For the first time in the event’s history, the games will take place during the winter months, interrupting the club soccer season schedule. This is the last time we will see the format with 32 teams in the field before it expands to 48 in time for 2026 when the United States, Mexico and Canada host.

Speaking of the United States, the Americans made their long-awaited return to the world’s biggest stage with a draw against Wales after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. This is the 11th World Cup appearance for an American team that reached the World Cup in eight of the last nine editions. Gregg Berhalter’s USMNT finished third out of eight teams in Concacaf’s qualifying group, behind Mexico and Canada.

The Canadians are making their second appearance in the World Cup and the first since 1986 when the tournament was held in Mexico. They started with a tough loss to Belgium in a group that includes Morocco and 2018 runners-up Croatia. Meanwhile, Mexico has drawn Poland into a tough group where Saudi Arabia has already stunned Argentina.

As far as the contenders go, when the tournament began, no team had shorter odds (courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook) to win it all than Brazil at +360 as Tite searches for the sixth star atop the Seleção crest. Not far behind Brazil in the futures are Argentina (+500), France (+700), Spain (+750), England (+850) and Germany (+1100).

Keep up to date with the schedule, standings and scores right here. Before we dive into the standings, it’s worth pointing out how the tiebreaker works. There are seven procedures before we get to the point where we need to draw lots to decide which team(s) will advance. The last men’s World Cup, Japan edged out Senegal to reach the knockout stage due to FIFA fair play points. It’s not exactly crazy to imagine history repeating itself in Qatar.
