African giants will try to bounce back after failing to reach the competition in 2018
Cameroon missed out on the last World Cup in Russia and will want to bounce back. Cameroon won their Group D overcoming the mighty Ivory Coast. They then faced Algeria where they lost at home in the first game. They then bounced back to win in added time of extra time to secure their 8th appearance in the World Cup. Cameroon will be hoping to emulate their success of 1990 where they reached the quarter finals. They have a number of players who play in Europe like Aboubakar, Anguissa, Toko-Ekambi and the might Onana. The Africans may not be favorites to come out of their group but in football anything is possible. Cameroon may not have won the AFCON but they made the semifinals and came in third place.
Serbia has potential to be a WC dark horse
Serbia will be making their 13th appearance in the World Cup. They will be making their second consecutive appearance after competing in Russia where they came in 3rd place. Serbia came in 4th place in 1930 and 1962 and they have potential to be a dark horse of the World Cup. The Serbs will have Vlahovic, Milinkovic-Savic, Mitrovic, Tadic and Jovic and will be relying on these players heavily to take them to the knockout stages. Serbia topped their World Cup qualifying group without losing a single game recording six wins and two draws. They also scored an outstanding 18 goals whilst conceding 9. Serbia faces competition mainly with Switzerland to see who will make it out of the group. The last time Switzerland got the better of Serbia by two points in what was an extremely close group.
The Swiss to try and reach the knockout stages yet again
Switzerland head into this World Cup in great confidence over what they have achieved in 2021. The Swiss beat Italy the Euro champions to top their qualifying group. They recorded 5 wins and 3 draws in the qualifying round which saw them unbeaten. Switzerland may not be favorites to go far but they sure do have a team that can beat any big team on any day. They beat Spain in 2010 and they also managed to beat France on penalties 5-4 in the Euros. Yann Sommer pulled off an amazing save to deny Mbappe and send Switzerland into the quarter finals. Even against Spain in the Euros they still took the game to penalties despite losing. Then the last international break they beat Portugal and even Spain 2-1 at their home.
