Finally! After four long years, the World Cup returns to decide between the true artists of the beautiful game. It's in Russia that Germany will be defending its title, while Neymar's Brazil will seek to get revenge for the insult suffered during the last competition and Messi will, once again, try to replace Diego Maradona in the hearts of the Argentines.
Over the course of one month, 32 teams will fight for the holy grail of football either to add to their awards or to get their first star. Although Italy is the major missing team, France, Spain, Uruguay and Morocco will be joining the party. The final will take place on 15th July in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium: whether for joy or sadness, we'll no doubt see footballers with tears in their eyes.
