FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022: With just 147 days till the tournament, all 32 nations have been selected and assigned to their respective groups. The FIFA World Cup this year features more evenly matched groups that allow all the minnows and underdogs to demonstrate their skill.

Brazil, Germany, and France are the favorites, just like in previous tournaments, but Scaloni’s resurgence in Argentina has transformed the country from a dark horse to a serious contender. Argentina is currently on a ferocious run of 32 unbeaten games, with their last defeat coming in 2019, a 2-0 loss to the reigning champions Brazil. They have also added two silverwares in the past 11 months (Copa America in July 2021, Finnalisma in June 2022).

FIFA World Cup Group Stage 2022

The unexpected and thrilling nature of the event is largely due to the dark horses, who frequently result in the formation of the “Group of Death.” Heung-Min Son’s motivated Korea could present a challenge for the victors of the 2016 Euro Cup in Group H of the Qatar World Cup. Portugal, Uruguay, and Ghana, the 2011 Copa America champions.

The FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 was the best illustration of why South Korea should never be underestimated or written off, since they were drawn in the same group as Sweden, Germany, and Mexico. Germany was expected to win the group, but Mexico and South Korea had other ideas. Germany suffered defeat as a result, and the defending champions placed last in their group.

We can anticipate Group H to be the Group of Death because Portugal and Uruguay are predicted to advance, but a determined South Korea and a reluctant Ghana, which includes Thomas Partey and Asamoah Gyan, could ruin the fun.

Group F, which consists of Belgium, Croatia, Morocco, and Canada, may also qualify as a “Group of Death” possibility. In addition to the well-established European nations in Group F, Canada and Morocco have experienced tremendous growth and are home to some of the best and most promising young players in the world, including Hakim Ziyech and Achraf Hakimi for Morocco, and Alphonso Davies for Canada.

Both sides are evenly matched in terms of strength, and the other two are Belgium and Croatia, two of the most dreaded underdogs in recent memory.

For the bulk of the last six years, Belgium has held the top spot in the FIFA rankings. Luka Modric played for Croatia in the final of the most recent tournament.

As a result, there will be at least two Group of Deaths this time around, and Qatar is looking forward to another exciting tale of an underdog that will be written and told.
