With just three days to go to the start of the much-anticipated Fifa World Cup 2018, all 32 teams will be getting their preparation into top gear, looking to get themselves as ready as they can be for the quadrennial showpiece.
While there are obvious favourites for the title, a World Cup won't just be a World Cup without a few surprises and a country or three making a deep run in the tournament would be great to watch. Will those surprises come from Groups C and D?
Here is a breakdown of the two groups, with a small preview and what to expect, along with the squads of all the participating sides.
France, Australia, Peru, Denmark:
Such is the strength in depth of France, that Didier Deschamps could leave out the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Anthony Martial, Karim Benzema, Kingsley Coman and Adrien Rabiot. Heck, such is the depth that a team of French players left out would still be stronger than the majority of teams in the tournament.
Therefore, the pressure is certainly on France to deliver, and while they struggled to cope with the expectations a little in that Euro 2016 final, they will try and take the positives out of the fact that they at least made it to the summit clash.
Australia, Peru and Denmark are all teams capable teams.
The Danes will look to the playmaking skills of Christian Eriksen, coming off a fabulous season with Tottenham.
Peru have had to take the long route to qualification – they were the last team to be confirmed, after beating New Zealand in an inter-continental playoff – but it won't be a surprise if they end up second to France in this group.
Australia have not really convinced under new manager Bert Van Marwijk, who took the Netherlands to the 2010 WC final. However, that man Tim Cahill is still there and you wouldn't want to bet against the veteran scoring a crucial goal or four would you?

Argentina, Iceland, Croatia, Nigeria:
All about Argentina this group, with Lionel Messi and his blue-and-white clad men looking to break their international jinx. Having come close on so many occasions, could this be the year that Argentina finally come through and take a major international title?
It will all be down to Messi and how well the rest of the forwardline functions.
Iceland, while being glad to just make it to their first ever World Cup, will also look to create an upset or two like they did in Euro 2016, while Nigeria will want to make sure everyone is reading from the same hymn sheet having struggled in recent times to come together as a team.
