"They have to analyze the tournament, and not only the tournament but the last half-year, 12 months and we will see what happens in the future", said former player Lothar Matthaeus, who captained the then-West Germany to the World Cup title in 1990.

The excitement surrounding the hosts receded a little after 10-man Russian Federation were thumped 3-0 by Uruguay in the final group game.

"It's a historic disgrace", Der Spiegel weekly said, decrying Germany's "weak game" against a plucky South Korea.

Group A: Uruguay leads with 9 points, Russian Federation comes second with 6 points while Saudi Arabia ranks third with 3 points.

France may have won the group, but they did so with extremely underwhelming performances.

Germany crashed out at the group stage after they were beaten 2-0 by South Korea on Wednesday.

All eyes were on Lionel Messi's Argentina as they came close to a shock early exit.

Ronaldo needs just two goals to draw level with Eusebio as his country's all-time leading World Cup goalscorer, and that missed spot-kick against Iran might provide all the motivation he needs to get on the scoresheet against Uruguay.

Iceland started well in their first World Cup - Hannes Halldorsson saved a Messi penalty to earn a point - but couldn't keep the momentum going. Les Bleus did win Group C, yet they managed three goals.

Zidane was back in time for their last group outing, but could not prevent a 2-0 loss at the hands of Denmark that had them heading home after the worst trophy defence in tournament history.

"We really had the feeling that our team wanted to move ahead and qualify for the knockout stages".

Three wins from three matches at the World Cup in Russian Federation has helped Croatia jump 17 places on the latest real-time FIFA rankings.

Key battle: It has been a relatively quiet tournament for Messi, who has only scored once at Russian Federation 2018, but the Barcelona superstar will fancy his chances up against France's raw left-back Lucas Hernandez.

Monday's later match pits Neymar and a Brazil lineup that seems to be finding its form against a mercurial Mexico squad that knocked off Germany and South Korea but got hammered by Sweden.

Just like Group B, there were no shocks here. It was Belgium's first win over England since 1936, and extends The Red Devils unbeaten streak to 22 matches. England now top the group and need only a draw to make it to the next round as group toppers.

In contrast Panama, whom England beat 6-1, had a large number of women and even children cheering them on at the game in Nizhny Novgorod, she said.
