Japan and South Korea losses end the World Cup dream for Asian teams.

On Monday, December 5, while Japan seems to be the better team during the match, Croatia took the win as they remained calm and relaxed during the penalty shootout.

The next day, tournament favorites Brazil clashed, and emerged victorious, against South Korea to punch their ticket to the quarterfinals.

Croatia beats Japan on penalties to reach World Cup quarterfinals

Goalkeeper Dominik Livaković made himself the national hero as Croatia beat Japan on penalties 1-1 (3-1) in order to reach the World Cup quarterfinals.

Croatia's goalkeeper blocked three of Japan's four penalties, while his team scored three out of its four attempts. It was Mario Pasalic who struck the decisive spot-kick, sending his side onto the next round.

Croatia's players quickly ran to Livaković with overjoyed faces as Japan's outstanding run at Qatar 2022 ended in heartbreak.

Brazil dance their way into World Cup quarterfinals vs South Korea

Tournament favorites Brazil practically danced its way past South Korea and into the World Cup quarterfinals, defeating their opponent 4-1 in a stunning performance in Qatar.

The five-time world champions made a solid stance, by putting their total score beyond the reach of their South Korean counterparts - a whopping four goals in the first half.

The four goals in the first half from Vinicius Jr., Neymar Jr., Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta literally wrapped up this match soon after it had just begun.

there were two matches with normal results where the favorite teams they qualified. The outsiders have not managed to made surprises so far in this phase of the World Cup, but there are still two matches where it can happen

I was very sorry to see Japan eliminated, they are a great team, they showed a great level in the world cup, they deserved to go through, but that's soccer, sometimes it is very ungrateful with the effort we put in.
 CALICUL07/12/2022 02:27:51 GMT
yes, but Croatia is not a weak team.
 geseco1208/12/2022 02:29:55 GMT
croatia has good players, but what happens is that they are already old and they don't have a lot of physique, besides they don't generate much soccer, brazil is going to beat them, I have it very clear.

When you see last games and what players brasil have,everything is on their side,but this is football and who know what can happen if they come to penalties!lot of time for both teams to think about tactic till tomorrow and this game!

croatia has a great goalkeeper, he saves a lot of penalties, and he is responsible for his country being in the semifinals, he has proved it with japan and now with brazil, saving almost 7 penalties so far in the tournament.
 CALICUL10/12/2022 00:08:07 GMT
yes, they have a good goalkeeper Thumbs Up
 geseco1212/12/2022 02:58:14 GMT
this goalkeeper will surely be the protagonist in the duel against argentina, the surprising thing about croatia is that they are hard to play and always take the games to extra time and win it in penalties, they do not fail, we must be prepared for that, and better to define it between the 90 minutes, argentina should keep that in mind.
 CALICUL12/12/2022 03:03:01 GMT
for this reason with goalkeeper, the match will be more interesting Cool
 tomex1112/12/2022 14:44:58 GMT
Both semi-finals are going to be interesting. I'm curious if Croatia will have enough strength, because they have already played two extra-times at this tournament, and whether the Moroccan team will have enough strength, because they have a lot of injuries. In my opinion, the most interesting final would be Argentina - France.
 CALICUL12/12/2022 14:51:22 GMT
all the formations have the power to reach at the final
