Summary of the day

What an earthquake! Third in the 2018 World Cup and favorite for a first star, Belgium left Qatar in the group stage. Unable to find the opening in the defense of Croatia (0-0), despite numerous situations in the second half, notably by newcomer Romelu Lukaku, the Red Devils of Roberto Martinez fail in third place in group F and are eliminated prematurely. Second, the Croats leave the first place to Morocco, who defeated Canada (2-1). It’s over for Belgium and Canada.

In the round of 16, Luka Modric’s partners will meet Japan, while the Atlas Lions will face Spain. The Japanese clinched first place in Group E by overthrowing the Spaniards (2-1), a new prestigious victory after that obtained in the opening against Germany. Thanks to a better goal difference than Germany (+6 against +1), which defeated Costa Rica (4-2) in vain, La Roja, coached by Luis Enrique, saved face by finishing second in the group with four points. Germany and Costa Rica are eliminated.
