On the day that the National Team enters the field for the first time in this World Cup (16 hours, on TVI), there are three more high-profile games, with emphasis on the clash between Uruguay and South Korea, who share Group H with Portugal .

Switzerland-Cameroon (10 hours, Sport TV1)

The first match of the day is Switzerland-Cameroon, the opening match of Group G, where players like Shaquiri (Chicago Fire), Sommer (M’Gladbach), Akanji (Machester City) or Xhaka (Arsenal) face Cameroonian stars like Onana ( Inter), Choupo-Mouting (Bayern) or Zambo Anguissa (Naples), all of them starters.

In a group that includes Brazil and Serbia, it is imperative to win this first game, to dream of advancing in the competition. Switzerland, although they lost in the friendly against Ghana, came from a good sequence of three victories in the League of Nations, while Cameroon come from two defeats in friendlies.

Uruguay v South Korea (13 hours, SportTV1)

Portugal will have the opportunity to analyze the opponents in Group H before holding the first meeting. Uruguay and South Korea, trained by Paulo Bento, measure forces, in a duel where the Uruguayans do not have Ronald Araújo () and have Cavani (Valencia) in doubt, and on the Korean side the possible casualty is the big star, Heung -Min Son (Tottenham).

Uruguay is in the process of rejuvenating its squad and has in Valverde (), Darwin () and Bentancur (Tottenham) the stars for the present and the future, while South Korea is more modest and makes use of a strong collective.

Portugal-Ghana (16 hours, TVI)

The long awaited day has arrived. The day of the debut of the National Team in the World Cup, where after knowing the result of the other Group H game, Portugal faces a strong Ghanaian team. With names like Thomas Partey (Arsenal) or Inaki Williams (Bilbao), the Ghanaians have one of the strongest teams in recent times. But Portugal, with one of the most complete generations ever, is not far behind and has all the conditions to guarantee a triumph in the Portuguese debut in the 2022 World Cup.

Brazil-Serbia (19 hours, RTP1)

At the end of the sports day, the favorite Brazil plays, with a Serbia that has given Portugal many problems and is very organized. If on one side we have Neymar (), Casemiro (), among many others, in the Serbian team there is also a lot of quality, such as the scorer Mitrovic (Fulham) or Milinkovic Savic (Lazio). A very offensive game is expected, between one of the most talented teams in the tournament and one of the most lethal in terms of effectiveness.
