The biggest football tournament of the year, FIFA World Cup 2018 begins tomorrow (14th June) in Russia and with that in mind we take you back behind-the-scenes of our LIVE Sports video that featured a football legend, Trevor Stevens.
As Trevor visited the Serene Family Home in Emirates Hills last month and looked over the Montgomerie Golf Course, he reflected on the spirit of sportsmanship, from playing for his school team to representing England in two World Cups.

The whole world awaits in excitement for the next FIFA World Cup, which includes football’s biggest names that are all prepared to score a victory for their home country. We have once again met with Trevor to find out his favorite World Cup teams in addition to his experiences and memories from the time when he himself played in the World Cup.
This year’s FIFA World Cup is taking place in Russia and will involve 32 national teams that have won the qualifying competitions as well as the automatically qualified national team of Russia. We can look forward to 64 matches that will be played in 12 venues in 11 cities with the the final match taking place on 15th July at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. The first match that will begin the tournament will be between the teams of Russia and Saudi Arabia on 14th June, followed by Egypt Uruguay.
Interview with Trevor Stevens
Q. Who are your favorite teams playing in the World Cup 2018?
A. One of them is definitely Brazil, I have been watching them play and they are one of the most complete and exciting teams to watch. Neymar is fit and strong, but, of course in a tournament like the World Cup it is not only about the strength it is also about preparation. If they can get that right, I wouldn’t be surprised if they won.
Q. What do you look forward to the most?
Q. Will the European teams be successful?
A. Even though the World Cup is happening in Russia this year, which appears to be an advantage for the European teams I would not say it will have a significant effect because the South American players also play in Europe a lot, it is not something new for them.
Q. Will they be using VAR?
A. Yes, they will, however I am not a huge fan of it because I think it has not been tested and perfected enough yet and it is too early to use it in the World Cup. It will be interesting to see how it will effect the game as a whole.
We have just completed our second tournament in Hong Kong with other 10 retired footballers. It is always a great time when we meet, the kind of bonding, friendship and camaraderie that holds us together through the sporting moments we have all experienced is immeasurable
