5 Records That Might Be Rewritten In The FIFA 2018 World Cup

4) Most number of matches played between two teams

This record is up for the grabs. Brazil and Sweden; Argentina and Germany; Germany and Serbia. Each pair have played each other 7 times in the World Cup history with Argentina and Germany facing 3 of the 7 ties in the finals of the World Cup. Here the math gets critical as if Brazil tops the group and Sweden finish second, they will face each other in the Round of 16, and vice-versa of course. The same course will follow for Serbia and Germany, and they are likely to meet in the Round of 16 if both qualify.

The one with Argentina and Germany will see, winners of Round of 16 matches. Given Argentina wins their round and Germany emerges victorious in theirs, the pair will meet each other in the Quarter Finals of the World Cup. By the looks of it, one can expect the Germany vs. Argentina pair break the record.

Team Of Captains At The FIFA 2018 World Cup

GK: Hugo Lloris

Captain of unarguably the most talented squad in the World Cup, pressure will be more than anything on Lloris than one could contemplate. It is never easy to manage a dressing room full of stars and for France, it is an even bigger headache. Les Blues have already left behind the likes of Martial, Benzema and Lacazette who are well good enough to be selected for the national team. With Koscielny now ruled out, Lloris is the only experienced senior player in the team alongside BlaiseMatuidi, who is not so known for his leadership qualities. Lloris will have the task of organizing the French squad and keeping them focussed enough to make their talent count as a team rather than as an individual.

Hirving Lozano: Mexico

Mexico hasn’t produced outrageous attacking talents since Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez. Despite qualifying for their sixth straight World Cup, Mexico never boasted of talented forwards, and depended more on their impregnable midfield and defence. The arrival of young Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano may well change the stance of Mexico in World football. A prodigal winger who loves to cut inside and score stunners. Lozano reminds of Cristiano Ronaldo at United as both play on the left side and prefer to score with their outrageous right foot.

Upon arriving at PSV Eindhoven in 2017, Lozano helped them win the Eredivisie title. Lozano will share the load of scoring with Chicharito and is expected to outshine his veteran striker. Lozano’s influence could well help Mexico play a more attacking brand of football. Lozano displayed his silky skills in the 2017 Confed Cup, and despite being 22 he holds a mature head over his shoulders.

5) Iago Aspas

Aspas arrived at Anfield after impressing with Celta mainly to provide strong backup to Luis Suarez, who was prone to suspensions at the time. Things went quite well for Aspas in the early part of his Liverpool career as he blossomed in Suarez’s absence. However, once Suarez returned, things only went on a downward spiral for the Spaniard as he found gametime hard to come by. Alongside Suarez was a fully fit Sturridge as the duo combined to score a massive 55 goals in the season. As for Aspas, his solitary goal for the Reds came against Oldham Athletic in a FA Cup tie. He was sent out to Sevilla on loan the following season where he once again failed to find his feet eventually returning to Celta. At Celta though, Aspas has managed to turn his career around once again as he has now scored 67 goals in 126 games, while has also made his debut for the national side and is in the squad to feature in the World Cup.
