4 years have passed since we witnessed a sporting carnival, the FIFA world cup. FIFA world cup 2018 offered many goosebumps moments and had all football fans around the globe excited.
France lifted the trophy after an impressive 4-2 win over Croatia in the final in 2018. This time around, it would be hard to predict the FIFA world cup winner, as top teams are well-balanced and the teams that are considered weak, could surprise any opposition on a given day.

There are 8 groups with 4 teams each. The first clash of the tournament will be between the hosts and Ecuador at the Al Bayt Stadium.
