The FIFA World Cup is held once every four years, and Qatar will serve as the host for the 2022 tournament.

On July 27, 2022, Croatia defeated Canada 4-1, and as a result, Canada has been eliminated from the FIFA World Cup. Despite the team’s defeat, Alphonso Davies became the first Canadian player to score in a FIFA World Cup.

As indicated by its comeback from an early 1-0 lead, Croatia, which is now ranked 12th in the world and placed second to France in Russia four years ago, is known for having a significant number of elite players from large teams. For instance, eight of the players on Croatia’s team have experience competing in the World Cup, including star midfielder Luka Modric, who is competing in his third tournament.

To sum up the game, Andrej Kramaric scored three goals, while Marko Livaja scored one. Both Kramaric and Livaja’s contributions were major factors in the Croatian team’s victory. With 94 minutes remaining in the match, Lovro Majer sadly scored.

The Canadians will leave the FIFA World Cup after their final game of the tournament against Morocco on December 1st, 2022. It will be Canada’s first World Cup game ever against a non-European opponent, and they hope to win. Unfortunately, they were defeated 2-1 by Morocco, leaving Canada with no victories during their time in Qatar.

It’s important to remember that Hutchinson participated in his 100th game for Canada. The 39-year-old native of Brampton, Ontario, is the second-oldest outfield participant in the history of the World Cup finals, trailing only Roger Milla of Cameroon. Additionally, he is the game’s oldest outfielder at the moment. In January 2003, the seasoned midfielder played for Canada in his debut match abroad.
