The 68-year-old, who stepped down as the Gunners' boss at the end of the past season, has not found a new club just yet, but has been doing some punditry work for various television stations during the global showpiece in the meantime.

The veteran manager, who was at the north London club for 22 years, picked his country of birth, France, as one of his favourites to win the competition, but also feels Brazil and England are in with a good shout.

"My heart favourite is, of course, France," Wenger told beIN SPORTS.

"I said many times that no country under 40 million people has won the World Cup since 1954, since after the Second World War.

"But I ask you, can we get out Belgium, who is a smaller country than 40 million? I think they have the quality.

"Can we have a surprise with Croatia? They have the quality.

"But I would say, at the moment, England – nobody speaks about England, but they are dangerous – Brazil or France."

Towards the end of the interview, the manager was pushed to select just one team out of his three selections.

"If I choose one, it is France," he conceded.
