The Round of 16 of this year’s World Cup will pass without the Belgium – the third-placed team from the previous World Cup.
In the deciding match, Belgium failed to overcome Croatia and thus, already after the group stage, it was eliminated – 0:0.
Although there were no goals, we watched a very good match.
The first big excitement was seen in the 19th minute. Anthony Taylor scored a penalty for Croatia, but he was invited to watch the video and judged it to be offside. Dejan Lovren was in it, going for a jump before the foul on Kramarić. Millimeters decided.
The Inter striker missed at least three clear chances and is practically the main culprit why Belgium was eliminated.
Therefore, Croatia will advance to the round of 16 from the second position, as the winner is Morocco, which defeated Canada 2:1.
All the most interesting things in this match happened in the first half.
Already in the fourth minute, Morocco reached the goal, and the scorer was Hakim Ziyech.
The Moroccans continued to attack, and Yusuf En Nesiri doubled the advantage of his national team in the 23rd minute.
