Löw: Brazil Are Favourites

German head coach Joachim Löw believes that hosts Brazil are favourites to lift the World Cup next year on home soil.

The 53-year old coach was asked about who he thought would pose the biggest threat to the German’s quest to win football’s most coveted prize, and Löw mentioned the hosts, Argentina, Colombia, Italy, Spain and Netherlands as potential winners.

"Brazil are the biggest favorites for me,” Löw told ZDF, as reported by GOAL.com.

 “Their strength and energy on home soil gives them something extra. The team is more important than individual class and playing at home is a big advantage for Brazil.”

"However, Argentina have become quite strong again, too, while Colombia are one of the best in the world as well. And of course there are teams like Spain, Italy and Netherlands. Belgium are one of the dark horses, while Japan are Asia's strongest team.”

Löw’s men were drawn in Group C with Portugal, Ghana and the United States.
