Portugal vs Ghana Preview

Group H could be the most interesting of all the groups in the World Cup. Besides Portugal and Ghana, the group also features Uruguay and South Korea.

One of the most interesting storylines for Portugal in this World Cup is their star Cristiano Ronaldo, who went scorched earth on his team, Manchester United during an interview a week before the start of the tournament. Could that be a distraction for Portugal in this tournament? only time will tell.

However, two of Ronaldo’s teammates are also his teammates at Manchester United in Bruno Fernandes and Diego Dalot. Even with that Portugal enters the tournament as a favorite to advance out of the group stage at -150.

Portugal is currently ranked ninth in the FIFA world rankings and is coming off of an appearance in the Round of 16 in 2018. Beyond Ronaldo, this Portugal team has plenty of talent and features a few players that can make an impact on the squad.

Rafael Leao is coming off of a breakout performance for AC Milan as he helped them win their first Serie A title since 2010-11. Also, Portugal is going young in goal with Diogo Costa and many have high hopes for the 23-year-old in his first World Cup.

Ghana enters the World Cup and Group H as an underdog but has plenty of potential. The team is currently ranked 61 in FIFA world rankings ahead of the tournament.

The team is back in the World Cup after failing to qualify in 2018. Ghana’s odds of winning the group entering the tournament were at +1200 making them a longshot to advance past the stage.

Ghana is also now a much different team than the one that made strides on the World Cup stage in 2010 as they advanced to the quarterfinals. However, the team has gotten an influx of talent from dual-national players like Inaki Williams and Dennis Odoi.

Another player to watch on this Ghana team will be Issahaku Fatawu, who plays for Sporting CP in Portugal and in his first year with the team is already from powers like Manchester United.

There’s a lot to look out for in this opening matchup. If Portugal enters the game distracted then Ghana could be in a position to potentially pull an upset.
