There are a number of fascinating matchups in the World Cup 2022 groupings.
Unlike other years, there is no distinct ‘group of death.’ In general, there is one group of three or four teams that has a potential to make a deep run in the tournament.
Argentina, Croatia, Iceland, and Nigeria competed in Group D in 2018. Italy, England, Uruguay, and Costa Rica were in a tight competition to get out of the group four years ago.
The World Cup 2022 groups are well-balanced. As a result, each game will be crucial, as only the top two teams will advance after the three-game round-robin stage.
Groups for the 2022 World Cup
The World Cup groups in Qatar are nearly complete. Three teams have yet to qualify for the World Cup. Ukraine, Scotland, and Wales will compete in a UEFA World Cup qualifying playoff for a spot in Group B. There are two intercontinental playoffs after that. Peru will face the winner of the group stage between Australia and the United Arab Emirates. Finally, Costa Rica and New Zealand battle it out for a place in Group E.

If there is one group to watch, it is Group F. Belgium and Croatia are both formidable opponents. Belgium finished third four years ago, with Croatia coming in second. Canada won the CONCACAF Game Cup Qualifying tournament and boasts Alphonso Davies, one of the most promising players in the world.
