The Fifa World Cup 2018 has been a strange but rather an interesting competition so far with old kings of football like France, Brazil, Portugal, Spain and the rest expected to leave behind a remarkable form of performance but the games haven’t turned out as most fans hoped for.
The 2018 World Cup games have left many wondering about who could take this summer’s world trophy. The games played so far have made it quite hard to predict the most likely winner.
France is barely holding itself together though they managed to beat Peru 1-0 yesterday. Mean while, world cup favorites like Argentina can’t stop the mighty Croatia after they suffered a serious beating on Thursday night leaving them on the brink of an early World Cup exit.
As for Brazil, they seem to be ready to take on the fight for the world trophy after beating Costa Rica 2-0 today.
However, the games aren’t yet done and we still expect more thrilling action ahead in the coming matches. Below is the full World Cup 2018 fixture showing all match results so far and upcoming schedules;
