Russia hosts the 2018 World Cup with the greatest footballing talent on show as the biggest sporting event gets underway. Many premier league players will be key to their sides but did they make the cut? Such as Willian and Mane. Take on the quiz below to test your knowledge.
The latest World Cup betting 2018 has Brazil as the 4/1 favorites which comes as no surprise considering their unrivalled success in the history of the competition with 5 titles to date. With attacking talent such as Neymar and Jesus in your side you are likely to score a lot of goals and are always a danger to any defence.
Looking to the betting it is the current FIFA world cup champions Germany next in at 5/1. This is no surprise as despite possibly not being in top form the Germans have always performed on the biggest stage so this tournament is likely to be no different. There squad is packed with experience which will be a key asset in Russia.
The competition is looking as open as ever so could this be the year England finally challenge for a major trophy AGAIN? Many people would laugh at that statement and odds of 16/1 is a fair reflection of their chances but there is no doubt this is a squad playing with a lot of confidence.
Southgate has picked a squad full of youth and they have continued to perform well throughout preparation. England have yet to lose a football match since that horrible Euro 2016 defeat to Iceland which means they have been unbeaten for an incredible 2 years which is a major indication of where the team is currently at.
We had a solid qualification in which we won 8 of the 10 fixtures with 2 draws. The team continuous to improve and many of the key players have had stellar seasons for their clubs. None more so than England captain Harry Kane who was deadly throughout the season in front of goal. He scored an incredible 30 premier league goals and England will certainly need him to bring that similar form to Russia if they are to be successful. Come on England!
