The draw for the World Cup took place few months ago in Doha. And obviously, some matches will be tough in this beginning of the competition.
Placed in the same group, Spain and Germany face each other in what will be the toughest shock match of the group stage.
It is fair to say that no match in the World Cup is ever dull, but below are the top 5 toughest matches in the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
1. Argentina vs Mexico (Group C)
Mexico come into the FIFA World Cup 2022 with a pretty well-balanced unit. Though their side does not possess too many familiar names, players like Hirving Lozano and Raul Jimenez have the capability to turn a game on its head.
Lionel Messi and his teammates are one of the favourites to lift the title, but the Mexicans will pose quite a tough challenge. The encounter might not look that exciting on-paper, but is sure to be a cracker of a game at the FIFA World Cup 2022.
2. Senegal vs Netherlands (Group A)
Host country Qatar was to open its World Cup. To everyone’s surprise, this meeting between Senegal and the Netherlands will be the first of this 2022 World Cup.
Beyond being the opening match of this competition, this match is very important between the two favorites of Group A. And a success would offer one of the two nations the possibility of seriously considering the first place of this group.
3. England vs USA (Group B)
Like France, England do not yet know their fourth opponent. A qualification from Scotland or Wales would offer a British confrontation. One thing is certain, we will have a 100% English shock with this match between England and the United States.
If the Three Lions will start as favorites, this group will have a special flavor at the start of the World Cup. Perhaps Christian Pulisic and his compatriots could create the surprise.
4. France vs Denmark (Group D)
Denmark again for the France team! After 1998, 2002 and 2018, the two nations will meet for the fourth time in the group of a World Cup.
As part of the League of Nations, the Blues will challenge Denmark twice before the start of this World Cup in Qatar. And this match will be a real test for the men of Didier Deschamps.
Semi-finalists of the last Euro, the Danes seduced by their game and could cause real problems for this team of France.
5. Spain vs Germany (Group E)
Certainly, the biggest match of this first round. Two former World Cup winners, stars in the game and candidates for the final victory. Difficult to do better in this beginning of the World Cup.
This meeting will be decisive in the race for first place. This match between La Roja and Maanschaft is full of promise and will be unmissable for football fans.
