Portugal has a good chance of finishing top of the group, although they will have to overcome a Uruguay National Team with stars such as Fede Valverde (Real Madrid), Araújo (FC Barcelona) or Darwin Núñez (Liverpool) In addition to veterans and fighters Luís Suárez (Nacional) or Edison Cavani (Valencia FC). Both Ghana and South Korea seem to be several levels below these teams but anything can happen in the World Championship.
The teams advancing to the final stage will play the top two teams from group G. This group is composed of Brazil, Cameroon, Serbia and Switzerland.
In order to avoid Brazil in the Round of 16, who appear to have no difficulty in topping their group, it will be vital to finish top of the standings.
