2018 FIFA WORLD CUP
A lot of the favourites already knocked out. The biggest upset was undoubtedly the world champions, Germany who were knocked out at the group stage.
After Germany, other favourites like Argentina and Portugal were knocked out as well. Messi and Ronaldo after two close games. Fans of these two great players were highly disappointed. We might never see these two greats play in the World Cup because Ronaldo will be 38 for the next World Cup while Messi will be 35.
Russia stretched the game on till extra time and penalties with just one shot on goal while Spain had eight shots. Spain also made the most passes in the World Cup in one game with over 1200 passes!
They were being denied by Russia from creating many opportunities, as Russia was highly organised defensively and preventing their playmakers like Silva, Asensio or Iniesta from making key passes. Russian goalkeeper and Captain Igor Afinkeev made 2 beautiful blocks in the shootout to deny Spain the chance to progress into the quarter-final.
The full-backs were also marked well, ensuring they did not make too many dangerous crosses. Russia seemed more threatening when they were trying to hit back Spain on the counter.
Japan almost caused an upset on Belgium and was leading 2-0 till the 69th minute when Jan Vertonghen scored. Fellaini equalised into the 74th minute. It looked like the game would head into extra time, but Belgium equalised in the last few seconds of the game, in extra time thanks to Nacer Chadli.
This World Cup is proving that any team has a chance to win the World Cup, you don’t need a team full of star players to be good.
After defeating the defending world champions Germany, México were impressive against Brazil for the first 30 minutes of the match and had several close chances.
Even after Brazil scored in the second half, México still looked threatening. Our best world cup predictions tried to take into account all these possibilities, but never did we imagine so many big upsets.
