World Cup 2022 Day 18: All the major action and talking points

Callum Boyle

Day 18

The day we’ve all been dreading is right here… No World Cup action. What are we meant to do?

Just because there are no games today, doesn’t mean that there isn’t any drama. Yesterday saw the shock of the round as Morocco beat Spain on penalties.

Cristiano Ronaldo started on the bench but that didn’t stop Portugal from cruising to a 6-1 victory against Switzerland, the highlight of course being Gonçalo Ramos’ hat trick on his first start for the national team.

Now that the round of 16 ties are over and done with we have the quarter finals to look ahead to. One of the most mouthwatering ties is Saturday’s game against England and France and we are both extremely nervous and excited for it.
