a. Poland: The Polish lock horns with Argentina next and the winner of the game books a spot into the Round of 16.

c. Saudi Arabia: The Green Eagles have 3 points from 2 matches, and a win with a high goal difference can propel them forward to the next round. They face Mexico next.

d. Mexico: One point in the bag, and one more loss will mean Mexico can pack their bags and go home.

Group D

Group D is one of those rare groups at the FIFA World Cup 2022, which has one spot taken already, and one is up for grabs.

France 2 2 0 0 6 2 4 6
Australia 2 1 0 1 2 4 -2 3
Denmark 2 0 1 1 1 2 -1 1

b. Australia: Australia did well against Tunisia with 1-0 win and will require another win over Denmark to seal a Round of 16 berth.

c. Denmark: After losing 2-1 to France, Denmark has to beat Australia to have any chance of making it to the knockouts. A loss will knock them out of the World Cup.

d. Tunisia: For starters, they need to beat France with a big margin. Second they will need Australia-Denmark match to end in a draw to move into the knockouts.

Group E

This group is completely open, with a couple of matches scheduled later in the day. Spain has a huge lead, but anything can happen over the course of next one week.

Team Matches Wins Draws Losses GF GA GD Points
Spain 1 1 0 0 7 0 7 3
Japan 1 0 0 0 2 0 1 3
Germany 1 0 0 1 1 2 -1 0
Costa Rica 1 0 0 1 0 7 7 0

a. Spain: Spain slammed 7 goals against Costa Rica, and that could be a massive difference in the end. Spain faces Germany next and also has a game against Japan. If they manage two wins, Spain will be the table toppers. However, one win should also be good enough to taken them to the Round of 16.

b. Japan: The Asian team has Costa Rica and Spain on their schedule, and at least one win should be good to help them sail into the semis.

c. Germany: 4-time champions are in a spot of bother after loss to Japan. For them, the equation is pretty simple – win their last matches against Spain and Costa Rica.

d. Costa Rica: Unless Costa Rica wins their last two matches against Germany and Japan, they can bid their World Cup campaign goodbye.

Group F

This group is an open ended one, with all the four teams – Belgium, Croatia, Morocco and Canada alive in the race to the knockouts.

Team Matches Wins Draws Losses GF GA GD Points
Belgium 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 3
Croatia 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
Morocco 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
Canada 1 0 0 1 0 1 -1 0

a. Belgium: With one win against Canada in their kitty, Belgium faces Croatia and Morocco and looks the strongest contender to make it to the Round of 16.

b. Croatia: The drawn game against Morocco came as a surprise for their fans, but Croatia can well and truly make up, if they beat Belgium and Canada in their next two scheduled encounters.

c. Morocco: Morocco, like Croatia, has two games in their bag against Belgium and Canada. Two wins should get them through to Round of 16, but even a single loss can hamper their chances.

d. Canada: With a loss to Belgium, Canada now has to win against Croatia and Morocco to stay alive in the competition.

c. Cameroon: They are not in a position to lose even one more match, after losing to Switzerland in their opening encounter. One more loss and Cameroon is out of the tournament.

d. Serbia: Their situation is similar to Cameroon. Have games against Switzerland and Cameroon next, which are do-or-die battles for Serbia.

Group H

With a minimum of two matches pending for each side in Group H, this is an open group, with Portugal leading at the moment. However, one can expect upsets in the coming days.

Uruguay 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
Korea Republic 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
Ghana 1 0 0 1 2 3 -1 0

a. Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo led unit experienced a close contest against Ghana and won the contest 3-2. Moving forward they meet Uruguay and Korea Republic next. They need to win at least one game, to make it to the final 16.

b. Uruguay: The former champions had a drawn match against Korea Republic, which means they have a point on the board. They have their destiny in their own hands, and need to beat Portugal and Ghana to advance into the knockouts.

c. Korea Republic: Their situation is similar to Uruguay. Have two matches left, against Portugal and Ghana and need to win both the games to have any chance of making it to the final 16.

d. Ghana: The weakest team in the group has already suffered a loss to Portugal in the tournament. Ghana has to beat Uruguay and Korea Republic to stand any chance of moving into the knockouts.

The tournament is already in its second week. Already, the FIFA World Cup 2022 has experienced expected results, upsets, and shocking draw results. Going into the business end of the tournament, all 32 teams will be looking to give their all and advance to the next stage. One more slip-up, and given the nature of the tournament, it should be good enough to shut the door on the losers in the coming days.
