World Cup 2022 Switzerland Group & Preview
Switzerland enters Group G of the World Cup 2022 along with its strong competitors Serbia, Brazil, and Cameroon.
They are comfortable in this group because they were in the same group at the last competition.
Switzerland qualified for the World Cup in Qatar automatically after defeating Bulgaria 4-0 at home in November, solidifying their lead in Group C.
Murat Yakin’s team will be one to watch when the tournament begins, as they have a strong defense line that can also unlock the opponent, a perfect record in qualifying, and have only allowed two goals.
The talisman is Xerdan Shaqiri, a former Liverpool and Bayern Munich player who presently plays for the Chicago Fire in Major League Soccer. They want him, who is 30 years old, to lead and encourage their team.
Switzerland topped a group dominated by Italy, the incumbent European champion, with only two goals scored against it in qualification.
The Swiss national team has reached the World Cup quarterfinals four times in the last five years. Switzerland joined Brazil in the preliminary quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup after defeating Serbia.
Switzerland, which has three World Cup quarterfinal appearances, will participate for the 12th time in Qatar in 2022. The qualifying events will be the most successful series in the history of Switzerland.
In October, Switzerland is likely to announce its World Cup 2022 team. Murat Yakin’s men won their qualification group, assuring their participation in the competition. They won by two points over Italy and nine points over Northern Ireland, who finished third.
The Swiss national football team will compete in the World Cup for the twelfth time. They hosted the competition 20 years after their first appearance. This was their second tournament appearance, following their first in 1934.
Switzerland has reached the World Cup quarterfinals three times before, but not since 1954, when the country hosted the tournament. It happened three times in the four prior competitions in which they competed.
