The 55-year-old described the Three Lions as a "good footballing side" who have what it takes to challenge for the trophy in Russia.
"Yes, I definitely believe England are good enough to win it. They are forceful, well-organised. I'd like to pay tribute to the team and coach," BBC Sport quotes Andersson as saying.
"They are a good footballing side. I think they would be perfectly able to go all the way"
