World Cup Update - After 12/1 Matches
Four more teams confirmed their spots into the knockout stage today, bringing the total so far to 12, with the final 4 to be confirmed tomorrow. Today's qualifiers are Morocco, Croatia, Japan, and Spain.
Group F was back and forth until the final whistle in both games, with all 4 teams at some point in the 90' sitting in advancement spots, and elimination spots. As it finished, Japan were able to hold onto a frenzied 2-1 victory over Spain to win the group. Spain holds on to finish 2nd in the group as Germany clobbered Costa Rica 4-2, but ended up 5 goals short of how many they'd need to surpass Spain in GD. One group predicted to be wild out of the gate delivered in a big way, with the craziest final day, in a tournament with some pretty crazy final days already.
