Spain vs. Portugal

The second day of FIFA World Cup 2018 will showcase the biggest group match. 2010 World Champions Spain will be up against 2016 Euro Champions Portugal. More interestingly, Sergio Ramos, Pique, Isco, and Iniesta will face Cristiano Ronaldo. Both teams are expected to sail through even though Morocco and Iran are no pushovers. Portugal is far behind as a team against Spain, but Portugal’sI ability to grind out results and talisman Cristiano Ronaldo along the ranks they are a formidable team. They have young prospects like Bernardo Silva and Goncalo Guedes alongside veterans like Pepe and Quaresma.

Spain hasn’t had the best of 2014 World Cup or the Euro 2016, but they are a team full of superstars and can play beautiful football. Iniesta will play his last International tournament, but the World class midfielder can prove to be the difference. Isco and David Silva will form the midfield and wings with Asensio and Vazquez waiting on the bench. Spain may play Costa or Rodrigo up front and introduce Aspas as the game goes by.

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.

5) Being the oldest to ever play the World Cup

Essam El-Hadary of Egypt could become the oldest player ever to play in the World Cup and will surpass Faryd Mondragon of Colombia. Faryd broke the record of Roger Milla in the previous World Cup.

El-Hadary has played 158 times for Egypt and is third in the list of most capped player in their history.

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.
