Injuries & Suspensions
It will be all eyes on Russia 2018 in the summer for the tournament which starts on June 14th. Will Germany be able to defend their title? Will Brazil be able to climb their way back to the top of the world or will one of the strong challengers like France, Argentina and Belgium be able to make an impact and go all the way? While form and quality of players are going to be crucial in making a cup run, there is another area so important to World Cup betting.
That is World Cup injuries and suspensions. Imagine if Brazil were to go the World Cup 2018 without Neymar? What if England went without Harry Kane; Argentina without Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi? Those are the kind of things which could have a huge impact on the chances of a nation. It's so important to pay attention to those World Cup 2018 injury lists before, as well as during the tournament itself.
