Sports experts and bookmakers are already assessing the chances of participating teams for success. While preference is given to Brazilians, Germans, French and Portuguese. The chances of the Russians to participate in the final are considered minimal ... But our fan always hopes for a miracle in the performance of the Russian national team, in which, as you know, "you can only believe." Whether the bold dreams of domestic fans come true?
Where and when will the 2018 World Cup final be held?
The culmination bout of the 21st edition of the World Cup will be held on July 15, 2018. In the final match, the winners of the semi-final games will meet, which will be held on the 10th and 11th of the same month. Also, the rules of the tournament provides for the fight for third place. It will be organized on July 14th.
For the match X selected the most famous stadium of the country - "Luzhniki". The sports arena was opened in 1956.Since then, the UK repeatedly underwent renovations. The last of them, carried out in preparation for the 2018 World Cup, increased the capacity of the stadium to a record 81,000 spectators!

Participants in the final match of the World Cup Championship 2018
For the role of the finalists of the tournament, there are several teams that can match up with pleasant statistics and a composition with big names. We, too, will not stand aside, and we will make our list of possible participants in the World Cup supermatch.
The current victor of the world championship. "Bundestim" not once played in the last finals of the World Cup and the European Championships. But they managed to achieve victory only in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, where they overcame Argentina in extra time. There are 8 Germans in total in the main duel of the World Championship.
Joachim Löv regularly brings very strong and interesting players to major football competitions, always taking high places with his players. The world championship in Russia will not be an exception!
Young, fervent and ambitious group of "Gallic cockerels".This is no longer the team of Zinedine Zidane and Thierry Henry, but the national team of Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba. New names are new victories and records. At the European home championship, the footballers of the Fifth Republic were very close to gold. But they did not have enough experience, patience and endurance. The championship in Russia will be an excellent opportunity for them to rehabilitate for a blunder two years ago!
Portugal is a team in which the "spirit" of the Greek national team of the 2004 sample has infused itself. "Greek Spirit" makes the hot Portuguese guys spend a lot of time in the selections, play the 2nd number and generally do not get very involved in the attack if there is no need. While such a symbiosis brings results. Euro 2016 Gold - this is not for you! But as they say, nothing lasts forever. When the "spirit" of the Greeks leaves Portugal is not known. Fans of Ronaldo and K are hoping that this will not happen before the end of the world championship in Russia.
Ostap Bender's favorite country has never lacked stars. From the available football talents, five Brazilian national teams could be created. And they would all seriously fight for high places! But the problem isthat no one of the modern celesao stars can even compare with the charisma and transcendental football talent of the generation of Cafu, Roberto Carlos and Ronaldo. Brazil’s victories are a thing of the past, as have its great veterans. Nevertheless, the yellow-green always remain the contenders for the highest test!
World Cup Finals history
Here are the final pairs in the last five rounds:
- 2014: Germany 1: 0 Argentina;
- 2010: Spain 1: 0 The Netherlands;
- 2006: Italy 1: 1 France;
- 2002: Brazil 2: 0 Germany;
- 1998: France 3: 0 Brazil.
As can be seen from the statistics, there is no particular hegemony of this or that team.
The most award-winning team of competition are Brazilians. They won the tournament 5 times. In second place are the Germans and Italians. On their account 4 wins. At the same time, “Bundestim” played the most in the final - 8 times.
Chances of the Russian national team to participate in the final match
The chances of the national team do not cause any special illusions. The only trump card on the side of the Russians is the factor of native tribunes.
If we turn to history, it turns out that neither the Soviet nor the Russian national teams achieved any serious success at world championships.The most significant result can be called the 4th place at the 1966 World Cup, when the legendary team with Lev Yashin, Valentin Ivanov and Anzor Kavazashvili was still shining in the international arena. In modern history, Russia was only noted for the final round of the World Cup in the group round in 1994, 2002 and 2014. In all cases, the Russians were not able to leave their groups. In general, the novel of our footballers with the world championship did not work out ... Let's hope that the upcoming tournament draw will still reciprocate the Russian national team in 2018 - after all, this is a home championship!
Here is what all known information about the future supermatch looks like. Now you know the date and location of the main game of the 21st tournament draw. But it remains to clarify the most important detail - to find out the names of the participants of the culminating duel. This can be done not earlier than July 11, 2018, when the ½ finals meet.
