We witnessed the first phase of the knockout games in the Round of 16, and there were some surprises along the way. The FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia has been as unpredictable as it could be. Only eight teams remain in the tournament.
The first Quarter-Final will be between France and Uruguay. Both teams have been in good touch and it is expected to be a feisty encounter.
France have won the World Cup only once when they did it in 1998. Since then the country made into another final in 2006. Even though they did lose that game, it seemed difficult that the nation would get close to a dream one more time.
But, with the new crop of players, who have genuinely taken the footballing ability to another level, Les Bleus have a real shot at the title.
Their coach Didier Deschamps has assembled a side that has youth and flamboyance. Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Raphael Varane and Paul Pogba make the spine of the team.
Meanwhile, their opponents in Uruguay have been on the most consistent team in the tournament. They have only conceded one goal in four games and have scored seven. Their strikers Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani have been sensational together.
However, PSG man Cavani is a doubt for the game as he injured his hamstring. Coach Oscar Tabarez would have to either use Christian Stuani or let Suarez be the lone attacker in the game. Both prospects not as enticing as the original pairing he in his mind.
The team needs to rally together and have to believe in themselves. Even if one of their key players is injured, they need to go out and show why they did win the FIFA World Cup twice before. The football heritage never lies.
