We reached the end of matchday 1 of World Cup 2018. We saw every team played their first match. So far, the big teams didn’t play as well as we expected. However, these are my top 10 favorite teams in world cup 2018.
They are my favorite team since the previous world cup 2014. They lost to Germany at the final match. I hope this year they can win the world cup.
It’s just my guess.
We expected them to score more in the first match with Iceland but we need to know that Iceland is not a normal team. They have a very strong team spirit. Their defensive strategy just worked out very well. All the 11 players are around the penalty area. They compacted themselves to protect the goal.
Messi should not miss the penalty. I think he needs to relax and control his pressure. He is one of the best players in the world.
I believe Argentina will continue to the semi final.
They are a very strong team. It is not easy to understand why they lost to Mexico in the first match. Mats Hummels, the defender of the German team said (Source):
If 7 or 8 players attack, then it’s clear the offensive force is greater than the defensive stability. That’s what I often talk about internally, to no affect. Our cover wasn’t good, too often it was just Jerome and I at the back.
Their strategy was to attack but they left behind a lot of free spaces at their goal. We hope they will do better in the next match with Sweden.
Congratulation to their success on the first match with Colombia. They are the first Asian team to score at the world cup.
Their strategy is unpredictable. When they make a goal, it is always something remarkable. For example, we can’t forget the way they won the world cup in 1998. It was an unforgettable journey for them and for those who support them.
They are an interesting team, won the world cup champion in 2010. They have good players and we hope to see them play well in this world cup.
Their first match with Portugal was wonderful.
Congratulations to their win in the first match with Tunesia. It is interesting to see the team who comes from a country where they have football match every day.
Brazil is a long time and well-known footbal team in the history. They won 5 times world cup championships. I am not sure if this world cup they are going to make it until final.
Porgutal never reaches the final round and never win the world cup championship. But this year, will they make it? Will Ronaldo, one of the best players in the world along with Messi, can bring his team to the final? I personally look forward to see it happen.
Belgium is an interesting team that makes us enjoy their bravery and techniques in the attacks. They are a strong team and can support each other very well.
I do not yet see them playing with the strong team but their success with Panama is remarkable.
I’ve never heard of Iceland before. But their strategy of defensive against Argentina in the first match is something very efficient.
This is their first appearance in the world cup. Iceland is a small country with only 334,252 of the population. It’s their remarkable journey to the world cup. Let’s see how far they can go!
These are my top 10 favorite teams so far. What are yours? Who will win the world cup this year?
