With the dawn of 2018, one realizes that the biggest football spectacle in the world will soon embrace us. That's right, 2018 is the year when the four-year-long wait will be finally over and the biggest countries in the world will be competing for one of the biggest prizes in the whole of sports, the FIFA World Cup. 

The FIFA World Cup is seen by one and all, as the biggest sporting event in the world along with the Olympics as football by a mile is the most popular and the most followed sport in the world. This edition of the FIFA World Cup will be held in Russia, a decision which has been highly controversial and heavily criticized in some parts of the globe due to the apparent existence of racism in the country and also the doping scandal allegations which has plagued Russia in Olympic sports. 

Nonetheless, all the politics will be put on the backburner when the tournament kicks off and 32 nations will be vying for the most prestigious trophy in football with the likes of defending champions Germany, Spain, Brazil and Belgium being the heavy favourites to win the competition.

Here is the full schedule of the tournament which will kick off in Moscow on June 14 and wrap up on July 15 in the same city:
