What is the World Cup 2022 ‘Group of Death’? (Check Them Out)

What is the ‘Group of Death’ for the 2022 World Cup? . The draw for the event in Qatar produced a number of intriguing ties – but which one is the most difficult?

After each World Cup draw, it is customary to sort through the pool pairings for the ‘Group of Death,’ which consists of the four best teams.

The horrifically tough pools of the past – such as Argentina, England, Sweden, and Nigeria together in 2002 – are no longer so viable now that FIFA organizes its pots via ranking rather than continental confederations.

Which is the group of death?

It appears the trickiest group in Qatar is Group E, which features two former world champions from Europe and arguably Asia’s strongest contender.

Spain were world champions in 2010 while Germany were last winners in 2014, having taken the title on four occasions. However, both have suffered recent group stage exits, in 2014 and 2018 respectively.

They must both be wary of Japan, who eased through their qualifying pool with a seven-point gap over Australia, while Costa Rica and New Zealand – who must face in a play-off to decide who goes to Qatar – both have a recent history of World Cup upsets.
