Turkey hold Russian Federation in the last World Cup warm up match

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is around the corner, and another set of historical football memories will soon be created.

Russian Federation will go into its home World Cup without a win in seven games after drawing 1-1 with an under-strength Turkey team on Tuesday.

Russia's first-ever FIFA World Cup will take place from June 14 to July 15 in 11 cities across the country, Moscow, Kaliningrad, St. Petersburg, Volgograd, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Saransk, Rostov-on-Don, Sochi and Yekaterinburg. Uruguay held the first games and won the title.

Tickets were sold out for the match between Russia and Turkey on Tuesday night at the 30,000-seat VEB Arena and it was the final friendly fixture for the Russian national squad ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. "Prices exclude booking and delivery fees", Viagogo notes on its World Cup sales page.

Previous year in Thailand, the most watched soccer players of the 2018 World Cup were Neymar da Silva Santos Jr.

Say what you will about Federation Internationale de Football Association, but when it comes to their priorities, the entire organisation is as consistent as is humanly possible.

The 32 Champions League teams kicking off in the group stage in September will share a prize fund of €1.95 billion, up from €1.4 billion this season, UEFA said Tuesday.

Iran will be in Group B alongside former World Cup victor Spain and reigning European champions Portugal and Morocco.

Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar were the top three players in the United States and the UK, while Neymar, Ronaldo and Paulinho were most popular in Brazil, and Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and Ronaldo were most popular in France.

You can tell the World Cup 2018 is just around the corner; the kits are out, the wall charts are being hung up and the Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 patch is being played liberally across the globe.

The recent performances of World Cup hosts Russian Federation have left plenty of questions about their prospects at the tournament that opens next week.
