Jacob WhiteheadDecember 1, 2022 at 8:38 AM ESTHow are changing rooms always so neat? And, for that matter, why is the gap between 'Ah' and 'mad' so long in the stylised stadium name? I have so many questions.
Croatia blanks Belgium as snakebit Lukaku denied super sub statusThe World Cup 2022 schedule is locked in and this tournament in Qatar has been sensational as action throughout November and December will capture the imagination of the world.

Jacob WhiteheadDecember 1, 2022 at 8:33 AM ESTWho would you pick? For me, it depends on whether you're asking for their career, or right now. Career = ModricRight now = De BruyneDisagree? Jacob WhiteheadDecember 1, 2022 at 8:17 AM ESTWhat’s at stake? A place in the last-16. Croatia hold the pre-match advantage as they know that a win or a draw will be enough to see them into the knockouts. They may even qualify with a defeat if Morocco lose but they would have to lose by a lesser margin than the north Africans. Meanwhile, it’s pretty much win or bust for Belgium. Three points would guarantee safe passage but anything less would likely not be enough. A draw could see them into the last 16 but Morocco would have to lose to Canada by three or more goals, which is extremely unlikely.

They were completely toothless and could have had no complaints over a 2-0 defeat.

Leicester full-back Timothy Castagne spoke the press yesterday on both topics. "We try to show more solidarity with each other, try to be more focused and try to protect each other as well to a certain extent, ” Castagne said. “What we have to do is try to rediscover those values that we had before and try to enjoy ourselves. That's when we perform better and that's where we will try to get back to those values, even though it's an important match for us.

Amitai Winehouse·Managing Editor, NewsDecember 1, 2022 at 8:05 AM ESTThe story so farCroatia’s first game at the World Cup was disappointing as they were some way below their best in a goalless draw against Morocco. They were much better in their second game, coming behind from an early setback to cruise past Canada thanks to an inspired performance from Andrej Kramaric. It has left them on the verge of securing progression for the last-16. Belgium have been the great disappointment of this tournament and are perhaps fortunate to be going into the final group game with three points on the board. That win came courtesy of Michy Batshuayi’s winner against Canada in a game where Thibaut Courtois was on hand to keep out a penalty from Alphonso Davies. Martinez’s side could not build on the opening victory though as they were undone by Morocco in their last game.
Strikers Nico Williams and Alvaro Morata also got the nod while captain Sergio Busquets, who is a yellow card away from a suspension, remained among the starters at the Khalifa International Stadium. Japan coach Hajime Moriyasu, seeking a win against the 2010 world champions to be sure of a last-16 spot, also made five changes from the side beaten by 1-0 by Costa Rica. In defence, Shogo Taniguchi comes in for Miki Yamane, Japan's third right back in three games at the tournament after Hiroki Sakai was injured in the 2-1 win over Germany.
We need to be aggressive and play on the front foot. We need to show more control. "I don't think we were as low as people think. If we win tomorrow we're through to the last 16. "I think to a certain extent we let that criticism affect us because maybe we were hearing people say we weren't a golden generation and we started asking ourselves questions and doubting ourselves.
