FIFA World Cup 2018: Groups, Matches, Timings and all that you need to know

World Cup

It has been four years since Germany lifted the World Cup defeating Lionel Messi and Argentina in the final in 2014. Much has changed since then and it is again time for the mega-event to kick off, this time at Russia. 32 teams will battle it out on the field with only one aim in mind and that is to get their hands on the World Cup trophy.

This year there have been some notable surprises during the qualifying stages as big guns such as Italy, Chile and Netherlands failed to make it to FIFA’s flagship event. But there won’t be any shortage of drama as teams like Brazil, Argentina, England, Portugal, France, Germany, Spain, and Uruguay have successfully made it to the World Cup finals.
