World Cup results: Brazil win Group G despite Cameroon loss, Serbia eliminated in loss to Switzerland

The final day of FIFA 2022 World Cup group stage action continues as Brazil face Cameroon and Switzerland take on Serbia in Group G. The Brazilians are the only team from the group to have qualified for the knockout stage as the remaining three hope to end the day having earned the final spot.

The action kicked off with a bang in Group H as Uruguay’s 2-0 win over Ghana wasn’t enough to advance as South Korea’s 2-1 win over Cristiano’s Portugal was enough to put them through to the knockout stages. Portugal win the group despite the loss and advance to the round of 16 as well.
