FIFA World Cup 2018, the biggest sporting event is all set to kick off from June, 14 2018 to July, 15 2018 in Russia. A total of 36 teams will be participating in the event. This is the most-awaited event of the sporting calendar 2018. The big names that would feature in this FIFA’s flagship event are, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr., Gareth Bale, among others.

The ‘Group of Death’ is considered to be the most feared group as two or three top teams are usually in the group. Going by this year’s grouping, it doesn’t seem like group of death exists like it did in 2014, when Spain, Netherlands, Chile and Australia were pitted against each other in Group B and England, Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica were grouped together in Group D. Only top two teams will qualify for the next stage from where on in, every game would be a knockout.

This is the 21st edition of FIFA World Cup and here’s a list of groups and fixtures:
