Anticipation amongst fans is reaching fever pitch with the first game of Russia 2018 little more than a day away.
The world will be watching as tournament hosts Russia face Saudi Arabia at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Thursday.
Before then, here are some of the latest and greatest World Cup jokes and tweets:

You're right – that World Cup you watched as an impressionable youth really *was* the best ever.

Always wondered what Sky Sports News viewing figures are like during the World Cup Final. You can choose to watch the match live & free on BBC or ITV…. or pay to watch Iain Dowie watch it on a telly you can't see.

Politics aside, I really hope the Saudi team is humiliated in every World Cup match

Tonite at the gym, a man told me he thought Italy could win the 2018 World Cup. I told him they had the same chances as the USA. He told me I was crazy & knew nothing about world football. I said “you mean soccer?” He walked away. #WorldCup2018

This feels very much like a throughball for an 'England schooled at the World Cup' headline pic.twitter.com/x4YfxyYg2x

"Can't get excited about the World Cup, club over country for me."
Quite lucky Doncaster didn't qualify then isn't it. Miserable bastards.

Try and listen to Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve without getting pumped up for the World Cup this year. If that doesn’t tell you that England are going all the way then nothing will.

England have flown out for the World Cup. They put the bus in the short stay car park.

Talking World Cup at lunch a ‘lad’ joined in with the hot take of ‘you know, we put a run together who knows maybe we go one more than we did last time’ I asked who’s we, he said ‘us, the U.S’. I was gonna tell him, but he said he’s got his jersey ready, so why spoil the fun. Lol

I gave my wife £50 and told her to go out on Thursday and leave me in peace while I watched World Cup football.
"I won't need that much," she laughed.
"You will," I said. "It's got to last you five weeks."
