To play in the knockout stages of a Football World Cup is something that most players dream of, and for fans it is also an unforgettable experience to see your team battle it out to make it to the quarter-finals. There have been some extraordinary last 16 matches in the annals of Football World Cup history. Notably was Argentina's 2-1 win over Mexico when Maxi Rodriguez rifled an unstoppable volley into the top corner in extra time. Another round of 16 match, more memorable for controversy than quality, was Germany's 4-1 win over England. With the Germans leading 2-1, Frank Lampard shot from range and, with the ball clearly crossing the line, the goal was not given. This incident would eventually lead to goal-line technology being introduced in football matches from 2012 onwards. What about Belgium against Japan in Russia in 2018? With Japan leading 2-0, the Belgians produced an inspired comeback and won the match 3-2 in the final kick of the game to the depair of the Japanese players.
