Paris Saint Germain’s Lionel Messi is set to get his knockout stages underway as he chases one of the only trophies to so far elude him

After 12 days of non-stop football, the 2022 World Cup group stages are officially over. This has proven to be one of the most entertaining group stages, with not a single one of the 32 teams winning all three of the games so far.

England finished the group stages with the best record, and did in statistically the hardest group too. Gareth Southgate’s men finished on seven points, and a positive goal difference of seven.

Their opponents were also unbeaten, and finished top of what proved to be a tough group. The Netherlands ended the group on seven points, and a goal difference of plus four.
