Several Spurs players could face off against each other at 2022 World Cup

The Tottenham stars set to travel to the World Cup in Qatar later this year have learned their group stage opponents after the draw was made on Friday.

There are certainly some big games to watch out for from a Tottenham perspective, with several Spurs stars set to go up against each other in the group stage.

Hugo Lloris and France will begin their defence of the World Cup in a group containing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s Denmark, with the French being placed into Group D along with the Danes, Tunisia and either UAE, Australia or Peru.

Harry Kane’s England have been placed in Group B, where they could face Ben Davies’ and Joe Rodon’s Wales, Scotland or Ukraine.

Eric Dier, who has 45 England caps to his name, will also be hoping to make the Three Lions squad for Qatar. Cameron Carter-Vickers, who remains eligible for the USA, are also in England’s group.

Pape Matar Sarr could go up against Steven Bergwijn when Senegal and the Netherlands meet in Group A, while Son Heung-min’s South Korea will come up against Rodrigo Bentancur’s Uruguay in Group H.

Cristian Romero and Giovani Co Celso could also come up against some familiar faces in Qatar as Argentina are in Group C along with Spain, for whom Bryan Gil and Sergio Reguilon would be hoping to play.

Emerson Royal would be aiming to make the Brazil squad while Lucas Moura might also be hoping for an unlikely recall to the Selecao set-up.

Here are the groups for the 2022 World Cup:

Group A: Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal, Netherlands.
Group B: England, Iran, USA, Wales/Scotland/Ukraine.
Group C: Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Poland.
Group D: France, UAE/Australia/Peru, Denmark, Tunisia.
Group E: Spain, Costa Rica/New Zealand, Germany, Japan.
Group F: Belgium, Canada, Morocco, Croatia.
Group G: Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland, Cameroon.
Group H: Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay, South Korea.

Spurs Web Opinion

There are some tasty encounters to look forward to from a Spurs perspective and I am keen to see Wales qualify, not only so that we can see the likes of Kane and Dier go up against Bale, Davies and Rodon, but also because of the spirit and togetherness that Robert Page’s men play with, particularly in major tournaments.
