Brazil has five titles, Germany and Italy have four each, and Uruguay and Argentina boast two each, with single triumphs for England, France and Spain.

Saudi Arabia head into the tournament on the back of three straight defeats at the hands of Italy, Peru and Germany, but they showed enough in those games, particularly against Italy and Germany, to show they have a realistic chance of pipping Russian Federation and Egypt to the second spot behind Group A favorites Uruguay.

Neymar and Co. open their 2018 World Cup campaign versus Switzerland on Sunday 18th June, before facing Costa Rica then Serbia.

The World Cup gets underway on Thursday in Moscow.

Williams said he was "happy and excited" and that the performance was the fulfilment of a boyhood dream, promising an "unforgettable show".

"The transfer value of all the players who will take part in the World Cup is Euro 12.6 billion", explains the statement.

No one is really expecting this squad to lift the World Cup in July, but if they can work together and combine their talents as a collective whole, they can surprise a few teams and go deep in the competition.

'F--- TRUMP': Robert De Niro bleeped at Tony Awards
When introducing Meryl Streep at the National Board of Review awards in January, he had some more choice words for Trump. He has played Special Counsel Robert Mueller on "SNL" recently in skits mocking Trump (played by Alec Baldwin).

His goalscoring exploits and mesmeric skills are not the only reason Neymar's inclusion to this squad is so imperative to Tite, but his availability also allows the Brazilian tactician to deploy his favoured formation, allowing Coutinho to drop into the midfield, allowing the Barcelona playmaker license to penetrate more centrally.

The Egyptians arrived at their base in the Chechen capital Grozny on Sunday, after Salah sat out their final training session in Cairo.

In terms of individual player quality, perhaps the Brazilians are slightly ahead of the champions, especially with superstar Neymar Jr returning to an offensive line already boasting Phillipe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Gabriel Jesus and Willian, to be supported by a rock-solid and well-organised defensive cadre.

"He still feels pain. this type of injury needs a recovery period of three weeks before going back to the field", he said. The time difference between Russian Federation and the South American countries is around six hours and so the matches for them will either be early morning or afternoon.

Following the controversy, Williams told fans on Twitter that the song "is definitely not about Mr Putin".

The team will make every effort to achieve good results and improve upon its own past performance, officials said before departing Riyadh.
