The draw for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has left no real group of death, but Portugal’s Group H could be the most combustible.Let’s take a look at the four teams in group H: Portugal for Europe, Uruguay for South America, Ghana for Africa and South Korea for Asia.Portugal VS Uruguay is a familiar encounter, having met in the last World Cup’s quarter-finals.Cavani stole the spotlight from Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo in that quarter-final, scoring twice as Uruguay knocked out European Champions Portugal 2-1 and advanced to the last eight.After four years of waiting, Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal finally get their revenge.Portugal VS South Korea in a replay of the 2002 World Cup group match.Facing South Korea in the final round of the group stage, Portugal could have qualified with a draw after their other group opponent, Poland, took a 2-0 lead against the United States after just five minutes.Sadly, pinto was sent off in the 27th minute for a scissor-kick tackle on Ji-sung Park, and Beto in the 65th, two yellow and one red cards, which ended Portugal’s golden generation at the last World Cup.Park Ji-sung scored the winner in the 70th minute with two more players to beat Portugal 1-0 and advance to the top of the group with two wins and one draw in three rounds. Portugal was eliminated from the group for the third time.Of course, Portugal VS South Korea will not only be a national team match, but also a superstar match between Cristiano Ronaldo and Son Heung-min.These two great No. 7s will also attract a lot of attention.South Korea is a force to be reckoned with, having knocked defending champion Germany out of the last World Cup.Uruguay VS Ghana in a rematch of the 2010 World Cup quarter final.Suarez’s hand of God in extra time saved Ghana’s late goal and the referee awarded the red-dot package.Ghana failed to take the penalty and Uruguay dragged them into the shootout.As a result, Uruguay eliminated Ghana in a penalty shootout and miraculously reached the World Cup semi-finals.
