Qatar 2022: 13 Tickets Up for Grab As Last Group Matches Commence
The last round of group matches at the Qatar 2022 World Cup commence today with only three teams already qualified for the knockout stage. The remaining 13 tickets will be at stake as teams battle in their last group matches or their last matches if they fail to qualify.
France, who are the defending champions were the first to qualify for the knockout stage. Brazil and Portugal picked their tickets yesterday.
On the other hand, two teams are out of the World Cup no matter the outcome of their last match. Host Qatar and Canada have already been eliminated from the World Cup after losing two matches respectively.
Therefore, 27 teams will be fighting for the remaining 13 tickets. Among them are all five African teams.
The Teranga Lions will take on Ecuador as the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia face France.
Atlas Lions of Morocco will seek to devour Canada as the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon tread tackles with Brazil.
Basking in the euphoria of their 3-2 victory over South Korea, Ghana will confront Uruguay in a clash that both sides will need to win.
Africa has never gone beyond the quarter final of the World Cup, a feat achieved by Cameroon in 1990, Senegal in 2022 and Ghana in 2010.
