Outspoken Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios has said that he is super excited to play against world no. 1 Rafael Nadal of Spain in the fourth round of Australian Open.

“I don’t really dislike him. I don’t know him at all. Hell of a tennis player. Don’t know him as a person. I’m sure he’s okay,” he added having earlier called the Spaniard ‘super salty’ and his “polar opposite”.

Nadal had said that Kyrgios ‘lacks respect’ but before there meeting he said, “When he plays good tennis and he shows passion for this game, he is a positive player for our tour.”

While Kyrgios overcame Karen Khachanov of Russia in a five-set battle in the third round while Nadal had an easy straight set win against countryman Pablo Carreno Busta.

Football World Cup: Brazil clash with Croatia in quarterfinal, everything you need to know

As the Quarter Final of the FIFA 2022, World Cup commences today, the first match of the Quarterfinal will be played between tournament favorites Brazil and Croatia. Brazil, who bulldozed over South Korea in the Round of 16 with a 4-1 win, will now be aiming to continue their bout against Luka Modric and Company.

The match will be played at Qatar’s Education City Stadium on December 9.

The Selecao’s have been considered the potential winning team in the FIFA 2022 World Cup and has considerably performed that way as well. The Thiago Silva-led Brazil will be staking claims for the trophy the team has been dominating throughout the campaign. However, many reports have surfaced that have highlighted the gaps in the Brazilian team.

Croatia on the other hand, hasn’t necessarily been the favorite team in the tournament, however, the World Cup being the last for Real Madrid’s midfielder and Ballon D’or winner has still garnered a lot of support from the fans. The Croatian team, in the round of 16, beat the Japanese side in a shocking win. Japan, who were considered to be the better of the 2 sides, failed to translate the in game confidence when the match moved to Penalty stages.

The Brazilian team’s challenge against Croatia will be to contain the Croatian midfield which is the engine of the team. Croatian midfield consisting of star players like Peresic, Modric, Kovacic, and Pasalic can be enough to make a dent in Brazil. The Brazilian team’s other challenge for the match will be avoiding injuries, especially Neymar’s.

Neymar, who was rulled out of 2 games in the group stages after facing an horrific ankle injury against Camroon returned against Soth Korea and found himself on the scoresheet. Neymar’s presence for the Brazilian team is the key to unlock the door for World Cup Trophy. However, due to him already being vulnerable to injury, the challenge for Brazil will be to keep him injury free in order to win the World Cup. Neymar’s absence is a void for the Selcao’s that can’t be filled with any other player, specially for Brazil who lack the appropriate depth on the bench.

Another talent that is taking over the headlines from Argentina is Manchester City product Julian Alvarez, who also scored in the Australia match which led to 2-1 win Against Australia.

However, the challenge now arises as Argentinian’s attack consisting of Lionel Messi, Jullian Alverez and Angel Di Maria will face the likes of strong and big defenders like Virgil van Dijik, De Ligt, Nathan Ake.

The contest between the two teams is anticipated to be a clash of the fittest as Messi, who is playing in the campaign like it is his last dance, is expected to step up to on the big occasion and make history. Despite their elite defence, the Dutch side can fail to find any end product as the Frenkie de Jong-led midfield hasn’t been consistent in rapidly transitioning the defence to attack for the Dutch.

On the attacking end, Barcelona’s Memphis Depay hasn’t been able to get enough playing time in for the club, owing to him being plagued by injuries. The star-striker Depay, who is known for his quick feet, will now go against Lisandro Martinez-led defence, who is known to leave everything out on the field.

The battle between the Netherlands and Argentina will be a riveting as the match will render out the fittest out of the two and find their place in the Semi-Final.
