No favourites in Russia World Cup 2018, says Victor Amalraj

  • FIFA World Cup 2018 Opening Ceremony

But such a step could prove problematic for Qatar, already struggling with the pressure of constructing eight new stadiums for the 2022 World Cup, given several countries in the region a year ago severed all ties in an acrimonious diplomatic spat. With Neymar in side one can't discount Brazil.

In terms of individual player quality, perhaps the Brazilians are slightly ahead of the champions, especially with superstar Neymar Jr returning to an offensive line already boasting Phillipe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Gabriel Jesus and Willian, to be supported by a rock-solid and well-organised defensive cadre.

The Manchester City striker opened the scoring with a superb finish before Neymar doubled Brazil's lead in stunning fashion.

"The live studio show Football Extraaa and the breakfast show Kick-Off will enrich the die-hard football enthusiast's viewing experience of 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia", Rajesh Kaul, President, Sports and Distribution Business, Sony Pictures Networks India said. Brazil is in red-hot form after their wins over Germany and Croatia.

This year too, as the Brazilian training ground opened for fans for a single day to watch their stars practice ahead of their departure for warm-ups and Russian Federation, thousands flocked to the stadium, even breaking past security just to get a glimpse of their players.

Should Neymar stay fit, then the PSG forward could mastermind an unprecedented sixth World Cup win this summer under the auspices of Tite.

Pistons hire Dwane Casey
The Detroit Pistons have a new head coach, despite the fact the team doesn't have a general manager or team president. The latter pulled his name from consideration following a second interview, making this the predictable outcome.

Egypt are banking on the availability of Salah as they try to get past the first stage of a World Cup for the first time.

Prior to the match, manager Tite stressed that the aforementioned front four would not necessarily be his guaranteed starting front line for the World Cup, though on initial impressions of the free-flowing panache that they can produce together, he may consider retracting that statement.

Ranked a lowly 70 in the world, Russian Federation have not won for seven consecutive games.

Going into more details, Amalraj said that the team with the most players from one particular club team have the best chance of winning the World Cup and cited the examples of Spain and Germany, who won in 2010 and 2014 respectively.

"I must acknowledge the fact that, unfortunately, our team have not achieved big results in recent times", Putin said last week.
