Who will play in the FIFA world cup final in 2022?

It has been a challenging tournament to predict three weeks in. Whether it is Saudi Arabia’s surprise win over Argentina in their opener or 2014 champions Germany crashing out again, this edition has provided thrilling comebacks and climaxes.

Are upsets going to remain the norm? As the World Cup enters its final laps, here’s what you can expect from the remaining fixtures. Let’s begin with the quarter-finals.

Argentina vs. Netherland 

The Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez saved twice in the penalty shootout to deny Steven Berghuis and Virgil van Dijk. Lautaro Martinez scored the decisive winning penalty after Enzo Fernandez missed Argentina’s attempt. An almost last kick of the ball led the Netherlands to stun Argentina with a late fightback after falling two goals behind.

In each half, Nahuel Molina – who scored his first goal for Argentina – and a Lionel Messi penalty gave Argentina a comfortable lead. Wout Weghorst pulled back one goal for the Netherlands before leveling the score in the game’s dying seconds. Instead of shooting, Berghuis tapped a low pass into a crowded penalty box, allowing Weghorst to roll into the goal.

Tuesday’s semi-final will feature Argentina versus Croatia.

Brazil vs. Croatia

Both Brazil and Croatia fans shed tears as Croatia ascended to the semi-finals at the expense of Brazil.  

Croatia was going home in extra time due to Neymar’s extra-time strike, which surpassed Pele’s record of 77 international goals. 

The game ended in a penalty shootout after Bruno Petkovic scored a last-gasp leveler. After Rodrygo missed a penalty and Marquinhos hit the post, Croatia won 4-2 on penalties.

Now, they will play the winner of the other quarter-final, Argentina.

Let’s move to our main concern: Which teams will most likely appear at the 2022 FIFA World Cup final?
