It’s always exciting to get these shots of fans waiting for the game to start – knowing at any time later today they could be the ones getting a TV close-up in absolute misery as their team makes one of Qatar.

A little more detail about those Croatia and Brazil teams. Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic has made two changes to his team with Borna Sosa returning to the line-up after missing their last 16 match against Japan through illness while forward Bruno Petkovic makes way for Mario Pasalic to bolster the midfield.

Brazil are unchanged, with first-choice left-back Alex Sandro on the bench as he has not yet fully recovered from injury. Sandro was substituted in the 86th minute of Brazil’s second Group G match against Switzerland with a muscle problem in his left hip.


Team news: Croatia v Brazil – two changes for Croatia, Brazil unchanged

Team news: Croatia v Brazil – two changes for Croatia, Brazil unchanged

World Cup quarter-final: Croatia v Brazil, 15:00 GMT, Education City Stadium

Croatia has never lost a World Cup quarter-final. They don’t want to start now. Pasalic and Sosa enter. Striker Petković drops to the bench, as does Rangers defender Borna Barišić.

Croatia: Dominik Livakovic, Borna Sosa, Ivan Perisic, Dejan Lovren, Mateo Kovacic, Andrej Kramaric, Luka Modric, Marcelo Brozovic, Mario Pasalic, Josko Guardiol, Josip Juranovic

Brazil are bidding to reach their fifth semi-final in the last 28 years. That’s some record. The Seleção had won both of their previous World Cup matches against Croatia. They are unchanged from dancing their way to victory over South Korea.

Brazil: Alisson; Eder Militao, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Danilo, Casemiro, Lucas Paqueta, Neymar, Vinicius Jr., Raphinha, Richarlison

Your referee today is Michael Oliver (England), his compatriots Stuart Burt and Gary Beswick man the line. The fourth official is Mustapha Ghorbal (Algeria)

Your MBM virtuoso today is Scott Murray. He says “Brazil are strong favorites to progress to the semi-finals against the Netherlands or Argentina … but while their attack is flying, Alisson had to make three big saves on Monday night and Croatia may not let them get away with such defensive gloom again.”

I will continue this live blog with all the latest World Cup news until the start.

Good news everyone, Croatia has arrived at the stadium.

There are only seven World Cup matches left (assuming you don’t count the third-place playoff), and we should have the team news for Brazil vs. Croatia in no time.

That’s right, my fellow O Martin has now returned from his midday constitutional constitution, so I’ll hand you back to him to take us to the afternoon’s live association football. goodbye

Morocco has not yet been seen “at 100%”, their manager, Walid Regragui, reckons. “We have already achieved great things, but we feel it is not enough, we want to go further,” Regragui said at a press conference on Friday.

“We’ve already proven all the data analysts wrong about Belgium’s chance and also Spain’s. They all thought we were going to lose to them.”

However, their key defender Nayef Aguerd is a doubt for Saturday’s tie against Portugal following a hamstring injury and other key players, such as captain Romain Saiss and midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, are also carrying injuries.

“We will not hide it, we are tired,” said the coach, who was given the job just three months before the World Cup. “But when you go this far in the tournament you have to rely on everyone in the squad. So if Nayef can’t play then someone else will have to take his place. We’re not going to make excuses, we’re here on a mission.

“You haven’t seen Morocco at 100%, but mentally we are strong,” he added.

Some Portugal news now, from PA Media, as Fernando Santos again had to field a lot of questions about that guy who started on the bench against Switzerland, and the Portugal manager asked for an end to “these controversies” about his selection decisions.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos revealed he had a “frank conversation” with Cristiano Ronaldo to explain why he dropped him, but insisted the veteran forward was not threatening to quit the World Cup. Reports in Portugal claim Ronaldo is set to leave his country after learning he will be on the bench for the last-16 clash with Switzerland … Santos revealed he told Ronaldo he would not start on matchday game, and admitted international. football’s record goalscorer took some convincing.

Santos said: “We did have a conversation and it would be very bad if we didn’t have that conversation. Since I took the helm, we needed to talk and have a close relationship with the players, that’s my approach.

“He is the captain of our squad and with what he represents for Portuguese football, for the Portuguese people and the national team, of course I had to talk to him. So when we had this conversation, it was on the match day, after the lunch The only conversation that day was and I explained why he wasn’t going to play.

“We met and I explained why he wouldn’t be one of the starters, so he wouldn’t be surprised. In my office, I told him about strategy that it is better if you don’t play, I would save him for the second half if necessary.

“Cristiano, for obvious reasons, was not very happy about it. He was always a beginner. He said ‘do you really think it’s a good idea?’ But we had a normal conversation. I explained my views, he accepted. We had a frank and normal conversation.

“He never told me that he wanted to leave our national team. I think it’s time we stopped with this conversation and these controversies, because an example of what I just said is what he did during the match. He warmed up to the players even though he didn’t start. He celebrated all our goals. And at the end he was the one who invited his colleagues to thank the fans. It’s time to leave it alone.”

And here’s more on that Lloris header from Ben Fisher:

Fraternal pre-match celebrations in full swing in Doha…

Hugo Lloris does not underestimate England. The French goalkeeper says he has observed a clear improvement in tomorrow’s opponents. “If we compare the two sides, there were more English players in the World Cup in Russia than French players,” said Lloris, “and if you look at the England squad, they were semi-finalists in the World Cup and runners-up at the World Cup. last euros

“There is real progress and I believe that this team is becoming more mature and ready to compete for trophies. They were a bit unlucky at the last Euros, they came very close but they are here to win. On our side there are many changes with the new generation of players, they are ready to compete because they play for the best teams in Europe, we have a good mix.

“We have to make sure we will be ready to challenge England on Saturday because it will be a big battle.”

Thanks Martin, our world domination venture starts here. And with Orient’s game at Crewe cancelled, we will have no choice tomorrow afternoon but to focus on Morocco v Portugal, and there will be plenty of attention on Portugal’s hat-trick hero Gonçalo Ramos. Will Unwin wrote about his rise here:

When Gonçalo Ramos moved from his childhood home in the Algarve to Lisbon to join Benfica’s academy as a teenager, he struggled to settle in, often crying for his parents. His determination to get through the tough times ensured that he would make the most of his talent and helped shape him as a person.

I’ll hand you over to Tom Davies now for an hour while I take a break – from one Leyton Orient supporter to another. We are gradually conquering the whole operation.

Whisper it, but England’s record at the World Cup quarter-finals isn’t actually that great. The stories in them are though, as Rob Bleaney here runs through all nine of them in a sequence that began with a 4-2 defeat to Uruguay in 1954.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Gareth Southgate’s England and the way they have tried to take the drama out of tournament football and replace it with control, is that the 2018 quarter-finals, an unremarkable and comfortable 2-0 victory over a Swedish team. that has historically been a nuisance for the Three Lions (they went from 1968 to 2011 without recording a single win against the Swedes in 12 meetings) is the least interesting of the lot.

England have confirmed that everyone was in training today – including the returning Raheem Sterling.

The social media at Conmebol must be rubbing their hands with glee at the prospect that at the end of the day we could be in a position where a Brazil v Argentina semi-final is on the horizon, with guaranteed South American representation in the World Cup finals for only the second time in the last five tournaments. 2006, 2010 and 2018 produced an all-European final. To get in the mood, they posted a reminder of how Argentina progressed at the expense of the Netherlands on penalties in 2014.

A few more words about Didier Deschamps’ England here from this morning’s press conference.

Reuters reports that Deschamps, who won the World Cup with France as a player and coach, said he did not see many weaknesses in the England team, but they had some “somewhat less strong points”.

“Pace is often one of the keys – when you are fast, then the opponents have less time to organize. But you need more than just pace to score goals,” said Deschamps.

“You can stop a lot of things, but it’s very hard to stop someone very quickly, especially in transition. England are very strong in transitions – more than half of their goals have come from quick counter-attacks. But they also have other qualities – they have technical ability, the ability to score goals and ability on strokes.”

We could see some movement in the gold boot table today. Lionel Messi, Richarlison and Cody Gakpo should all feature in the matches, and they are all three goals behind the first Kylian Mbappé, who you might like to score against England tomorrow. You can check the latest table here:

Phil Foden was dragged into Big Brother’s living room in England’s social media video studio, and admitted that in the past he had broken his dwarf’s windows a few times while playing football. He said the experience of scoring for England in a World Cup was “surreal” and “one of the best feelings I’ve ever had in my career”:

The moment Harry [Kane] played that cross and, you know, my eyes lit up, and I knew I could just win the chance. Scoring in a World Cup is something I’ve always dreamed of. As a kid, playing in the streets, and you know, people used to say, one day you’re going to put on an England shirt and score, and I really didn’t think too much of it. And then, now to say that I did it is a surreal moment.

He also said he was confident going into the match against France, urging England and his team-mates to stick to the game plan:

No matter the opponent, just stick to what you know, don’t change anything, and stick to the same game plan. And I feel like everyone has done that. We know they have great talents, in Mbappé and things, but you know on our day, when we play the football we play, we can hurt any team in the world. So let’s stick to our game plan and be confident in what we’re doing.

Gareth Southgate doubted whether Raheem Sterling will play a part in England’s World Cup quarter-final with France only returned to Qatar on Friday, reports PA. It quotes the English coach as saying:

We will have to evaluate that. He missed a lot of training and had two long flights. That’s not good preparation for a game of this standard but let’s see how he does.

He felt the need to support his family and be there for his family and that’s a simple decision for me – I have to support the player. I remember Fabian Delph went home, his wife was waiting in Russia. We did the same.

There are moments for every individual where family becomes most important. I always support that. Of course I want the best players available and want to win football matches. But as a manager you have to recognize that there are certain moments in people’s lives that are more important at that particular time.

It’s just past eleven in the morning in the UK, so can I tempt you with the Dutch pastries with Andries Noppert for some reason?

From stadiums to markets, the presence of Palestinian flags across Qatar was hard to miss. Although World Cup organizers have said that the entire tournament should not involve politics, it appears that the cause of “free Palestine” is being embraced by Qataris, people across the Arab world, as well as some visiting soccer fans.

Encounters between Arab football fans and Israeli journalists have gone viral on social media – along with other clips of an England supporter shouting “free Palestine” during TV interviews, including one with an Israeli broadcaster.

Although neither Israel nor Palestine are playing in the tournament, support for Palestine featured prominently at the Middle East’s first World Cup, as our international correspondent Michael Safi explains in this video.

France coach Didier Deschamps was in front of the media circus in Qatar this morning, where he was asked about his opinion of his English counterpart Gareth Southgate. He had some pretty warm words. Certainly hotter than the words between Louis van Gaal and Ángel Di María, which added a little extra spice to today’s conflict between the Netherlands and Argentina. Deschamps said:

I really like Gareth. We met on a few occasions and talked about a few things. Not everyone holds him in high esteem in his own country, that’s not because he wasn’t a good footballer himself – he had a long and distinguished career and he’s also a very good coach. He has enabled England to get very good results over the years and I like him a lot.

PA also reports that Deschamps was inevitably asked about Kylian Mbappé:

I’m sure England will be prepared to face Kylian, as our previous opponents did. But he is in a position to make the difference. Even in the last match when he didn’t have his best match, he didn’t show his top form compared to previous games, he was still decisive.

We have other players who can also be dangerous and that helps us not to be too dependent on Kylian. But Kylian is Kylian, and he always will be. He has that ability to make the difference at any moment in the match.

If you asked me “Where will the World Cup quarter-final between England and France be won and lost?” I probably would have said helplessly “At Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor?” and left it at that, such is my tactical understanding.

Fortunately, they asked Jonathan Wilson instead…

England may not play until tomorrow night, but we have some English involvement in today’s quarter-finals. Michael Oliver will be the referee today for Brazil against Croatia at 3pm GMT, and alongside him manning the line will be Stuart Burt and Gary Beswick. Oliver previously officiated at Japan v Costa Rica and Saudi Arabia v Mexico in the group stages.

Croatia not only bought their parked bus to Qatar, but also their massive big flag.

With the 2022 men’s World Cup moving to the winter, we are just a few months away from the next World Cup – the women’s competition kicks off in Australia and New Zealand on 20 July 2023. Fifa today released its latest updated women’s rankings. . No change at the top with USWNT still the team to beat.

Philipp Lahm writes his latest column for us today, saying European culture dominates the World Cup but Argentina can teach a tactical lesson:

For me, Argentina is the best in this World Cup. All the players mastered the basic virtue of football: one-on-one, defensively and offensively, aggressively but fairly. These individual skills, which have been lost sight of in the debates about tactics and systems, are what matter if you want to win. The Argentine players show unconditional intensity. They form a unit with the many fans because they see that there is a team on the pitch. You can see why they play football.

The coach, Lionel Scaloni, has everything under control. Normally, national teams are less organized because they rarely train together. But Argentina performs harmoniously as a club team in the Champions League. Their plan: consistently win the ball and defend forward. It’s a defensive idea, but designed to be proactive. Because Argentina can also keep the ball.

In addition, Scaloni thought about how to integrate the outstanding class of the 35-year-old Lionel Messi. In an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung, he told how he deliberately did without Messi at the beginning of his time in charge so that the team could find its way without the star. Then he integrated him.

By the way, Catia is emailing me to complain about my constant insistence on treating Portugal as Cristiano Ronaldo+Portugal. She says:

As a Portuguese fan it is really frustrating that basically all the news reduces one the best international sides in the world to a soap opera about one man. Please stop, we have amazing players, we have the explosive striker of the World Cup in Ramos, the greatest example of longevity at the highest level of the sport in Pepe, the best mix of creativity and hard work in the Bruno Bernardo -Felix. a trio Portugal are the top scoring side along with England, provided the biggest thrashing in a World Cup knockout game since who knows when, and all people are talking about is Ronaldo. Enough!

That’s what I said. Maybe someone should tell CR7.

The Fifa website’s preview of today’s Brazil v Croatia game (3pm GMT) features some quotes from Vinicius Junior. He says:

It will be a very difficult match. They came second in the last World Cup. We are preparing to play a great match. We will give our best in the game like we did against Korea by pressing them and trying to win, which is always very important for us.

He also skillfully conveyed the role of doing anything regarding Luka Modrić, saying:

Modrić is a great player. He taught me a lot – not only on the pitch but also off it. I am very happy that I know him and that I see him every day [at Real Madrid]. Playing against Modrić will be very special. As for neutralizing him, I’ll leave that to Casemiro because he can do a better job than me!

I had only skimmed through the Argentinian media before tonight’s clash and was interested to read in Clarín the general level of unhappiness in the media with Argentina’s arrangement.

Adrian Maladesky writes that coach Lionel Scaloni’s questioning of the way the press reported on the team questioning whether they were for Argentina or for the Netherlands “suggests a return to a plea of ​​complicity with the press, which is not only opposed to what it should be doing journalism. but also shows that the national team is not aware of how badly they handle communication.”

He continues by saying “For a long time, the national team seems stubborn not to understand the role of the press, which, due to the closed training sessions, the lack of official information or any conferences that are not mandatory by Fifa, are pushed. to look for alternative sources .”

It all sounds a little Fabio Capello-era England, and we know how that went.

Sean Ingle is in Doha for the Guardian and writes for us today about how England coach Gareth Southgate has incorporated learnings from other sporting disciplines into his approach to coaching the national side:

A key member of Southgate’s setup was New Zealand coach Owen Eastwood, who has also worked with South Africa’s cricketers, his homeland’s rugby team and Team GB. Eastwood emphasizes the concept of Whakapapa – the Māori way of explaining your place in a tribe or family. Applied to sport, it emphasizes creating pride in the shirt and leaving a legacy for others to follow.

Eastwood also points out that trust and openness are important. “People thrive when there is consistency and calmness around the environment,” he says. “One of the things about Gareth’s leadership is that he really sees it as a players’ game. He’s there to facilitate them to reach what their potential could be. It’s not about him. He’s not the hero of it – the players are the heroes of it.”

It’s a philosophy similar to that of Danny Kerry, who led the GB women’s hockey team to gold at the Rio 2016 Olympics and has also spoken to Southgate. One of the team’s stars, Georgie Twigg, says there are clear parallels with what the hockey team did and what she sees with England’s players in Doha.

“We worked very closely with psychologists on what we, as a team, wanted our culture to look like: how we wanted to behave and hold each other accountable,” she says. “We had to, because we were a group of 30 girls training day after day, with massively different personalities and ages.”

Gary Lineker clearly enjoyed this potted history of West Germany and Germany going through World Cup history and breaking hearts, and I suspect you will too. It has subtitles, so you don’t even have to put the sound on, although it’s more fun if you do.

Youssouf Fofana came across as very funny in France’s media yesterday, not least when he was asked about Kyle Walker’s prospects of stopping Kylian Mbappé on Saturday evening.

Walker said “we respect that he’s a good player in good shape at the moment, but I’m not going to roll out a red carpet for him and tell him to go and score.”

Reuters quotes Fofana as replying “Hats off to him. If he can stop Kylian, good for him. But there are 19 other teams in the French league waiting for the answer on how to stop Kylian, and the truth is on the pitch.”

Fofana was also asked about the atmosphere in the French camp – not always traditionally the happiest of dressing rooms. “The atmosphere is tight, tight, tight,” he joked.

“No, I’m kidding,” he continued. “We can wear headphones, so if we don’t like the chosen music for the band, then we can listen to our own music.”

Here are some very impressive behind the scenes drone shots of the Education City stadium where Brazil and Croatia will face each other later today.

Not included in the tour, Qatar World Cup chief executive saying “death is a natural part of life – whether it’s at work, whether it’s in your sleep.”

Let’s start previewing Morocco’s historic meeting with Portugal tomorrow. Ed Aarons writes for us on how they aim to break new ground after previous African heartbreaks at this stage of the tournament:

It is fitting that the Atlas Lions will be the next to try their luck in reaching the semi-finals, as Morocco became the first African side to pick up a point, at the 1970 World Cup. While Zaire – sub-Saharan Africa’s first representatives – were humiliated 9-0 by Yugoslavia at the next World Cup, it looked as though Pelé might have been onto something when Tunisia became the first African side to record victory at the tournament in 1978. with a 3-1 victory over Mexico. Four years later, Algeria shocked the world by defeating West Germany.

But after Gary Lineker broke Cameroonian hearts at Italia 90 and despite Nigeria claiming Africa’s first gold medal in men’s football at the 1996 Olympics, it would be another 12 years before an African side cracked the last eight again.

Senegal’s triumph thanks to Henri Camara’s golden goal in extra time in the second round against Sweden – having already ousted reigning champions France – meant many people expected them to beat Turkey in the quarter-finals. But substitute Ilhan Mansiz scored another golden goal in the fourth minute of extra time – the last before the rule was scrapped by Fifa – after a grubby 90 minutes to deny them a place in the last four.

It was Ghana’s turn eight years later at the first World Cup on African soil. Had it not been for Luis Suárez’s infamous handball to deny Dominic Adiyiah’s goal-bound header and Asamoah Gyan’s subsequent penalty miss at Soccer City in Johannesburg then the Black Stars would have played the Netherlands in the semi-finals. And so to Qatar. Morocco’s players will carry not only the hopes and dreams of Africa when they face Portugal but also of the Arab world.

It does seem a little crazy that we are nine days away from a World Cup final and also about twelve days away from the restart of Europe’s top club football season, but here we are. Paris St Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has said Lionel Messi is happy at the Ligue 1 champions and they will open discussions on a possible contract extension after the World Cup, Reuters reports.

Messi, who has 12 goals and 14 assists for PSG in all competitions this season, moved to PSG from Barcelona in 2021 on a two-year contract that expires in the summer.

Asked if the 35-year-old was interested in extending his stay in Paris, Al-Khelaifi told Sky Sports, “for sure”.

“He has done great this season for us, he has scored many goals and assists for the national team and for the club,” he added.

“So what we agreed – that after the World Cup, sit down together. But both sides – our side of the club and him – are very happy, so we will talk after the World Cup.”



World Cup football is back, back, back. Yes, after two whole days without a game, we have two spitting quarterfinals.

At 3pm GMT, Brazil will surely go into their match with Croatia thinking they have more than enough of a dancing frontline to progress. But the Croatians are nothing if not stubborn, they have never lost a quarter-final, and they have taken four of their last World Cup knockout matches past 90 minutes and won each time. Can they keep the seleção at bay?

Then at 7pm GMT, evoking memories of the 1978 final and 2014 semi-final, it’s one of the all-time great World Cup matches: Netherlands vs Argentina. Can Messi get closer to that elusive winner’s medal, or will Louis van Gaal’s cunning tactics give the Dutch the upper hand?

By the end of the day we could face the delicious prospect of a Brazil vs Argentina semi-final. Or Croatia and the Netherlands, two teams that have previously reached the World Cup final but never lifted the trophy, could walk. I can’t wait.

Before then we’ll have all the build up to those games, news from the camps of Morocco, England, France and Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of his turn tomorrow, and time for lots of chatter and idle speculation. Please drop me a line at [email protected]
