FIFA World Cup 2018…Groups A thru D

FIFA World Cup starts June 14, 2018

FIFA World Cup 2018

Thirty-two nations competing for one prize…soccer is truly an international sport!

Even though this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia is the first time in the tournament’s history in which 32 teams will compete for the trophy, it is also notable for the number of heavyweight teams which failed to qualify.

Besides the United States, noticeable by their absence also will be…

Four-time champions Italy, as will one of the best teams in South America, Chile.

The Netherlands, finalists in 2010 and third place four years ago, will also be absent from Russia.

Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Wales, and Bosnia & Herzegovina also didn’t make the cut.

But the failure of all of these teams to qualify left the door wide open for the Iceland, Costa Rica, Panama, and Saudi Arabia to make their mark on the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia.
