The much anticipated World Cup Russia 2018 commenced yesterday with the host team Russia taking on Saudi Arabia in what turned out to be a one sided affair as the hosts ran off 5-0 winners in the opening game of the tournament.


Match-day 2 Fixtures: 

Egypt v Uruguay (14h00)

This is a huge game for both teams and is the game that will most likely establish the group winners in group A. It is unlikely that Mohamed Salah will feature fort he full game but African fans will be hoping he will get some game time under his feet so that he can feature more in the latter stages of the tournament.

Our prediction (Egypt 1-3 Uruguay)

Morocco v Iran (17h00)

Not much to be said here as neither teams will make it past the group stages with Portugal and Spain being the other contenders.

Our prediction (Morocco 3-0 Iran)

Portugal v Spain (20h00)

This is undoubtedly the game of the day with Ronaldo’s Portugal coming up his team mate Ramos’s Spain. This game should go to decide the eventual group winners.

Our prediction (Portugal 1-0 Spain)
