32 nations that qualified for the FIFA World Cup 2022 are drawn into eight groups, and here is the group-by-group breakdown.
Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland, and Cameroon
Group G is one of the hardest groups to predict who will advance to the next round of the World Cup. Brazil is currently the No. 1 ranked team in the world by FIFA world rating, and shouldn't have any problems finishing at top of the group. Things get a little trickier when it comes to second place, all three remaining teams are closely matched, and every lost point will have great importance. Two teams that advance to the next round cross path with Group H.
BRAZIL: Brazil is the most successful team in the history of the World Cup, they have won it five times. Their last win was 20 years ago, back in 2002 when the World Cup was held in South Korea and Japan. Two decades and five tournaments later they will be chasing their sixth title. By many experts, Brazil is considered as biggest favorite to win the World Cup 2022. Since 2016 their coach is Tite. Brazil has many great players to choose from including Neymar and Marquinhos from PSG, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, Casemiro, and Eder Militao from Real Madrid, and the two best Premier League goalkeepers Alisson from Liverpool and Ederson from Manchester City just to name the few.
SERBIA: Serbia qualified for the World Cup 2022 impressively, as UEFA Group A winners. That was a big surprise, as Portugal was a big favorite to win the group. Serbia shocked Portugal with a late goal by Aleksandar Mitrovic in the 90-th minute to secure a 2-1 win that sent Portugal to the playoffs and Serbia directly to the World Cup. This will be Serbia's second World Cup appearance as an independent country. Since last year, Dragan Stojkovic is the coach of Serbia. He has some very good international players at his disposal. The biggest star is Dusan Vlahovic from Juventus, followed by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio. Other great players are Dusan Tadic from Ajax, Aleksandar Mitrovic from Fulham, and Nikola Milenkovic from Fiorentina.
SWITZERLAND: Similar to Serbia, Switzerland shocked Italy and qualified for the World Cup 2022 as UEFA Group C winners, sending Italy to playoffs where Azzuri lost to Northern Macedonia. They only conceded two goals and went undefeated through qualification by playing strong defensive football which makes them hard to beat. Their coach is Murat Yakin. Switzerland's best player is Xerdan Shaqiri, a former Liverpool player who now earns his pay in the USA playing for Chicago Fire. Other good players are Breel Embolo from Borussia Monchengladbach, Granit Xhaka from Arsenal, Manuel Akanji from Borussia Dortmund and experienced goalkeeper Yann Sommer from Borussia Monchengladbach.
CAMEROON: This will be their eighth World Cup appearance, after qualifying for the World Cup 2022 via play-off win against Algeria. Former Liverpool player Rigobert Song is Cameroon's coach. Following a third-place finish at the last Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon is going to the World Cup with high hopes. Experienced striker Vincent Aboubakar was the best scorer at the last Africa Cup of Nations with eight goals. His partner in attack most likely will be Karl Toko Ekambi from Lyon. In midfield, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa from Napoli stands out, and they have a strong goalkeeper in Andre Onana who signed for Inter this summer.
