Vyacheslav Grozny is a famous Ukrainian coach and expert:
“The Pentacampeons are the clear favorites of the tournament. And personally, I think that they will become world champions. This is my prediction! Their goalkeepers are Alison and Ederson from the Premier League. In defense on the flanks – Danilo and experienced Dani Alves, who will be as a playing coach. It will also be needed for the locker room. In the center of defense are Marquinhos, Militao, Bremer and Thiago Silva. Plus great flank players Alex Sandro and Alex Telles. In attack – Rodrigo, Anthony and Rafinha. Also attacking are Pedro, Vinicius, Martinelli, Richarlison, Neymar and Jesus. I named the composition as an argument why they can become world champions.
Switzerland after Euro 2020 left coach Petkovic. The team was headed by Murat Yakin. Switzerland won their group in the selection, ahead of Italy. I will single out Jaka, Freuler, Sow, Zakaria, Sommer, Sher, Akanji, Shakiri, Seferovic in the Swiss team. They have a solid defense game and a good transition to the attack. They also have great pressure.
Cameroon in 1990 reached the quarterfinals of the World Cup. They became African champions. I will single out goalkeeper Onan and striker Shupo-Moting. Although they have problems in defense. Their head coach is the famous former football player Song, and the president of the football federation is Eto’o.
Serbia has a very playing team. They won their group in the selection, ahead of Portugal. They also won their group in the League of Nations. They are tall and play well in the air. I will single out Kostic, Milinkovic-Savic, Ilic. Jovic, Vlahovic and Mitrovic play in attack. Great strikers in Serbia. The soul of the team and its captain is Dusan Tadic! Serbia has a higher potential than Switzerland.
I do not rule out that Brazil and Serbia will reach the playoffs. But I won’t be surprised if the Swiss disagree. It’s harder for Cameroon because they have problems in defense.”
Sergey Nagornyak, head coach of the youth team of Ukraine and Epicenter:
“I think this is the hardest group. Brazil is the favorite at any World Cup in any condition. Switzerland has a very good team. The Cameroon national team always has a lot of legionnaires who play in Europe in top championships, in top teams. Serbia now is not the team that Ukraine beat 5-0. This is a slightly different Serbia.
It’s hard to say what will happen in this group. Yes, Brazil is the favourite. But it’s hard to say who will take second place. I wouldn’t be surprised if Brazil were knocked out in the group stage. Everything can be. All teams are strong. And it’s hard to predict. Only the Lord God can know how things will turn out in matches.
Mladen Bartulovich, head coach of Ingulets:
“A very difficult group. I think one of the hardest. Brazilians will not be easy in this quartet. It’s hard to even say who will take the first two places and what will be the schedule in the group. All teams are good”
