FIFA World Cup 2018 is set to kick off today as the hosts Russia will take on Saudi Arabia in Moscow starting 8:30 pm IST. The month-long football fiesta will see the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Mohamed Salah, Iniesta and countless others fighting on the pitch for the coveted trophy. As if this was not enough to make soccer fans drool in excitement, the reigning champions Germany seem set to defend their crown this year as the team made their way to Russia a day before yesterday. If the team manages to do so, Germany will become the first team in the last 56 years to retain their World Champions title.

Be that as it may, there is no room for doubt that it will not be an easy task for the champions from Deutschland. Millions eye Messi to see him lift his first FIFA World Cup for his country, the only thing lacking on his side in his comparison with the legendary Diego Maradona. Similarly, many others have their hearts with their respective nationalities including Spain, England, France and for the first time in the last 28 years, Egypt. Expectations are sky high, emotions are towering and the excitement is unbound.
