WHAT DO YOU NEED TO QUALIFY?

This will undoubtedly be one of the matches of the day. Belgium, which on paper was a candidate to fight for the World Cup, could be left out in the Group Stage if it does not get a win or a draw. If they finish third in the group, they could even finish as leaders, provided they win and Morocco does not beat Canada.

Croatia, meanwhile, could qualify for the round of 16 even if they lose against Belgium, but for that, the Moroccans would also have to lose against the Americans, who are no longer playing for anything as they reach the last matchday of the first phase with no points.

LAST DUEL IN BELGIUM

On the other hand, the Belgian national team faced Morocco with the objective of winning, since if they won, they would automatically qualify to the next round. However, they did not count on the surprise of the Moroccan team, which was vastly superior and quickly managed to make itself felt in the match, sealing a 2-0 victory and staying alive for the last matchday. 
9:19 AM2 months ago

CROATIA'S LAST DUEL

In the last match played by the Croatian national team, they faced Canada as part of date 2, who were playing for their lives because if they did not win, they would have to say goodbye to the World Cup. The match began with the dominance of the team from the land of the Maple, which was reflected in the scoreboard with a goal by Davies. However, the Croatian team was able to recover from the blow and managed to turn the score around with a 4-1 victory, sealing 80% of their place in the round of 16 and eliminating Canada. 
9:14 AM2 months ago

THE WAIT IS OVER

The wait is over between Croatia and Belgium, both teams will once again play a World Cup match to define the lucky ones who will advance to the round of 16 in Group F. So far, Croatia is in the qualification zone, however, a defeat could take them out, on the other hand, Belgium needs a win to advance, since a draw would make them depend on Morocco's result.

Watch out for this player from Belgium:

The player to watch for this match will be the one who is today the best goalkeeper in the world; Thibaut Courtois. Currently, if we want to talk about leaders under the three posts, we must talk about the Belgian-born goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, after signing for Real Madrid, the goalkeeper began to demonstrate why he is in charge of defending the goal of the most coveted team in the world, becoming a human wall that conquered Europe last season. Now, as the defender of the Belgian goal, his duty will be to prevent them from breaking the deadlock until they reach the Qatar 2022 final.  

8:54 AM2 months ago

Watch out for this Croatia player:

The player to watch in these 90 World Cup minutes will be Real Madrid star and hero of the entire nation of Croatia, Luka Modrić. The Croatian midfielder became an icon after the great performance he had with his country in the Russia 2018 World Cup, after leading them in a surprising World Cup until the great final where they got their first World Cup runner-up. Currently Luka is one of the most important players in the midfield worldwide and he proved it last season being one of the most important pieces for Real Madrid to win the Champions League, now, in this World Cup he will seek to complete the feat not achieved, to return to Croatia World Champions.

About the Stadium:

The Áhmad bin Ali Stadium is a sports venue dedicated to the practice of soccer at professional level, it is located in Rayan, Qatar and was inaugurated in the year 2003, however, it had a reconstruction that ended in the year 2020 to host matches of the Qatar 2022 World Cup with a capacity for 60,000 spectators.

The Ahmad bin Ali stadium is inspired by the cultural symbols of Qatar to reflect the beauty of the desert and its surroundings, and also has a shopping mall inside the stadium. Once the World Cup is over, the capacity of the stadium will be reduced to 30,000 spectators.

The Ahmad bin Alin Stadium will still host one more World Cup match corresponding to the Round of 16 of between Group C First Place and Group D Second Place.

They got a big surprise

Belgium had started their World Cup adventure on the right foot after having beaten Canada by the minimum difference, who gave them a match worthy of a World Cup, however, Morocco prepared a surprise for the second match as they did not allow the Belgians to play comfortably on the field, causing mistakes that ended up costing them a tough defeat that left them as second in the group. Belgium can advance to the round of 16 with combinations of results but in their hands is also the opportunity to go through without complications with a victory.
8:24 AM2 months ago

For a place in the round of 16

The Croatian team is just half a step away from qualifying to the round of 16 of Qatar 2022, in their debut they drew 0-0 with Morocco and in the second match they won against Canada after beating them 4-1, the same result that helped them to position themselves as group winners. The team led by Luka Modric is just one point away from qualifying, however, they will have to beat Belgium, who will be looking for the three points to avoid being left out of the competition.
