The Russia World Cup will include five African teams, five Asian teams, 14 European teams, three North American teams and five Latin American teams.

Among them, the competition in Group B, Group D and Group F is expected to be fierce.

First, Group B has two strong teams, Portugal and Spain. Therefore, it is likely that the two teams will advance to the quarter-final round. But Morocco, an African power, could be a dark horse.

Next, in Group D Argentina and Croatia are likely to advance to the quarterfinals. However, Iceland has good teamwork and Nigeria's players have good physical abilities, so this is expected to lead to fierce competition in Group D.

Group F includes Germany, Mexico, Sweden and South Korea. Germany is a strong favorite to win the World Cup due to its veteran players and young players. Therefore, it is expected that there will be competition for the second place by the three other teams, excluding Germany.

Which countries are selected as the favorites for the Russia World Cup? According to European betting companies '32 Red,' 'Bwin,' and 'William Hill’: Germany and Brazil are the most likely teams to win. Germany, the winner of the 2014 World Cup, is maintaining the power it had when it won. Brazil is also considered a favorite because young players like superstar Neymar are outstanding.

The betting companies say France and Spain have the third and fourth highest dividend rates. Argentina, Belgium, England and Portugal are also expected to perform well. And Salah was voted the most notable player of the World Cup.
