The report of the Spanish national newspaper, published in June 11th, entitled the history of war behind each group in the Russian World Cup, said that the Russian World Cup measured the strength of 32 countries in football. Militarily speaking, many of them have fought many times in history. The following article reviews the history of each participating country in the world cup to see when they fought and fought several times with other countries in the group.
Group A: Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Uruguay.
In this group, the most frequently visited countries are Saudi Arabia and Egypt, the closest countries in the world. In nineteenth Century, the two countries clashed in the war of the hubby. After the war between 1811 and 1818, Egypt, which belonged to the Osman Empire, defeated the first country ruled by the Saudi royal family.
During the cold war, Saudi Arabia and Egypt also fought in the civil war in northern Yemen.
More than a century ago, Egypt and Russia were not so friendly. In 1827, during the Greek Independence War, the Russian, British and French armies fought with Egypt under the Osman empire.
Group B: Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Iran
The neighbours of Spain, Portugal and Morocco are in the same group.
Between 1580 and 1640, Spain and Portugal were under the same rule of monarchy. Before and after this history, there were wars between the two countries. Between 1776 and 1777, Spain and Portugal fought for the South American territory. At the request of Napoleon, Spain also launched a brief war against Portugal in 1801.
Spain and Morocco fought more frequently. In 1859, Morocco's attack on UDA triggered the first Morocco war. In the end, Spain won. In the second Morocco war between 1911 and 1927, Spain defeated the tribes in northern Morocco.
Group C: France, Australia, Peru, Denmark
There is almost nothing to say about Australia and Peru. France and Denmark are different. The two European countries have been adversaries in several times. They fought many times in seventeenth Century, including the wars between Denmark and Norway and France and Sweden. Denmark and France were allies in the Napoleon era.
Group D: Argentina, Iceland, Croatia, Nigeria
There has been no war between the two European countries of Iceland and Croatia. It is not surprising that Iceland is far from the mainland.
Group E: Brazil, Switzerland, Costa Rica, Serbia.
Serbia has no conflict with Switzerland, which is almost permanently neutral. There is no Brazil and Costa Rica. The history of Brazil's participation in the first World War was not well known, when Brazil and Serbia belonged to the same party, and they opposed the union of Germany and the Austro Hungarian Empire.
Group F: Germany, Mexico, Sweden, South Korea
The distance between Germany and Sweden is very close. There have been many battles between the two countries. During the thirty year war of Europe in seventeenth Century, the Holy Rome Empire stood side by side with Spain, while Sweden and France and Britain belonged to one side.
Mexico declared war against Hitler in Germany in 1942, but the Mexico army did not fight in Europe.
Group G: Belgium, Panama, Tunisia, England.
After the independence of Belgium from Holland in 1830, there was no war between Britain and Belgium. They were allies during the two World War. There have been no military conflicts with Tunisia in these countries.
Group H: Poland, Senegal, Columbia, Japan
In 1943, Columbia took action on axis residents living in Columbia. During World War II, Poland and Japan were two very important countries, though they did not fight directly. Germany, as an ally of Japan, invaded Poland, triggering the war.
