June 12 in Brazil starts the World Cup. The Russian national team, included in Group H, will face off with Belgium, South Korea and Algeria.
At first glance, Russia and Belgium in this group are favorites, but things can turn out far from what it seems at first glance.
As for Belgium, according to the bookmakers, it will win in the group, and has considerable chances to become the winner of the championship (fifth place after Brazil, Argentina, Germany and Spain). In 1986, the Belgian team won the fourth place in the World Cup. This is her best result to date.
The teams of South Korea and Algeria are clear outsiders. As for the Koreans, they managed to win fourth place in the 2002 championship. For Algeria, which did not go beyond the group stage, this will be the fourth world championship. Presumably, he will fight with Russia for second place in the group.
