match preview

Switzerland vs Cameroon
Despite their good form on the European stage, Switzerland’s encounter with Cameroon could be a tough one. The Swiss reached the Euro 2020 quarter-finals before losing a penalty shootout to Spain. It also finished ahead of Italy in its World Cup qualifying group to avoid the playoffs.
Cameroon, on the other hand, are aiming to reach the last 16 with their star players. Cameroon has failed to perform on the global stage since 1990 when it reached the quarter-finals.

portugal vs ghana
Heavyweights Portugal will be eager to get an easy point in their opening match against Ghana, although Cristiano Ronaldo is already in the news due to his Manchester United split.
In terms of performance, Euro 2016 champions Portugal’s performance in their last warm-up match against Nigeria (4-0) was exceptional. But one considers their FIFA WC performances, Portugal have only reached the semi-finals of the World Cup on two occasions, in 1966 and 2006, and they have failed to go past the last 16 in four of their last five tournaments.
On the other hand, underdogs Ghana, who reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup in 2010, recently beat Switzerland 2-0 in a friendly.

Portugal probable starting lineup:
costa; Cancelo, Pepe, Dias, Guerrero; Neves, Carvalho, Fernandes; B Silva, Ronaldo, Leo
Ghana probable starting lineup:
too jiggy; Lampty, Amarte, Jiku, Baba; Party, Abdul Samad; Sulemana, Qudus, J. age; Williams.

brazil vs serbia
Five-time champions Brazil are all set to start their first match against Serbia. Brazil is the favorite team of this year. The Seleção last won the title in 2002. And since then the World Cup has seen a bad patch. In Russia in 2018, Brazil crashed out in the quarter-finals after losing 1–2 to Belgium. But this year Brazil, featuring players like Neymar, Casemiro, Fred, Thiago Silva and Alisson, are in good form after going unbeaten in their last 15 matches.
On the other hand, Serbia is also looking good. After topping their qualifying group, Dragan Stojkovic’s team had an excellent Nations League campaign, losing just one of their six matches.

Brazil probable starting lineup:
Alison; Danilo, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Sandro; Casemiro, Paqueta; Rafinha, Neymar, Vinicius Jnr; richardson

Serbia Possible starting lineup:
V. Milinkovic-Savic; Milenkovic, S. Mitrovic, Pavlovic; Zivkovic, Gudelj, S. Milinkovic-Savic, Kostic; Tadic; Vlahovic, Jovic
