Uruguay v South Korea (2pm)
Since the 2010 World Cup, when Uruguay finished third, the team has always reached the knockout stages. Uruguay meets South Korea in the first game of Group H on Thursday. In Qatar, a mature guard led by Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani will be making their last World Cup appearance after a difficult qualifier. Defender Ronald Araujo from FC Barcelona is fit in time for the start of the World Cup after tearing an adductor muscle and a long injury break.
In 2018, South Korea sealed the embarrassing defeat of the then world champion Germany with a 2-0 win. However, the prestige success was not enough to advance. In any case, the two-time Asian champions in ten World Cup participations only made it past the preliminary round at the home World Cup in 2002 (fourth place) and 2010 (round of 16). The omens aren’t the best this time either, especially as superstar Heung-Min Son sustained a facial fracture ahead of the tournament. But the former hamburger can play with a mask.

Portugal’s start to the World Cup will also be Cristiano Ronaldo’s first application for a new job. Two days before the game, Manchester United and the superstar, who can now openly plan his future, parted ways. While the 37-year-old was often just a substitute at his club, he is undisputed in the national team. The title at his last World Cup would not be the worst application. In Group H, Portugal meets Ghana.
Ghana’s hopes rest on Otto Addo’s tactical flair. Born in Hamburg, he took charge of the national team in February after a poor showing at the Africa Cup of Nations and led them to the World Cup by beating rivals Nigeria in the playoffs. However, Addo’s time as Ghana coach is limited – the 47-year-old is still employed by BVB and will return there after the tournament.

Brazil – Serbia (8 p.m.)
The dream of a sixth World Cup title is omnipresent in Brazil – it should finally work out in Qatar. In Group G, Brazil meets Serbia. And the chances are good. No other team has such a top-class attacking team as the Seleção: whether Neymar, Vinicius Júnior, Raphinha or Antony – the Brazilian squad is brimming with quality. The only question will be how well all of this comes together in the first game. The Serbs are considered an uncomfortable opponent due to their robustness. Despite all ball artists, the main thing will be to counteract them.

The Serbs have participated in a World Cup finals three times in the past 16 years – and three times they were eliminated after the preliminary round in 2006, 2010 and 2018. The hope for improvement has two main reasons: The Serbian offensive is very strong with players like Dusan Vlahovic, ex-Frankfurt Filip Kostić (both Juventus Turin) and Dušan Tadić (Ajax Amsterdam). And coach Dragan Stojković is an idol in his home country, who the players look up to and who lets them play very offensively in line with their potential.

After a free-kick from Reece James, the Brazilian manhandled the ball over the Dortmund goal line. The committed Brandt drives the ball centrally through midfield and finds Sébastien Haller in the sixteen. After losing the ball, Félix switched quickly, got the ball back from Hakim Ziyech and narrowly missed from around ten meters. Again, after a quick transition, Félix was suddenly free in front of Gregor Kobel, but ultimately failed on the crossbar. Only a fantastic save by the strong Emre Can on his own goal line prevented the equalizer, which was not undeserved at the time.1 month ago California18
