And then, we’re down to the last 8 teams who will battle it out for the Quarter Finals on December 9-10. After that dramatic knock-out games where most of the Top1 teams from the group stage prevailed except for Japan who lost to Croatia, 3-1 win on penalties following a 1-1 deadlock at the end of extra time.
The last eight teams have now booked their spots in the Quarter Finals. On 9th December, the first game between Brazil and Croatia will be played in Education City Stadium (6:00 pm), while the second game between Netherlands and Argentina will be played in Lusail Stadium (10:00 pm).
Meanwhile, the third quarter-final match on 10th December between Portugal and Morroco will be played in Al Thumama Stadium (6:00 pm), and the last game between France and England will be played in Al Bayt Stadium (10:00 pm).
Winners of each Quarter Final game will meet again for the SEMI-FINALS scheduled on December 13 and 14. Indeed, we’re almost on the homestretch of FIFA WORLD CUP QATAR 2022 and personally, we’ve never enjoyed each football match like this before.
I’m sure, many people who were not familiar with the game before will never see football the same way again. With the FINALS approaching, and even the AFC ASIAN CUP in 2023 on hand (as Qatar being the host, again)… the football fever will stay in the country for a long time even after this World Cup.
