There’s an insurrection in the world of football. And it’s not just that holders Germany were knocked out before the knockouts began. Even Argentina, Spain, Brazil – all card-holding members of football royalty – were made to sweat and shiver by teams of lesser pedigree.

 

Iran, South Korea, Nigeria, even Saudi Arabia, had their moments in the ongoing 2018 World Cup in Russia. They earned points and prestige. But more importantly, they made most matches utterly unpredictable. Now only 16 teams remain. The knockouts begin on Saturday. Get ready for the unexpected. Again. As in the good, old Hitchcock movies.
