๐ŸšจWorld Cup Group H Summary ๐Ÿšจ
ย 
๐Ÿ“Š Predicted Group Finish:
ย 
1๏ธโƒฃ Portugal ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡นย 
2๏ธโƒฃ Uruguay ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡พย 
3๏ธโƒฃ Ghana ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญย 
4๏ธโƒฃ South Korea ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย 
ย 
ย 
โœ๏ธ Team By Team Thoughts & Info:
ย 
1๏ธโƒฃ Portugal ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡นย 
ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น Portugal are managed by Fernando Santosย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น Diogo Costa ($5m) should be in goals ๐Ÿฅ… – UCL Fantasy Fans will know him well as heโ€™s delivered some mega hauls and has a good record of penalty saves ๐Ÿงค
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น Man Cityโ€™s Joao Cancelo ($6m) has the chance to shine on the biggest stage of all now and I suspect he will. Heโ€™s scored twice and assisted once in his last 5๏ธโƒฃ Portugal starts. Dias ($5.5m) and Pepe ($5m) should play centre back.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น Bruno F will be in midfield and costs $9.5m. Man Cityโ€™s Bernardo Silva will play and costs $9m. Wolvesโ€™ Neves ($7.5m) and Mourinho ($7m) provide extra quality in midfield.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น CR7 costs $10m and will love the limelight ๐Ÿ’ก of what will presumably be his last World Cup ๐Ÿ†. Heโ€™s certainly going to want to be in the shop window ๐ŸชŸ after his Piers Morgan interview ๐ŸŽ™โ€ผ๏ธJoao Felix will hope this fulfil his potential on the worldโ€™s ๐ŸŒ biggest stage.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ–Š On Pensโ€ฆCR7 ($10m) then Bruno Fernandes ($9.5m)
ย 
๐ŸŽฒ Odds to win the ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ† = 14/1
ย 
ย 
ย 
2๏ธโƒฃ Uruguay ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡พย 
ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡พ Uruguay are managed by Diego Alonso.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡พ Come into the tournament in good form having won each of their final 4 qualifiers scoring 8 goals and conceding just 1๏ธโƒฃ.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡พ Itโ€™s not 100% clear to me who will start in goals but I believe that it could be Rochet ($4m) ahead of the experienced Muslera ($5m)
ย 
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡พ Stalwart Diego Godin costs just $4m. Barcaโ€™s Ronald Araujo ($3.5m) would normally be nailed ๐Ÿ”จ but as heโ€™s only recently back from a serious injury he may not be risked in the group games. He has though made the squad.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡พ In midfield the big star โญ๏ธ is Federico Valverde ($8.5m) who is a quality player as is Spursโ€™ Bentancur ($6m). Note with Valverdeโ€ฆhe has only scored 2๏ธโƒฃ goals for Uruguay so itโ€™s a big price to pay for that output.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡พ Just look ๐Ÿ‘€ at that talent up frontโ€ผ๏ธ Darwin Nunez ($8m), Luis Suarez ($7.5m), Edison Cavani ($7.5m) and Facundo Pellistri ($6.5m) is a pretty awesome forward line to choose fromโ€ฆalbeit there are some ageing legs ๐Ÿฆต in there nowโ€ผ๏ธ Suarez has 7๏ธโƒฃ goals and 4๏ธโƒฃ assist in his 13 World Cup appearances ๐Ÿ‘. I expect Suarez and Nunez to be the first choice pairing up ๐Ÿ”.
ย

ย 
๐ŸŽฒ Odds to win the ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ† = 40/1

3๏ธโƒฃ Ghana ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญย

ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ Ghana are managed by German ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช born Ghanaian Otto Addo who took charge of the team earlier this year.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ In qualifying they topped the group (on head to head), with South Africa left in 2nd place. Many Ghanians believe this is their weakest squad for a generation though ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ. They are perhaps Africaโ€™s most unpredictable nation in Qatar ๐Ÿค”.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฒ In nets should be Nurudeen ($4.5m).ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฒ In defence Southamptonโ€™s Mohammed Salisu ($3.5m) should get plenty of minutes and is cheap as chips ๐ŸŸ. Abdul-Rahman Baba ($3.5m) is familiar to me given the time heโ€™s spent in the Championship with Reading. Denis Odoi ($4m) of Club Brugge in Belgium should also feature.
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ Arsenalโ€™s Thomas Partey (not priced at the time of writing), Leicesterโ€™s Daniel Amartey ($4.5m) Ajaxโ€™s Mohammed Kudus ($6m) , Brightonโ€™s Tariq Lamptey ($4m) are more names that people will be aware of. Kudus ($6m) in particular is seen as an exciting young talent and is likely to take up an attacking false 9๏ธโƒฃ position.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฒ Palaceโ€™s ๐Ÿฆ…Jordan Ayew is $6m and his brother Andre who now plays for Al Saad is the same price. Both are expected to be nailed ๐Ÿ”จ in the team.ย ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ–Š On Pensโ€ฆJordan Ayew ๐Ÿฆ… then Andre Ayew
ย 
๐ŸŽฒ Odds to win the ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ† = 250/1
ย 
ย 
4๏ธโƒฃ South Korea ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ทย

ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท South Korea are managed by Paulo Bento ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น and have now qualified for 10 consecutive World Cupsโ€ผ๏ธ Theyโ€™ve only managed to get out of the group stages on 2๏ธโƒฃ occasions though. On one of those occasions (when co-hosting the tournament in 2002), they did make the semis though ๐Ÿ‘ .ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท Theyโ€™ve suffered some heavy defeats in the not too distant pastโ€ฆBrazil demolished them 5-1 in June and then big rivals Japan ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต beat them 3-0 in July of this year.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท Kim Seung-gyu ($4.5m) should be in goals ๐Ÿฅ…
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท Napoliโ€™s central defender Kim Min-jae will be at centre back and costs $4.5m.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท Wolves ๐Ÿบ midfielder Hwang Hee-chan will provide attacking intent from midfield and costs $6.5m. Another creative force will be ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธMallorcaโ€™s Lee Kang-in ($ tbc).
ย 
๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท Weโ€™ll have to wait and see ๐Ÿ‘€ if Heung-min Son is fit enough to make the opening Group games but heโ€™s been declared fit enough to make the squad. He costs $8.5m and is their Talisman.ย 
ย 
๐Ÿ–Š On Pensโ€ฆHeung-min Son
ย 
๐ŸŽฒ Odds to win the ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ† = 200/1
ย 
๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธ Portugal and Uruguay should walk this group to be honestโ€ฆand especially if Son isnโ€™t fully fit due to his eye ๐Ÿ‘ socket injury.
