Belgium can’t say that they are the best team in the world anymore because Brazil recently moved ahead of them in the FIFA rankings. However, they still have some key players from their “golden generation” and are expected to do well in Qatar.

But coach Roberto Martinez has to hope that this will finally be the time when the Red Devils live up to what was expected of them before the tournament and win something. With players like Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City and Romelu Lukaku of Inter, they might be hard to stop.

Belgium lost in the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup and in the quarterfinals of Euro 2020. They have a good chance of going far again this time, but they will need to stay calmer when things get tough.

Many people were surprised when Croatia made it to the final of the 2018 World Cup, where they lost to France. However, they didn’t do as well at Euro 2020, where they were knocked out in the Round of 16.

Even though he is getting older, Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modrić is still the best player on the team and the talisman. The 37-year-old will want to do well in what will probably be his last World Cup.

Croatia breezed through qualifying and only lost once, in their first game in Slovenia. Even though they hope to get out of the group stage, it’s hard to see Zlatko Dalic’s team going far in the tournament again.

Morocco is thought to have one of the best teams on the African continent. They will have a lot of stars at Qatar 2022, which will be their sixth time at the finals.

A lot will depend on Paris Saint-Germain fullback Achraf Hakimi, but players like Sofaine Boufal, who used to play for Southampton in the Premier League, and Ayoub Al Kaabi, who plays for Hatayspor in the Turkish Süper Lig and is their most dangerous goal threat, should help him out.

Morocco made it to the quarterfinals of the Africa Cup of Nations this year, but Egypt beat them and went on to win the tournament. Morocco could be a surprise contender to make it to the final stages.

Canada is going to the World Cup for the first time in 36 years. This is because they had a great qualifying season that got them to the top spot in the CONCACAF standings.

When they beat Jamaica 4-0 in Toronto in late March, it was an emotional moment for both the players and the fans. Star player Alphonso Davies broke down in tears on his Twitch stream as he watched his teammates finish the job.

Davies missed that game because he had myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart, after getting COVID-19. For Canada to have a chance of moving on, Bayern Munich will need to be at its best. Coach John Herdman wants to be the first person to lead a team at both the women’s and men’s World Cups.

  • Regional ranking: 4th (CONCACAF)

We are predicting that Belgium and Croatia will advance to the next round in this group.
