The penultimate round of FIFA WC 2022 will be held on December 14 and 15, four teams will square off to book their spot in the ultimate round that is scheduled for December 18th.

Defending champions France and South American giants Argentina sealed their spot into the last 4 of the tournament with nervy wins while Croatia and Morocco arguably defeated stronger opponents to earn their place in the semi-finals.

On Wednesday France will face the surprising north Africans at Al Bayt Stadium. A day before Argentina will lock horns with Croatia, at Lusail Stadium.

Earlier on Saturday, Morocco beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal 1-0 thanks to Youssef En-Nesyri’s first-half header to go further than any African team ever has at a World Cup.
