WELCOME TO DAY 4 OF THE 2022 WORLD CUP!!! Day 3 brought us one of the biggest upsets in tournament history as Lionel Messi’s Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia, proving this World Cup could be a lot more surprising than usual. and that every match is worth the detour. Day 4 is a very interesting one, with three of the favorites making their debuts and plenty of Barcelona players in action.
The day begins at the venue for the tournament’s opening fixture at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, with 2018 runners-up Croatia playing a riveting Group F opener against Morocco. Group F is arguably the most interesting of the tournament, with all four teams entering this one with realistic chances of qualification. Morocco have a squad full of European talent throughout the squad and have a real chance of beating a Croatian side who still have Luka Modric but haven’t done a great job of evolving and rebuilding after their dream run in Russia.
The next two games are the first of Group E: the second match of the day marks the debut for Germany, who come into this one with the usual high expectations thanks to their high number of Bayern Munich players and a solid coaching work of Hansi Flick. since taking office 18 months ago. Germany are young and dangerous, and they also have a Barca player in goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen who will watch the entire tournament from the bench unless something happens to Manuel Neuer.
Matchday 3’s third game is the much-anticipated debut for Spain’s Luis Enrique, who enter the tournament with great hope and pressure to continue their run to the semi-finals of the Euros of the year. last. They have a Barca legend as a manager and a huge current eight Blaugrana stars in the team, and the likes of Pedri, Gavi and Ansu Fati could prove crucial for La Roja‘s chances. Their debut is against Costa Rica, who are still a brutal opponent for everyone at the World Cup thanks in large part to goalkeeper Keylor Navas who always takes it to another level playing for his country.
Finally, it’s time for Belgium to finally reach their potential at international level as they begin their World Cup journey against Canada in Al Rayyan. This has the potential to be one of the best matches in the group stage as both teams enjoy playing fast, attacking and entertaining football. The Canadians will have their talisman for this one as Alphonso Davies recovered from injury in time for the opener, and Canada absolutely dominated CONCACAF qualifying and could easily be the surprise of the tournament. Belgium have all their famous stars back for one more international run, and Kevin De Bruyne is still a spectacle.
It promises to be a very fun day of World Cup football, and you are welcome to join us to follow and comment on all the action. vamos!
