    Ukraine qualify as world cup fever intensifies over lack of progress in 2018 World Cup qualifiers after two games

    As the clock ticks down on the 2018 FIFA World Cup, speculation has emerged that some of the most prominent names involved in hosting next summer’s tournament could be out of favor with the country’s government over the country’s poor performance at home, with the tournament now looking to have a better chance of taking place in a region lackingjarvees.com the best quality players and facilities to do so.
