Russia home jersey World Cup 2018

Russia is the weakest host alongside South Africa and USA in the history of the World Cup. Uruguay won it at home, Italy won it at home, England won it at home, Germany won it at home, Argentina won it at home, France won it at home. Brazil was runners up at home, Sweden reached the final at home. Korea reached the semis at home, Brazil likewise, so did Germany, so did Italy, so usually the hosts perform well at home. But this time around Russia will be lucky to make it out of the group stage. The team has the lowest ranking among the 32 teams in Russia. The draw was quite favorable for the hosts though since they came up against Egypt, Uruguay, and Saudi Arabia. So they stand a fair chance of advancing though the team is rather weak. If they get a couple of wins they might come riding on wave which will eventually crash though. But in a best case scenario Russia might make it to the quarterfinals. A more realistic worst case scenario will see the hosts crash out at the group stage as only the second host ever not to make it to the round of 16. South Africa was the first and so far only team not to advance from the group stage.

Egypt home jersey World Cup 2018

New Egypt home jersey for the World Cup 2018.
Egypt qualified from the African confederation and was among the first teams to secure a spot in Russia. Egypt has won many African nations cup titles but participation at the World Cup has been rare. Finally Egypt made it to the World Cup after a long absence and they must be quite happy about the draw. Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Uruguay. Hard to find a weaker group than that. Russia and Saudi being the two countries with the lowest FIFA ranking, and Uruguay being a team which has not excelled neither at a World Cup nor at Copa America for a long period og time.
The grand star for Egypt is the new Liverpool starlet Mohammed Salah. Interesting to see what he can achieve with Egypt rather than with the other 3 members of the Fab4 of Liverpool.

Japan home jersey World Cup 2018

Japan home jersey World Cup 2018 is an elegant kit delivered by Adidas.
Japan is good at getting out of the Asian qualification round and into the World Cup. Otherwise once they arrive at the World Cup then results are somewhat lacking.
This time around Japan have ended up in a group also featuring Senegal, Colombia, and Poland. A group where all 4 teams seem fairly equal strengthwise.
