It’s another jam-packed day at the World Cup.

Welcome to Day Five of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and our dedicated hub where we will keep you updated on all the action from the tournament.

On Thursday, we have four games with Group G and Group H getting underway. First up, Switzerland face Cameroon at 10 am, which is followed by Uruguay versus South Korea at 1 pm. In the 4 pm game, Portugal take on Ghana. At 7 pm, Brazil come up against Serbia.

Brazil are one of the favourites for the tournament but are in a tricky group alongside Switzerland and Serbia, both of whom topped their qualification groups. Meanwhile, the focus will be on free agent Cristiano Ronaldo as Portugal start their campaign. Uruguay have also been touted as a potential dark horse.

On Wednesday, there was another surprise result as Japan came from behind to beat Germany 2-1.

The Germans now must avoid defeat to Spain on Sunday or they will crash out in the group stages for the second consecutive World Cup.

Spain, meanwhile, hammered Costa Rica 7-0 in the most complete performance of the tournament.

Elsewhere, in Group F, Croatia and Morocco played out a goalless draw and Belgium beat Canada 1-0.

The Belgians did not play well in the match but were let off the hook as Canada failed to take any of their goalscoring chances and missed a penalty.
