CS:GO isn't the only thing our players are interested in; the guys also make time for football. For every football fan, the World Cup is an event that can’t be missed, and HellRaisers are no exception! We posed five questions to our squad and also asked them to make predictions about which teams would advance out of each group. Here's how it all worked out!

1. Which national team do you root for the most (other than your home country)?
—  ANGE1: I'll root for Argentina. This is most likely Messi's last chance to win the World Cup, and he 100% deserves it.
—  bondik: Argentina and Spain.
—  ISSAA: England.
—  woxic: France, Argentina, Portugal.

2. Which national team is the most underrated?
—  ANGE1: I think that Iceland could surprise us all, just like Greece did at Euro 2004. Sometimes it's better to have a good team than a bunch of good players.
—  bondik: Perhaps, it's going to be the home team. Home soil does increase performance after all.
—  ISSAA: Belgium.
—  woxic: Iceland.

3. Name three teams that will have successful tournaments.
—  ANGE1: Argentina, France, Germany.
—  bondik: Argentina, Spain, Brazil. I also want to include the German national team, who are the current world champions.

—  ISSAA: Brazil, France, Germany.
—  woxic: England, France, Germany.

​4. Who will score the most goals and be named Player of the Tournament?
—  ANGE1Messi.
—  bondik: I hope it'll be Messi. But, there are many worthy players.
—  ISSAA: Messi or Neymar.
—  woxic: Messi or Mbappé.

5. If you played football and competed in the World Cup, which national team would you be on and which position would you play? (Excluding your country’s national team of course).
—  ANGE1: I think that the national team isn't something you get to choose. I cannot imagine myself in anything but the yellow and blue of Ukraine as a striker.
—  bondik: I'd really like to play shoulder to shoulder with Lionel Messi as a forward. I'd wait for my moment, and I'm sure it'd come.
—  ISSAA: I'd play for England, as a defender.
—  woxic: France.
