BRAZIL

Although they come equipped with all the flair in the world, in recent years, the national team of Brazil have failed to deliver success to their demanding nation. Football in Brazil is not just a sport; it is a way of life, something that we saw come to the fore in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Just before the World Cup draw, Brazil were ranked in the FIFA world rankings, making them the overall favourites for the competition.

What makes Brazil the favourite? To be successful in such a tournament, a team needs to have great depth within its squad and have replacements as good as the starting 11. In goal, Allison is acclaimed as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, playing for Liverpool and winning various titles. At the back, the pairing of Eder Militao and Marquinhos will subdue any attacking force with their agility and composure on the ball. In the midfield, they have two of the world’s best defensive midfielders in Fabinho and Casemiro. The attack is on another level, having Neymar, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, Coutinho and Martinelli all available having a mix of youth as well as experienced players. 

SERBIA

Serbia nicked first place in Group A ahead of Portugal, who lost the decisive last game. Serbia won the group without registering a single loss across all qualifiers, drawing only two. A player that has taken the limelight recently is Dusan Vlahovic, who signed for Juventus in the January transfer market after setting the Serie A on fire with Fiorentina.

The win against Portgual came thanks to a heroic strike from veteran Alexander Mitrovic which secured his nation’s participation in yet another FIFA World Cup. One of the issues that might hinder the progress of the Serbian team is the fact that they have an ageing squad. 

SWITZERLAND 

The Swiss team has beaten Italy to the group stages of the Qatar FIFA World Cup, as they went unbeaten, conceding just two goals in the process. Similar to the situation for Serbia, the Swiss team have an ageing squad with great players such as Xhaka and Shaqiri reaching the end of their National career. 

They will be aiming to reach yet another knockout stage beating Serbia to it. Will they have what it takes to reach the knockout stage?

CAMEROON

Although the underdogs of the group, the African team will surely be up for the fight especially if they get off to a great start. The Cameroon national team will appear for the eighth time in their history. Recently, Cameroon came in third in the AFCON after beating Burkina Faso on penalties.
