Russian Federation 2018 brackets, favorites, expert picks and upsets by CBS Sports experts

FIFA announced Sunday that it has chosen its two finalists for hosting the 2026 World Cup

The five-time World Cup winners beat Croatia at Anfield, and, on Sunday, hit Austria for three without reply, including a stunning goal from Neymar.

"His technical and creative ability is fantastic".

They will be joined by Brazil's two-time World Cup victor Ronaldo at Thursday's show, which will be held just 30 minutes before the kick-off to the first match between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia. "When we spring him into action in the last third of the field, he is lethal".

Since 2006, every new edition of the FIFA World Cup™ has brought with it the promise of a new Trophy Tour travelling and touching down in new cities and meeting new fans.

Going into more details, Amalraj said that the team with the most players from one particular club team have the best chance of winning the World Cup and cited the examples of Spain and Germany, who won in 2010 and 2014 respectively. "Today was another example that, mentally, we are maturing".

"We hope that football lovers coming to Russia from all over the world will appreciate it as well", said the General Manager of 2018 FIFA World Cup™ Project of the Coca-Cola System in Russia Mickael Vinet.

Brazil have not lost since June 2017, a run of 10 games, and have kept 16 clean sheets in 21 games since Tite took over in June 2016.

A big question mark hangs over the participation of Egypt and Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah, who is still receiving treatment for the shoulder injury he suffered in the Champions League final.

The Egyptians arrived at their base in the Chechen capital Grozny on Sunday, after Salah sat out their final training session in Cairo. Morocco will play the last game in the first round of the World Cup against Spain on June 25 in Kaliningrad. Without providing details of the injury, Tite said Fred's situation was "improving" but didn't hint whether the midfielder could be back for the opener.

In the United Kingdom, coverage of the World Cup is being split between ITV and the BBC, and you'll be able to tune in in 4K HDR through iPlayer.

When does the FIFA International Friendly between FIFA Friendly between Brazil v Austria start?

"The last World Cup, they had the genius in Neymar, but he was kicked out of the competition and what was left was a bunch of forwards who shouldn't have been wearing the shirt". After so much hard work, suddenly the whole world is gathered in your backyard to celebrate their love for football.
