The 2018 World Cup at William George & Co.
The World Cup is soon upon us! in 9 days, there will be 32 countries who are aiming for the most prestigious prize in world football.
The hosts, Russia, will be kicking off the quadrennial tournament on 14th July at the Luzhniki Stadium against Saudi Arabia. The tournament runs until the 15th July where the finalists will play at the same stadium.
This year's world cup will be missing some of its titans with 3x finalists the Dutch and the four-time winning Italians both missing out this year. This was capitalised on by Iceland and Panama who will be enjoying their first ever world cup with the latter being grouped with England.

What does this mean for England?
England is going to the World Cup with little-to-no expectations and we have seen what this can do after the exploits of Wales and Iceland at the 2016 European Championships in France.
