Another favorite for the cup France were drawn with Australia, Peru, and Denmark in Group C.

Being as fortunate as Neymar Jr.'s Brazil and Raphael Varane's France, Toni Kroos's Germany has got nothing to worry about in Group F of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Two of the hot favorites England and Belgium were drawn together in Group G. His club-mate, Robert Lewandowski will be hoping to fire Poland into the knockout stages, even if it looks unlikely he restricts their success in the Bundesliga, Dortmund's Shinji Kagawa will be hoping he can help Japan find success in this group, whilst Senegal will be heavily reliant on Liverpool's Sadio Mane if they're to have any success in Group H.

The February 9-25 games in South Korea come one month ahead of an election in which Putin, who has held power as president or prime minister since 1999, is widely expected to secure a new six-year term in the Kremlin.

Putin asserted on November 9 that allegations of a Kremlin-sponsored sports-doping program could be part of a USA campaign to interfere in the Russian presidential election and disrupt the election in Russia, a charge analysts said appeared to be part of an effort to rally voters around anti-Americanism.
