World Cup 2022: Portugal on their way to first place –

In Group H, the only certain thing is Portugal’s qualification. It is a three-way battle between Ghana, South Korea and Uruguay for the last place that allows access to the round of 16 of the World Cup.

With 3 points, Ghana – who played two of the most beautiful matches in the competition against Portugal (3-2) and South Korea (3-2 win) – is in a favorable match: if they beat Uruguay (one point) on Friday. She will retain her qualifications.

On the other hand, if the Black Stars tie against Celeste, they will qualify if the Koreans lose (1 point) or tie. Conversely, if South Korea beats Portugal, qualification will be decided on goal difference (0 for Ghana, -1 for South Korea). If Ghana loses, Uruguay, which has not yet opened the gate, will overtake it in the standings.

La Céleste would then be left with 4 points and their qualification would depend on the result of South Korea: a draw or defeat for the Koreans would qualify them; If Korea wins, both teams will be at 4 points and goal difference (-1 for Korea and -2 for Uruguay) will decide.

Who ranks first in the group?

This is another challenge at the end of the group, to decide who will finish on top and will avoid Brazil beforehand, on their way to exiting top of their group, in the round of 16.

Portugal are the best with 6 points and only need a draw to secure top spot. To finish top, Ghana must win and count on defeating Portugal by regaining their unfavorable goal difference (Portugal at +3, Ghana at 0).
