World Cup 2022: How does qualification from the group stage work and what are the tiebreakers?



Players of Tunisia and Denmark line up on the pitch under a giant World Cup trophy prior to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Group D match between Denmark and Tunisia at Education City Stadium on November 22, 2022 in Al Rayyan, Qatar.

As the matches continue to roll in, the 2022 World Cup group stage will be over before we know it. In fact, after Senegal’s 3-1 victory over Qatar – who became the first hosts to be knocked out of the World Cup after two games – we are one third out of the 48 fixtures that make up the first round of the tournament.

It is therefore impossible not to consider the different permutations… Who will pass? What must Team X and Team Y do to succeed?
