Quarterfinals World Cup 2022: Teams Qualified, Bracket, Match Schedule, Fixtures and How it Works?

teams qualified for quarterfinals

As the FIFA World Cup nears its completion, the last eight teams standing after the round of 16 are announced.

The nations who advance to the quarterfinals will all believe they have a real chance of reaching the final on Sunday, December 18th, at the Lusail Stadium. At that point, all eight teams will be three victories away from winning the World Cup.

The quarterfinals might generate numerous fascinating perspective games, like France vs. England, Portugal versus Spain, and Senegal versus France. The match between the Netherlands and Argentina is already scheduled.

The final quarterfinal standings will be determined on Tuesday, December 6th, when the last round of 16 matches is played.

World Cup Quarterfinals Match Schedule

The eight rounds of 16 teams will compete in the quarterfinals on Friday, December 9th, and Saturday, December 10th.

Between the round of 16 and the quarterfinals, teams will have a six-day break. The winners of the quarterfinals will then have only four days until their semifinal matchups.

The qualified teams for Quarterfinals are not yet finalized; what fans know for sure is England will be facing France, and the Netherlands will be going against Argentina in the FIFA World Cup 2022 quarterfinals.

England vs. France

Following round-of-16 triumphs against Senegal and Poland, cross-Channel rivals England and France will finally meet in the World Cup knockout phase.

They’ve met twice in the competition, with England winning both times, but both were group-stage games without the threat of elimination from the World Cup.

Gareth Southgate’s team will need to improve their performance after causing some issues for Africa Cup of Nations champions Senegal in a first half that concluded with a quickfire England double.

Netherlands vs. Argentina

Argentina and the Netherlands face off in the 2022 World Cup quarterfinals on Friday, December 9th, at 2:00 p.m. ET. Argentina beat Australia 2-1 in the round of 16, while the Netherlands defeated the United States 3-1.

Argentina defeated Australia by 2-1 in its most recent match on December 3rd. Australia was outshot in the game four to fourteen. Argentina was led by Julian Alvarez and Lionel Messi, who scored two goals for their country against Australia.

Despite registering two fewer shots than the US, the Netherlands defeated the US 3-1 in its most recent match on December 3rd. Daley Blind, Memphis Depay, and Denzel Dumfries led the Netherlands with one goal each.

How do The Quarterfinals work?

They consist of four single-elimination matches, with the winner determined immediately. After 90 minutes of play, if a team is still tied, 30 minutes of overtime is played.

After 30 minutes of additional time, if the score is still tied, a penalty kick shootout will decide the game.

Penalty-Kick Shootout

The penalty shootout works as follows: each team has five chances to score a penalty kick against the other goalkeeper, with each team determining which player gets to shoot and in what order. After five rounds, the team with the most successful penalty conversions is declared the winner and advances. However, the match will be officially recorded as a draw on each side’s record.

If teams are tied on penalties after the fifth round, both teams get one more round of attempts until the deadlock is broken.

Once all 11 players on the field, including the goalie, have attempted a shot after extra time, a player cannot be nominated to take another penalty attempt in the same shootout.

FIFA World Cup Quarter Final History

The 56 available quarterfinal berths in the seven men’s World Cup tournaments staged since 1994 have been filled by the 26 nations mentioned below.

Since 1994, 16 European nations, five South American countries, two North American and African countries, and one Asian country have joined the elite eight.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Quarter Finals Bracket

  • Netherlands (def. USA)

  • France (def. Poland)
  • Spain
  • Portugal
