Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal will look to book a place in the last eight of the FIFA World Cup 2022 as they take on fellow European heavyweights Switzerland. The contest could be the final outing for Ronaldo at the World Cup as he tries to take a giant step towards the world title. The day’s other game will see Spain play against Morocco with a place in the last eight up for grabs. Ahead of the clashes here are details of both the contest.
Morocco vs Spain
The penultimate World Cup 2022 last-16 battle takes place at the Education City Stadium on Tuesday afternoon, as Morocco pit its wits against Spain. La Roja finished second in Group E to set up a tie with their African counterparts, who fended off Croatia and Belgium to finish first in Group F.
With the golden generation of Belgium under-performing and 2018 runners-up Croatia struggling to find a consistent attacking spark, Morocco took full advantage to claim a surprising first-placed finish in Group F with seven points from nine on offer. On the flip side, Spain’s 7-0 win against Costa Rica was one of the reason why they made the Knockouts on goal difference.
