The process began in 12 March 2015 which ended in 15 November 2017. Total 872 matches have

exciting the qualifying round was.

fifa world cup predictions and analysis of the possible 2018 Champion by their history, team combination,
qualifying round performances and their possible group result of Final world
cup group. Let’s jump into the main article.
one of the most successful national teams in the international football
competitions. They have already won 4 World cup in 1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014.
They won three European Championships (1972, 1980, and 1996) and one
Confederations Cup. They become runners-up 4 times in the World Cup, 3 times in
the European Championships, and a further four third-place finishes at World Cups.
They earned the highest elo ranking ever for any national football team too.
(2)The qualifying stage performance was
satisfactorily of the current top-ranked team in the world with ten convincing
victories in as many fixtures proving the supremacy of the mighty Germans. They
were in group C along with Northern Ireland, Czech Republic, Norway, Azerbaijan
and San Marino. They scored 43 goals against the opponents in the stage
competition and qualified for the main round.
Key Performer: From the goal post, Marc-Andre ter Stegen will be a greater
challenge for any of the opposite team to score as we all the football lovers know
how he is passing his great times of career in Barcelona.(3) Toni Kroos, is an experienced Real Madrid
midfielder who can lead the whole key of the match from the midfield. He has already
won two Fifa Club World Cup titles, two Champions League titles and one La Liga
title. Moreover, they have experienced player like Mesut Ozil, Thomas Muller,
Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng, Mario Götze
the only goal scorer in the 2014 World Cup Final match, Julian Draxler, Sami Khedira specially the new player Leon Goretzka showing his class in the qualifying stage of
World Cup 2018. They have the capability to change the game and their
performance can greatly effect on the score line as well as in world cup 2018 qualification and you
need to be an expert fifa predictor to
say that, if any of them perform on the field, then that day will be definitely
In a words,
when you are talking about 2018 fifa world cup predictions and
analysis, You have keep your attention on Germany strongly there.
Portugal is the defending European champion, who had beaten France
1-0 in the final of Euro 2016. Their best performance on the World Cup
tournament is in 1966 when they finished third in the competition. They have
been qualified 7 times for the world cup. They reached semi finals in 2000,
2012, final in 2004 of Euro and semifinals in 2006. Winning the Euro 2016 is
their first ever major trophy defeating host France by 1-0. Currently
they are holding number 3 position in Fifa Ranking.
was in group B from Europe. They had Switzerland, Hungary, Faroe Island,
Latvia, and Andorra with them in the qualifying round. They won 9 games out of
10 and placed first in the group followed by Switzerland. Though having same
game points, Portugal was aggregated by goal difference point. They got Spain,
Iran and Morocco in the Group C of main round.
(4)Cristiano Ronaldo the star player of Real
Madrid, all most everyone who loves football, related to football knows this
guy. Recently he has achieved the Ballon d’Or for the fifth times. He is the
strongest trump card for any fifa
predictor as well as Portugal National Team. He is the most capped player
for Portugal also the record goal scorer in national jersey. He scored 15 goals
in the world cup 2018 qualification
round. Moreover they have, Adrien Silva, Bernardo Silva, Cedric
Soares, Renato Sanches, Andre Gomes, Jose Fonte, Bruno Alves, and Nelson
Oliveira. All of them are having great season in different national
Portugal national team has developed a lot within time and this team is
stronger than before. Your prediction on world
cup 2018 predictions game would not be in vain as far we can guess.
The team, which can impact on 2018 fifa world cup predictions and analysis, is France. If we look at the history
of France football team in world cup, then we will find an enriched and healthy
result. They have attended the main event of world cup 15 times. The satisfying
result is, they become third in 1958, 1986, fourth in 1982, become champion in
1998 and runners up in 2006 by losing 5-3 penalty to Italy. Moreover, they also won UEFA European
Football Championships, an Olympic tournament, and two FIFA Confederations
qualified them from Group A of Europe region. They had Sweden, Netherlands,
Bulgaria, Luxembourg and Belarus with them. They placed first in the group
having 7 win, 2 draw and single lose to Sweden. They qualified directly when
Sweden had to continue the journey with one more step of playoff closing the
chance of Italy playing in world cup 2018.
(5)I already told that France can impact on World Cup 2018 footballs predictions because the team is much matured and the perfect blend of young and experienced players of the
team can make any bigger changes in the scoreboard. Antoine Griezmann, the Atlético Madrid
striker scored top six goals as France reached to 2016 Euro final. They will
have a blasting attack of Kylian
Mbappé of Paris St-Germain, Antoine Griezmann and
Ousmane Dembélé who recently joined Barcelona with
third highest transfer value in the world. Moreover, they have Anthony
Martial and Paul Pogba performing excellently from Manchester United,
Alexandre Lacazette and Olivier Giroud from Arsenal, Tiemoue
Bakayoko and N’Golo Kante from Chelsea, Lucas Digne, Samuel Umtiti both strong candidate from Barcelona
on the defense.
players of France are on their best form in different English and Spanish
league. Their level of performances and experiences keep the ability to beat
any of the world best team in theirs day.
(7)If you want to
know the biggest success of England national team that was in 1966 when they
become champion. They have reached the semi-finals only once in 1990, when they
finished their world cup journey placing fourth. Any England fans will not try
to remember their last World cup performance where they have been knocked out
from the group stage. This never happened after 1958.However, they have joined
15 tournaments of world cup.
England was in Group F
Scotland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Malta and Lithuania. England qualified as Group
winner conceding no lose in the qualifying round. Among 10 matches, they won 8
matches and drew rest of the two matches. England is in the group G of main
event with Belgium, Tunisia and Panama.
football scholars treat England as an average European side but could be quite
unpredictable due to Harry Kane, one
of the world’s most in-form strikers. He scored
27goals in 2017 which was just only 9 behind the Lionel Messi. Jamie Vardy,
Marcus Rashford and several young talents in their squad are doing well
in English premier league. The weakest point is goalkeepers and as usual too
high expectations of the public.
The performance of the
England team in earlier world cup 2018 qualification stage was not that
much bad. They have the ability to create chances and perform timely. Let’s
wait for the rest actually what happens to the final round.
World Cup champion Spain is one of the most dominating and strong team when you
are talking about the Russia 2018 fifa
world cup predictions and analysis. Though La Roja’s recent performance
wasn’t that much good enough as they crashed out at the group stage in Brazil
2014 World Cup and disappointment of France 2016 were not at all cathartic in
the end. But 2008 to 2012 was Spain’s era in the Football. They were the first
European team ever to win the World cup title outside Europe as well as having
won back-to-back European titles in Euro 2008 and Euro 2012, defeating Germany
and Italy in the respective finals. They are about to attend their 15th
World Cup competition in Russia.
(9)Spain was the Winners of European Group G ahead of
Italy. They had Albania, Israel, Fyr Macedonia, and Liechtenstein along with
the Italy in the group. Among 10 matches, they won all the 9 games and made a
single draw with Italy. Spain scored 36goals in 10 matches and was ahead of 5
points from Italy who positioned second and unluckily could not qualify for the
world cup main event after 58 years. Spain is in Group B in the main Tournament
with one another European giant Portugal, Iran and Morocco.
(10)Maybe Spain is the only team in the
Russia World Cup 2018, where you will get 11 star players out of 11 players and
most them are in one of their best form. If I start telling from the goal post,
David De Gea will be the most
powerful barrier to cross the goal line as he is passing great time in
Manchester united for last few seasons. In the Defend, You will find Jordi Alba, Barcelona’s
left-back, who is hardworking, fast, aggressive and always looking to get
forward on the overlap, The Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal, who is less explosive and plays
the same role as Alba of delivering quality in the final third,
get forward to support and get aggressive in the defense, Sergio Ramos, one of the best center back in the world and also the
most experienced player in the squad, Gerard Pique, the Barcelona
Defender who might play the same role as Ramos, Nacho, the Real Madrid
defender, playing a more key role now than ever at club level.
He can be a smart choice if either of the first-choice defenders is missing.
They also has Marc Bartra from Borussia
Dortmund, who is improving immeasurably and similar to Pique in certain aspects, Hector Bellerin. In Central midfield, They got Sergio Busquets who
is still the world’s best defensive midfielder. His passing
between the lines is pivotal to Spain’s play, then Andres Iniesta the guy who still
has the capacity to unlock any defense. They also have Koke from Atletico Madrid, Sergio
Roberto from Barcelona, Cesc
Fabregas, Saul Niguez, Thiago
Alcantara, Isco Real Madrid’s current golden boy scoring six
goals and an assist in Spain’s past seven matches. On the attacking midfield they got, David Silva who has
over a century of caps and is now one of the more experienced players in this
team. He plays both in false nine and the sides of the attack. The plus point
is, he is in his best form which is a key for Spain to win the World Cup.
Moreover, they have Mark Asensio the
Real Madrid’s current icon for the future, Pedro,
Suso, Juan Mata, Lucas Vazquez, Nolito, Gerard Deulofeu,
and Jonathan Viera. In striking,
they got Alvaro Morata, remarkably
complete forward and running performer from
Chelsea, Iago Aspas, Diego Costa, Paco Alcacer, Rodrigo, Aritz Aduriz and David Villa. I must say that manager Julen Lopetegui will
be in a mental war for whom to choose for squad and whom to give place in bench.
Germany, I will personally place Spain predicting
the 32 world cup teams 2018, who has the possibility to win this World Cup
2018 with Brazil and France. Only a complete team combination and flow of
performance is just needed for that.
From South America:
(12) Brazil is
the most successful national football team in the FIFA World Cup tournaments.
Brazil has won the world cup in record 5 times in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and
2002. Brazil is the only national team to participate in all World Cup editions
without any absence nor need for playoffs. This 2018 World Cup will be their
21th World Cup participation. They won FIFA Confederations Cup for 4 times and
won Copa America for 5 times. The Selecao is a strong name for the possible 2018 World cup football predictions but the gloom that engulfed Brazil after the
7-1 debacle against Germany in the 2014 World Cup has lifted.
the first nation to qualify for the showpiece in Russia world cup main event.
South American zone was risky for all the teams as they all are so much
competitive and strong. Brazil confirmed their qualifying round positioning 1st
from the group. They had a clean difference of 10points with the second
position holder Uruguay. Out of 18
matches, they won 12 matches; drawn 5 games and a single lose to Chile who
already closed their world cup journey.
(11) Neymar the guy
is called the best player of the era right after Lionel Messi and Cristiano
Ronaldo. He is scoring averagely a goal and an assist per game since his
world-record most expensive deal of 222$ Million in the world move to Paris
St-Germain. They had premier league player like Ederson, Danilo, Fernandinho, Gabriel Jesus who are regular performer of Manchester City, Philippe Coutinho the second most
expensive player who recently joined Barcelona from Liverpool, Roberto Firmino from Liverpool, Willian from Chelsea. World class
defender Marquinhos, experienced
player like Thiago Silva, Daniel Alves
from Paris Saint-Germain, Filipe Luis
from Atletico Madrid, Marcelo from
Real Madrid. Casemiro from Real
Madrid, Paulinho from Barcelona all
are the experienced players who can lead a great play from the midfield with
Whatever your 2018 fifa world cup predictions and analysis is, logically I will
love to see Germany or and Brazil in Russia 2018 World Cup Final. Because Spain
and France may collapse due to the presence of more monks. Moreover, Brazil is
a common name for any fifa predictor that
has the chance and possibility to win 2018 world cup.
The 2014 World Cup runners up Argentina
national football team known as the Albicelestes
has participated 17 times along with 2018 Russia World Cup. They have appeared
in five World Cup finals while they become champion in two tournaments.
Argentina is very successful in the Copa América, winning it 14 times. Only 4
national teams that have won the three most important men’s titles recognized
by FIFA are the World Cup, the Confederations Cup, and the Olympic tournament.
Argentina is one of them with Germany, Brazil and France.
The qualifying round of Argentina
was not too good at all.
The Albicelestes had to wait for the last match and also in
some complicated equation that can allow them to reach Russia main
tournament. All the football predictions was going wrong and situation become tougher
than before when Lionel Messi made his magical blow to defeat Ecuador by 3-1
and positioned 3rd from the group. This was going for the very first
time after 1970 that the world cup would begin without Argentina. But a team
featuring Lionel Messi can never be ignored. Out of 18 matches, they won 7
games, drew 7 games and lost 4 games. The Colombia and Peru were right behind
them where Brazil and Uruguay was in first and second place on the table.
Team: Spain, Portugal, Iran, Morocco.
Key match: Spain vs.
Team: Belgium, England, Tunisia, Panama.
Key match: England vs. Belgium

analysis has been
done according to the performances of the recent times with qualifying round,
