World Cup 2022 Guessing Game

Daily updates on World Cup 2022 matches and stats on the Guessing Game!

World Cup 2022 - December 18, 2022

The last day of the World Cup 2022 was full of excitement with French and Argentinian teams competing for the ultimate title. The final game of the FIFA’s tournament of men’s football national teams took place at Lusail Stadium in front of 88,966 audience members. It was a match to remember that’s for sure! 

Argentina VS France: 2 (3 /ext./ - 4 /pen./) - 2 (3 /ext./ - 2 /pen./)

Based on the first half and Argentina scoring 2 goals (Messi and Di Maria) in the first 45 minutes while France had problems finding its footing, it seemed like the South American team was going to land an easy win and go home with a trophy. However, the second half brough more excitement, more action from Les Bleus, and more goals. 

Mbappe scored once from the penalty spot and then again, less than 2 minutes after the successful penalty shot, he netted another one. The extended time was necessary and both Messi and Mbappe were successful in scoring 1 goal each again. So, after a draw in the extended time, the new World Champion was going to be decided by the penalties’ shootout. 

Argentina showed its dominance by finding the back of the net each time they kicked the ball while France missed the 2nd and the 3rd penalty. After the 4th successful penalty, Argentina became the World Cup champion and Lionel Messi has added the only missing football title to his long list of awards. He was also proclaimed the best player of the tournament while Mbappe got The Golden Boot as the leading goal scorer of the World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

World Cup 2022 - December 17, 2022

Croatia claims 3rd place in the World Cup 2022 in Qatar! One day before the grand finals, Croatia met with Morocco in the game for 3rd place in the football championship. Croats played a very convincing match against Moroccans who are the first African nation to rank this high in the World Cup tournament. 

Croatia VS Morocco: 2 - 1 

Morocco was certainly one of the biggest surprises of the World Cup 2022 - a complete  underdog who was supposed to exit the tournament in its early stages but managed to end in 4th position in the World Cup rankings. Although they were really hoping and wholeheartedly fighting for a 3rd place, Croats were better and deservedly ended among the top 3.

In the World Cup 4 years ago, Croatia was a runner-up and with their performance this year, they have once again proven that they are a force in the football field. Both teams started the match with strong determination and both scored a goal each in the first 10 minutes of the game. However, it was Orsic who brought the winning score to Croats and ensured the team’s placement in the top 3. 

World Cup 2022 Guessing Game - Day 22 

One day left before the winners of the World Cup 2022 Guessing Game are determined based on the points collected throughout the championship. 520 players placed their guesses on the match between Croatia and Morocco and 150 were right in their predictions.

World Cup 2022 - December 14, 2022

The second World Cup 2022 semi-final match took place and the finalists of this most popular football championship are now decided. France defeated Morocco and qualified for the finals that are taking place on Sunday December 18, 2022. The European team is meeting Argentina and the fans are already expecting a true football spectacle. 

France VS Morocco: 2 - 0 

By defeating Morocco, France secured its second consecutive World Cup final. Les Blue have won the last football championship and now have the opportunity to do it again and show the world that France is a serious football powerhouse. 

It was Theo Hernandez's goal that gave France a lead early on but Randal Kolo Muani’s goal was the one to secure the win. With this win at the Al Bayt Stadium, France became the first defending champions to qualify for consecutive World Cup finals since Brazil did it in 1998. 

Morocco is definitely the biggest success story of the World Cup 2022! Although they failed to qualify for the finals, they gained a huge respect from the football fans all over the globe. From a complete underdog to a semi-finalist, Morocco is the first Arab country that was able to come this far in the World Cup competition ever. The African team will be meeting Croatia on Saturday in a match for 3rd place. 

World Cup 2022 Guessing Game - Day 21 

For the second game of semi-finals, 956 people joined the Guessing Game and submitted their predictions. Out of all of them, 329 made a correct prediction and got points added to their score on the leaderboard. With only 2 World Cup 2022 games left, things are seriously heating up!

World Cup 2022 - December 13, 2022

The first finalist of the World Cup 2022 in Qatar is determined! In the semi-final match between Argentina and Croatia, the South American country won and became the first team to qualify for the finals that are taking place on Sunday December 18, 2022.

Argentina VS Croatia: 3 - 0 

At the Lusail Stadium, Lionel Messi successfully led the Argentinian national football team to the finals! He was also the one to score the first goal of the match from the penalty spot after Croatian goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic’s foul on Alvarez. The second goal was scored just 5 minutes later by Alvarez which provided Argentinians with a comfortable lead against the opponent. After the break, it was again the amazing Messi - Alvarez duo that managed to break the Croatian defense and score for the 3rd time.

Croatia lost a chance to play in the World Cup finals for the 2nd successive time but they were simply not a match for the Argentinians. Still, hats off to Croats who managed to rank once again among top 4 in the World Cup and show the fans they are still a football powerhouse. Luka Modric, team’s captain and experienced midfielder, will probably not have a chance to play at another World Cup since he is 37 years of age so even though it’s not an ideal send-off, it is definitely an honorable one. The next step for Croats is a match for the 3rd place in the tournament against the losing team from the match between France and Morocco.

Morocco VS Portugal: 1 - 0 

At the Al-Thumama Stadium, Morocco defeated Portugal and became the first African nation to reach the World Cup 2022 semi-finals. Cristiano Ronaldo was visibly distraught after the match ended but Morocco’s win was definitely deserved as the national football team of this African nation has shown incredible dedication and left their heart on the pitch. 

England VS France: 1 - 2

France exited the quarter-final match against England as a winner. The game was exciting and nerve-wracking but both teams fought till the very end for the chance to qualify for the semi-finals.

Morocco VS Spain: 0 (3) - 0 (0)  

On the last day of the Round of 16 phase of the World Cup 2022 championship, the first to meet were the national teams of Morocco and Spain. Before the game started, the odds in online casinos were largely on the side of the European team but Morocco will soon show what has been shown several times in the first 2 weeks of the tournament - underdogs can beat the favorites. 

Morocco was able to match Spain in their game and keep the result at a draw for the entire game so the winner had to be decided by the penalties. And that’s the moment when the Moroccan goalkeeper took  the center stage and blew away the entire football world. Yassine Bounou was able to save the first 3 penalties shots by Spain and advance his team to the quarter-finals of the World Cup 2022 in Qatar.  

Portugal VS Switzerland: 6 - 1 

No surprises here, even though some predicted there might be. Portugal entered the match as a favorite and was successful in dominating the entire match, netting 6 goals in total against Switzerland. Manuel Akanji scored 1 goal for Switzerland but the national team from central Europe was not able to match the power and skills of Portuguese players. After this match, Portugal is going to meet Morocco in the quarter-finals. 

World Cup 2022 Guessing Game - day 17 

On the last day of the knockout phase of the championship, exactly 1.687 people submitted their guesses in the World Cup 2022 Guessing Game. Morocco's triumph was really unexpected which is clearly seen in the Guessing Game stats with only 54 people correctly predicting the results of both matches. 998 people did submit a correct guess for 1 game. The turn of events has certainly affected the positions on the leaderboard and the number of balls (points) people collected from these matches. 

World Cup 2022 - December 5, 2022

The Round of 16 part of the World Cup competition continues in Qatar with teams qualifying for the quarter-final matches. There were no major upsets and the games went pretty much as expected and the winners were not surprising at all.    

Japan VS Croatia: 1 (1) - 1 (3)

The next to qualify for quarter-finals of the World Cup 2022 Qatar is Croatia. Still, the game was not easy and Japan held their own throughout all 90 minutes. The game ended in a draw so the penalties followed and that’s where the Croatian team dominated. The player of the match is Croatian goalkeeper Livakovic who managed to save 3 penalty kicks and secure his team a spot in the final 8. 

Brazil VS South Korea: 4 - 1

90 minutes were more than enough for Brazil to secure a win against South Korea and move forward to the next World Cup 2022 competition stage. Brazil dominated the whole game and Vinicius Jr, Neymar Jr, Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta all scored a goal each in this Round of 16 match. The South Korean team did manage to net one goal in the second half but it was not enough to stop the powerful Brazil.   

World Cup 2022 Guessing Game - Day 16 

Things are really heating up in the World Cup 2022 with Round of 16 matches and the Guessing Game players are collecting more and more balls (points) with each new game. The day 16 brought 2 interesting matches and 1,810 people made their guesses. 1,100 made correct predictions for 1 match while 185 guessed the correct results for both games. 

To be clear, the end results in the Guessing Game are the results after 90 minutes (+injury time) of the game and not the penalties. So, while Croatia is a winner of the match and goes to the next stage, it happened only after penalties shots so the end result in the Guessing Game for this match is a draw. 

World Cup 2022 - December 4, 2022

The knockout stage continues on to the World Cup 2022 in Qatar. There were no surprises as both England and France managed to score a win and move to the next stage of the championship.

Robert Lewandowski managed to score 1 goal from the penalty point and ensure Poland doesn’t go home goalless.

The USA’s Haji Wright scored a goal in the 76 minute but the Americans were unable to match the Dutch on the football pitch so their Qatar football experience ends here.

Argentina came into this match as a favorite and they didn’t disappoint. Lionel Messi scored the first goal of the match in the 35th minute. The second half was more exciting with both teams scoring once (Julian Alvarez for Argentina and Enzo Fernandez for Australia) and more than a few chances for both teams.

South Korea was the first national team to win all of the group matches in the group phase since 1994. Their last match in this part of the championship was against Portugal and they landed a victory which led them to the top of group H and right to the Round of 16. This is the 3rd time since 1948 that South Korea was successful in qualifying to the knockout stage. 

Ghana VS Uruguay: 0 - 2 

Uruguay met with Ghana at Al Janoub Stadium and scored a victory. However, this was not enough for them to move to the next stage of the World Cup 2022. Both Uruguay and South Korea had the same number of points at the end of the group round but the South Korean national team is the one to move forward based on the goals scored. Ghana leaves home as the last-ranked in the group H.  

Serbia VS Switzerland: 2 - 3 

It was a rollercoaster match with many chances for both teams! In the first half both Serbia and Switzerland scored 2 goals each but just minutes into the second half of the match, Remo Freuler managed to bring the lead to Switzerland. The result stayed the same for the remainder of the match as Switzerland was successful in defending their goal and didn’t allow Serbia to take another chance. This win propelled Switzerland to the knockout stage where they now have to meet with Portugal.  

Cameroon VS Brazil: 1 - 0

Cameroon met Brazil at Qatar's Lusail Stadium and managed to win! Although this does nothing for Cameroon in terms of qualifying to the knockout stage, winning against one of the football superpowers certainly is a great exit from the World Cup 2022!

Croatia VS Belgium: 0 - 0

At the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Ar-Rayyan, Croatia met with Belgium. The end result was a draw which left Belgium out of the knockout stage for the first time since the 1998 World Cup. Lukaku had more than a few chances to find the back of the net and led Belgium to victory but was unsuccessful in all of his attempts. Croatia ended the group stage as the second placed and is moving to the next phase.    

Canada VS Morocco: 1 - 2

One of the biggest surprises in the World Cup 2022 is certainly Morocco's amazing gameplay. In the last game in the group stage, the African team met with Canada at Al-Thumama Stadium and managed to score 2 goals and take a win. Morocco finished this phase of the championship at the top of the Group F and qualified for the knockout stage for the first time since 1987 and the second time in men’s national teams history.    

Japan VS Spain: 2 - 1 

This was the first loss for the Spanish national team in the World Cup 2022 competition so far. Although the last goal for Japan is controversial due to the VAR ruling, it still stands that the Japanese team has managed to win against Germany and Spain in group stage and move to the Round of 16. Spain is also moving forward to the knockout phase.       

Costa Rica VS Germany: 2 - 4 

world cup 2022 groups

In the last match of Group E, Germany won against Costa Rica but it was not enough for the four-time champions to qualify for the next World Cup stage. Germany’s early exit is one of the many surprises as most football fans expected them to qualify for the knockout stage at least. However, they ranked 3rd at the end while Costa Rica finished last in the group with 3 points.

World Cup 2022 - November 30, 2022

The group stage of the World Cup 2022 is slowly coming to an end. Wednesday matches did produce a couple of surprises which is sort of on brand with this Word Cup championship. Tunisia winning against powerful France was an upset but didn’t affect who moves forward. Australia’s win against Denmark catapulted the teams from the Land Down Under to the next phase for the first time since 2006. 

Tunisia VS France: 1 - 0

Although Tunisia was successful in defeating the reigning world football champion, it was not enough for them to move forward in the competition. Wahbi Khazri made history by not only scoring in the match against France but by also becoming the first African player to score in 3 consecutive matches. Still, France ended as the leader of the group with 7 points while Tunisia had to say goodbye to the World Cup 2022. 

Australia VS Denmark: 1 - 0 

Thanks to the goal of Mathew Leckie in the second half of the game and win against Denmark, Australia was successful in qualifying for the Round of 16. Denmark had several good opportunities in the first half but missed them all and this loss means they are leaving Qatar much sooner than expected. This is the second time in history that Australia managed to enter the knockout stage.  

Poland VS Argentina: 0 - 2 

Winning over Poland, Argentina secured that they enter the Round of 16 stage as a top-ranked team in Group C. In the first half of the match, Wojciech Szczezny managed to save the penalty performed by Lionel Messi but Alexis McAllister and Julian Alvarez broke Polish defense and scored a goal each in the second half. This win positioned Argentina at the top of the group ratings and pushed them directly to the knockout stage.       

Saudi Arabia VS Mexico: 1 - 2

Despite winning against Saudi Arabia in the final match of Group C, Mexico is done with the World Cup 2022. Based on the goal difference, Mexico wasn’t able to overcome Poland and ended 3rd in the group rankings. Luis Chavez and Henry Martin scored a goal each but that wasn’t enough for Mexico to advance to the next stage. 

World Cup 2022 Guessing Game - Day 11

The African champions have neutered the knockout stage for the first time in 20 years! 

Netherlands VS Qatar: 2 - 0 

This was the last game of the championship for the host country of Qatar. Throughout the whole group stage Qatar was not able to win a single point so his elimination was pretty obvious even after the last match.

Iran VS USA: 0 - 1 

world cup 2022 group b

Both teams now have 3 points before the final match. 

Belgium VS Morocco: 0 - 2 

The most surprising result of the day goes to Morocco who managed to upset Belgium with a 2 - 0 win at Al-Thumama Stadium.

This left Canada without the points in the group while Croatia is on the top. 

Spain VS Germany: 1 - 1

Before this match, Tunisia played a goalless draw in their opening game against Denmark while Australia lost to France. 

Poland VS Saudi Arabia: 2 - 0 

Although their win against Argentina has been the biggest surprise of the World Cup so far, Saudi Arabia was not able to repeat the same success in their match against Poland. Piotr Zielinski scored for Poland in the first half while team’s captain Robert Lewandowski secured that win with a goal in the late second half. 

France VS Denmark: 2 - 1

France became the first team to qualify for the Round of 16 of the World Cup 2022 in Qatar. The hero of the match was a young striker Kylian Mbappe who scored two goals against Denmark.

Although Wales was a favorite in the match against Iran, they ended up losing a game. The first half was rather boring with none of the teams making any big moves but things will start changing in the second half! The Wales’ goalkeeper earned a red cart by making a penalty outside the penalty box which game Iranian team an advantage at the very end of the second half. Iran was able to take advantage of this and score 2 goals in the injury time, securing its position in Group B. 

Qatar VS Senegal: 1 - 3

The World Cup 2022 host Qatar got eliminated! Senegal managed to dominate Qatar and secure points in Group A which means there is still hope for them to qualify for the Round of 16. 

Netherlands VS Ecuador: 1 - 1 

The second Group A match of the day between Netherlands and Ecuador was held at the Khalifa International Stadium. The Dutch took the lead in the first half when the young striker Gakpo scored but Ecuador was far from giving up.

The last match of the day was between England and USA which ended in a draw. England didn’t seem like the same team that played against Iran a few days ago and it showed at the end result. The USA was energized and played with the intensity England was not able to break.

Although Andre Ayew managed to score for Ghana, it wasn’t long before Joao Felix and Rafael Leao both scored one goal each. Ghana didn’t give up and managed to score again thanks to Osman Bukari but wasn’t successful in equalizing the result by the end of the match. This win pushed Portugal to the top of Group H.

Brazil VS Serbia: 2 - 0

World Cup 2022 - November 23, 2022 

The 4th day of the World Cup 2022 went without a hitch and the match results were pretty much as expected. However, that doesn’t mean there are not some surprises along the way. Japan’s win over Germany came out of nowhere and surprised many of the football fans. This match showed that underdogs should not be underestimated! 

Morocco VS Croatia: 0 - 0

Group F’s Morocco and Croatia were the first match of the day. The entire match at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor was pretty much a back-and-forth battle between these national teams. Although a big name on the European and global football stage, Croatia was not able to establish dominance over Morocco. There were a few chances for both teams during the game but neither was able to hit the back of the net.

Germany VS Japan: 1 - 2 

After Argentina’s loss to Saudi Arabia, this game was the biggest upset in the World Cup championship so far. The first half of the match largely belonged to the German team but as the time passed in the second half, Japan kept pushing through with more and more force.

Japan all of a sudden became a serious threat to Manuel Neuer's goal and, in 15 minutes before the end of the match, Ritsu Doan scored a goal. Although this goal was shocking in itself, the second goal by Takuma Asano, just 8 minutes after the first one, was historic. Japan managed to defeat the four-time world champions and in many ways thanks to the goalkeeper Gonda with his superb saves. 

Spain VS Costa Rica: 7 - 0 

Although the win of Spain against Costa Rica comes as no surprise, it’s important to note just how impressive were Spanish players on the field. Some might even say that Luis Enrique's men displayed a flawless performance that most teams in the World Cup 2022 wouldn’t be able to match. Spain scored 3 goals in the first half and then 4 in the second but it was their energy and movement which made Costa Rica abandon their initial game plan minutes after the match had started.       

Belgium VS Canada: 1 - 0 

In the first World Cup appearance after 36 years, Canada met with Belgium. The game was played at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium and even though Canada has shown that their present national team has a lot to offer, it was not enough to secure the win. The Canadians missed the golden opportunity to take the lead when Alphonso Davies missed the penalty. The only goal of the match was by Batshuayi who managed to secure points for the Red Devils.

World Cup fever descended on the world last Sunday and ever since the fans of this great sport have been religiously following the matches happening in Qatar. On the 3rd day of this global spectacle, the biggest surprise was Argentina’s loss to Saudi Arabia! 

Argentina VS Saudi Arabia: 1 - 2 

The odds were pretty clear on this one but in an amazing turn of events on the field, the national team of Saudi Arabia managed to turn odds in their favor. Argentina is one of the football giants and came into this match as a clear favorite but Saudi Arabian players showed to the world that nothing is written in stone. With so many dramatic moments, this game was a pure pleasure to watch!

Argentinians managed to score a goal in the first half but all the skills and experience of Lionale Messi and the rest of the teams was not enough to stop Saudi Arabians in the second half. Al-Shehri and Al-Dawsari scored 2 goals but the biggest hero of the match was Mohammed Al Owais, the goalkeeper, who made 5 saves against the powerful Argentina offence. 

Denmark VS Tunisia: 0 - 0 

Although there were plenty of chances during the second match of the day between Denmark and Tunisia, the end result was a draw. 18 months after suffering from cardiac arrest at Euro 2020, Christian Eriksen made his return but had no luck in starting the World Cup 2022 in grand style. 

The Tunisian goalkeeper Aymen Dahmen was successful in stopping any ball coming his way from Eriksen or any other Dutch player. The dramatic VAR moment happened in injury time but the referee Cesar Ramos decided that penalty was not warranted, ending the last hope for the national team of Denmark to finish their first game in victory.     

Mexico VS Poland: 0 - 0

The game between Mexico and Poland was pretty evenly played! The first half of the match was dominated by Mexico but the things evened out in the second half which led to a draw. Robert Lewandowski had a chance to bring victory to his team from the penalty spot but he was unsuccessful against Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.     

France VS Australia: 4 - 1 

Although the start of the game saw Australia take a lead with a goal by Goodwin in the 9th minute, it didn’t take long for the French team to pull itself together and show its power. France showcased its dominance against Australia, taking the leading position in Group D. The French team scored 4 goals in total - Olivier Giroud managed to hit the back of the Australian net twice while Adrien Rabiot and Kylian Mbappé both scored once.
