Predictions Of Group A For 2018 FIFA World Cup

Well, this group is unpredictable as all teams have performed unpredictably in past games. Two times World Champions Uruguay are desperate to win their first World Cup since 1950. So, they are expected to advance to knock out round. But being host nation, Russia is also one of the favorites to qualify for the round of 16. Home support of Russia would be the biggest advantage for the Russian team.

The presence of Egypt makes this group more difficult. A remarkable performance in Africa Cup of Nations last year made them one of the strongest competitors for the round of 16. An interesting combination of the young and experienced squad could make this World Cup more interesting.

TV and radio coverage: All Group A games are being covered live on TV in the UK by either BBC or ITV. All games are being covered live on the radio in the UK on BBC Radio 5Live and BBC Radio 5Live Sports Extra.
