Doha: The entire world is eyeing the first semifinal of the FIFA 2022 World Cup between Argentina and Croatia. Both teams would like to win the match and move into the final to win the World Cup and give a remarkable tribute to their respective captains. Messi and Modric, may be playing their final World Cup for their nations.
Uncertainty always looms in sports. Argentina, the South American powerhouse, is the early favourite. The main aspects that hung heavy over the first semi-final between Argentina and Croatia here were emotion and resilience, pride and suffering.
This football World Cup will always be remembered for the upsets. After losing the opening match against Saudi Arabia, the Argentine came back like a wounded tiger and is now sniffing around to lift the coveted trophy for the third time. Croatia, the runners-up in 2018, defeated Brazil in the quarterfinal and is hoping to win the World Cup for the first time.
The playing styles of both sides are quite different. Argentina believes in the attacking nature of football, which is the specialty of a South American team, while its rival believes in playing hard football like other European sides. Croatia’s defence is superb. A team like Brazil had to work hard to score a goal; credit should be given to Neymar for showing his superb skill to score against the Croats. In the penalty shootout, Croatia emerged victorious and sent Brazil home empty-handed from the World Cup.
An amazing match is set to take place in the first semifinal. In Qatar, the entire subcontinent is mostly eager to see Argentina in the final. There are around 700,000 migrant workers from Kerala in Qatar, and they are behind the South American side. People always like to talk about and shower their love for Argentina, Maradona, and Messi.
“It’s football.””The criticism wasn’t fair because we know how to lose and we know how to win,” Scaloni would say. “We lost to Saudi Arabia; we didn’t say anything, and we left quietly. We defeated Brazil in the Copa America final, and there was a beautiful sporting moment between Messi, Neymar, and Paredes in the Maracana tunnel after the match.
Both teams are gearing up to try to give their best ever performance on the biggest stage. The entire nation is behind them. Be ready for a sensational match.
