We’ve finally arrived at the knockout stages for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and so far, the tournament has lived up to the hype. We’ve seen several high profile nations crash out at the group stage, and on top of that, we’ve seen a parade of last minute goals and unbelievable matches. Now, however, we’re into a straight knockout format as 16 teams battle it out to become world champions. Two of those teams are Spain and Russia, who have certainly provided us with some entertaining games in their respective groups.

The final set of fixtures in the World Cup group stages are almost upon us, and for the most part, we still don’t know which 16 teams will make up the knockout stages. In Group B we’ve seen several stand-out performances across the first four games, and now, three teams are still in with a chance of finishing in the top two. Spain will have the opportunity to cement their place in the next round with a victory over Morocco, who have already been eliminated after back to back defeats.

Surprise group leaders Iran meet one of the tournament favorites Spain in the second round of group B at World Cup in Russia on Wednesday evening.

Iran unexpectedly beat Morocco in the first round with Aziz Bouhaddouz handing them invaluable three points by heading into his own net deep in stoppage time. On the other hand, Spain were held to a 3-3 draw in a thrilling encounter with European champions Portugal, with Cristiano Ronaldo earning and superbly taking a free-kick to score a hat-trick and knock two points out of their tightly closed hand late on.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is finally upon us and here at My Arsenal Blog, we thought we’d take a closer look at some of the games which may or may not feature some of the Gunners’ biggest names. We’re kicking things off with arguably the game of the group stages, as local rivals Portugal and Spain battle it out to determine who gains control of Group B heading into the second set of fixtures.

What can be expected of Stephan Lichtsteiner? 0

On Sunday evening, Spain welcomed Switzerland for a friendly game as the 32 national teams prepare to embark upon the World Cup in Russia that starts next week.

With Arsenal set to finalize the deal to sign Stephan Lichsteiner, there is very little doubt that the likes of Unai Emery, Ivan Gazidis, Sven Mislintat and Raul Sanllehi will already know everything there is to know about the player. However, this particular game offered some useful insight into what the fans can expect from the 34-year-old fullback. It would certainly have been better if we had the chance to see Granit Xhaka alongside him, but the Arsenal midfielder is still battling against time to be fit for the upcoming tournament.

Was there always going to be a shock appointment? 1

The dust is finally starting to settle on Arsenal’s 2017/18 season, and for the most part, it was quite notable. The club were unable to challenge for the Premier League title yet again, they failed to win either of the two domestic cup competitions, and their Europa League adventure came to an end when they were defeated over two legs by Atletico Madrid at the semi-final stage. Oh, and did we mention that Arsene Wenger left his post as Arsenal manager?

Hector Bellerin is done 0

Posted on May 04, 2018 by Harry Kettle

At the age of just 23, you’d think that Hector Bellerin would be on the verge of reaching ‘world-class’ status based on the hype surrounding him over the last few years. Instead, the Spaniard seems to be backtracking in the worst way possible and after last night, we believe that he shouldn’t be seen in an Arsenal shirt for a very, very long time.

Arsenal’s biggest key to victory tonight 0

Posted on May 03, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Tonight will see the conclusion of Arsenal’s journey to the final of the Europa League, and one way or another, it’s going to end in heartbreak for somebody. Either the Gunners will fall just before the final hurdle, or the hotly tipped Spaniards will falter down the stretch as they attempt to secure their second UEL title under the reign of Diego Simeone. One thing is for sure, however – by the end of the night, there are going to be plenty of talking points coming out of the second leg.

Is Diego Simeone too unpredictable for Arsenal? 0

Posted on May 02, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The search for Arsenal’s new manager continues to rage on and in a lot of ways, it’s already becoming a little bit exhausting for Arsenal fans. While there’s obviously a great deal of excitement in the air, there are just too many names being thrown around to keep count at this stage. It’s not like when David Moyes replaced Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford because, in that instance, it seemed as if the Everton boss was always going to be the clear favourite to take over.

The two faces of Mesut Ozil – Germany and Arsenal 0

Posted on March 25, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Mesut Ozil is and always has been a polarising figure following his initial move to the Emirates. At first, his transfer was seen as a groundbreaking moment for the club as they were able to lure a world-class superstar to their team. Since then, however, a perceived lack of effort in addition to some inconsistent displays have left many to wonder whether or not the German is still a player of an extremely high calibre.
