World Cup 2022 Day 13: All the major action and talking points.
Cristiano Ronaldo will lead Portugal back into action against South Korea at 3 pm, while at the same time Uruguay will play Ghana in a crunch match that has some bitter history behind it.
In 2010, Luis Suarez famously used his hand to stop Ghana from progressing to the semi-finals. Asamoah Gyan then missed the subsequent penalty kick, and Uruguay advanced in the shoot-out.
Suarez has never been the most popular footballer ever, but he is universally hated in Ghana, and to make things worse, he said that he had "nothing to apologise for" in a recent press conference.
Then at 7 pm, Serbia plays Switzerland, and Brazil take on Cameroon. The Brazilians are the only side yet to concede in this tournament, a stat they will want to protect.
What happened yesterday?
The big news was that both Germany and Belgium are out of the World Cup.
Incredibly Japan beat Spain 2-1, which meant that Germany's 4-2 win over Costa Rica didn't count for anything and they were eliminated.
Japan's winning goal however was shrouded in controversy because it looks to every angle that we can see, to have been out of play before it was crossed in.
FIFA have a lot of explaining to do, but so does Belgium who were simply the biggest disappointment of this tournament, especially when it's the supposed 'golden generation.'
