The 2018 World Cup is finally here as the world's top soccer stars face off over the next month of competition.
With the World Cup only happening once every four years, you may need a quick refresher to stay up to date on what to expect.
Here are some of the top questions in the US surrounding the World Cup, according to Google Trends:
When does the World Cup start?
The 2018 FIFA World Cup begins June 14 and goes through July 15. The first match, featuring host country Russia vs. Saudi Arabia, kicks off June 14 at 11 a.m. ET.
Where is the World Cup 2018?
This year's World Cup is being held in Russia. The matches will take place throughout 11 different host cities with Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow having the first match and the final.
