Beta V.1.0 - Powered by automated translation

The 2022 Fifa World Cup group stage is now over and the focus is now firmly fixed on the knockout stages.

After 48 matches filled with drama, heroics and heartbreak, 16 teams remain to fight it out for the trophy over the next couple of weeks.

While the focus will be on the teams who will be in action over the next fortnight, spare a thought for the teams that were expected to go all the way but stumbled at the first hurdle.

A lot was expected from Germany and Belgium but they failed to get going despite excellent pedigree in an experienced squad. On the other hand, unheralded Morocco topped their group to storm into the last 16 stage.
