Roy Keane, Gary Neville and Micah Richards have predicted the rest of the 2022 World Cup and they think France will eliminate England.
The Three Lions meet France in a blockbuster showdown on Saturday for a spot in the semi-finals.
They also believe Argentina, Brazil and Portugal will see off the Netherlands, Croatia and Morocco respectively.
Keane, Neville and Richards continued by predicting Brazil to beat Argentina and France to defeat Portugal to set up a Brazil vs. France final.
And they've tipped Tite's star-studded team to raise gold on December 18 to claim a sixth World Cup in their nation's history.

Netherlands vs. Argentina
Keane: "I’m gonna go with Argentina, we’ve said it all along. Netherlands have been fine, but Argentina have got momentum after a really shocking start - and they’ve got Messi on the pitch."
Neville: "I've watched Argentina three times. Other than Messi, I think they’re really average but you get the feeling they’ll do anything to win.
"They’ve got a little bit of the devil in them and then they’ve got the guy up front [Messi] who is just unbelievable.
"I’ll go Netherlands because I feel like if one team can structurally keep Messi out, they’ll win."
Richards: "So I get the deciding vote? We want Argentina v Brazil [in the semi-finals]. I’m getting Argentina up there!"
Croatia vs. Brazil
Neville: "All day long, Brazil!"
Keane: "Croatia have got that fighting spirit. It won’t be enough, though."
Richards: "Yeah, Casemiro’s been brilliant and Paqueta’s been class!"
England vs. France
Neville: "If England play France with their current teams 10 times, I think France win six or seven."
Keane: "Kylian Mbappe’s the best player in the world, although I think England’s attacking players will get a bit of joy."
Richards: "I’m 50/50. I think the game all depends on the first goal."
Neville: "I hope we’re wrong."
Morocco vs. Portugal
Richards: "Well this is one quarter-final we didn’t predict!"
Neville: "How good was [Goncalo] Ramos, by the way [in Portugal’s last-16 victory over Switzerland]? To come from nowhere after just 30 minutes of international football is stunning!"
Keane: "And then you’ve [Cristiano] Ronaldo off the bench!"
Neville: "He could come on and win the tournament for Portugal. I hope he does! If England don’t win it, I’d like Ronaldo to win the tournament."
Keane: "We’re going Portugal, aren’t we?"
Argentina vs. Brazil
Richards: "This is where it gets tasty! It’s too hard to pick this, isn’t it?"
Neville: "I want Brazil to win. They’re the better team. They play with more flair. I wanna see the dancing again and just see how that goes!"
Keane: "I’ve gone off Brazil because of the dancing!"
Neville: "It’s a game that’s gonna be watched by every football fan around the world, bar none."
France vs. Portugal
Keane: "I’m sticking with France so it’s up to yourselves..."
Neville: "If I’m knocking England out, then I’m going with France."
Brazil vs. France
Neville: "There she is. What a final. Mbappe versus Neymar. I think Brazil are winning this World Cup."
Richards: "Yeah, they’ve got the best team."
Keane: "They’re the best dancers!"
Richards: "Come on Roy. Give us a jig. You said it was all it the hips, right?"
Richards: "So what are we saying? The winners..."
Keane: "I’ll forgive them for the dancing if they win the final!"
Neville: "I hope we’re wrong, by the way, and England end up in the middle there."
