Michel Platini sees Brazil and Argentina as World Cup favouritesThe UEFA president in his playing days
The president of UEFA doesn’t see Germany or Spain as favourites to win the tournament in Brazil this year and instead thinks that South American teams will prove stronger.
"Brazil and Argentina will be very difficult to defeat. The last two World Cups have been by Europeans and I think that bothers South Americans," said Platini in an interview with French daily Le Parisien.
Platini scored 41 goals in 72 appearances for France between 1976 and 1987.
