How was Al-Hilm, the golden match ball, before ‘Benefits only for semi-finalists’?

The World Cup official ball changes from ‘journey’ to ‘dream’.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is running towards its end. Unlike the round of 16, which was relatively unpredictable, unexpected changes occurred one after another in the round of 8. As a result, the semi-final match between Argentina (ranked 3rd in the FIFA rankings) and Croatia (ranked 12th in the FIFA rankings), Morocco (ranked 22nd in the FIFA) and France (ranked 4th in the FIFA rankings) was completed.

Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, drew 2-2 with the Netherlands, led by Virgil van Dijk. There was also a crisis when they gave up an equalizer just before the end. Nonetheless, Argentina calmly faced the Netherlands and advanced to the semi-finals with a victory after a penalty shoot-out.

Croatia, who shined as the runner-up at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, also survived. It also defeated Brazil, which was evaluated as the most likely winner of this tournament. Croatia finished 1-1 in regular time, went through extra time and defeated Brazil in a penalty shootout to advance to the semifinals.

Morocco, which appeared as an ambush in Africa, produced a miracle. Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias, João Cancelo, etc. defeated Portugal, where world-class players endured. As a result, they succeeded in advancing to the semifinals of the World Cup for the first time in African history.

France also showed its potential. The ‘100 Year War’ was fought on the ground with England armed with the golden generation. France caught England with consecutive goals from Aurelien Chuameni and Olivier Giroud, and is running towards the goal of winning its third title in its career and for the second time in a row. 토토사이트

With the semifinals imminent, a new official ball was born. ‘Al-Hilm’, which symbolizes ‘dream’, was born from ‘Alilla’, which meant ‘journey’. The background has been changed from white to gold, and the arrow pattern has been unified from blue, red, and yellow to reddish brown, which symbolizes Qatar.

‘Adidas’, which is in charge of producing official balls with FIFA, has produced special official balls before. 2006 Germany World Cup Team Geist to Tim Geist Berlin, 2010 South Africa World Cup Jabulani to Zoblani, 2014 Brazil World Cup Brazuca to Brazuca Final Rio, 2018 Russia World Cup Telstar 18 to Telstar 18 Mechita.

Team Geist Berlin, Joblani and Brazuca Final Rio were used only for the finals. The Telstar 18 Mechta used in the last tournament was used from the tournament stage. The newly unveiled ‘Al Hilm’ will be used in the semifinals, 3rd and 4th place matches, and finals.

Croatia and Argentina will face each other at 4:00 am on the 14th, and Morocco and France will face each other at 4:00 am on the 15th.
