Four-time World Champions Germany will face a do-or-die contest against Costa Rica in the final group game on Thursday (December 1) in the FIFA World Cup 2022. With just one point, Germany will have to beat the North American side while also hoping Spain make a favour to them by beating or drawing against Japan. The day’s other big battle will see Belgium play against 2018 World Cup runners-up Croatia in what will be another big battle of the day.

Croatia vs Belgium

Group F favourites Belgium face the prospect of elimination at the first hurdle of the 2022 World Cup when they take on Croatia at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium on Thursday. The Red Devils currently sit in third place, one point behind the Checkered Ones and Morocco in the top two heading into their final group fixture.

After playing out a goalless draw with Morocco in their opening Group F fixture, Croatia responded with an impressive 4-1 victory over Canada on Sunday, boosting their last-16 hopes while eliminating the Maple Leafs in the process.
