Ronaldo and his teammates will join Ghana, Uruguay, and South Korea in the group stage after the April 1 draw in Doha, Qatar.

On the other hand, Nigeria has lost and qualified African powerhouse Ghana. South Korea, on the other hand, will want to destabilize their amulet striker, the big football heavyweights, just as South Korea lost to Germany in Russia-2018.

World Cup Group H Draw

PORTUGAL

As expected, Portugal qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar through the play-offs. They beat Northern Macedonia to reach the final for the eighth time. They haven’t won it yet, despite being regular contestants on this stage.

This will be Cristiano Ronaldo’s final appearance at the World Cup. All eyes will be on the 37-year-old amulet, and he will be a key player in Qatar. Already desperate to add the first team world crown to his torn trophy cabinet. Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes will be important for Euro 2016 winners.

Portugal have been the most defensive side in all of their offensive talents. However, they have managed to score six goals in their last 10 games in all competitions.

GHANA

Ghana will appear in the qualifying round for the first time since 2014 after beating Nigeria and securing a place in the tournament. The team came very close to the semifinals of the 2010 World Cup. Uruguay lost the last eight on penalties. Despite the fact that the current squad does not have many family names compared to the 2010 and 2014 editions, players like Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey and young Ajax genius Cudus will have to keep an eye on them as they approach the tournament.

These two qualities of determination and perseverance have been instilled in the fabric of this team. In 2021 they lost just two of their ten matches, but a weak Africa Cup of Nations campaign where they were knocked out of the group without a win. This means they have a point to prove in the first place.

URUGUAY

Uruguay reached the last eight of the 2018 World Cup. The final winner was France. South Americans continue to develop players who are capable of unique intelligence, and that is no different in Qatar. Edison Cavani and Striker Luis could be at the end of their careers. They are both 35 years old, but still, they can create big threats in front of the target.

Uruguay’s squad Although talented, 2021 was an inconsistent year for those who missed out on the Copa America quarter-finals with high hopes. 2022 has been positive for Uruguay so far, with four wins in a row, including a 2-0 win over China at the end. Through this, their morale has increased a lot. Their concerns remain over their squad’s ability to compete against the top and strongest opponents.

SOUTH KOREA

South Korea will continue to have failed to qualify for the World Cup since 1998, and Paulo Bento’s side will compete in Qatar.

South Korea finished second in a tough third-round qualifying group. The team secured a place in the final only after losing the final. Paulo Bento’s side have won seven matches before, and they would expect the same pace before the World Cup. For the first time since 2010, they will be out of the group stage.

Son Hyung-min is South Korea’s most recognized difference-maker, Tottenham forward club, and a great scorer for the country. The wolf Huang He-chan is also an important figure for the Asian Tigers. South Korea’s best World Cup performance saw them reach the semifinals on home soil in 2002.
