Maradona says Mexico does not deserve to host World Cup

Maradona says Mexico does not deserve to host World Cup

The Argentina captain is aiming to win his first ever worldwide honour with his Country, and wants to make up for the heartbreak of losing the 2014 final to Germany in Brazil. The Argentines lost the 2014 final to Germany 1-0 in extra time.

Britain's Daily Star came up with a report late last month saying that England's football fans were gearing up for something in Russian Federation during the World Cup and that it was "going to be like World War Three, Four, Five, Six and Seven". England will also go in quarter but will be eliminated by Germany.

There are 327 banned individuals who do not hold passports and they are not required to report to police.

The old adage of backing a European team to win in Europe should mean discounting the Brazilians, but I wouldn't be too sure. Argentina has arguably the world's best player in Lionel Messi - who sits atop the 2018 Golden Boot odds - and the World Cup is the only thing missing from his resume.

Brazil plays in Group E alongside Costa Rica, Serbia and Switzerland in the 2018 World Cup.

Below are the probabilities that each team will win. "We are here there is excitement, you can see it", he told reporters. He scored four goals in six games, and it was only through his infamous illness on the day of the final that prevented him stamping his name on that clash as well.

The team is not the first to use statistical models to forecast a triumph for Brazil at this year's tournament.

But they are not giving up on being able to host the tournament, as spokesperson of Moroccan government, Mustapha El Khalfi, says the country will begin preparations to bid for 2030.

Austrian mathematicians revealed in May that Germany and Brazil are neck-and-neck favourites to lift the trophy. If both pass through the final 16, Spain has only a small chance to win the Cup.

Researchers at the University of Innsbruck in Austria combined the odds of 26 online bookmakers and betting exchanges with a complex set of statistical models.

A total of 32 teams have qualified for the tournament, which will take place in 12 stadiums across eleven cities.
