French World Cup victor Desailly

Factor in the Germans' uncanny ability to produce their best form at big moments during big tournaments, all objective analyses should have the Germans as clear favourites for the title. However, on June 22 when Brazil face Costa Rica 9am local time, it will mean late working day and an early pack up on June 27 when Brazil will play their final group match against Serbia at 3pm in South America.

Egypt are banking on the availability of Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, who was injured in the Champions League final, as they try to get past the first stage for the first time. With Neymar in side one can't discount Brazil. "My candidates today, not necessary in this order, are Brazil, Argentina, France, Germany, Spain and Portugal", he said. While the U.S. is leading the charts with 86710 tickets, China comes second with 39,884 tickets and Indian football fans are at the third spot with 17,962 tickets to them so far. "So we have to wait and watch to see which team weaves their magic", said Amalraj.

FIFA Congress will therefore determine whether to award the right to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup to one of the two candidates.

No one is really expecting this squad to lift the World Cup in July, but if they can work together and combine their talents as a collective whole, they can surprise a few teams and go deep in the competition.

Importantly, nine key players from the 2014 championship team, including Mesut Ozil, Thomas M¸ller, Toni Kroos and star goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will return, added to the technical sharpness of battle-tested maestro Joachim Low. We can confirm that 17,962 tickets have been allocated to Indian fans. "Paolo Rossi, Gary Lineker were the other players who were great".

Drawn in Group E, Brazil, who are second behind defending world champions Germany in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings, begin their campaign against Switzerland next Sunday, June 17, before also taking on Costa Rica and Serbia.

These two have so much experience playing in the top teams in Europe that those should come in handy when Croatia are up against powerful teams in Russian Federation.

He also said that he admired German coach, Joachim Loew.

When asked if the weather conditions will play a part in determining the victor, Amalraj said, "Russia is a very cold place and I agree that it will suit the Europeans more but most of the teams go to the venue one week in advance. And that will help them to acclimatize to the conditions".
