The FIFA World Cup 2018 is set to kick off from June 14, 2018, with the hosts Russia taking on Saudi Arabia in the season opener at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. The football's most prestigious tournament will continue for a month, with the final to take place on July 15, 2018. Germany, who won the trophy in 2014, will be eager to clinch their third World Cup title. Argentina's Lionel Messi won the Golden Boot for being the most outstanding player four years ago. Colombia's James Rodrigues won the Golden Ball for scoring most number of goals (6) in 2014. Germany's Manuel Neuer won the Golden Glove in World Cup 2014 for conceding the least number of goals in the tournament. It will be interesting to see if these players are able to repeat their performances in Russia.
