Group H play began Thanksgiving day with Uruguay and South Korea kicking things off. Portugal and Ghana round out this group.

Portugal entered the World Cup as favorites to win this group according to DraftKings Sportsbook. Uruguay are expected to advance to the knockout stage, but Ghana and South Korea are no slouches. While this might not be considered the “Group of Death”, these four teams should all be competitive to make this one of the tougher groups to predict.

Here are the standings and upcoming schedule for Group H at the 2022 World Cup.

Update — In another wild ending to a group, South Korea gets in on the goals scored tiebreaker over Uruguay, who defeated Ghana 2-0 on Friday. South Korea was able to get past Portugal, which also advances after beating Uruguay and Ghana previously in the group.

Monday, November 28
Ghana 3, South Korea 2 — This match was looking like a bit of a snoozefest with Ghana up 2-0 in the second half but immediately flipped on its head with two goals from South Korea. Ghana eventually went in front on a strike from Mohammed Kudus and held on for the win. These are three massive points for Ghana, who are now right in the mix for the knockout round. South Korea need some results to go their way but they haven’t been eliminated yet.

Portugal 2, Uruguay 0 — Cristiano Ronaldo’s side are into the knockout round courtesy of two goals from Bruno Fernandes against Uruguay. La Celeste are still not out of the running but they’ll need some help in the final matchday to advance to the knockout round.
