2018 has all year been about the World Cup which has finally arrived and excitement is at fever pitch for fans around the world. Most of the star names around the globe will be showcasing their talent for their respective sides.
One Chelsea player who has had a stellar season is Willian who at times was unplayable but did he make the cut for the Brazilians? Take on this quiz and test your World Cup footballing knowledge.
Most of the recent World Cup 2018 betting has been on the Brazilians as they are now the outright 4/1 favourites. This will come as no surprise as they are the most successful side in the history of the competition with 5 victories. They continue to provide some of the greatest footballing talent and who can forget Pele who too many is the best ever. He was part of the greatest generation for Brazil in which they were the dominant force for a little over a decade.
Neymar will be the star name who will be hoping to light up the competition for Brazil. There nearest challengers in the betting are Germany. They are coming in as the defending champions and always perform to very high standards at the major competitions so Russia is set to be no different. Germany are 5/1 with Betfair. So what about England?
England are 16/1 to go all the way and lift the title. This is a fair reflection of their chances when you look at the shocking round of 16 defeat to the hands of Iceland back in 2016. However England have yet to taste defeat since then meaning the squad is 2 years unbeaten going in to Russia which can only been seen as a positive. The squad is full of top class young talent with premier league experience so there is no doubt the team is capable of surprising many people. If captain Harry Kane can bring in his league form in which he scored 30 league goals then there is no doubt England could progress to the latter stages of the competition with the first big clash again Belgium in the group stage.
