The Qatar 2022 World Groups have already been defined, and the winter World Cup event is getting closer and closer. This November will start this atypical and controversial tournament that will not leave anyone indifferent since the World Cup atmosphere can be smelled, the rivalries are already felt and we are already dreaming of the great matches that we will be able to see in this group stage.

For this reason, we wanted to bring a review of the World Cup Groups and everything you need to know about the countries that will participate in the twenty-second edition of the World Cup.

Group A (Ecuador):

Group A of the Qatar 2022 World Cup will be the group in which we can find the host. The Qatari team will share the phase with the Ecuadorian team, with Senegal and with the Dutch team.

Of course, the East will also be one of the most exciting groups, as there are three teams that are at a very high level and have big stars that could make the difference.

Group B (United States)

Group B of the World Cup will be one of the lowest collective level since only the England team stands out internationally for recent achievements (Euro finalists). In addition to the Three Lions, Group B will feature Iran, the United States and the last qualifier in the UEFA playoffs is Wales.

Group C (Argentina and Mexico):

Group C will be the favorite of many in this World Cup in Qatar 2022. The Argentine team will lead this exceptional phase and arrive as the main favorite to qualify for the next round. However, the Scaloneta will not have it easy at all, since they will have to face the complicated Mexican team, Poland, and Saudi Arabia, which was the least graceful of the draw.

Of course, the main attraction will be the duel between two nations with a rivalry that transcends football, but reaches culture, since Argentina and Mexico will be the Latin protagonists of the group. In addition, there is also the Messi – Lewandowski duel , which promises to be the highlight of the group.

Group D (France):

Group D, like several others in the World Cup, allows us to elucidate well in advance the countries that start as favorites to qualify for the next round. The France team, led by players of the stature of Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappé, Griezmann, Dembélé, N’Golo Kante, and stop counting, will be the great rival to beat since the Gauls are the current champions of the tournament.

In addition, the team from Denmark and Tunisia will also be in the group, waiting to meet who will be the last classified at this stage. Once the international repechage is played, Australia will be the one that completes group D after beating Peru.

Group E (Spain)

Group E, from Spain! The fifth group of the 2022 Qatar World Cup will feature the 2010 World Champion and the 2014 Champion. Luis Enrique’s Spanish team will have a real litmus test during the group stage since the Asturian coach’s project will have to be measured face to face against the prodigious German team.

In addition to Germany, Spain will also have to face Japan and the winner of the second international playoff, so the last participant in group E will be Costa Rica.

Group F:

Group F will not leave anyone indifferent during this group stage, as it will be one of the most evenly matched, not only for the individual talent of each nation but also for the excellent sporting projects of each one of them. For many, this is the feared group of death, since Belgium, Croatia, Canada, and Morocco will face each other for direct positions in the next round of the World Cup.

Belgium starts as favorites above the rest only because of their individual talent, but we have seen time and time again how the Belgian team is unable to measure up in the big tournaments. In addition, they will have to face the current runner-up in the world, the Croatian team that would be the other candidate to qualify for the round of 16. Canada and Morocco should not be underestimated, as each country has its own thing, and in a World Cup, anything can happen.

Group G (Brazil):

The penultimate group of the World Cup, Group G, will also be one of the most closely fought. However, what will probably be the most disputed will be access to the round of 16 via second place in the table, since the Brazilian team starts as favorites to dominate the group.

Those of Tite will have to face teams that although it is true that they are not of a low level, are not up to the Rio de Janeiro dominance. Serbia, led by young star Vlahovic, Switzerland, and Cameroon will be the countries that will complete this exciting group.

Group H (Uruguay):

Finally, we close with Group H. However, this is one of those cases where it is fair to say, last but not least, that this will be one of the most closely fought groups of this phase. With respect to the African participant, three of the countries stand out for the quality of the stars that are on their campuses.

Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea will be the main contenders to qualify for the knockout stages of the World Cup, while Ghana will be the weakest link in the group. The team led by Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Joao Cancelo, and other Portuguese stars will face Uruguay again, which already left them out of the last World Cup.
