Country: Belgium

A Brief Overview

Belgium hasn’t won a significant championship, using their very best World Cup run a 1986 semi-final place. They’ve likely their most gifted squad of time – stuffed with Premier League celebrities – and will be hoping to build quarter-final eliminations in their own previous two championships.

Recent Results

Belgium stormed to the World Cup with nine wins and a draw from 10 qualifiers, completing nine points clear from Greece. Ever since that time they’ve attracted against Mexico, defeated Japan in November and thrashed Saudi Arabia 4-0 – they’re friendly in this round of matches – on Tuesday.

The very prosperous group in World Cup history with five prizes. On a fantastic run of results – like a favourable win over Germany – that they will be seeking to reconstruct that standing following their 7-1 thrashing by the very same opponents in their house championship four decades back. Joint-favourites with Germany to triumph.

Brazil managed an incredible unbeaten run of 17 World Cup qualifiers (just dropping the opening game to Chile) to complete 10 points clear of second-placed Uruguay. Ever since that time they’ve defeated Japan and attracted against England in November, before a 3-0 triumph over Russia and the 1-0 success over the world winners in Berlin.

Country: France

A Brief Overview

France had not managed to lift the world cup since 1998 when they were the host nation. There is no doubt that this time round their team is very talented and the squad includes three of the worlds most expensive players.

Recent Results

France managed a respectable 7 out of 10 wins in the qualifying rounds of the world cup. They also managed top finish top, a total of 4 points above Sweden. It may well be considered a sign that they beat Germany (albeit in a Friendly), but beating the reigning world champions is no small feat.

Nevertheless, they blew a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 at home to Colombia on Friday, before following that up with a 3-1 triumph over Russia.

Country: Germany

A Brief Overview

The recent holders and yet another World Cup will equivalent Brazil’s list of five. They’re rated as the number one group on earth and combined champions, together with Brazil, to raise the trophy in Russia.

Recent Results

Germany won 10 World Cup qualifiers to flee to the summer’s tournament. They had been unbeaten in 22 games after friendly draws against England, France and, on Friday, Spain – but lost 1-0 to Brazil on Tuesday.

Country: Portugal

A Brief Overview

Portugal has attained the semi-finals of this World Cup twice, in 1966 and 2006. They moved out from the 2014 group phases – but come in the championship as European champions. Plus they’ve got Cristiano Ronaldo as their ultimate playmaker!

Recent Results

Portugal squeaked to the World Cup thanks to a 2-0 win over Switzerland in their winner-takes-all final class game. In November they conquered Saudi Arabia and brought with the USA. Just this month, Ronaldo managed to score twice deep into injury time since they overpower Egypt with a 2-1 win. However, they followed up with a hugely unimpressive 3-0 defeat from the Netherlands, which weren’t even qualified.

Country: Spain

A Brief Overview

The 2010 winners were eliminated in the group stages last time, but seem much more powerful heading to the 2018 occasion – culminating in Tuesday’s 6-1 demolition of Argentina. They’re yet to drop in 18 games beneath boss Julen Lopetegui, scoring in every one of these.

Recent Results

Since completing high in a qualifying team comprising Italy, with nine wins and one draw out of 10 matches, Spain has extended their unbeaten streak to 18 games. In November Spain managed a win over Costa Rica as well as pulling off a draw again Russia back in November. Also, they managed to hold on for a draw against Germany who is the current world champions, and also they thumped Argentina 6-1 at home in Madrid.

Country: Argentina

A Brief Overview

Two-time winners Argentina dropped the 2014 closing to Germany. In age 30, this will be the final World Cup at which Lionel Messi will probably be in the summit of his forces – actually, that the Barcelona ahead says he can quit international football after the tournament. They had been ripped apart 6-1 by Spain with no wounded Messi on Tuesday.

Recent Results

Argentina nearly did not qualify. A Messi hat-trick in their final qualifier, a 3-1 win against Ecuador, took them to Russia. In November they conquered the World Cup hosts and dropped to Nigeria in friendlies. And at the current batch of matches – both of which Messi overlooked using a slight injury – they conquer Italy 2-0 without too impressing, before being hammered in Madrid.
