Germany are very much in danger of being knocked out of the group phase if they fail to win today against Costa Rica. Even winning against Costa Rica may not be good enough to qualify for the next round if the Japan vs Spain match doesn't go in their favour. Germany of Group E will therefore be the major focus on Day 12 of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. Let's examine the scenarios for Groups E and F. Group E The Al Bayt Stadium will host the game between Germany and Costa Rica, while the Khalifa International Stadium will host the match between Japan and Spain.

Germany may well go home after today’s fixture if they fail to win against Costa Rica and Japan snatch a point against Spain. So, their chances of reaching the Round of 16 phase depend on ifs and buts. Costa Rica have found itself in a good position to qualify for the next round after beating Japan 1-0 in their second match. Beating Germany will secure their place in the Round of 16. Given Germany’s current form, Costa Rica can dare to dream of another upset in the Qatar 2022 event. Japan vs Spain Japan have a great chance to move on to the next round if they manage to draw against Spain. The Japanese side has already proved that they can upset big teams by defeating Germany in their opening fixture. But at the same time, they have made their task a bit harder by losing their second fixture against Costa Rica 1-0. One thing is sure: Japan will go for everything in this encounter against Spain. Spain started their campaign with a thumping 7-0 victory over Costa Rica. They have won the hearts of millions of football fans by displaying some magical performances on the field.

Both games will get underway at 9 p.m. (Bangladesh Standard Time). Croatia vs Belgium Belgium were pre-tournament favorites to win the FIFA World Cup in 2022, but they haven't lived up to expectations. Belgium’s hard-fought 1-0 victory over Canada showed their shortcomings, and the next game they made a blunder by losing 2-0 to Morocco. Now their contest against Croatia is a do-or-die one. If Belgium loses this match, they will be eliminated from the competition after the group stage. Croatia showed their true prowess in their last encounter with Canada. Despite the fact that Croatia is considered an older team, the players' experience ultimately made the difference. They should expect a tough battle from Belgium, so this fixture promises to be an exciting one. Canada vs Morocco Morocco are in a stronger position than Belgium and Croatia to finish at the top of Group F. They have 4 points and expect to beat Canada in their last match of the group phase. Morocco will have 7 points if they overcome Canada, which will be good enough to go to the next round. Canada are already out of the competition after losing their first two matches. Their aim will now be to finish the tournament on a high note by defeating Morocco in their final fixture.

Despite winning over Saudia Arabia by 2-1, Mexico are out of the FIFA World Cup. They got the same points as Polland, but they fell behind on the goals scored, and thus just a win was not enough for them to avoid the heartbreaking World Cup exit.

Portuguese sensation Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly agreed to sign a mega deal with Saudi Arabian-based club Al Nassr, reports popular Spanish daily Marca. Ronaldo will reportedly earn 200 million euros per season, which includes his salary and advertising agreements. It was earlier confirmed that the Portuguese international is committed to leaving Europe to take on a new challenge. Read More: Special record that Messi can break if he plays in FIFA World Cup 2022 final Al Nassr's mega offer could not be matched by any European club, as well as by David Beckham's Inter Miami or any other MLS team. Al Nassr offered Cristiano last summer, but the deal didn't go through due to an administrative sanction. But this time, a deal between the two parties seems very close, as there are no legal obstacles this time. Ronaldo also gives his green signal to his agent to finalize all the paperwork. Mrsool Park, Al-Nassr's home stadium, has a capacity of 25,000 people. Their domestic rival is Al Hilal, the current league champions. Rudi Garcia is the current head coach of Al Nassr, and former Arsenal and Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina is also playing for the club. The inclusion of Cristiano Ronaldo will hugely boost Al Nassr's popularity on a global scale, and the Saudi League will surely get special attention as well. The economic benefit for both the club and the league can't be denied either. Ronaldo's first choice was always playing in the Champions League for a big European team in order to compete at the highest level. His agent, Jorge Mendes, was trying to find a suitable club for him last summer, but considering his age, no big club showed interest in him. The five-time Ballon d'Or winner had to continue with Manchester United this season despite disinterest from both parties. However, United's newly appointed head coach, Erik ten Haag, was reluctant to include Ronaldo in his starting XI, which made him furious. Read More: Australia upset Denmark to march to World Cup last 16 Both parties' relationship eventually frayed when Ronaldo gave an exclusive interview to Piers Morgan Uncensored two weeks before the Qatar World Cup 2022. Cristiano's criticism towards Manchester United's owners, coach, club's current infrastructure, and ex-colleagues has triggered huge controversy. Ronaldo and Manchester United were about to get separated after this, and last week, the contract was amicably terminated. He is now set to sign a lucrative contract with Saudi Arabia's Al Nassr.
Brazilian football great Pelé was hospitalized in Sao Paulo to regulate the medication in his fight against a colon tumour, his daughter said on Wednesday. Kely Nascimento added that there was “no emergency” concerning her 82-year-old father’s health. Nascimento, who lives in the United States, made the comments in an Instagram post after what she called “lots of alarm in the media today concerning my dad’s health.” ESPN Brasil reported earlier that the three-time World Cup champion was taken to Hospital Albert Einstein due to “general swelling.” “Really and truly, we appreciate the concern and love,” Nascimento said. Spokespeople for Pelé and Hospital Albert Einstein did not reply to a request for comment from The Associated Press. Pelé removed a tumour in September of 2021, with the hospital saying then that he would begin chemotherapy. Edson Arantes do Nascimento, globally known as Pelé, has used his social media channels since then to deny he was in poor health. His latest public comment was in an Instagram post on Oct. 23, his birthday. “I just want to express my gratitude. Life is good. Turning 82 with my family, in good health, is the best gift. Thank you for everything I have received,” he said in a video. Pelé helped Brazil win the 1958, 1962 and 1970 World Cups and remains the country’s all-time leading scorer with 77 goals in 92 matches for the national team.
