The Peruvians who are positioned eleventh on the planet – two places in front of England – have been given a 5% possibility of lifting the trophy in Moscow on 15 July, while Gareth Southgate's side has a 4% shot, the same as Belgium and Portugal. 

World Cup Russia 

Britain has less shot of winning the Fifa World Cup than Peru, as indicated by sports information organisation Gracenote. Five-time champions Brazil are top picks with a 21% possibility of winning the competition, in front of Spain, Germany, and Argentina.  

So how far will England get? 

Britain faces Tunisia, Panama, and Belgium in Group G and they have a 71% possibility of achieving the thump out rounds. That computation depends on one million reenactments of the World Cup keep running by Gracenote, with focuses granted for each match because of the likelihood of a win/draw/overcome because of the positioning of each side. 

If they qualify from Group G, England will confront either Poland, Senegal, Colombia or Japan from Group H in the last 16 and are anticipated to have a 41% possibility of advancing. 

However, their chances tumble in the quarter-finals – where they could confront any semblance of Germany or Brazil – with an 18% shot of achieving the semis and 9% possibility of making the last. 

Shouldn't something be said about the rest? 

  1. There is a 47% shot of a first-time victor, so somebody other than Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, Spain, England or Uruguay. 

  2. Latin American and European groups will rule, with 10 of the last 16 being from Europe, five from South America and one from Central America. 

  3. African side Senegal, in Group H, have a 45% shot of thinking outside the box and fitting the bill for the last 16 

  4. Peru, who are playing at the World Cup out of the blue since 1982, is tipped to be this present competition's unexpected bundles with a 22% opportunity to be in the last four. 

  5. Colombia has a 21% possibility of achieving the semis.
