

France have seen their odds drop from 15/2 third favourites to 4/1 second favourites, replacing Argentina who have fallen back to 6/1, having originally been 11/2 second favourites.

England and Portugal can be found at the same price, whilst the Netherlands are back at 14/1, Morocco 28/1 and Croatia 33/1. Of all the remaining teams, Morocco had the longest odds pre-tournament having been priced at 200/1.

Brazil 7/4
France 4/1
Argentina 6/1
