Group H

Portugal, European champions in 2016, have put together a superb supporting cast around Cristiano Ronaldo and will be keen to improve on a moderate World Cup record. Uruguay are rated their biggest threat in Group H, with Ghana and South Korea probably up against it at this level.

Uruguay, who lifted the trophy in 1930 and 1950, reached the semis in 2010 and the last eight in Russia. La Celeste have some ageing veterans such as Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani and Diego Godin, but rising stars like Darwin Nunez and Federico Valverde help to redress the balance.

Ghana went close to becoming the first African side to reach a World Cup semi-final in 2010, when beaten on penalties by Uruguay, but the Black Stars made hard work of qualifying, finishing ahead of South Africa on goals scored and needing the away goals rule to edge out Nigeria.

South Korea have made it to 10 straight World Cup tournaments and will be looking to Tottenham star Son Heung-min to fire them through to the knockout rounds for the third time after a fairly straightforward march through the AFC section.
