Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany has backed Cristiano Ronaldo to win the Golden Boot at the 2022 FIFA World Cup but doesn’t expect Portugal to achieve glory.
Kompany told ESPN: “Do you know what…Portugal has a strong team so could it (Golden Boot winner) be Cristiano Ronaldo.”
Kompany then made his prediction for who will win the FIFA World Cup:
“Who I think is going to win it? I hope Belgium but I have to say like 4 years ago, I would have thought that by now, England and France would have been even more favourites because they went into the 2018 WC quite young.”
He added: “But looking now and I look at teams like Brazil and Portugal have got a sneaky team, the players that they’ve got are quite impressive…but I’ll go for Brazil though.”
