The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is coming to an end. For more than three weeks, the world's biggest sporting spectacle entertained us all with an incomparable showcase of talent, skill and will.
The World Cup was a story of upsets. There was the improbable victory of lowly Saudi Arabia over the fancied Argentina, as well as Japan's shocking win over the four-time champions Germany.
There was also the Cinderella story of Morocco reaching the semifinals, the first and only African side to do so. The giant-killers waylaid heavy favorites Spain and Portugal before falling to the defending champions France.
As for perennial underachievers England, well, their underachieving ways continue. The Three Lions were beaten by France in the quarterfinals after Harry Kane missed a crucial penalty. Safe to say that football won't be coming home soon.
