How Will Latin American Teams Do At The 2018 FIFA World Cup


Latin American teams have won nearly half of the FIFA World Cup tournaments with Brazil being the most successful team in the World Cup with five trophies.

We take a look at how the Latin American teams will do in this years FIFA World Cup.

Panama

This is Panama’s first ever World Cup and with no experience, they are not expected to do a lot in the tournament. They are in a very tough group consisting of Belgium, England, and Tunisia. If one of the two big teams fails miserably, Panama will have a good chance to past the group stage.

Peru

The last time Peru was in the World Cup was back in 1982. Even though its been a long time coming great things are expected from the team. They are in group C consisting of France, Australia, and Denmark. If they can get a couple of points that would be a major achievement.

Colombia

Colombia had their best performance in the 2014 World Cup where they reached the quarterfinal stage. They are in a relatively simple group consisting of Poland, Senegal, and Japan and they are expected to be at the top of the group.

With stars like Carlos Bacca and James Rodriquez, Colombia is expected to reach the quarterfinals again.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica has improved their game the past few years and could surprise everyone in the World Cup. They are in group E with Switzerland, Serbia and the heavy favorites Brazil. They should be able to get past Serbia and Switzerland.

Mexico

El Tri has been underachievers at the World Cup, having only reached the last 16 in the last few world cups. They are in group F with Sweden, Korea and the current champions Germany. They should be able to place second behind Germany. Will this be the year for Mexico and gets past the last 16?

Uruguay

All everyone remembers about Uruguay and the previous World Cup is the biting incident Luis Suarez was involved in against Italy. Has Luis Suarez learned his lesson? Hopefully, he has as Uruguay is expected to at least reach the last eight. They are in group A consisting of Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt.

Argentina

Argentina reached the finals last time around, can they duplicate their performance or even win it all this time around? Even though they have Lionel Messi it will be very tough to go beyond the semifinal stage but anything can happen. They are in group D with Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.

Brazil


After losing 7-1 to Germany in the semifinals of the last World Cup they are ready to redeem themselves. They have improved their defense and the offense looks solid. They are the favored Latin American team to win in all. They are in group E consisting of Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.
