Fernando Santos, Portugal’s coach, explains he’s unfamiliar with Ghana, his group opponent.

After being placed in the same group as the four-time African champions for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Portugal coach Fernando Santos says he knows less about Ghana.

Uruguay and South Korea were also assigned to Group H during the draw on Friday in Doha, Qatar.

“It’s like looking at a glass that’s half full and half empty. If we look back at the previous World Cup, Uruguay would be considered the favorite. According to the rankings, Portugal will be the favorite.
