Schedule for the Parisians' third week at the World Cup

Eleven Paris Saint-Germain players are currently playing in the 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup with their respective national teams. Here's a look back at the second week, and the schedule for the third week.


Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé's France team are heading for the quarter-finals. The French national team qualified for the knockout phase despite losing 1-0 to Tunisia on Wednesday at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, a match in which the number 7 of the club from the capital came on as a substitute. Didier Deschamps' men then won 3-1 against Poland four days later at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha in the last 16.

A match in which the 2018 world champion once again showed all his talent. He provided an assist for the opening goal and then scored two goals which led to him being voted best player of the match for the 3rd time in 4 matches. He thus scored his 4th and 5th goals in the competition, to take the sole lead in the competition's scoring charts, becoming the first player in history to score 9 goals in the competition before his 24th birthday. The 32nd and 33rd personal goals of the Parisian with Les Bleus also allow him to take 7th place in the ranking of France's top scorers, now 2 goals ahead of Zinédine Zidane.

The next step for the Tricolores is the quarter-finals and a clash with England on Saturday 10 December at 20:00 (in France, 22:00 in Qatar) at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al-Khor.


Portugal, with Paris Saint-Germain players Nuno Mendes, Danilo Pereira and Vitinha, also booked their place in the knockout phase, with last week's 2-0 win over Uruguay at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Lusail, despite an inconsequential 2-1 loss to South Korea four days later at Education City Stadium.

Having started the first game, the left-back had to give up his place shortly before the break due to an injury. The Parisian number 15, who suffered a rib injury in training, was already out for the rest of the group stage. The third Parisian was in the Portuguese starting line-up for the second match and was replaced at the end of the match. The next step for the Equipa das Quinas is the round of 16 and the match against Switzerland on Tuesday 6 December at 18:00 (in France, 20:00 in Qatar), once again in Lusail.


Spain's Carlos Soler and Pablo Sarabia, both of Paris Saint-Germain, are also heading to the knockout stages, despite a 2-1 loss to Japan on Thursday at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha, a match in which neither of the Rouge et Bleu played. In the round of 16, La Roja will face Morocco on Tuesday 6 December at 18:00 (in France, 20:00 in Qatar) at the Education City Stadium.


Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Keylor Navas's Costa Rica will not be in the Round of 16. Luis Fernando Suarez's men, who ended their group phase with a 4-2 defeat by Germany at the Al Bayt Stadium on Thursday, a game in which the rouge et bleu goalkeeper, who is still the captain, played the entire match, finished fourth in Pool E and will therefore leave the competition.


Argentina, led by Paris Saint-Germain striker Lionel Messi, have also qualified for the quarter-finals of the tournament. The Albiceleste first booked their place in the last 16 with a 2-0 win over Poland at Doha's 974 Stadium on Wednesday, then went on to beat Australia 2-1 three days later at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Al-Rayyan.

The number 30, who started and captained the team twice, scored twice and was voted player of the match against the Socceroos in the 1,000th game of his career. Lionel Scaloni's men will face the Netherlands in the next round at the Lusail Iconic Stadium on Friday 9 December at 20:00 (in France).


Paris Saint-Germain players Marquinhos and Neymar Jr's Brazil also booked their place in the knockout stage with a 1-0 win over Switzerland at Doha's Stadium 974 on Monday, despite losing 1-0 to Cameroon four days later at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.

After starting against the Nati, the club from the capital's defender came on against Cameroon shortly after the break. The number 10, who has an ankle injury, did not play in either match. The Seleção will next face South Korea on Monday 5 December at 20:00 (in France), once more at Stadium 974.


Paris Saint-Germain defender Achraf Hakimi's Morocco also booked their place in the last 16 after a 2-1 win over Canada at Doha's Al Thumama Stadium on Thursday. The rouge et bleu right-back was again in the starting line-up, providing an assist for the Atlas Lions' second goal before coming off late in the game, and was voted the player of the match. The club from the capital's number 2 will now face Spain's Carlos Soler and Pablo Sarabia at the Education City Stadium on Tuesday 6 December at 16:00 (in France, 18:00 in Qatar).
