There are just four teams still standing in the 2018 World Cup following a dramatic set of quarter-finals. Tournament favourites Brazil have been knocked out, hosts Russia have had to leave their own party, and even the mercurial Luis Suarez has had to go back to Uruguay with his tail between his legs.
As the 2018 World Cup reaches the Round of 16 stage, the tournament has bid farewell to star-studded reigning champions Germany, along with the likes of Mo Salah and Robert Lewandowski, as Egypt and Poland were among the teams to crash out at the group stages. Attention now turns to the knockout stages, with teams setting the quarter-finals in their sights.
It has been a case of expect the unexpected for some of the favourites of the World Cup so far, with heavyweights Brazil, Spain and Germany all failing to get off to a winning start in Russia. Followers of the Three Lions will have breathed a sigh of relief, however, as captain and star striker Harry Kane headed England to three points against Tunisia.
The Netherlands didn’t make it. Italy - four-time winners - fell in qualifying. Chile and Alexis Sanchez won’t be on the plane to Russia, and the USA failed to qualify for the first time since 1990.
