The tournament held in Russia, started on 14 June and finishes with the final on 15 July at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
How many teams are involved?
The first World Cup was held in 1930
The 20 World Cup tournaments since 1930 have been won by eight different teams.
Brazil have won five times, and they are the only team to have played in every tournament.
Since FIFA awarded the tournament to Russia many people have opposed this decision for a number of reasons
Anti-discrimination groups have recorded 190 racist or far-right incidents in Russian football between 2015 and 2017
A Russian law that bans gay “propaganda” may lead to openly gay and lesbian supporters facing the risk of violence with little protection from Russian authorities.
Russia: Controversial hosts?
