The result surprises the group stage matches of the 2022 World Cup held in Qatar, whose competitions concluded yesterday, Friday, so the round of 16 campaign begins today, Saturday. The group-stage matches of the World Cup witnessed the fall of the major teams' training in football.
The fall of the Germans:
The machinery team started its career with great disappointment for all its fans after losing the first match against Japan with two goals to one, scored by Ritsu Doan and Tako Asamu, while Gundogan scored for the Germans with a penalty kick. The German national team did not write this beginning but rather completed the bad march in the World Cup by leaving the group stage after Spain and Japan advanced to the round of 16.
Spaniards and technology:
The Spanish Matador team were not better off than Germany after Spain lost to Japan in the last round of the group stage with two goals to one, scored by Ritsu Doan and Oh Tataka, while Alvaro Morata scored for the Spaniards, but this result did not prevent Spain from advancing to the round of 16.
The Brazil national team followed the path of Germany and Spain and lost the third round of the group stage against Cameroon with a goal without a response scored by Vincent Abu Bakr, which is the first victory for the Cameroonian Lions at the expense of Brazil since 2003 in the Confederations Cup when the African team won with a goal without a response scored by Samuel Eto'o, who is currently the president of the Cameroonian Football Federation.
Portugal was unable to maintain its lead against South Korea, with a goal scored by Ricardo Horta, but it conceded two goals that lost the match, scored by Kim Young-wan and Hwang Hee-chan, a result that promoted Portugal and Korea to the round of 16 of the World Cup.
