Russian Team was desperately looking for partners to play for World Cup 2018. To prepare for World Cup, the Russian National team even took part in a friendly match with Dynamo Moscow in September 2017. For the Russian side, the journey became very easy once the South American teams and the European teams qualified themselves for FIFA 2018. The friendly matches went on in the month of March 2018 with Brazil and France.
The coach of Russian Team Stanislav Cherchesov had built a new squad when he experienced the very unimpressive performance of Leonid Slutsky. A lot of veteran players are not on the team. This time FIFA will see young and energetic talents from Russian Squad and each match will be interesting. It was not an easy task for the Stanislav to build a team with young talents with no much experience. People are both doubtful and hopeful with the new young team.

2018 world Cup Group for Russia
Russian Nation Team is placed in Group A by FIFA. The team will have to play the first round of matches with Uruguay, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
Schedule of First Round Matches
After a friendly match against France and Brazil in the month of March 2018 the first match in 2018 World Cup would be against Saudi Arabia in the month of 14th June, the second match would be on 19th June against Egypt and the third match would be 25th June against Uruguay.
Russian National Team will not go far in this world cup but it might win one or two matches. Being a host country, they will be opening FIFA 2018 with Saudi Arabia and all audiences from each corner are expecting the best. We must now wait and see how the match goes.
Saudi Arabia will not be a power-packed team but their coach is good so the game might be theirs. Russia will not be able to beat Uruguay and Egypt. In this group, Egypt is the best and Uruguay will be lagging them.
In Russian National Team there is not much fun and the players are not that great but with the eagerness of the coach Stanislav Cherchesov the team might win few games or one or two games.
