World Cup: Meet the Groups for Russia

The 2018 FIFA World Cup, taking place in 11 cities in Russia, is only 197 days away.

The tournament will commence on June 14, 2018, and now fans know what the first match will be. The Russian Federation will take on Saudi Arabia.

All 32 teams learned their fate, and shivered when they found out who they would face during the World Cup draw, in Moscow, on Friday morning.

The Group of Death seems to be Group F, with Germany, Mexico, Sweden and South Korea. A close second – or “mini” Group of Death – would be Group E, made up of Brazil, Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.

Below are the groups that will compete in Russia for the World Cup.

Group A: Russia, Uruguay, Egypt, Saudi Arabia

Group B: Portugal, Spain, Iran, Morocco

Group C: France, Peru, Denmark, Australia

Group D: Argentina, Croatia, Iceland, Nigeria

Group E: Brazil, Switzerland, Costa Rica, Serbia

Group F: Germany, Mexico, Sweden, South Korea

Group G: Belgium, England, Tunisia, Panama

Group H: Poland, Colombia, Senegal, Japan
