Bisnis.com, JAKARTA – Contest in World Cup 2022 pretty tight, here are the permutations aka opportunities for teams to qualify for the knockout stages.
The determination of the teams qualified for the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup is still very tight. Lots of surprises that happened involving the big teams.
There are still four final matches left in game day the second group stage of the 2022 World Cup which will take place from Monday (28/11/2022) to Tuesday (29/11/2022) in the morning. The four parties are from groups G and H.
Until game day the second is almost over, only France secures a place in the knockout stage.
France are certain to qualify for the round of 16 after winning 2-1 over Denmark on Saturday (26/11/2022).
With this result, France, which has collected six points thanks to two consecutive victories, is guaranteed to swing.
On the other hand, there are already two teams that are certain to be eliminated, namely the hosts Qatar and the newest one is Canada.
Canada did not participate in the 2022 World Cup after being knocked down by Croatia, 1-4, on Sunday (27/11/2022). Alphonso Davies and his colleagues also fell 0-1 against Belgium.
Just like the host, Qatar. After losing 0-2 to Ecuador in the 2022 World Cup opener, they lost 1-3 to Senegal.
The certainty of the teams qualifying for the Round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup or being eliminated in the group stage must be determined in the final match, i.e. the third day.
Here are the odds of qualifying from Group AF:
2022 World Cup group stage permutations
The Netherlands seem to have more chances of qualifying for the round of 16. Indeed, in the two matches played, the Oranje scored four points thanks to the victory over Senegal (2-0) and the draw against Ecuador (1-1).
The Netherlands only need a draw in the last game against Qatar to secure qualification on Tuesday (29/11/2022).
The reason is that Ecuador and Senegal, who have the option to displace the Netherlands, will meet in the last game.
Ecuador and Senegal will fight so one of them will definitely be eliminated. If the match ends in a draw, the Dutch will benefit more.
Group A standings for the 2022 World Cup:
*Eliminated in the group stage
In Group B, the competition is relatively tighter. Four teams, namely England, Iran, USA and Wales, still have a chance to qualify.
In the last match, which took place on Wednesday (30/11/2022) in the morning of the WIB, England will face Wales while Iran against the United States will face each other in a duel.
England cannot lose to Wales. Because it might actually reverse their position on the bottom panel.
If England lose to Wales with a big score, then Iran vs. USA ends with one of the winning teams, England will actually be eliminated.
Either Iran or USA will be confirmed for the last 16 if they win the final game.

Poland, Argentina, Saudi Arabia and Mexico all have the chance to qualify for the Round of 16.
Poland currently leads the standings with four points. However, in the final match, Thursday (1/12/2022) in the morning of the WIB, they will face Argentina.
The winner of the Poland vs Argentina match is certain to advance to the last 16 regardless of Saudi Arabia’s result against Mexico.
If the game ends in a draw, both teams will have to wait for the results from Saudi Arabia and Mexico. Poland is more profitable with a draw.
Mexico has the most complicated escape opportunity. Because, they must defeat Saudi Arabia by at least 4 goals, while hoping that the match Poland vs Argentina will end in a draw.
Saudi Arabia can qualify for the knockout stage if they win against Mexico. If Poland vs Argentina is a draw, the Green Falcons will win the group with this scenario.
2022 World Cup Group C standings:
France have already qualified, which means tickets for the next round are still in contention for Australia, Denmark and Tunisia.
Australia has the biggest chance because they are the only team that won in this group, apart from France.
In the last match, Wednesday (11/30/2022) WIB night, Australia will meet Denmark while Tunisia will face France.
Enough draws to send Australia through to the round of 16. Denmark will only qualify if they win.
Tunisia, even if facing France who are behind with the second line, should still have difficulties. The reason is that the Blues have capable squad depth at the 2022 World Cup.
Even with the win over France, Tunisia still have to wait for the Australia v Denmark match to see their chances.
2022 World Cup Group D standings:
* Qualified for the top 16
This group is presented as the group from hell. These words do not seem to be an exaggeration. The 2014 world champion, Germany, was turned upside down and became a goalkeeper.
Germany is the only team in this group that has never won. As a result, their chances of escaping were the slimmest.
In the last game of Group E, on Friday (2/12/2022) early morning WIB, Germany will face Costa Rica. At the same time, Japan challenged Spain.
If Germany win over Costa Rica, they will have to hope that Japan will lose to Spain. In this way, Der Panzer will finish second in the group and Spain in the lead. Germany is certain to fall if it does not win.
Japan and Costa Rica also need a win. An extra point from a draw is not enough to secure their position.
Powerful Spain, scoring eight goals in two matches, only need a draw to qualify on paper. Victory will make them lock in the position of group winners.
2022 World Cup Group E standings:
Morocco is a dark horse in this group. They created a surprise by facing one of the best teams, Belgium.
Croatia and Morocco now have four points, followed by Belgium with three points and Canada which is eliminated without a point.
The final Group F game on Thursday (1/12/2022) WIB night featured Croatia v Belgium and Canada v Morocco.
If both matches end in a draw, Croatia and Morocco will qualify. Belgium could only qualify with a win over Croatia.
Morocco too. With three points against Canada, Hakim Ziyech and his friends immediately confirmed the progress.
If Belgium win and Morocco draw, Croatia will be eliminated. The hot ball is now in the hands of Croatia against Belgium in the last match.
