  • Brazil will be looking to buck a worrying trend at World Cup tournaments that has seen them carry their favourite's mantle impressively early on, before seeing everything unravel in one substandard performance, as they did when losing 7-1 to Germany in 2014, and then 2-1 to Belgium in Russia. Brazil again have the quality to sweep all before them, but to do so they must hold it together for those seven consecutive games.

  • Switzerland reached just one World Cup tournament between 1966 and 2006, but are now preparing for their fifth straight appearance, and will be looking to improve on their previous best efforts of reaching the last 16. Before they look that far ahead, however, the Swiss will need to recapture the kind of form that saw them beat Portugal and Spain in the Nations League if they are to escape this competitive group.

  • Serbia must feel they have a severe case of deja-vu after being drawn in the same group as Brazil and Switzerland for the second straight tournament, with Cameroon replacing Costa Rica from their 2018 opponents. Despite the task ahead, the Serbians will be on the crest of a wave after following up their last-gasp automatic qualification with a successful Nations League campaign that saw them top the group to reach next year's finals.

  • Cameroon could be forgiven for just coming along for the World Cup ride after being drawn in such a tough group. They have not made the knock-out stage in any of their last five appearances at the finals, and it would come as no major surprise to see them produce the same pointless campaigns that they endured in both 2010 and 2014.

Crunch games

Any group containing Brazil promises some entertainment along the way, and assuming they show up and strut their stuff, then that leaves Switzerland and Serbia as probable contenders for the second qualifying spot from what looks to be a very competitive group. Should they both have seen off the challenge of Cameroon and come second-best to the Brazilians, then the scene should be set for what will effectively be an all-European playoff when they meet in the final group game on December 2nd.

  • Probable qualifiers:   Brazil & Switzerland

Possible dark horses:   Serbia
