WORLD CUP 2022
Qatar 2022 World Cup daily schedule; who plays today, November 24th
It’s Day 5 of the FIFA competition, and we’ve got some exciting games coming to you from around Qatar.
There were more surprises in this 2022 Qatar World Cup as a four-time tournament winner Germany was stunned by Japan in their debut game. The Germans went up after a penalty, but in the second half, the Japanese coach made some changes and entirely overran the Europeans, Flick had no options, had no response, and the World Cup of the surprises continued as the Nippon team won the game 1-2.
But with day 4 out of the way, we got a fantastic day 5; Cristiano makes his debut after his issues with Manchester United. PSG star Neymar JR also makes his debut for the Brazilian team. Last day of the first games of the group stage.
How and where to watch and follow the games
World Cup games today (all times ET)’
Group G: Switzerland vs Cameroon (5 a.m.)
Super even game. The Swiss have been doing great in international competitions lately. They knocked France out of the last Euro Cup, and they will want to keep that run going. The team will be led by team captain Granit Xhaka who has been fantastic for Arsenal this season and will want to keep his current form for his national team.
The African team comes in incognito mode but with a history behind them. Cameroon has always been a difficult team to beat, and they have found a way to compete at a high standard. Their biggest star will be Liverpool defender Joel Matip and striker Maxim Choupo-Moting.
Group H: Uruguay vs South Korea (8 a.m.)
This promises to be an exciting game with high intensity and many goal-scoring chances. The Charruas are a difficult team to play against. They will fight for every inch, for every ball, and run for 90 minutes straight. However, they know how to compete. They have too much experience in these competitions and a great young team led by a mix of veterans. Valverde, what a player, the best player in the Real Madrid squad at the moment. El Pajarito can change a game in a minute, and he will want to link up with Darwin Nuñez to make this happen.
The Asian team is not a team to be taken lightly. They got speed, they got heart, and above all, they are a super discipline team. So we can expect a similar game as the Japanese had with the Germans. Fast breaks that seek the space. Son Heung-min will be the Koreans’ best player, and the team will try to find and have him run behind a slow Uruguay defense.
Group H: Portugal vs Ghana Rica (11 a.m.)
All eyes are on Cristiano Ronaldo! The Portuguese player has had a tumultuous last couple of weeks due to his interview with Piers Morgan and his words about Manchester United, and as a result, the team and player cut all ties. So the star has no team at the moment, and this could be a way to showcase his forgotten talents. But let’s not forget that Portugal is also Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, and Joa Felix, probably one of the best teams by lineup in the competition.
The Africans will clinch to Thomas Parley and Iñaki Williams to make the dream happen. This team is long-ways from the 2010 quarter final’s team that lost against Uruguay in penalties. But this team, like Cameroon, knows how to compete in these tournaments and can cause multiple problems. Portugal will need to watch out for their speed.
Group G: Brazil vs Serbia (2 p.m.)
The favorite to win the tournament plays tonight against a very difficult team like Serbia. Neymar and company will make their debut on the last day of the first game of the group stage looking to cement their title chances and let everybody who is watching know that they mean business. It doesn’t matter who plays tonight for them. They all come in great form, especially Neymar, who has been fantastic for PSG.
Serbia has been poised by many to be the tournament’s black horse, an incognito for the competition. Milinković-Savić, Filip Kostić, D. Vlahović, and team captain Dušan Tadić make up a great team. Brazil will have a hard time beating this Serbian team.
