In this article, we have discussed Switzerland’s FIFA Worldcup Fixture, when the matches will be and where the match will be.
The Swiss journey ended in the Round of 16 in both of the previous two editions of the FIFA World Cup. Argentina knocked them out in 2014 and Sweden in 2018. Switzerland has qualified for the FIFA World Cup 2022 directly from the UEFA region ahead of Italy. Let’s take a quick look at Switzerland’s World Cup 2022 fixtures, match schedules, venues, and groups.
Switzerland World Cup 2022 Group
Switzerland will play in Group G against familiar foes Brazil, Serbia, and Cameroon. The Swiss were drawn in the same group as Brazil and Serbia in the 2018 World Cup. Brazil and Switzerland made it to the next round.
Top two teams will qualify for the Round of 16 from each group, group winners and runners-up. Every team will play 3 matches in the Group Stage, a match with every opponent. A win earns 3 points, 1 point for a draw, and no points for a defeat.
The stage is set. We now know the final 32 teams that are heading to #Qatar2022. 🤩
