CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia will officially open on the evening of the 14th.

“Friendly” kick-off time
No more absenteeism
It’s too difficult for Chinese fans to recall all their previous experiences of watching the World Cup. There are some people waking up in the middle of the night by alarm bell, and some people drink water desperately before sleep to watch the ball with nature calling...However, in the Russian World Cup, the fans can watch the ball comfortably.
According to the schedule of this World Cup, we can see that the FIFA World Cup Russia will kick off on June 14 and the final will be held on July 15.

And for the fans, this World Cup has a lot of watching focus. As the defending champion, can Germany win the World Cup again in 2018? Perhaps this is the last World Cup for Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the old opponents. Can they lead their team to victory? Will the Iceland team, which shocked the world in the UEFA Euro 2016, continue to be a dark horse? The suspense will end next month.
