FIFA World Cup Russia 2018: Groups, fixtures… all you need to know

The FIFA World Cup 2018 is just around the corner and we can hardly wait! The world will see 32 teams battle out for one Cup starting on June 14. We’re excited, our friends are excited, even our parents are! Despite World Cup favourites- Italy, Netherlands and Chile- not making it into the competition, it still remains a promising tradition that will undoubtedly see incredible performances and memorable moments. The draw for the summer’s football extravaganza is already over with all eight groups having been decided.
