FIFA World Cup: Leo Messi's WC dreams on line against Dutch; Neymar's Brazil face Croatian challenge
FIFA World Cup 2022: The Football World Cup 2022 has now entered its Business end of the tournament as the final 8 teams are all set to have a crack at each other. Former World Champions Brazil will be up against a resilient Croatia side, while legendary striker Lionel Messi's Argentina face a litmus test against the Netherlands.
The Brazilian side has been in decent touch in the tournament. They topped Group G with 2 wins in 3 games. In the round of 16 match, the Seleção's outclassed their Korean opponents by a comfortable margin of 4-1. With the likes of Neymar, Richarlison, Vinicius Jr. and Lucas Paquetá peaking at the right time, Brazil are the side to beat in the competition. Meanwhile, the Croatian side is unbeaten in the tournament so far and they have downed the giant killers' Japan in the last 16 in a nail-biter. Their goalkeeper Dominik Livaković starred the other night. The 2018's runners up Croatia have a robust side and cannot be taken lightly.
