Sorare World Cup Special - Part 2

Updated: Sep 5, 2022

We continue our journey with the Qatar World Cup overview with the next two groups. Two big contenders for the World Cup, are Argentina, and France. Both will be looking to win their group to avoid a possible clash in the knock-out phase. Although a Mbappé (PSG) vs Messi (PSG) in the knock-out phase would be interesting, to say the least.

If you are looking to form your SO5 for the Qatar World Cup, this might be an ideal time. Media coverage is fairly limited, the hype is still building. What tactic to use for assembling a squad is totally up to you. But beware, if you are unlucky, your player could only play three group matches and go back home which might not be worth the investment.

If you want a fun and light read or if you are still in the market for a goalkeeper, we did the research so you don't have to, let this summary help you.

The Qatar 2022 World Cup countdown!

 

The Group stage:

Group C: Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Poland.

Poland had to go through the play-offs to secure their spot in this World Cup, eliminating Sweden. Make a note in your schedule for 30th November. Lewandowski (Barcelona) vs Messi (PSG), the final group stage game. A game on the edge for Poland to go through the knock-out phase, as the second spot will be between them and Mexico. They have talent and experience under the crossbar with Wojciech Szczęsny (Juventus). Mexico doesn’t score or concede many goals — averaging just over one goal a game scored in their qualification, and they will hope that a compact game plan can prove sufficient to restrain group opponents. Guillermo Ochoa (América) played during the qualifiers and will probably play in the tournament, yet there are some rumors about a new goalkeeper. And it isn't a name you might suspect. Coach Jorge Campos is a huge fan of David Ochoa (DC United) and might add him to the roster, passing second goalkeeper Acevedo (Santos Laguna).

What will Messi (PSG) have in store for us in his, probably, final World Cup? The GOAT is turning 35 and it might be his last chance to add a World Cup Trophy to his immense list. Messi won't have to do it alone as there is a lot of talent in the team. Let's sum up of few names: Tagliafico (Lyon), Di Maria (Juventus), Lo Celso (Villareal), top talent Julien Alvarez (Man City), and many others. A lot of talent in goal as well, they've been playing with a few different keepers: Armani (River Plate), Rulli (Villareal), Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa). Argentina is one of the biggest favorites to win the cup this year.

Saudi Arabia, one of the lowest-ranked sides in the tournament, isn’t the strongest and will struggle to match some of their more illustrious group rivals. Their goalkeeper, Mohammed Al-Owais (Al Hilal) won't be "keeping" them in the game. Our prediction: David: 1. Argentina, 2. Mexico, 3. Poland, 4. Saudi Arabia Tom: 1. Argentina, 2. Poland, 3. Mexico, 4. Saudi Arabia

Group D: France, Australia, Denmark, Tunisia.
