World Cup Trivia

How good is your World Cup knowledge?

The 2018 World Cup is just around the corner and we're all set for a feast of football over the next month. Russia kick-off proceedings in Moscow against Saudi Arabia on Thursday, which will see the worlds attention shift to Eastern Europe. The four year wait for footballs biggest competition has been a long one but now with it so close the excitement is reaching huge levels. England get underway against Tunisia on Monday 18th June and it's going to be an interesting campaign for the inexperienced Three Lions as they look to prove all their critics wrong.

In the last World Cup back in Brazil (2014) we exited the tournament at the group stage but surely that can't happen again this time round, with Gareth Southgate's men facing Panama and Belgium alongside their Tunisia. Germany are the favourites to lift the trophy, as they bid to become just the third side in history to retain the trophy. They're available at 9/2 along with Brazil who have a point to prove after being thrashed by the Germans 7-1 in the semi-finals of the last WC on home soil.

With the kick-off now just around the corner we've been looking at previous tournaments and we've decided to put together a quiz for you. It's a VERY hard one, testing your knowledge on various events and stats to come from the World Cup over the years. There's 15 answers in total but with no time limit, you can take as long as you can to make sure you get as many right as possible! Give it your best shot and once you've finished tweet your effort into us @FootyAccums!
