The round of 16 stage of the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar is quickly approaching as the group stage of games concludes.
The first phase of the Qatar 2022 World Cup saw the 32 participating teams divided into eight groups, ranging from Group A to Group H. In the FIFA World Cup 2022 Round of 16, which kicks off the knockout stages and features a single-headed round robin format in which each team plays the other once, the top two teams from each group will advance.
After winning both of their group matches, defending champions France became the first team to advance to the Round of 16. Les Bleus defeated Denmark, while they triumphed 4-1 over Australia.
Cody Gakpo has led the Netherlands’ campaign in a similar manner, helping them advance as the highly regarded team from Group A and into the Round of 16. England, the group’s victor, took the top spot with two wins and a draw. The USA men’s football team advanced thanks to Christian Pulisic’s goal against Iran in the decisive championship game.
Brazil advanced to the next round despite playing without their star player Neymar, who was sidelined with an injury. Portugal, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, successfully advanced from Group G after defeating Ghana 3-2 and Uruguay 3-2. Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, overcame a shocking loss to Saudi Arabia to advance from Group C. Poland, which finished in second place, was able to hold off a strong challenge from Mexico by having a higher goal difference.
Twelve teams—England, the Netherlands, Argentina, Australia, Senegal, USA, France, Poland, Morocco, Brazil, Croatia, and Portugal—will compete in the Round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup 2022 IN Qatar. The hosts’ season came to an unfortunate end when they lost all three of their group games.
