FIFA World Cup 2018 has entered the round of 16 and the pre-quarterfinal knockout stage, in fact, the stage from now on is actually knockout stage till the end. It is a ‘do or die’ situation for all 16 qualifiers.
The round starts from tomorrow Saturday when Argentina takes on France and Uruguay takes on Portugal. All the games in last 16 round would be interesting to watch, the pressure is building up even more in these games.
There were few teams quite lucky to stay in the last 16 including Argentina and Spain while some were the top performers including, Uruguay, Belgium, and Croatia.
By looking at the past performance it can be said that 2 out of these 3 teams Uruguay, Croatia, and Belgium we can expect to see in quarterfinals.
While it could be the last stage for Spain and Argentina, as we have already seen the champions departing in the early group stage. But nothing can be said for sure, these teams have the ability to turn upside down at the last minute the way Spain does in their final match.
