Summary of Current Matches
Groups A-F of the 2022 Qatar World Cup has completed all group matches. The Qatar World Cup ended all the matches in Group E and Group F. Group E had a big upset. Spain lost 1-2 to Japan. However, because Germany defeated Costa Rica 4-2, Spain managed to hold the second place in the group and advanced to the top 16. Germany is out. The Japanese team, which won the upset, won the top spot in the group and advanced to the round of 16 strongly. Group F qualifying teams are Morocco and Croatia.
At present, 14 seats have been confirmed for the top 16 of the World Cup, belonging to the Netherlands, Senegal, England, the United States, Argentina, Poland, France, Australia, Japan, Spain, Morocco, Croatia, Brazil, and Portugal. The knockout matches that have been determined include the Netherlands VS United States, Argentina VS Australia, France VS Poland, England VS Senegal, Japan VS Croatia, and Morocco VS Spain. The top 16 is only short of the last two seats, which will be produced in Groups G and H. The last four group matches are South Korea VS Portugal, Ghana VS Uruguay, Cameroon VS Brazil, and Serbia VS Switzerland.
South Korea vs Portugal
In the third round of Group H of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, South Korea will face Portugal. South Korea is undoubtedly the best Asian team in the World Cup. From the perspective of grouping, it is not easy for the Korean team to break through this tournament. The other three opponents come from different continents, have different styles, and are all strong. But to make matters worse, the player Sun Xingmin was suddenly injured in early November. In the first two rounds of group matches, South Korea tied Uruguay and lost to Ghana, and currently only has 1 point. If they want to advance, they must win this campaign and score as many goals as possible to prevent Uruguay from defeating Ghana. Teams compare goal differences. But for the Korean team, defeating the Portuguese team is already an unattainable goal.
The Portuguese team is about to enter the World Cup stage for the eighth time. The Portuguese team must first strive for the first place in the group because once they qualify as the second in the group, they are likely to encounter the Brazilian team in the knockout round. In the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup, South Korea and Portugal were in the same group. At that time, Portugal's "golden generation" led by Figo was at its peak and was the favorite to win the championship. But in the game, the Portuguese team was sent off two people, and the host South Korea team won 1-0 and advanced to the fourth place, creating the best record in the team's World Cup history. This is also the only time the two teams have faced each other in the World Cup. After a lapse of 20 years, they meet again. Although the Portuguese team has advanced ahead of schedule, they will not give up this opportunity for revenge.
Ghana vs Uruguay
The Ghana team is the biggest unknown in Group H. They have advanced to the World Cup finals again after 8 years. No matter in terms of players or lineup, they are a bit mysterious. It is also for this reason that they are likely to be the spoilers of this group. The Ghanaian team won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1963, 1965, 1978, and 1982, and became the first African team to win an Olympic men's football medal in 1992. Midfielder Thomas is excellent in both defense and offense and is the most expensive player in the Ghanaian team, currently playing for Arsenal. The more famous strikers are the Ayew brothers, whose father is the legendary Ghanaian star, Abedi Bailey. From the perspective of technical and tactical style, the Ghanaian team is a typical African team, smart but tough. The players' excellent physical talent and natural ball sense keep them among the strong African teams. At present, many players in this team play in the Bundesliga, La Liga, and Premier League, and their abilities are good. Therefore, although the Ghana team may be the team with the worst qualifying situation in this group, the World Cup has never lacked "dark horses".
The Uruguayan team with Suarez and Cavani is a frequent visitor to the World Cup and won two championships in the distant 1930 and 1950. Suarez has played for 6 professional clubs in 4 countries in South America and Europe. He has rich experience, won 1 Champions League and 5 La Liga titles, and won the European Golden Boot twice. In the Uruguay team, Suarez participated in three consecutive World Cups and won the 2011 Copa America. He is currently also the player with the most goals in the history of the Uruguayan team, and he is the team's pinnacle. Suarez left too many regrets in the World Cup. Now, participating in the World Cup for the fourth time, Suarez, who will be 36 years old in two months, does not want to have any more regrets.
Serbia vs Switzerland
The two sides met once in the 2018 World Cup when Serbia lost 1-2 to Switzerland. The Serbia team was tied 3-3 by Cameroon in the second round of the World Cup group stage. It is a pity that the team failed to score three points. Throughout the game, Serbia had a 60% of ball possession rate. The control is still in place. Although the opponent scored first in the first half, the team scored 3 goals one after another to overtake the score. After that, the team did not make any achievements. On the contrary, Cameroon seized the opportunity to score two consecutive goals within 3 minutes in the second half. The team had no choice but to get a draw. After this campaign, Serbia only scored 1 point and ranked bottom in the group with 1 draw and 1 loss. However, the team still has a chance to advance. Brazil will not release Cameroon easily. As long as the team can beat Switzerland in this game, they can get second place. qualifying places, but Switzerland is by no means an underdog, and it is not easy to grab points.
The Swiss team lost 0-1 to Brazil in the second round of the World Cup group stage. It is also a pity that the team conceded a goal at the last moment. Throughout the whole game, although the Swiss team was relatively passive on the scene and did not perform much on the offensive end, they always maintained a good defense. Unfortunately, in the last 10 minutes of the game, there was still a loophole. Miro finally got his chance to score the winning goal, and the Swiss lost the match. After this campaign, the Swiss team won 1 win and 1 loss and ranked second in the group with 3 points. Brazil, the leader of the list, has already secured a qualifying spot, and the teams behind them also have the opportunity to compete for another spot, but the Brazilian team should not be there. Cameroon lost points, and the Swiss team can win another qualifying place without defeat in this game. Compared with their opponents, the pressure is relatively small.
Cameroon vs Brazil
Cameroon lost 1-0 to Brazil in the last friendly match between the two sides. Cameroon drew with Serbia 3-3 in the second match of the World Cup group stage, and the team still showed good resilience. Throughout the game, although Cameroon only had 40% of the ball possession rate and was inferior to the opponent in terms of field control, they played back and forth with the opponent on the offensive end. Castelletto took the lead in the first half, and the opponent immediately attacked Cameroon and scored 3 goals in return. Fortunately, in the second half, Cameroon found a good opportunity and scored two consecutive cities to equalize the score within 3 minutes. After that, the two sides made no achievements. After this campaign, Cameroon scored 1 point and ranked third in the group with 1 draw and 1 loss. In theory, there is still a chance to advance, but facing the world's number one Brazil team, it may be impossible to get all three points. For the Brazilian team, which is worth several times more than itself, Cameroon should lose less and win more.
Brazil beat Switzerland 1-0 in the second round of the World Cup group stage. Although they didn't get a big victory, they just need to win. Throughout the game, the Brazilian team still has the advantage on the field. Although Neymar failed to play, the talented Brazilian team is still on the offensive. Unfortunately, the opposing Swiss team is also known for its toughness and has never been able to win. Let Brazil score a goal. At 83 minutes before the end of the game, Fat Tiger Casemiro finally found a chance to score the only goal of the game, and finally helped the team successfully defeat the opponent and get all three points. After this campaign, the Brazilian team won 2 games and qualified ahead of time. It is not difficult for the Brazilian team to qualify for the group. The last game of the horse and Danilo can also continue to recover from injuries. The Brazilian team should make a large-scale rotation. Possibly, but even so, the Brazilian team's substitutes are the team's leading players in all major leagues, and their strength is beyond the reach of ordinary players. The rare opportunity to play may create many miracles.
