    Who: Argentina vs Netherlands
    Where: Lusail Stadium in Lusail, Qatar
    When: Friday, December 9, 2022, 10 pm (19:00 GMT)

    The tantalising clash between two of the great brigades of world football at the,000- capacity Lusail Stadium comes after Lionel Scaloni’s men edged past Australia 2- 1 in the last 16 and his expert counterpart Louis van Gaal led the Dutch to a 3- 1 palm over the USA.

    “It’s going to be a very beautiful game, with two historic teams. Sadly one team has to lose and we hope it’s us who go through,” Argentina’s coach Lionel Scaloni told journalists last Sunday.

    “We face a difficult opponent, like all of them, and we hope to do well. Maybe they are not shining like past Dutch teams, but they are very clear in what they do.” Lionel Messi, Argentina’s captain, and amulet, was also clear on Sunday about the task ahead.

    “They have great players and a great coach, it’s going to be hard-fought,” he said, a day after scoring against Australia in his 1,000th career appearance.

    The 35- time-old’s influence in Qatar has grown game by game. Messi has scored three pretensions so far, and he now stands just three triumphs down from delivering Argentina a third World Cup jewel.

    Messi’s decreasingly emotional performances have checked with Argentina’s growing elevation as the event has developed, putting aside an opening shock 2- 1 defeat to Saudi Arabia to win three games on the brio since also, scoring five pretensions and conceding just formerly in the process.

    The Netherlands, meanwhile, will be concentrated on benumbing Messi in a tourney that will crop the fine forward against Virgil van Dijk – the Netherlands ’ colossal captain and one of the world’s stylish center-tails – while causing Scaloni’s charges problems of their own.

    Van Gaal’s side has been buoyed by the return to fitness of skillful bushwhacker Memphis Depay and the continued good form of frontman Cody Gakpo, who has netted three times in Qatar.

    Analogous to the strategy they employed against the USA, the Dutch may be happy to again concede control of the ball for long stretches and hang on the counterattack, exposing any spaces left at the reverse by La Albiceleste.

    Van Gaal has been under pressure in Qatar since declaring the Oranje were able of getting world titleholders for the first time. He has also faced review over his side’s alleged traditionalism, with Dutch brigades traditionally known for further extensive football.
    But the performance against the USA was a notable demonstration of what the Netherlands can produce, with Depay’s opening thing, which came on the reverse of a majestic 21- pass sequence, a graphic memorial of their quality.

    Van Dijk said on Wednesday that his platoon has the hunger and the desire to go all the way in Qatar. “We just want to go out there and show our quality, show the team spirit, show the togetherness that we have and progress, hopefully, to the next stage,” he told journalists.

    The winners of Friday’s battle will face either Brazil or Croatia in the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup.

  • Croatia vs Brazil match preview: World Cup 2022 quarter-final

    Who: Brazil vs Croatia
    Where: Education City Stadium
    When: Friday, December 9, 6 pm (15:00 GMT)

    Brazil was at its brilliant stylish on Monday, putting four past South Korea in a ruinous first-half display. The South American platoon, which tops FIFA’s rankings, will head into Friday’s match against twelfth-placed Croatia on a surge of confidence and high morale.

    Still, Croatia has proven delicate to beat and frustrated numerous opponents with their knack of dragging out every knockout game to the very end. And as World Cup finalists in 2018, they know how to play and perform in high-pressure matches. The Croats famously played out three rounds of redundant time over the knockout stages on their way to that World Cup final in Russia. This time, they crushed Japan on penalties in the round of 16.

    Yet, they will need to be careful not to let complacency set in, or Croatia could discipline them, If Brazil enjoys another bright launch to this game.

    Richarlison, Brazil’s top arranger in the event so far, enjoyed another fine game against South Korea, netting his third thing in as numerous games. Paris Saint- Germain’s Neymar returned from a group-stage injury to put in an emotional performance against South Korea and looks set to play on Saturday.

    Indeed as Brazil look to overwhelm a disciplined Croatian backline with attacking faculty, they can also calculate on Liverpool’s Alisson in thing and Chelsea’s Thiago Silva at the center of defense to keep the peril of Croatia’s star playmaker Luka Modric at bay.

    Croatia has only conceded two goals so far in this event, but it could fluently have been further if Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku had been suitable to finish any of his gilt-edged chances in their final group game. Brazil is undefeated against Croatia in their four former games.

    Still, they will enter their third World Cup semi-final, If Croatia breaks that pattern on Friday. After finishing in third place in 1998, they were runners-up in 2018 and a palm over Brazil would allow them to dream of going all the way this time.

    But they’re up against the most successful nation in the history of football. However, they will enter these finals for the ninth time, If Brazil wins. And if the five-time titleholders demanded any incitement to strive for a sixth world title, the hospitalization of Pele has served to bind their country, its suckers, and players in a single prayer to win the World Cup for the legend.

    The winner of the Brazil- Croatia quarter-final will play the platoon that comes out on top in the game between Argentina and the Netherlands, also on Friday.

  • Argentina beat Australia 2-1 to reach quarter-finals of FIFA World Cup

    Lionel Messi scored on his 1000 th career appearance in Argentina's 2-1 victory over Australia at the World Cup on Saturday to surpass his great precursor Diego Maradona's event aggregate and set up a quarter-final clash with the Netherlands. The 35-year-old Messi's goal was his third in the Qatar event and his ninth at World Cups, one further than Maradona.
    The Netherlands were the first platoon to bespeak the last eight's tickets in Qatar, beating USA 3-1 in the first knockout game on Saturday.

    Argentina went into the halftime break with a 1-0 lead, courtesy to Messi's 35th minute strike, before Julian Alvarez doubled the advantage beforehand in the next half. Alvarez's 57th minute thing gave Argentina breathing space in a match dominated by the South American side.

    Australia however gave a dread to the two- time titleholders with a thing in the 77th minute of the match, when Craig Goodwin's shot was veered off Enzo Fernandez's face for an own goal.

    There were late scares for Argentina after Craig Goodwin's shot deflected in off Enzo Fernandez, and it demanded a dramatic save from Lisandro Martinez and a fine save from Emiliano Martinez for them to hold on.

    It was a spirited trouble from Graham Arnold's side, who can be proud of their event, but it's Messi and Argentina who'll face the Netherlands in the last eight. This isn't always a fluent Argentina side but with the little genius in the platoon they can conjure.

  • FIFA World Cup 2022 elimination of Germany: The drama in Qatar

    Germany defeated Costa Rica 4-2 in their final Group E match, but Japan's unexpected victory over Spain prevented them from moving on to the World Cup knockout rounds.

    Even though Germany's national football team defeated Costa Rica 4-2 in its final Group E match on Friday, they were eliminated from the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

    Germany, four-time champions, exited the FIFA World Cup in the group stage for the second time in a row, which was shocking given their position as a superpower in the sport and the amount of excellent players on their roster.

    Despite their unexpected loss from the Russian 2018 World Cup in the group stage, Hansi Flick's Germany was among the favorites going into the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

    Given that Costa Rica and Japan are both regarded as underdogs in international football, Germany was predicted to breeze through the FIFA World Cup 2022 group stage after being placed in Group E with Spain, Costa Rica, and Japan in Qatar.

    Germany and Spain both finished with four points because of the combination of results. Still, the latter finished ahead of the Germans thanks to a higher goal difference (+6 for Spain and +1 for Germany), qualifying for the knockout rounds as the second-place team.

    The abrupt departures have some intriguing parallels. Germany was eliminated from the World Cup in Russia in the final group match thanks to two extra-time goals by South Korea, and Japan, another Asian team, will be responsible for Germany's demise in Qatar in 2022.
