The FIFA World Cup 2022 final is just eight days away. It has been a fascinating watch with many upsets throughout the tournament. While the games may not have been of the highest quality, the entertainment was at a very high level. Big teams like Germany and Spain were knocked out rather timidly and very early in the competition.

Yesterday’s quarter-final games were gut-wrenching thrillers. Huge heartbreak for Neymar and Brazil saw them lose to a fierce Croatian side after penalties. Argentina and Netherlands’ game also went all the way to penalties after a 101st-minute equalizer by Wout Weghorst. Argentina prevailed over the Dutch, which means they will face Croatia in the first semi-final.
