Russia FIFA World Cup 2018
Russia is chosen as host for the 2018 football World Cup, beating challenges from England, Spain/Portugal and Belgium / Netherlands. Ref. BBC.
How interesting, but the problem with Russia being the host for the World Cup 2018 is the weather, it is said that Russia is very cold place, not to mention the snow in there. So how the event can work properly within weather conditions?

ISIS has been spreading their threats to the world cup game in Russia by showing posters of the beheading of Messi and saying they will kill those in attendance. I hope Russia's security is extremely tight.
It is time for the FIFA World Cup. This may not be as big in the USA specially as they were kicked out of the World Cup by a defeat from Trinidad & Tobago ;), however in the rest of the world the World Cup is a war, a battle… its like blood and life.
I've already put up the groups to the top of this Thread an will be highlighting it in different parts of the Community. What are your predictions for each group?
Yes America is out and that sucks but it wasn't because of one country- they were failing in many of their matches and when they had a chance to make the best of it they fell flat on their face.
Anyway I may throw my support behind Germany, the last champions but before I decide for sure I like to see how they play in the opening group stage.
Russia vs Saudia Arabia is the first match. Russia may win their group. They do not tend to get to the last 8 but they do show up for the games which is an accomplishment in itself. Right now their FIFA ranking is terrible.
Its always the same near the end so you can count on seeing Brazil, Germany, Argentina, Mexico and the Netherlands by the time they've gotten all the other countries out of contention.
