Wed 23 Nov – Mateo Kovacic and Hakim Ziyech face each other in Croatia vs Morocco
In the end, the points were shared between Kovacic’s Croatia and Ziyech’s Morocco in a goalless draw. On the pitch, though, they did not play like teammates. Kovacic was subbed off late in the match while Ziyech played the full 90 minutes.
Wed 23 Nov – Cesar Azpilicueta plays 90 minutes for Spain
Spain won impressively 7-0 against Costa Rica. Azpilicueta was the captain and full-back and he put in an inspired performance, helping his side to their landmark opener. 90 minutes for the Chelsea man in Qatar.
Wed 23 Nov – Kai Havertz blanks for Germany
He scored a goal which was rightly ruled out for offside. It was not a great display for Havertz as Germany lost to Japan, and his second half substitution was justified.
Mon 21 Nov – Christian Pulisic assists for USA
USA played Wales in a 1-1 draw. It was a well worked goal from USA and it came courtesy of a Christian Pulisic assist. Overall, a good display from the Chelsea rotational forward.
Mon 21 Nov – Edouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly play 90 minutes for Senegal
Senegal played Netherlands in their opening match of the competition. It was not a good game for Chelsea keeper Mendy and defender Koulibaly as they conceded two goals.
Mon 21 Nov – Sterling scores, Mount starts and Gallagher unused for England
Raheem Sterling kicked off his account for this tournament against Iran courtesy of a good finish in the first half. Mason Mount started the game but was subbed off in the 70th minute as he struggled to impact the game. Conor Gallagher was an unused sub.
