Can Germany become the first team to retain the World Cup since Brazil In 1962?

  Can Germany become the first team to retain the World Cup since Brazil In 1962? The current World Cup holders Germany will be hoping to emulate Brazil in 1962 and retain the world title; being only the second national team to do so, but how will they fare in Russia? The Germans (as predicted) eased through qualifying for Russia; topping their group with 10 wins from a possible 10, conceding just four goals. Their squad is flush with young talent and experience, making them among the hot favourites to lift the trophy on July 15th. Most of the squad is still intact from 2014, however, key figures have hung up their boots and left a younger generation behind to take the reins, but you have to question whether the Germans will miss Phillip Lahm’s leadership or Bastian Schweinsteiger’s vim and vigour or Miroslav Klose’s eye for goal. The four-time World Cup winners will have a lot of pressure on their shoulders to reproduce their excellence in Brazil and many think they can do so. They certainly have the squad to go the distance but it’s down to Joachim Low to get the best out of them; something he is so good at. Germany kick-off their 2018 World Cup campaign against Mexico and will be looking to snatch all three points. Key players will need to be at their brilliant best’s again if Germany are to go all the way. Timo Werner will need to be firing if Germany have any hope in Russia, but they are the kind of team where goals can come from anyone; meaning they don’t rely on one person to produce the goods. Germany’s chances of winning the World Cup are still very high but only time will tell to see if two World Cup triumphs in a row is one step too far.

We published squad guides for all confederations : 1 UEFA 2 CONMEBOL 3 CAF 4 CONCACAF 5 AFC. Q: Are the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team World Cup players cards untradeable? It’s easier to make a good team and it’s a fun way to spend the last months before FIFA 19 goes out.

“Which of FIFA’s confederations is the best?” is a timeless question, asked since the conception of intercontinental football by almost nobody.

I haven’t allowed this to deter me, however, from going to great lengths and spending a good deal of my own personal time trying to determine which part of the world produces the best kickers of footballs. Follow me on my journey to find out once and for all.

First things first, let’s take a look at the method that I used to determine which conference was the best. Discussion and thoughtful debate are all well and good, but what we’re really looking for here is cold hard results. FIFA seems to agree with me on this, hosting their own Confederations Cup every 4 years as a precursor to the World Cup. Nobody really takes this seriously, however, so I turned to the most scientific method I could think of: AI vs AI on FIFA 18.

Roma ready to hijack Arsenal's deal for key target

  Roma ready to hijack Arsenal's deal for key target Roma are looking to hijack Arsenal’s attempts to sign Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to talkSPORT, who claim that the Giallorossi want the German to replace Alisson. The Brazilian goalkeeper was one of both Roma’s and Serie A’s star men last season, and has subsequently been linked with a mega money move to either Liverpool or Real Madrid this summer. While it is not yet known where Alisson will go, it is expected that he will depart the Stadio Olimpico during this transfer window. Selling the 25-year old would leave the Italian capital outfit low on squad depth in that department, with only Łukasz Skorupski left at the club, and Leno would represent a smart move to bring in a new number one.

Last time we looked at how to pick a good scout in FIFA 18 , and why it’s so important to bringing in top-quality players (make sure you read that guide before reading this one). Let ’s get started and work out where the best places are to send our scouts in FIFA 18 .

I constructed five teams to play each other in a single round-robin league format: UEFA (Europe), CONCACAF (North America, Central America and the Caribbean), CONMEBOL (South America), CAF (Africa), and the AFC (Asia). You may notice that I’ve excluded the OFC (Oceania) here. This is because a) it would just be New Zealand’s team and b) it would be really hard to scrape together a squad of New Zealanders from the FIFA database, which I don’t feel like doing and c) it would be an exercise in futility, as they’d almost certainly lose every game.

After trivialising the footballing ability of an entire continent, I then proceeded to create five teams to compete at the tournament. I also decided to have players who aren’t at the World Cup unable to qualify to play for their confederation, so players like Alexis Sánchez, Leonardo Bonucci and Virgil van Dijk were not eligible.

Newcastle told to pay £20m for Feyenoord's Nicolai Jorgensen

  Newcastle told to pay £20m for Feyenoord's Nicolai Jorgensen Newcastle United have shown a strong interest in Feyenoord’s Nicolai Jorgensen and the Dutch side have said that they will need to spend £20 million to sign the player, according to Chronicle Live. The Magpies boss Rafa Benitez has identified that his side need a top quality striker this summer and feels that this is where he should prioritise his transfers. The money which is available to him still appears to be limited but the report claims that Benitez is expecting to spend around £50 million, similar to the amount he spent in the previous summer transfer window. In order to sign a top quality striker, they are going to need to break their long-standing club transfer record which still stands at £16 million which they spent on Michael Owen back in 2005. Jorgensen is a player that they have watched for some time and Benitez could look to reignite their interest this summer as he goes in search of added goals.

And with FIFA 18 , it looks like the game and I will be picking up where we left off. EA kept the new plot coy at its event yesterday, but we 're told he'll visit places such as Brazil and Los Angeles to play football in the favelas and take part in his team's US tour.

I then moved all of the players to the team that is that reigning confederation’s club cup champion: Real Madrid for UEFA, Grêmio for CONMEBOL, Guadalajara for CONCACAF, Urawa Red Diamonds for AFC and Orlando Pirates for CAF (the only previous CAF Champions League winners on FIFA 18 – current champions Wydad Casablanca do not exist on the game).

To try and keep the playing field as level as possible, each team will play the same formation: a 4-2-3-1, with the same bench, comprised of a goalkeeper, a centre-back, a fullback (either side), a central midfielder, a winger (either side), an attacking midfielder, and a striker. Lastly, in order to avoid any controversy, I simply used the most up-to-date FIFA ratings (futwiz.com was an excellent resource for this) to pick the teams based on the best player rating at each position, which is why Neuer starts ahead of De Gea and Raheem Sterling starts at RW for UEFA. Below are the squads that I used for the competition, along with their ratings on the game:

Denmark v Australia: Match Preview

  Denmark v Australia: Match Preview Day eight of the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia sees the return of Group C, where Denmark take on Australia. Denmark face the Aussies on the back of a hard fought 1-0 win against Peru thanks to Yussuf Poulsen’s second half goal, whilst Australia have it all to do after falling to a 2-1 defeat against France despite an encouraging performance. With France expected to beat Peru, this contest could see Denmark join them in the last 16 with a win, but Australia will want to avoid an early World Cup exit and will take plenty of positives from their group opener against the European Championship finalists to try and get a result here. Denmark should expect a similar test here as they did with Peru. Players such as Aaron Mooy and Tom Rogic never look to allow opposition midfielders time and space with the ball, something which William Kvist and Christian Eriksen will need to be wary of. They have an abundance of energy and stamina and a lot of their good work starts here; they will need this to push Denmark for a result here, but will also need to be a lot more clinical in the final third. Whilst Peru gave it a good go, Denmark managed to show some good organisation and were quick to take their chance on the counter attack. They also have a great advantage with Christian Eriksen and his specialism with a dead ball, so Australia should be wary of committing fouls in dangerous areas. This could be just as close as the two opening group games and with both nations needing a result for different reasons, you would once again expect a goal to be enough to separate these sides if somebody was going to win it. Kick off is at 1pm in Samara.

With the squads set, all that was left was to actually play the games. To keep things even, all the games were played with 6-minute halves, on World Class difficulty, at a neutral ground (West Ham’s London Stadium). Below is a chart showing all the results, as well as the final league standings. And, in case you didn’t believe I would actually go to lengths of playing out these games, I’ve also included a link to a YouTube playlist if you’d like to watch all these games unfold for yourself.

Wanyama hails Hazard as toughest opponent he has faced

  Wanyama hails Hazard as toughest opponent he has faced Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama has hailed Eden Hazard as the toughest opponent he has come up against during his time in the Premier League. The 26-year old Kenya international, who has been meeting prominent figures in Kenya during his off-season holiday time, described the Chelsea man as of the best players in the league. Speaking in an interview with a local TV station, as quoted by Goal, Wanyama had this to say: “He’s really a good player. It’s not easy to take the ball away from him.” “He’s quick and he always turns so quickly with the ball.” Hazard joins Blues teammate N’Golo Kanté in being held high in the former Celtic and Southampton man’s regards, with Wanyama also including the former Leicester engine man in his list of best midfielders in the Premier League.

There's a FIFA World Cup Ultimate Team mode, too, which includes a revised chemistry system (instead of clubs and leagues, nationalities and confederations We 've seen standalone World Cup games in the past, so it's very much a good thing EA has made this year's take a free one in FIFA 18 .

So, what did we learn from this experiment? Firstly, if each continent’s best teams were to duel it out, there would be just 1.4 goals per game. This is most likely due to FIFA’s insanely frustrating AI. It was agony to watch teams repeatedly getting into threatening positions before deciding to pass the ball 4 or 5 times before losing possession inside the opponent’s penalty area.

In particular, the AFC struggled going forwards, with their lone goal in four matches coming in the form of a 90th minute Shinji Kagawa penalty. In contrast, the biggest surprise of the competition came in the form of the CAF coming 2nd in, including a shock 2-1 comeback victory over CONMEBOL. Cristiano Ronaldo finished at tournament top scorer, with 3 goals scored, equivalent to a preposterous 21.4% of all goals scored in the competition.

Finally, and most importantly, (assuming that my method was absolutely perfect and that there’s no point in repeating the test, of course) we can clearly see that UEFA are unquestionably the best confederation in the world. The bookmakers seem to agree, with SkyBet (at the time of writing), having six UEFA teams in their top eight favourites to be outright winners. Historically, this checks out as well, with UEFA’s 26 World Cup final appearances and 11 victories leading all confederations.

With all things considered then, the next time you’re lying in bed, wracked with anxiety over which confederation is best, remember that we have once and for all settled the debate over which arbitrary landmass produces the finest football talent: UEFA. I’m sure they’ll be delighted.

Everton target considered by Italian giants .
Inter Milan are interested in signing former Sporting CP midfielder and Everton target William Carvalho, according to reports. Carvalho, who is currently in Russia with the Portugal World Cup squad, was one of nine players to have terminated his contract with the Portuguese club last week after the club’s players were attacked by fans last season. Despite one of the nine, goalkeeper Rui Patricio, having already found a new club in Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sporting have confirmed that they intend to contest every contract cancellation with FIFA. While that issue hasn’t been resolved, Inter could in theory sign Carvalho for nothing, and according to Football Italia, the Nerazzurri are considering making an offer. Everton have also been linked with a move for the 26-year midfield unit. New Toffees boss Marco Silva previously worked with Carvalho at Sporting, which could be why the club are said to be so interested at the moment. Regardless of Carvalho’s Sporting contract dispute resolution, Everton will need to move quickly if they really do want their man.
