Brazil and France both boast a staggering amount of attacking stars within their rosters while Argentina has the arsenal of the great Lionel Messi at the centre of their squad. England, on the other hand, has Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and several other highly regarded European stars who could shine.

1. Brazil
It is a rare thing for Brazil to have such a powerful attack that there is no way to fit all of them in. Neymar is the world's best player this season. The PSG man has scored goals and assisted numerous times this season. In recent months, Vinicius has blossomed into one of the world's best players while Jesus is on the verge of a career-high at Arsenal. Richarlison, who most likely won't even be able to secure a starting position in Qatar, is doing everything he has for the Spurs.

2. France
In this year's World Cup, the French will have a team that is outraged. Benzema has won the Ballon d’Or and carried Real Madrid's attack single-handedly in the past. Meanwhile, Mbappe has been in sublime form this season. The two would form a deadly partnership in Qatar. Furthermore, Nkunku proved himself to be a revelation at RB Leipzig in 2021/2022, contributing 49 goals to the team as a whole.

3. England
It is very likely that the Three Lions will make the most of this upcoming international tournament. They reached the semi-finals in Russia, and the final at the European Championships last summer. Considering some of the improved competition this time, it's going to be a much tougher task for them. Kane is certain to score while Sterling and Grealish are sure to give proceedings enough creativity.

4. Argentina
It is great to see Messi enjoying his last World Cup hoorah in Qatar and making a final bid for glory. Like England, Argentina is also looking very strong. Apart from Messi, Argentina also boasts Di Maria, Martinez, and Dybala. In addition to winning the UEFA Cup of Champions earlier in 2022, Argentina has plenty of positive momentum to carry them forward.

5. Portugal
In the World Cup, Portugal could pose a real challenge for other teams. Ronaldo is probably going to have his last shot at winning the most coveted trophy, and luckily for him, his best team will be there to support him. Leao has been a revelation on the left wing for AC Milan and has already scored nine goals across eight matches this season. As Liverpool forward Jota scored 15 goals last season, Premier League fans will know how lethal he is.

Apart from these, there are a few more teams like Belgium, Germany, Uruguay and Spain which can cause trouble for other teams with their attack in this World Cup. It's going to be, as always, an exciting tournament to look forward to.
