Two groups are always working at the same time. On November 24th, it will be Groups G and H:
Brazil – Serbia: Lusail (Lusail Stadium)
Brazil: The dream of the "Hexa" is omnipresent in Brazil. In Qatar, the long-awaited sixth world title should finally work out. And the chances are good. No other team has such a top-class attacking team as the Seleção: whether Neymar, Vinicius Júnior, Raphinha or Antony - the Brazilian squad is brimming with quality. The only question will be how well all of this comes together in the first game. The Serbs are considered an uncomfortable opponent due to their robustness. Despite all ball artists, the main thing will be to counteract them.
Serbia: The Serbs have participated in a World Cup finals three times in the past 16 years - and three times they were eliminated after the preliminary round in 2006, 2010 and 2018. The hope for improvement has two main reasons: The Serbian offensive is very strong with players like Dusan Vlahovic, ex-Frankfurt Filip Kostic (both Juventus Turin) or Dusan Tadic (Ajax Amsterdam). And coach Dragan Stojkovic is an idol in his home country, who the players look up to and who lets them play very offensively according to their potential.
Switzerland – Cameroon: Al-Wakra (Al-Janub Stadium)
Switzerland: The Swiss want to get further than at the last two World Cups, in which they were eliminated in the round of 16. The team has quality, but a real goalscorer is missing. The axis should be Gladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer, former Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji, captain and midfielder Granit Xhaka and ex-Bayern offensive player Xherdan Shaqiri, who now plays for Chicago Fire in the USA. The dress rehearsal for the tournament in Qatar failed: there was a 2-0 defeat against Ghana in last week's friendly.
Cameroon: The Africans secured the ticket in a memorable way: by scoring in extra time in extra time in the second leg of the play-off against Algeria. The team is considered a grab bag that can be trusted to do anything in any direction. Three men give hope: the former world-class striker Samuel Eto'o, now president of the association. The longtime captain and defense chief Rigobert Song, today national coach. And the striker Eric Maxim Choupo Moting, who has been playing well at FC Bayern Munich for weeks.
Uruguay – South Korea: Education City Stadium (Al-Rajjan)
Uruguay: Since the 2010 World Cup, when Uruguay finished third, the team has always reached the knockout stages. In Qatar, a mature guard led by Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani will be making their last World Cup appearance after a difficult qualifier. Defender Ronald Araujo from FC Barcelona is fit in time for the start of the World Cup after tearing his adductor muscle and a long injury break.
South Korea: In 2018, South Korea sealed the embarrassing defeat of the then world champion Germany with a 2-0 win. However, the prestige success was not enough to advance. In any case, the two-time Asian champions in ten World Cup participations only made it past the preliminary round at the home World Cup in 2002 (fourth place) and 2010 (round of 16). The omens aren't the best this time either, especially as superstar Heung-Min Son sustained a facial fracture ahead of the tournament. But the former hamburger can play with a mask.
Portugal – Ghana: Doha (Stadium 974)
Portugal: The start of the World Cup will also be Cristiano Ronaldo's first application for a new job. Two days before the game, Manchester United and the superstar, who can now openly plan his future, parted ways. While the 37-year-old was often just a substitute at his club, he is undisputed in the national team. The title at his last World Cup would not be the worst application.
Ghana: Ghana's hopes rest on Otto Addo's tactical flair. Born in Hamburg, he took charge of the national team in February after a poor showing at the Africa Cup of Nations and led them to the World Cup by beating rivals Nigeria in the playoffs. However, Addo's time as Ghana's national coach is limited - the 47-year-old is still employed by BVB and will return there after the tournament.
During the group phase, up to four games take place every day - it's easy to lose track of things. That is why we have summarized all groups for you in the 2022 World Cup schedule.
