World Cup Group A - Predictions

  World Cup Group A - Predictions The 2018 World Cup kicks off on Thursday as hosts Russia face Saudi Arabia in the opening match of the tournament in Moscow. Egypt and Uruguay are the other two sides in the group, which is set to be a hard-fought one. Uruguay are strong favourites to win Group A, boasting players such as Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani but the battle for the second spot is likely to be a competitive one with not too much between the other three sides.

As the opening game of the world’s most watched tournament comes ever closer, we’ve taken a look at the four teams in Group B, and predicted the outcome of every game that will be played between them.

The four teams are Spain, Portugal, Morocco and Iran. A pretty favourable draw for some.

At first ,you would expect Spain and Portugal to qualify with no problems, with the big decider being who claims top spot.

However, this is football and anything can happen at a major tournament. Both Iran and Morocco have made statements saying they will “fight for their lives” so it would be foolish to rule them out, plus, Spain sacking their manager just a day before the tournament has thrown a huge spanner in the works.

World Cup Group C - Predictions

  World Cup Group C - Predictions It’s a given that the World Cup in Russia will have its favourites and France are one of the nations expected to go close this year. Their group, however, could provide some of the most competitive fixtures of the whole tournament, with Peru, Australia and Denmark all looking to progress to the knockout stages. France will be expected to top the group and with the squad that they possess, it’s no surprise. The rest of Group C will no doubt know that France are by far the strongest side on paper, but they are sure to enter the tournament with no fear and a firm belief that they can take up one of the top two qualification places in the group. Let’s not forget the French misery in the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea, where Thierry Henry, Zinedine Zidane and co. missed out on qualification to the knockout stages at the expense of Senegal and this year’s group opponents Denmark, who topped the group 16 years ago. How will Group C pan out this year in Russia? Let’s take a look.

Here’s how we see the group shaping up.

Everton not interested in £16m Plattenhardt deal .
Everton are not interested in signing Marvin Plattenhardt from Hertha Berlin, according to the Liverpool Echo. The report has played down suggestions that the German international could be on his way to Goodison Park after this summer’s World Cup. Interest is expected to rise in Plattenhardt during the World Cup, but Everton are unlikely to be in the running to sign him. Prior to Germany’s opening game at the tournament, the defender was being linked with a £16 million move. Plattenhardt impressed in the Bundesliga last season, earning a call-up the German squad for this summer’s World Cup. However, he could not help the German squad get over the line in their first match of the tournament, as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Mexico. It had been claimed that Marco Silva could be looking to upgrade on the ageing Leighton Baines. The Toffees are yet to make a signing this summer, with Silva keen to put his own stamp on the squad.
