As day follows night, the first full week of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar comes to a close on Sunday, with one of the biggest names in international football on the verge of a humiliating exit.

Twenty-four hours after Argentina's 2-0 win over Mexico, which got the Albiceleste's quest for a trophy back on track, 

two more international football powerhouses meet at the Al Bayt Stadium today. 

Their first games have been very different, so it will be interesting to see how they do.

Everything is on the line in Al Khor, and Germany coach Hansi Flick can't think about how people back home will react if he doesn't get the win

that would keep Germany from being eliminated in the group stage for the second straight tournament, which would be the first time in the history of the World Cup.

Japan got back into the game earlier in the day. When they play Costa Rica, they hope to keep their momentum going and get one foot in the knockout rounds.

Canada and Croatia are also playing in Group F. After losing to Belgium and drawing with Morocco, respectively, in the first round, both teams have work to do if they want to move on.

The North Africans were determined to stop Luka Modric and his teammates in a 0-0 draw, 

but they will need to be at their best again if they want to get anything out of their other Group F match against Belgium.
