Ghana

Ghana’s journey to the World Cup began in group G qualifiers, where they just edged South Africa on goals scored, with both teams finishing on 13 points. This earned them a spot in a World Cup play-off where they overcame rivals Nigeria on away goals, following a goalless draw in the first leg and a 1-1 draw in the second.

Ghanian manager Otto Addo will be hoping that his side can cause an upset in Group H and replicate their famous 2010 World cup run which saw them crash out in the quarter-final on penalties to Uruguay. The controversial ending to the game saw Luis Suarez receive a red card in the 120th minute for a handball which stopped a guaranteed goal, Ghana were awarded a penalty but Asamoah Gyan was unable to convert from the spot.

Addo will need Key players such as Arsenal’s Thomas Partey and Mohammed Kudus from Ajax to perform like they have at club level this season, in order to make it out the tough group H. Ghana now also have additional firepower, with Inaki Williams (from Spanish outfit Athletic Club) recently changing his nationality ahead of the World Cup.

Ghana are currently 3/1 to make it out of the Group and there is no doubt that they will be looking for revenge against Uruguay in round 3.

Portugal

Portugal Manager Fernando Santos knows how to win international trophies with his side, winning Euro 2016 and the 2019 Nations League. The 68-year-old will be looking to complete a hat trick of international trophies in Qatar.

Portugal finished second in their qualifying group behind surprise package Serbia. This meant that they had to compete in playoffs against Turkey and North Macedonia, who they beat convincingly.

This will be Cristiano Ronaldo’s last World Cup, the only major competition he hasn’t won in his illustrious career. Arguably the best player of all time will look to put his below-standard performances at club level behind him and captain his side to glory.

Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva and Joao Cancelo are just a few Premier League players representing Portugal this winter, however, they will be without Liverpool star Diogo Jota due to Injury.

A third-place finish in the 1966 world cup still remains their best finish, however, they will go into the tournament with the objective of lifting the trophy. They are currently priced at 14/1 to do so with Cristiano Ronaldo 16/1 to win the Golden Boot.

South Korea

South Korea qualified for the 2022 World Cup, finishing second in their qualifying group behind Iran. They conceded three goals in ten qualifying games and only lost once.

South Korea is a defensively sound side with Min-Jae Kim adding a composed yet aggressive approach. He has been unbelievable for Napoli this season, helping them sit at the top of the Serie A table.

Captain and star Heung Min Son was a major doubt for the World cup following a fractured eye socket in a recent UEFA Champions League tie. Fortunately, ex-Portuguese international and current South Korea manager Paulo Bento has confirmed he will be in the squad.

In the 2002 World Cup, South Korea made it to the Semi-Finals, beating European giants such as Portugal, Italy, and Spain along the way. They were ultimately knocked out after a 1-0 defeat to Germany.

South Korea are currently 9/4 to make it out of group H.

Uruguay

Uruguay qualified for the World cup after finishing in 3rd place behind World Cup favourites Brazil and Argentina. They struggled during the qualification phase and a 3-0 loss to Bolivia led to long-term manager Oscar Tabarez being sacked. He was replaced by Diego Alonso, the former manager of Inter Miami.

Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez, and Darwin Nunez provide an attacking threat but their key player is Federico Valverde of Real Madrid.

Uruguay have won the World Cup twice, in 1930 and 1950. Since then, their best finish came in the 2010 World Cup, finishing in 4th place.

Uruguay are currently 1/2 to make it to the knockout stages, 2/1 to win Group H, and 50/1 to win the entire tournament.
