  • Portugal qualified for just two of the first sixteen World Cups but they have since developed into a European heavyweight about to embark on their sixth straight tournament. However, they have not reached the quarter finals in any of their last three attempts, and although they kick off as favourites to win their group, recent form suggests that they will have to work hard to justify that tag.

  • Uruguay would love to replicate their group stage performance from 2018, when three cleans sheets in three wins saw them cruise to the knock-out stages, only to come up against the effervescent French in the quarter finals. They come into the tournament with seven wins and a goalless draw from their last nine games, but they won't be able to afford any performances like the one that saw them slip to a 1-0 defeat to Iran in September.

  • Ghana will be keen to prove they are not in Qatar just to make the numbers up, but it's hard to make a case for them making much of an impact on this group. Although they have strung some wins together during 2022, their recent 3-0 defeat at the hands of Brazil suggest they might struggle against quality opposition.

  • South Korea are still dining out on their memorable 2-0 win in Russia that inflicted a group-stage exit on Germany for the first time ever. However, it is worth remembering that the Koreans also failed to progress in 2018, and that victory was one of just three they have enjoyed in 13 attempts at the last four World Cup tournaments. They will need to be at their very best if they are to improve that record and make the knock-out stage.

Crunch games

The closest this Qatar World Cup has to an infamous group of death would appear to be Group H, with Portugal, Uruguay, South Korea and Ghana all high in the FIFA rankings on their respective continents. All six games will be crucial, drawn games would appear likely, and all four teams could have something to play for when the final round of group games kick off on December 2nd. Portugal and Uruguay will be clear market favourites to progress, but this group looks more likely than any to see an upset or two.

  • Probable qualifiers:   Portugal & Uruguay

Possible dark horses:   South Korea
