Brazil’s star-studded squad headlines a tough Group G, but Serbia and Switzerland are two European sides aiming to make noise in Qatar.
A Seleção heads into Qatar as one of the key favorites to lift the tournament trophy, especially with Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar leading the way. Neymar is joined by in-form talents Bruno Guimarares, Antony, and Casemiro, giving Brazil plenty of skill and experience up and down the roster.
Serbia’s attack is led by Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic and Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic, two of their productive forwards in Europe over the past two seasons. Dusan Tadic is one of the more experienced midfielders in this group and will be hoping to set up his teammates in a few victories.
Switzerland’s veteran leadership will try and help them achieve a deep run in Qatar. The Swiss have several key players returning for the World Cup, including Chicago Fire midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri, Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, and Borussia Moenchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer.
Cameroon returns to the World Cup after missing the 2018 edition and will rely on striker Vincent Aboubakar to spark its attack. Aboubakar is one of three Cameroonian players that have double-digit goals for their country and leads by a large margin over the others.
