The 2022 World Cup is in the primary of two rest days ahead of the quarter-finals today, but that does not imply that there is not plenty of reports from the team camps in Qatar to dive into. There will likely be regular updates throughout the day as all eight nations prepare for his or her respective last-eight clashes later this week.
The ultimate round-of-16 motion on Tuesday turned heads as Morocco stunned certainly one of the tournament favourites Spain, dumping them out on penalties. Walid Regragui’s side have now finished above Croatia in Group F and beaten Belgium and Spain while only conceding one goal on their approach to the quarter-finals.
Morocco’s reward for the historic result’s a gathering with Portugal, who discovered their mojo after Fernando Santos dropped Joao Cancelo and Cristiano Ronaldo against Switzerland. Goncalo Ramos’ World Cup debut hat-trick helped steer them to a 6-1 triumph, cementing their status as tournament contenders.
They joined Argentina, the Netherlands, Brazil, Croatia, England and France in the subsequent round ahead of the clashes to be played on Friday and Saturday. But there’s plenty of reports to tuck into within the meantime, so stay tuned as Express Sport provides all the newest.
