Well! It’s started. The largest sporting circus on the planet .The 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup is upon us and all the games will be shown at The Local. Some of the best players in world football will grace the stage in Russia in one of the World’s premier sporting events. It’s always an enjoyable exercise in predicating who will do what and which team will triumph and who will go home early. The top challengers are usually understood and generally the winner comes from that elite group, but there are always a few outsiders and surprises in the running for every major tournament. With 32 teams taking part it can be difficult to predict a winner, but some teams are inevitably better equipped than others when it comes to personnel. However, at every major tournament there is always room for an outsider to upset the established order.
With five titles, Brazil are the most successful World Cup team and also the only nation to have played in every World Cup (21) to date.
