The World Cup 2018 odds are available now and defending champions Germany are amongst the principles to retain the trophy they won in Rio de Janeiro four years ago.
England meanwhile are in the second wave of teams in the betting as Gareth Southgate looks to lead the Three Lions back from poor tournaments in 2014 and again at Euro 2016.
Dafabet has all the outright markets, along with leading goalscorers and World Cup 2018 Specials ensuring you can find the right odds for this summer’s biggest sporting event.
The Germans won their fourth World Cup in Brazil last time out but Joachim Low must defy history to win again as the nation has never before successfully defended a Word Cup or European Championship in seven attempts. With the likes of Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil and Manuel Neuer, the Germans look set for another journey into the tournament. Brazil were humiliated in their own back garden in 2014, losing 7-1 to the Germans in the semi-finals.
They have gathered momentum under coach Tite and have a squad bursting with talent including Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Gabriel Jesus. Will star-man Neymar recover from injury in time for June 17 and their opening game against Switzerland? England have not managed to live up to expectations in tournament football recently. A 2014 Group Stage exit was followed at Euro 2016 by a humbling loss to Iceland.
Gareth Southgate will hope for better this summer. In Harry Kane he has a World class goalscorer to spearhead what is now a new England generation.
