Was Ronaldo fortunate to avoid red card against Iran?

Uruguay have won both their World Cup matches thus far with a scoreline of 1-0 in each

The lucky one goes through.

Russian Federation and Uruguay have both qualified.

Morocco has played well in its two matches, only to lose both 1-0.

Not many people would have expected Iran to have a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages of the competition at this stage, but this is what has turned out to be the case.

"Morocco are an excellent team who had lost two matches 1-0, while deserving much more, and this entire group was very tough for us". He has scored all of their four goals, including a hat-trick in the 3-3 draw against Spain.

They require a point against Morocco in Kaliningrad to secure qualification, and new coach Fernando Hierro promised they would not underestimate a North African side playing for pride.

Spain will play host Russian Federation.

"But we have a backup group pushing for places every day".

A point against France would see Denmark qualify, as would Australia's failure to beat Peru. He later escaped a red card after the referee consulted VAR and showed him a yellow for elbowing an opposition player.

We know our two qualifiers from Group G, but who will finish top?

In the 81st minute, with both teams having chances, Youssef En Nesyri headed home from a corner for the late lead. Iceland are through if it wins and Nigeria loses.

Argentina's fate is out of their hands, but Nigeria's defeat of Iceland on matchday two was a good result for the two-time winners. If Iceland and Argentina both win, to move to four points, they will be split by goal difference. Uruguay need to win to take the group.

The Three Lions have joined the likes of Group G rivals Belgium, hosts Russian Federation and the impressive Croatia in the next round.

Advances with a win or a draw against Iran.

Serbia must beat Brazil to qualify but a draw could see them through if the Swiss are beaten by Costa Rica by more than one goal.

France are through to the knockout round - a point against Denmark would see them finish as group winners.

This was another group that changed dramatically after a stoppage-time goal as Germany, facing potential elimination, pushed themselves right back into the mix by beating Sweden.

Germany will progress if they beat South Korea by two goals.

"Anybody who thinks it's going to be very easy to score and win by a landslide, especially during this first stage is wrong", he said.

Goal difference would then come into play. A half hour later, Portugal went ahead with a lovely goal from Ricardo Quaresma.

Here, now, is a look at the various scenarios that may play out in the final round of Group play.

England and Belgium advance, regardless of what happens; Tunisia and Panama are out, regardless of what happens.

Six teams have already qualified, but 10 spots are still up for grabs. Belgium now have three yellow cards to England's two, meaning this could be a battle of discipline more than anything.

Japan face Poland with Senegal and Colombia coming head to head on Thursday at 16:00.
