32 nations that qualified for the FIFA World Cup 2022 are drawn into eight groups, and here is the group-by-group breakdown.
France, Australia, Denmark, and Tunisia
France won the last World Cup 2018 in Russia with a final win against Croatia. This year they are again one of the biggest favorites to win the World Cup. Looking at the group they shouldn't have any problems going into the next round of the tournament. In Russia, Group C was almost the same as France, Australia, and Denmark, only then the fourth team was Peru, and now the fourth team is Tunisia. France finished first in the group and Denmark second, Australia was last. Predictions for the tournament in Qatar are almost the same, with France as first, and Denmark as second favorites to go through to the next round. Tunisia or Australia will have to settle with third and respectably fourth place finish in this group. Two teams that advance to the next round cross path with Group C.
FRANCE: France disappointed 2021 in the last EURO tournament by losing against Switzerland in the final 16 round. They will be trying to redeem themselves this year by going all the way. France certainly has the quality to do just that. Two-time World Cup winners (1998 and 2018) are for ten years led by coach Didier Deschamps. The team is packed with talent in all areas of the team. In attack is by many experts, at the moment best and most expensive player in the world Kylian Mbape from PSG, also there is Karim Benzema, best goal scorer of last Champions League from Real Madrid. Great young forwards are Christopher Nkunku from Red Bull Leipzig and Moussa Diaby from Bayer Leverkusen. The Midfield general is N'Golo Kante from Chelsea whose successor most likely will be Real Madrid's latest addition young Aurelien Tchouameni. In defense are Raphael Varane from Manchester United, Jules Kounde from Sevilla, and Lucas and Theo Hernandez from Bayern Munich, and AC Milan just to name a few. The first choice goalkeeper is experienced Hugo Lloris from Tottenham. Anything else than a top-three finish would be a great surprise for this excellent team.
AUSTRALIA: Australia qualified for the World Cup 2022 after the win against the United Arab Emirates in the Asian qualifying playoff and six days later with a win after penalties against Peru in FIFA intercontinental playoff. This will be their sixth World Cup appearance. Since 2018 Australia's coach is Graham Arnold. Australia will have a tough time achieving anything else than third or fourth place in this group. The Socceroos' best players are Mathew Ryan goalkeeper from Real Sociedad, midfielder Tom Rogic from Celtic, and forward Ajdin Hrustic from Eintracht Frankfurt.
DENMARK: Denmark had an impressive EURO tournament last year. They reached the semi-final, where they lost against England in extra time. The EURO tournament started shocking for Denmark after their captain Christian Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest during the game against Finland. He was hospitalized, and not only was his football career in question but his life also. Eventually, he recovered and was signed by Brentford during the winter transfer window. Against all odds, he showed impressive displays on the pitch during his time in Brentford. He later earned a recall to Denmark national team. Eriksen will lead Denmark to the World Cup 2022. In this group, Denmark is a strong second favorite behind France. Denmark qualified for the World Cup 2022 as UEFA Group F winners and this will be their ninth World Cup appearance. Their coach is Kasper Hjulmand and the best player is before mentioned Christian Eriksen. Other players worth looking at are Mikkel Damsgaard from Sampdoria, Yussuf Poulsen from Red Bull Leipzig, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Tottenham, Andreas Christensen latest addition to the Barcelona squad, and experienced goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel from Leicester.
TUNISIA: Tunisia qualified for the World Cup 2022 via 2-0 win final qualifying round against Mali. This will be their sixth World Cup appearance. The team is led by former assistant coach Jalel Kadri, who took over the team in January 2022. The best player is Wahbi Khazri from Saint-Etienne, followed by Manchester United's young talent Hannibal Mejbri. In their first five appearances in World Cup, they never progressed to the knockout stages, as things stand they will have a tough time to change that in this World Cup.
