SBI World Cup Preview Group H: Portugal leads pack with Uruguay closely behind

Portugal’s quest to earn Cristiano Ronaldo his first-ever World Cup trophy continues in Qatar with the European squad sitting as favorites in Group H.

Portugal will rely on Ronaldo’s star-studded abilities in the final third, but are also strong in several other key areas. Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo are just three of the talented Premier League players on Portugal’s roster while Pepe remains a veteran voice in the backline.

Uruguay possesses one of the top attacking units in the World Cup with veterans Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani fighting off Darwin Nunez and Maxi Gomez for opportunities. There will also be leadership in defense and between the posts with Diego Godin and Fernando Muslera returning for another go at a title.

South Korea and Ghana will be fighting to pull any sort of upset in Group H, but will also aim to knock one off another. Tottenham star Son Heung-Min is the main man for South Korea’s attack while Ghana has Inaki Williams to lead the way.
