2018 FIFA WORLD CUP
It would be on July 6th in which the first Quarter-final would take place between Australia and Wales. Though many expected the Euro 2016 runners-up  to give the Socceroo's a battering, what followed would be one of the more craziest games in this World Cup in which just after two minutes, Jedniak scored the opening goal after thanks to some slack defending from the Welsh and the Dragons would end up having to chase the game and would though getting a goal back from Allen just before the break.
If Wales thought in the second half they would get the better of Australia, they were to be in for a shock in which Australia retook the lead in the sixty-eighth minute and looked set to be on course for a shock victory and make it to the last four. But the lead would not last long in which Bale came to the rescue just a few minutes later and thus the game would end up going into extra time.

It would be during extra time that Wales would be awarded a controversial penalty that despite being given the all clear from VAR, the Australians felt there was a dive involved and it would be from the spot that Bale would step up and score the winning goal to give the winning goal to put Wales into the last four for the first time  while the Australians were cursing their luck that their Quarter-Final stigma would remain for now. Question now was how far Wales could go as their supporters celebrated their victory long into the night...
Later on that day would see the meeting of the former World Champions taking on what many claimed to be the team that seemed set to go on and win the World Cup, Belgium. Despite the hype surrounding them, it didn't seem to bother the Belgians as in just over half an hour, the Belgians would roar into a 2-0 lead and never did seem like looking back and it was hard to say if this team was that good or this Spanish team's time was over.
Even in the second half, Spain would struggle to get a foothold into the game and Belgium looked like a side that was hungry to score another goal to really rub it in yet some credit had to be given for them not giving in and even managed to get a goal back to give them hope. Sadly that goal would be nothing more than a consolation as Belgium would be victorious in a 2-1 win and moved onwards to the last four for the first time .
Spain vs Belgium in the Knockout stage
Funnily enough it would be the only Quarter-final in that World Cup that would not go into extra time which explained a lot how well organised this Belgium side was and with how easily they had dispatched the Spanish, it showed everyone how serious this side was for going all the way. Question was, could they do it...?
The following day would begin with England taking on Uruguay in which many felt might be quite a tasty encounter though what was served up was a bad tempered and tense game in which neither side seemed more interesting trying not to lose than win. Uruguay weren't helped that some of their players were already on a yellow card and it would be a game best left to be forgotten about. England would get a penalty in the thirty-seventh minute but in a shocking turn of events, Kane would hit the post and the first half would end in a 0-0 draw and that told you what you needed to know how brutal this game was.
The second half was no better as England did look to be the better team trying to score yet Uruguay had resorted into something to akin like Columbia in the last round by kicking lumps out of the players. Nothing happened in the second half other than some yellow cards going up and the match would move into extra-time and it would be then in which from a header from Maguire, the deadlock would finally be broken to give England a scrappy yet justified victory .

England would be unhappy how rough this Uruguay team had been to play against but nonetheless happy that they had moved into the last four and hoped that their World Cup hopes would start to look more promising. Question was now, as with the others who had made it, could they really
As the old saying goes, the best is served for last and it would be in a mouth-watering clash with Brazil and France, both of who were considered strong favourites for the cup and seeing one of them go out would open up the competition. In those ninety minutes audiences everywhere were to be treated to a madcap affair in which Brazil took the lead first, only for France to get back in it from a spot kick. The first half would end 1-1 and the second half, like the first, began with Brazil taking the lead again only for France one again to get a goal back.
The ninety minutes would end 2-2 and it was considered already as the best game in the tournament and extra-time had not been played yet and who knows how well that would end up. That period of play would not have any goals but would be a thrilling goal in the battle of domination and the game would end up going to penalties and it was hard to say who would hold their nerve.
France vs Brazil in their Quarter-final tie
In the end, it would be France that missed two vital kicks while Brazil held their nerve to banish the demons of their humiliating exit to Australia in similar circumstances four years ago  and thus Brazil would go through and France were dumped out of the World Cup . Brazil would end up be the sole non-European team left in the tournament and now this was where the real fighting began to see who would win now...
Final results of the 2018 Quarter-finals
There we are then, eight now become four and here is the Semi-Finals as they stand:
 Yes, Wales made it to the final ITTL but lose out to France who win Euro 2016 on home soil.
 ITTL and yet to happen for OTL...yet.
 They win in the Quarter-final by the same score line as with OTL.
 England move into the last four with Uruguay going out at this stage both as like OTL.
 Look back on TTL's 2014 WC.
 Changed results for Brazil and France in which the former do better than OTL while the latter much worse, no WC win for them here.
Wales vs Belgium
Brazil vs England
Who will win by what score line and why. You know the rules and we are getting near the end of this TL which is something I haven't thought about until now. Still, hope you are all doing well and until then, catch you all later!
