The World Cup is hands down the biggest sporting event in the world. Every four years the entire world focuses their attention on the best players in soccer representing their countries on the grandest stage. The 2018 World Cup is set to take place in Brazil, while the 2022 World Cup is already set to take place in Qatar.
In the 2014 World Cup the Germans continued their dominance with a huge 1-0 win in extra time over the equally strong Argentine side.
Russia 2018 is sure to be an exciting tournament with Germany once again one of the favourites along with Brazil, France, Spain and Argentina. I for one am looking forward to the action and am currently counting down the days.
With the Dutch failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, I won’t have an emotional investment in the tournament and I can instead enjoy the high quality soccer and focus on winning some bets.
