World Cup 2018: Here Are the Teams Which Qualified for Round of 16

The biggest footballing event in the world is halfway through and the audience isn’t even one bit disappointed.

This FIFA World Cup 2018 has seen nail-biting crunch matches, last minute winners, and a whole lot of penalties. The fair play rule also came into play as Senegal became the first team in the history of the tournament to crash out of the World Cup based on more yellow cards that they received.

We also had our fair share of surprises as the possible title contenders and heavyweights, Germany, kissed goodbye to their title-defending hopes. Poland’s team was also a disappointment as it finished last in its group winning only one match.

Following teams have cemented their place in the last 16 of the world cup 2018,

  • Uruguay (winners of Group A)
  • Russia (runners-up in Group A)
  • Spain (winners of Group B)
  • Portugal (runners-up in Group B)
  • France (winners of Group C)
  • Denmark (runners-up in Group C)
  • Croatia (winners of Group D)
