The group stage round threw up some massive upsets and results, with Saudi Arabia stunning Argentina, Cameroon beating Brazil and Japan topping their group ahead of Spain and Germany, who're no longer in the World Cup.

Australia pipped Tunisia and Denmark to second place in Group D, sparking wild scenes down under.

Morocco also made it to the next round, topping Group F ahead of 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia.
