Who will win FIFA World Cup 2018 Prediction?

Who will win FIFA World Cup 2018 Prediction, Match Review, Expert View:-21st edition of FIFA world cup will be hosted by Russia next year. In 2018 FIFA World Cup 32 teams will participates. There are 8 winners of the FIFA World Cup – Uruguay (twice), Italy (four times), England (once), Brazil (five times), Spain (once), France (once), Germany (four times) and Argentina (twice).
There is hard to predication who will win 2018 FIFA World Cup 2018?We cannot be too sure about Italy. Italy performed very poor in previous fifa world cup.They were knockout in the Group stage in FIFAWorld Cup 2010 and 2014.
England were also knocked out of the Group Phase in World Cup 2014 and were destroyed by Germany in 2010. They have a younger team but with the exception of Wayne Rooney, few world class talents. And had a disastrous Euro 2016 tournament losing incredibly to Iceland in the Round of 16. This was despite their attractive Euro 2016 qualifier situation with 10 out of 10 victories. They have now had two bad tournaments, the worst in their history.
Uruguay are not really a force to be reckoned with as Colombia proved during the defeat of them at the World Cup 2014. They of course have Cavani and Suarez is finally back. But, they had a disappointing Copa America Centernario in the USA, not even reaching the quarter finals.  There are still some question marks but even reaching the Final of World Cup 2018 must be beyond them.
And Spain. Theoretically they have the best team in the world. World class players in just about every position and they don’t even need to play with a striker. The issue is that Vicente Del Bosque and whoever replaces him is struggling with the set up. After a good start in Euro 2016, it all came undone against Croatia and whilst they had a great performance, they were eliminated at the Round of 16 stage. Still some amazing players including some new strikers. But there are doubts. And two consecutive tournament disasters. Anything but a victory for them has to be seen as a disaster.
Looking at the line up of France for Euro 2016, they have a strong team and they may even win that tournament. However as we saw at World Cup 2014 once they come up against the very best, they don’t quite have enough. And Paul Pogba is no Zidane. A playmaker like Platini. They did reach the Final of Euro 2016. But if Germany had had a proper striker, surely France would have lost that game. They also had a very lucky penalty given to them. In the Final, it seemed as if the pressure was too much for them with the young players not able to take control of the game.
I would love to say Spain will win once more. But it may need a new Manager. Pep Guardiola for Spain? Then they are a certainty to win! But he has joined Manchester City and so that is unlikely.

1. England to disappoint (again)

Once again England are breezing through their qualifying campaign, despite some pretty embarrassing off-field headlines involving former manager Sam Allardyce. With Gareth Southgate now at the helm, England have chalked up four wins and a draw without conceding a goal and look like a surefire bet to be in Russia next summer. As we have learnt from past tournaments however, an impressive qualifying campaign doesn’t mean much when the tournament gets underway and if Euro 2016, when England crashed out to minnows Iceland, was anything to go by, we can probably expect England to underwhelm their fans yet again. If the team can get to grips with Southgate’s new system and Dele Alli remains fit for the tournament, England could potentially reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2006, but don’t expect them to get much further.

2. Brazil back to their best

Slowly but surely, Brazilian football looks to be recovering. The five-time champions have already qualified for the tournament, despite the fact that they still have four games left to play. During their qualifying campaign they have chalked up some impressive wins, including a 3-0 victory over Argentina and a 4-1 away drubbing of Columbia. In Neymar they have one of the best players in the world and a leader they can rely upon, and if they can get everyone else on song when the tournament arrives, you can expect them to bury the painful memory of that semi-final against Germany in 2014.

3. Ronaldo’s swansong

Cristiano Ronaldo will be 33 by the time next summer comes around, so it’s safe to assume that this could be the World Player of the Year’s final World Cup. The Portugal captain dragged his team to victory at Euro 2016, doing everything from scoring vital goals to convincing Joao Moutinho to take a penalty when he didn’t fancy it. When injury forced Ronaldo from the field early on in the final, he was on the touchline yelling instructions to his team-mates, willing them to victory. Although some have said Portugal may find it tough going in Russia, if last summer proved anything it was that you can never write Ronaldo and company off. With some impressive youngsters and a strong team ethic, we’re backing the European champions to be among the final few teams still standing at the business end of the tournament.

4. Failure at home?

Traditionally, the World Cup hosts usually receive a bit of a boost thanks to their home fans. It also helps that the host nation are placed in the first pot of the draw, ensuring they avoid some of the favourites in the group stage. All of this may not be enough, however, for a Russian team that is seriously lacking in pace and invention. During Euro 2016 they were slow and laborious, losing 2-1 to Slovakia and 3-0 to Wales on their way to being dumped out in the group stage. This year they host the Confederations Cup which will see them take on Portugal, Mexico and New Zealand in the first round. If they fail in 2017, you can expect much of the same next year.

5. Germany to go far

There are very few bankers when it comes to teams at the World Cup, but Germany are definitely one of them. They have placed third or better at every World Cup since 2002, going all the way and winning it last time around. With Marco Reus, Julian Draxler and Mesut Ozil comprising an intimidating attacking midfield trio, if everyone is fit in Russia, Germany could be hard to stop. Keep your eye out for Julian Weigl too, the Dortmund midfielder has world-class written all over him and by the time the tournament gets underway, he could prove to be a serious challenger for Sami Khedira’s spot.
