All About Group G Schedule


Neymar is having an exceptional season at Paris Saint-Germain. The 30-year-old is expected by his fans to lead Brazil to a record sixth World Cup title and emerge as the star of the tournament. Serbia or Switzerland are likely to progress to the next round from this group. Serbia’s Aleksandar Mitrovic and Dusan Vlahovic are in red-hot form and will hold them in good stead.

Granit Xhaka-led Switzerland are known to punch above their weight. They reached the round of 16 in the previous World Cup and the quarterfinals of Euro 2020. Switzerland will again rely heavily on Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri.

It will be interesting to see if Cameroon is the dark horse of this group. They certainly have the ability to pull off an upset or two.
