Who's going to be the winner in the 2022 World Cup?
Now that the quarterfinal field has been set, eight teams will battle it out for the World Cup trophy.

The quarterfinals promise to deliver some heart-pounding, invigorating contests. Of course, Brazil is arguably the start favorites against Croatia, but the rest of the three matches are also likely to be exciting as well.
Lionel Messi's Argentina looked uneasy at times in their Round of 16 2-1 victory against Australia, and they will have to bring their A-game against Netherlands if they are truly serious in aiming for the top four.
Morocco turned out to be quite a surprise in Qatar 2022. Even though Portugal have enjoyed a clinical run so far, they will have to be wary of the possible threat possessed by Walid Regragui's men in the quarters.
The match between France and England can be noted as the most exciting fixture in the quarterfinals, considering the incredible talent coming from these two squads.
France puts its hope on the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann, whereas England defenders will have to give it their best in what is going to be their biggest obstacle in the tournament so far.
