As the final match day of the group stage in Qatar is ready to kick off this Friday afternoon, the most popular national soccer team fan tokens are still on a strong bearish trend. To illustrate, Spain’s surprise loss to Japan yesterday didn’t stop them from advancing to the playoffs. However, Spain National Football Team Fan Token (SNFT) took a beating, as it’s down by 25.7% since the final whistle.
Brazil & Portugal Face Deficit on Match Day

At press time, Brazil National Football Team Fan Token (BFT) is priced at $0.189748, according to CoinGecko. Marking an eye-watering 20.7% deficit over the last 24 hours, Brazil’s national crypto is sobbing with 64.4% in the red since last week.
On the other hand, Portugal is getting ready to take on South Korea and, like Brazil, has also guaranteed themselves a playoff spot. However, Portugal National Team Fan Token (POR) is already down by 6.1% in the last 24 hours. To add, the Portuguese team’s crypto is suffering a 33% weekly shortfall and is a whopping 48% in the red since the start of the World Cup. At press time, POR trades at $2.94, according to CoinGecko.
