It's all over for Belgium. They have been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup after failing to beat Croatia at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium. Croatia secured its place in the last 16 of the World Cup. Croatia qualified in second place in Group F behind Morocco, who defeated already eliminated Canada 2-1 in the other match to secure the top spot.
Romelu Lukaku attempted five shots, the joint-highest total for a Belgium player. On the other hand, Zlatko Dalic's men held strong to lengthen their unsubdued run in the World Cup group stage to six games. After failing to reach the knockout stages in three consecutive participants (2002, 2006, 2014), Croatia has progressed from their group at successive editions (2018, 222).
Belgium had three shots on target, while Croatia had 4. Belgium's Leander Dendoncker received a yellow card in the 66th minute of the game. Below is the match breakdown.
