The group stage of the World Cup officially wrapped up and the knockout stage participants are starting to pack their bags home as the competition continues to dwindle down. For the first time since 1994, no team managed to score all nine possible points. To the surprise of everyone, heavyweights France, Brazil, Argentina, Spain and Germany all lost one game in the group stage. Germany have already packed their bags back home.

The tournament in Qatar concludes on Sunday, Dec. 18. Click here for the full daily match schedule and make sure to print out your wall chart. For the first time in the history of the event, the games are taking place during the winter months, interrupting the club soccer season schedule. It is the last time we will see this format with 32 teams in the field before it expands to 48 in time for 2026 when the United States, Mexico and Canada host.

As far as the contenders go, when the tournament began, no team has shorter odds (courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook) to win it all than Brazil at +360 as Tite searches for the sixth star above the Seleção crest. Not far behind Brazil in the futures are Argentina (+500), France (+700), Spain (+750) and England (+850).
