A Turning History in 2018 FIFA World Cup

2018 is said to be an unusual year for the FIFA World Cup where long-standing tournament favourites like Germany, Brazil and Argentina did not get past to the Top 16 finalists or Semi-Final. France has been the remaining one maintaining its stellar performance.

The world gasped as they watched their favourite team go home. Germany first startling defeat to Mexico at 0 – 1 in the same group, had our confidence level of the regular FIFA World Cup winner wavered since then.

Following the fate of Germany, Brazil was also booted out by the formidable Belgian Team in the Quarter-Final with a 2 – 1 which caused another stupefying effect on the world. The animation of a dramatic Neymar rolling on the floor during a World Cup Match went viral on social media, becoming a laughing stock while others mocked him for gaining sympathy or a penalty kick.

Argentina, having the least surprised exit in the Quarter-Final among the three with a match against invincible France which became the eventual World Cup Winner 2018. Both teams met for the third time in 2018 between 1930 and 1978. France was defeated by Argentina for the first two years and attained their glory in World Cup 2018 with a score of 4 – 3.
