Unfortunately for the host fans, our experts don’t think that they will make it to the next round. The expert panel has chosen the Dutch side as well as the AFCON champions to advance to the next round. A few of the panel members even indicated for Senegal to be the group topper.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Group B:

Grup B represents hot favorite England along with Iran and USA. However, the 4th place is still up for grabs. UEFA Play-Off winner between Wales, Scotland, and Ukraine will join the other 3.

B2 Iran AFC Will Be Eliminated 4th
B3 USA CONCACAF Will Be Eliminated 3rd
B4 UEFA Play-Off Winner (Wales / Scotland / Ukraine) UEFA Will Qualify Group Runners-Up

England shouldn’t face serious problems to top Group B with the firepower they have in their squad. UEFA Play-Off winning side is expected to get the better of the USA to reach RO16 but this game will be the probable decider of the runners-up (2nd spot) of Group B.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Group C:

Group C has Leo Messi’s Argentina along with Lewandowski’s Poland. Mexico will be another hot cake side of this group while Saudi Arabia occupies the other spot.

C3 Mexico CONCACAF Will Qualify Group Runners-Up
C4 Poland UEFA Will Be Eliminated 3rd

Copa America champions may face tough tests against Mexico and Poland but should end up as the group winners. The fixture between Mexico and Poland should be the one that would decide the 2nd spot.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D:

World Champion France has got Euro semifinalist Denmark and African side Tunisia in Group D. However, another spot is still vacant as either Peru, Australia, or UAE will have their seat booked in June.

Defending champions are expected to top this group easily. Denmark showed (in Euro) what they are capable of and should advance as Group D’s runners-up side.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Group E:

2010 winners Spain has been drawn with 2014 edition’s champions Germany in Group E making it the group to watch. Japan is also there waiting for the winner between Costa Rica and New Zealand to join them.

E4 Japan AFC Will Be Eliminated 3rd

There will be a serious battle for the group topper spot in Group E. Germany and Spain will have to fight their skins out not only for the champion spot but also for prestige. In the end, our analysts have put their money on Germany with Luis Enrique’s side following them as the group runners-up.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Group F:

Group F features 2 out of the 4 semifinalists of the Russia WC in Belgium and finalist Croatia. Canada who is playing a FIFA WC finals after 36 years will be there along with CAF side Morocco.

F2 Canada CONCACAF Will Be Eliminated 4th
F3 Morocco CAF Will Be Eliminated 3rd
F4 Croatia UEFA Will Qualify Group Runners-Up

Croatia had their best-ever run in Russia but the Belgium side looks stronger on pen and paper. Considering the Red Devils’ group stage form in recent mega-events they should finish as the topper with the Croats staying just beneath them. And yes, don’t take Morocco for granted.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Group G:

5 times champions Brazil has 2 European giant-killers in Serbia and Switzerland in Group G. The final side of this group is Cameroon.

G1 Brazil CONMEBOL Will Qualify Group Champion
G2 Serbia UEFA Will Be Eliminated 3rd
G3 Switzerland UEFA Will Qualify Group Runners-Up
G4 Cameroon CAF Will Be Eliminated 4th

Brazil will march toward Qatar with one of the most balanced squads in the tournament. Serbia and Switzerland, both of these sides can down-under any giant. Whatever there should be a battle between the 2 European nations for the 2nd spot with Brazil comfortably finishing at the top.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Group H:

Cristiano Ronaldo will be in Qatar with his Portugal team competing in Group H which features Uruguay, Ghana, and South Korea.

Draw Berth Team/Country Confederation Probable Qualification Status Probable Rank at the End of Group Stage
H1 Portugal UEFA Will Qualify Group Champion
H2 Ghana CAF Will Be Eliminated 4th
H3 Uruguay CONMEBOL Will Qualify Group Runners-Up
H4 Korea Republic AFC Will Be Eliminated 3rd

Yes, Portugal had to struggle a lot to reach Qatar but they are still one of the strongest soccer side nations at the moment. CR7 lovers would see their favorite side topping the group and so do our panel. Uruguay knocked Portugal out in Russia but is our 2nd pick to advance from this group. Oh, don’t forget South Korea defeated the mighty Germans in 2018. If somebody gives them a chance, they will use the full toll of it.

We Hope, this FIFA World Cup 2022 Groups Analysis has summed up each group’s probable scenario at the end of the group stage.
