World Cup 2018 Preview

The 2018 World Cup starts in a little over six months in Russia. 

Friday in Moscow, soccer officials drew bouncing balls to decide team groupings. The traditional “Group of Death” is a toss-up between Group B (Portugal, Spain, Iran, and Morocco) and Group F (Germany, Mexico, Sweden, and South Korea). 

Worldview’s weekly global traveler, Nari Safavi of Weekend Passport, is also a soccer nut. He’ll break down the groupings, teams, and preview next year’s Cup.
