FIFA World Cup Group A
In Group A, We of Course Have the Host Qatar the Netherlands Ecuador, and the African Champion Senegal.
Let’s Start With the Hosts Qatar Come Into This as the Champions of the 2019 Asian Cup Where They Won on Their Home Soil and Were Then Invited to the 2021 Gold Cup as Well Playing in a Group Against Honduras Panama and Grenada.
They Finished First They Beat El Salvador 3-2 in the Quarterfinals and Then Lost to the Eventual Champions the United States One Nil in the Semi-Final of the Gold Cup.
Their Catalan Head Coach Félix Sánchez Has Been in Charge of Qatar Since 2017 and Won the Asian Cup in 2019 Can’t Be Overlooked.
Almoez Ali Was on Fire in That Tournament With Nine Goals Finishing His Top Score and He Also Finished His Top Score in the 2021 Gold Cup as well.
Qatar, of course, Didn’t Have a Qualifying Campaign That We Can Judge Them on but as the Hosts of the Football Tournament, You Can Expect Them to Be Pretty Tough.
Qatar Has Played Six Friendlies in 2022 Winning Against Bulgaria and Guatemala Drawing Against Chile Jamaica and Slovenia and Losing Nil to Canada.
Félix Sánchez Typically Plays With a Back Five Formation Against Tougher Opposition but Will Get Little More Adventurous With an Attacking 3-5-2 Formation Now and Then Now.
Fun Fact for Qatar, They Have Lost 10 Straight Matches Against the Top 40 Opponents Scoring Twice and Conceding 24. Only Ecuador Falls Outside That, Top 40 From This Group Well and Qatar.
Kings of the Continent of Africa and Boasting a Team That is Happy to Absolutely Grind It Out With Their Opponents if They Have to as They Did Twice Against Egypt Once in the Final of the African Cup of Nations Eventually Beating Them in a Shootout and
Once Again in the African Qualifying Playoffs Once Again Beating Them in a Shootout You Know the Laser Wars Game That One.
The Lions of Tauranga Are Coached by Former Player Aliou Cissé and He Typically Plays Them in a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 if He Wants to Get a Little Extra Cover for That Back Line.
How About Some Personnel to Look Out for Senegal?
he Obvious, One of, Course is Sadio Mane a World-class Talent Now of Bayern Munich Who Unfortunately Has a Big Question Mark Over Whether He’ll Be Healthy for This World Cup After Sustaining a Knee Injury.
but You Can’t Forget About Guys Like Ismaila Sarr, a Very Tricky Boy on the Wing Bamba Dieng of Marseille Also in the Midfield You Can Look to Idrissa Gueye, Cheikhou Kouyaté.
Papa Gueye Who Has Been Getting Some Looks at Marseille and More Behind Them, of course, is Kalidou Koulibaly Hasn’t Played a Ton of Late at Chelsea but is Absolutely a Leader on This Team.
And Their Captain Abdou Diallo of Rb Leipzig Fodé Ballo-touré of Ac Milan and in Goal Expect Édouard Mendy to Start.
Really, a Solid Team That Has Plenty of Experience in High-Pressure Situations Lately as the Champions of Africa and Getting Through That Playoff Against Egypt
Fun Fact for Senegal, they Only Lost Two Matches in the Past Three Years and Only Argentina Has Lost Fewer in the Field of 32 Teams.
Ecuador Are a Side That is Carrying Some Nice Hype About Them Aren’t They Medium Hype I Should Say Not Being Hyped to Be Tournament Winners or Anything of That Sort of Level but Based Upon Their Qualification Campaign Which Saw Them Qualify Ahead of the Likes of Colombia Chile and Paraguay.
There’s a Reason to Believe in This Generation From Ecuador, for Those Who Follow the Premier League Moisés Caicedo Will Be the Most Familiar Name as He Has Excelled at Brighton.
Gustavo Alfaro’s Squad is Packed With Young Talent I Mean Looking at Their Projected Squad There Isn’t a Player Over the Age of 27 in the Midfield Their Oldest Defender is 29 Youth Has Been the Way Forward as well as a Solid Defensive Shape in Their 4-2-3-1 Formation.
Ecuador Had the Third Best Defense in Qualifying Behind Brazil and Argentina This is Their Fourth World Cup.
Fun Fact For Ecuador, they Had Five Consecutive Clean Sheets This is the Longest Streak Among All World Cup Teams Tied With Japan. However, No Team in the Field Has Had a Lower Percentage of Points Over the Past Three Years.
Finally, a Team Everyone Will Be Familiar With the Netherlands Round Out This Group as the Representative From Europe and They Will Be the Heavy Favorites to Top This Group A.
Under Louis van Gaal the Netherlands Have Started to Look Dominant Once Again They’ve Started to Live Up to Their Previous Reputation of Being an Incredibly Strong Side Euro 2020 Will Be a Sore Spot as Frank de Boer Stank It Up Against the Czech Republic in That Tournament Losing Two Nil.
They Recently Topped Their Nations in the Group Ahead of Belgium Poland and Wales Which is Not Had at All Not Lose a Single Match Along the Way and Averaged 2.33 Goals Per Game.
The Last Time Louis van Gaal Managed the Netherlands in the World Cup, He Led Them to Third in 2014.
and He Currently Has a 73 Win Rate Which is Massive He Likes to Play With Either a 3-4-1-2 or a 4-3-3 They Have a Great Talent and Defense With Players Like Virgil Van Dijk, Matthijs De Ligt, Nathan Aké.
They Have a Wealth of Talent in the Midfield as Well frenkie de jong, donny van de beek, Georginio Wijnaldum, and in the Attack Memphis Depay, Cody Gakpo, He’s Made a Lot of noise.
Recently the Netherlands Are Looking Just Great.
Fun Fact for the Netherlands, They Are Undefeated in 15 Matches Scoring 41 Goals in That Time Frame That’s the Second Longest Undefeated Streak Among All World Cup Teams Behind Only Argentina.
