Mexico's first match at the upcoming World Cup will be against reigning champions Germany in Moscow on June 17.

He also said that he admired German coach, Joachim Loew. "We need to teach them how to smile". Surprisingly, though, Mario Gotze and Leroy Sane are both out. "I felt that in Brazil four years ago and I am now happy to share this excitement with the Russians as well".

Leading the defence will be Marcelo in the absence of injured Dani Alves. Spain are loaded with veterans and boast one of the world's best goalies in David De Gea.

Nainggolan is renowned for the quality of his passing and the consistency of his play and is widely regarded as being one of the leading central midfielders in Serie A. He also possesses an abundance of experience at global level and was part of the Belgian squad that competed at Euro 2016.

As the atmosphere built before Thursday's curtain raiser between the hosts and Saudi Arabia, the French and Argentine players were put through their paces while Brazil took the day off. They have finished bottom of their group in their last three appearances, their best performance dating back to their opening tournament in 1994 (knocked out by Sweden in the round of 16).

India captain Sunil Chhetris, fresh from his side's Intercontinental Cup victory, believes that the new ELO rankings will be a welcome change for his side, as they will have to play more official global matches instead of friendly tournaments. "It's more about the U-23 team", he said.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is spread across 12 stadiums in 11 host cities. I think there is room for the surprise.

Rafa Nadal books French final showdown with Dominic Thiem
The pivotal part of the match was the second-set tiebreaker in which both men played superbly - and both had chances to end it. After holding there, Nadal broke del Potro to take that set and was on his way, taking 14 of the last 17 games.
