Brazil reach the knockout even after losing to Cameroon

Cameroon surprised Brazil by defeating Brazil 1-0 in the last match of Group G of the FIFA World Cup being played in Qatar. It also became the first African country to beat Brazil in the World Cup. This victory over Cameroon also did not help him to reach the pre-quarterfinals. In another Group G match, Switzerland defeated Serbia 3-2 to enter the pre-quarterfinals.
Brazil's upset by Cameroon did not affect their pre-quarter-final campaign. Brazil had already made it to the last 16. They have 6 points from 3 matches and have qualified for the knockouts by topping the group on goal average. They will face South Korea in the pre-quarterfinals.
At the same time, even after Cameroon's victory, its campaign ended there. Cameroon played three matches in the group stage. During this, he won in M, while he had to face defeat in one match. One match ended in a draw. With 4 points, Cameroon's team finished third in the points table. Switzerland, on the other hand, has won two out of three matches and lost one.
Vincent Aboubakar scored in extra time to give Cameroon a 1-0 lead over Brazil. No player could score a goal from Brazil.
Saudi Arabia made the biggest upset in the FIFA World Cup 2022. Saudi Arabia defeated Argentina 2–1 in the same match. Argentina's 36-match unbeaten streak was finally broken in Qatar.
Tunisia beat France 1-0 in their last Group D match at the Education City Stadium in Doha. Tunisia is at number 30 in the FIFA rankings. Whereas, France is number four in the ranking. However, due to the qualification being confirmed, France did not field its players. All the big stars of the team such as Mbappe, Dembele and Giroud were on the bench. Even the team's captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris did not play in the match.
In the matches played in Group E, Japan defeated Spain 2-1 in a big upset. Due to this victory, Japan was able to secure its place in the knockout stage of the tournament after 20 years.
Belgium is out of the FIFA World Cup. Earlier, Belgium was number three in the 2018 World Cup. At the same time, in the 2014 World Cup, the team went to the quarter-finals. The exit of the team considered to be a contender for the World Cup will be shocking for the fans.
