Germany will look to maintain their perfect World Cup qualifying record when they travel to Prague to face the Czech Republic on Friday. Joachim Löw’s side have won all six of the matches they’ve played so far, and find themselves five points clear of second-placed Northern Ireland with four games to play. It seems only a matter of time before they book their spot in Russia. The same can’t be said for their opponents.
England are yet to lose a game in their World Cup qualifying campaign, but Gareth Southgate’s side find themselves only two points clear of second-placed Slovakia and three ahead of Slovenia and the dreaded third place. That means the Three Lions can’t ease up just yet, and that they’ll be hoping a win over Malta on Friday moves them considerably closer to booking their place at Russia 2018.
Portugal have won five straight World Cup qualifiers, but a solitary defeat to Switzerland on the opening matchday means they still find themselves three points off the pacesetters as we head into the final four games. They'll look to keep the pressure on with another win on Thursday, when they play host to the Faroe Islands at Boavista Estádio do Bessa XXI. They cruised to a 6-0 win in the reverse fixture, with the Faroe Islanders' only victory coming away at bottom side Latvia last October.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
