Croatia vs Brazil – Quarter Finals Preview:
The first quarter finals of the World Cup will be played between Croatia and Brazil. Brazil registered a compelling 6-1 win over Switzerland while Croatia narrowly won against Japan on the penalties.
On a match-up level, it would be interesting to see if Neymar Jr. leads his team into the semi-finals or Luka Modric continues the good work and keeps his team on track for another world cup final.
Netherlands vs Argentina – Quarter Finals Preview:
The semi-finalists from the 2014 FIFA World Cup will be up against each other in the second quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup. In 2014, Argentina had sneaked past the Dutch on penalties.
A highly competitive match is expected and anticipated here as well. It would be a match-up between Lionel Messi’s magical goal scoring ability and Virgil Van Digk’s reliable defence. Regardless of who wins the quarter-finals clash, an electric game of football is expected between the two top quality sides.
Morocco vs Portugal – Quarter Finals Preview:
This is one of the more unexpected contests of the quarter-finals. No one expected Morocco to make it this far. Nobody gave them much of a chance against Spain. Their win against Belgium was more of a surprise for everyone. But they have done unbelievably well this year to make it to the quarter-finals.
Considering the below-par form of Cristiano Ronaldo, a highly competitive match is expected between the two sides. It would be interesting to see if Cristiano Ronaldo takes his team through to the semi-finals or Morocco manage to surprise the world one more time.
Regardless of the results, the Moroccan team deserves all the respect, appreciation, and praise in the world for their efforts and excellence.
England vs France – Quarter Finals Preview:
England and France will play the last quarter-finals match of the FIFA World Cup. This is expected to be the most thrilling match of the tournament as the two title contenders will be up against each other for a test of skill, technique, and nerves.
Mbappe will be crucial for France’s chances while the coordinated effort of England can take them through.
It would be interesting to see who makes it through to the top-4. The World Cup 2022 is getting more and more interesting with every passing day.
