A World Cup to do good in Russia

A World Cup to do good in Russia

The 2010 World Cup winners Spain were placed in the same group as Cristiano Ronaldo's European Champions Portugal in an exciting draw for the 2018 tournament in Russia on Friday. I also have the best player in history, that's always a plus. Didier Deschamps and his players wanted to avoid Spain or England from Pot 2 and were hoping for a draw that would enable them to get stronger through the group stage to reach full strength for the Round of 16.

The draw for the group stage will take place from 3pm GMT on Friday, December 1, in the Kremlin Palace, just off Red Square in Moscow.

Group B also includes Morocco and Iran.Iceland, the country with the smallest population of the 32 World Cup teams, was drawn with Argentina, Croatia and Nigeria in Group D.

The teams will be divided into eight groups of four teams each.

"We will do everything to make it a major sporting festival", he said, looking forward to a World Cup of "friendship and fair play, values that do not change with time".

IST: The drawing assistants are getting ready for the final draw. "(Argentina) are the favourites of course but we won't roll over".

COACH: Stanislav Cherchesov - After experiments with expensive foreign recruits like Fabio Capello and Guus Hiddink, Russia goes into the World Cup with a dour, defense-first former goalkeeper.

"There's no truth to that", Unger replied.

This young Super Eagles squad continue to improve under the tutelage of Gernot Rohr; they're unified, and confidence is high after they swept all before them in qualifying from the Group of Death.

The BBC star seemed to have had a dramatic change of heart and his 2012 tweet that attacked football governing body Fifa¿s decision to award the tournament to Russia as ¿ever more ludicrous¿ appeared to have been deleted

The group, with Sweden and South Korea in addition to Germany and Mexico, looks manageable.

Certainly, nobody will want to have Nigeria picked out from Pot. "It's a tough group and we have to work really hard".

Footballing legends Carles Puyol and Diego Maradona are all gearing up for the Final Draw.

But all of the host cities have their attractions and all are well connected by air, train and road from Moscow.

"It could have happened, but in my case it never did, ever".

A typically lavish ceremony will take place in the State Kremlin Palace, which was built in 1961 and has a capacity of 6,000.

The reintroduction of the enigmatic Shikabala suggests that Hector Cuper is keen to redress this problem.

Who is in the pots?

It's worth remembering, though, that this World Cup had not been awarded to Russia in any less scrupulous conditions than previous ones.
