World Cup Group F table, standings 2022: Updated results and fixtures for Canada, Belgium, Morocco and Croatia

Sports

European powers Belgium finds themselves at the top of Group F after the opening matchday, but things may not turn out exactly as expected by the time the final matches in the group are played.

Everyone expects Belgium and 2018 World Cup finalist Croatia to qualify from Group F as the top two teams, but Canada and Morocco showed they have what it takes to compete for a berth in the Round of 16.

Canada played Belgium off the park, only to lose 1-0 on a Michy Batshuayi goal. The Canadians had a chance to take the lead, but Belgian star goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois stopped an early Alphonso Davies penalty kick.

Morocco also held Croatia to a 0-0 draw and with a little luck could have even come away with all three points. What is clear is that Moroccan fans will be making their presence felt for as far as the African side progresses as they pushed their team to a result in the opening matchday.
