FIFA WORLD CUP 2022: GROUP H

FIFA WORLD CUP 2022: GROUP H

World CupGroup H has all the teams that make up a great World Cup group; a national team from every confederation with the potential of Ghana or Korea Republic to cause an upset and knock out the favourites. 

The Korean Republic national team will make its 11th appearance in the World Cup Group stages, appearing consecutively in every edition since 1986. Korea Republic’s best performance is fourth place in the 2002 World Cup, which they co-hosted with Japan. 

Throughout the games in Group H, we will be watching some of the best talents with Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Heung-min Son, Edison Cavani and much more.

WHO EXACTLY ARE THE PARTICIPANTS OF GROUP H?

Group H will be one that might go to the wire. Portugal comes in as the favourites to claim the top spot as they come well equipped with a fantastic array of talent in all areas of the field. Following Portugal come Uruguay, who have won the FIFA World Cup twice before. In the previous World Cup in Russia, the South American team managed to top their group but were eliminated by the eventual winners in the quarter-finals. 

Korea Republic missed out on the Round of 16 in Russia but will do their utmost to make the most of their latest chance in a World Cup and prove that they are not simply there to make up the numbers.

PORTUGAL

The 2016 FIFA Euro winners embark on the mission to claim another historic win, this time in the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The squad is tipped to be one of the best, with a host of talent in every aspect of the team. Young talents such as Renato Sanchez, Rafael Leao and Joao Felix add another dimension to the team. 

At the back, Ruben Dias, together with Pepe, complement each other while the versatile of Joao Cancelo and Nuno Mendes on either side of them making one of the best defensive lines in the competition. Shifting the focus on the star-studded midfield, Portugal enjoy the talents of Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva and Renato Sanchez, all eager to feed a hungry attack. The forward line is as dynamic as you like, with Cristiano Ronaldo being the most influential along with the younger players in around him like Diogo Jota and Joao Felix. 

Coach Fernando Santos will have all the ammunition in hand to fight off any squad. Portugal will surely be a force to be reckoned with. 

KOREA REPUBLIC 

The Korea Republic team have achieved great success in recent years, making them one of the most consistent nations to make it to the FIFA World Cup. One of the most important players within their ranks is Heung-min Son, who is enjoying one of the best seasons playing for Tottenham Hotspur. Another notable player is Hee-chan Hwang, who plays in the Premier League with Wolves. 

The Asian team will be ready to put on a fight as we seen in previous years, winning against Germany who at that time were the reigning World champions which ultimately eliminated them from the competition. Will the Korean Republic have what it takes to cause an upset and reach

URUGUAY 

The South American team have performed well in the previous edition of the FIFA World Cup with a quarter-final appearance in Russia. This competition will taste differently to players such as Suarez and Cavani, who will be playing the last games for their national team before retiring. 

One of the up and coming talents in world football will look to stamp his authority with his first appearance on the World Cup stage, Darwin Nunez. At the time of writing, the 22-year-old plays with Benfica and is a hot topic across all the best teams worldwide. 

GHANA

As one of the few African teams in the Qatar World Cup, Ghana will be looking to perform well when coming up against some of the best nations in the world. Within the group they are placed in, Ghana have slim chances of making it through to the knockout stages, but nothing is impossible. Influential players within their ranks are more than capable of inspiring a remarkable story, with Thomas Partey in the middle and Jordan Ayew spearheading the Ghana attack.
