The 2022 World Cup in Qatar is proving to be a surprising one, or at least day 3 with the match between Argentina vs Saudi Arabia, which saw Leo Messi’s team lose to a fantastic Asian team. The game’s result of 1-2 for the Green Falcons echoed worldwide, so much so that the country declared today a national day, no work for anyone. But with day 3 out of the way, we got a fantastic day 4; Germany, Spain, and Croatia are eager to jump on the field.
How and where to watch and follow the games
World Cup games today (all times ET)’
Group F: Morocco vs Croatia (5 a.m.)
A very interesting game. Croatia has renovated their team from the one that reached the final in Russia. Still, Luka Modric will make his fourth appearance and want to continue building his legacy. But this is not a strong Croatian team. Our prediction is of a very even game.
The African team has some good players; Youssef En-Nesyri of Sevilla is one to watch, plus Achraf Hakimi the biggest team start. The PSG right fullback will want to make a big splash on the biggest stage.

Group E: Germany vs Japan (8 a.m.)
The big question for this game is, what German team will we see? Flick’s guys can score eight goals and be a machine or lose a game against some of the weakest teams in Europe. This team did not make it out of the group stage last time, and for Germany, this is not allowed. They must do better, and they’ll look at golden boy Musiala to make it happen.
Japan, and the rising sun team. Is it all about Cubo? The Asians have always been a very disciplined team, sometimes too much with no ingenuity and no leaving the script. They are fast and very direct, and Germany should be worried about how to stop how the Japanese players will look to exploit the wholes they leave on defense.

Group F: Spain vs Costa Rica (11 a.m.)
Luis Enrique, nuff said, or not? This is Lucho’s team, whether you like him or not. He did not want any big stars. He is the only star of this team. The one that makes all decisions, and the buck stops with him, as President Truman would say. Pedri will be tasked with taking this team to glory, the 19-year-old had a great Euro Cup last time around with the Spanish team, and La Roja will need the best form of the Barcelona player.
For the Ticos, it is all about “Pura Vida,” and they’ll make it really tough for this Spanish team to beat them. Luis Fernando Suarez is no amateur in World Cup games, the Costa Rica coach was here with Ecuador eight years ago, and he knows how to compete.

Group E: Belgium vs Canada Japan (2 p.m.)
Very even match. Belgium is not the same team that reached the semifinals of Russia. The team is four years older and has had little or no renovation at all. Their line of defense with Toby Alderweireld and Vertonghen is an average 34-years-old. They can suffer with the Canadian speed.
For the North American team, they are a very structured team with a lot of speed and lots of physical attributes. Alphonso Davies is one to watch for this match. The left fullback from Bayern is on top form and will be the biggest threat to the European team.
