How will FIFA police discrimination in Russia?

Since their World Cup debut in 1978, Iran are yet to make their first knockout stage of a World Cup and are desperate to make the mark at this year's competition which ends July 15.

Nike has claimed that 60 percent of all players in the 32-team World Cup will be wearing its cleats, including players from Germany and Spain.

The world governing body says officials will follow a "three-step" process - to stop, suspend or abandon games.

So what teams qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup? The Iranians have been paired in group B with Spain, Portugal and Morocco, but their preparations have been blighted by logistical problems.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has reiterated that referees will have the power to abandon matches at this month's World Cup in cases of persistent discrimination in the crowd.

Early arrival by Iran may not unconnected with a desire to acclimatize with intent to do better in Russian Federation.




Host nation Russian Federation will head into the World Cup on a seven-match winless run after letting a first-half lead slip away in a 1-1 draw with Turkey.

He called it a good helper to the referees, saying they were entitled to assistance if an opportunity for it existed while the introduction of VAR would definitely add fairness to the game. Defending champions Germany retain the no.1 spot and will thus start their World Cup title defence as the top-ranked team in the world.

According to OddsChecker, England are seventh favourites to win the World Cup 2018, with England at 16/1, just behind group opponents Belgium at 11/1.

If the Socceroos are to qualify for the round of 16, Mourinho has forecast they will play two-time World Cup winners Argentina, the team he thinks will sit atop Group D.

Putin mentioned former playmaker Diego Maradona, who captained Argentina to World Cup glory in 1986 whilst scooping the award for the tournament's best player.

"Today, there are no threats we have detected against the participants and visitors to the World Cup", Lavrishchev told a news conference.
