Kasper Schmeichel may not be enjoying the best of seasons in France with Nice, but at international level he has been a steady and dependable force for some time, and the last line of defence in a side who have been very tough to break down.
won nine of their ten World Cup qualification matches, letting in just three goals in the process and, having got to the semi-finals of Euro 2020 last year, are widely regarded as a "dark horse" nation heading into Qatar.
Their group rivals will be World Cup holders France as well as Tunisia and . While Les Bleus will obviously be very tough, Tunisia and Australia lack any real star quality up front, so Denmark should not have too much trouble in keeping them out.
The tendency in fantasy football is for players to pick full-backs as their defenders, as they can get points from attacking. Achraf Hakimi certainly fits that bill.
He is a modern full-back who loves to get up and down the right flank for both Morocco and his club side .
The 24-year-old has scored three goals in 14 Ligue 1 matches for Les Parisiens this season as his reputation continues to grow as one of the best right-backs in the world, while for his country he has scored eight in 53 caps, including three this year.
Morocco are in Group F with Belgium, Canada, and and may fancy their chances of causing an upset. Canada are completely unknown at this level, while both Belgium and Croatia have ageing squads, particularly in defence where they may be vulnerable to more spritely opponents.
Last summer at Euro 2020, he scored three goals throughout the tournament which accounted for nearly half of their goals.
He still possesses an uncanny ability to produce something from nothing and he is still going strong at club level with Chicago Fire in the MLS - the 31-year-old has netted seven times in 29 appearances this season.
Set-pieces are usually vital during the group stage and Shaqiri could score or assist from any that are presented in Switzerland's direction.
Thomas Muller has been a World Cup superstar ever since his breakthrough year of 2010 and he is just like compatriot Miroslav Klose in that he seems to reserve his best moments for Die Mannschaft rather than his club.
With Timo Werner missing for Germany, the 33-year-old may be called upon more often than expected and his ability to find himself in the right place at the right time will be vital, particularly with so much attacking talent behind him.
Japan and being in Germany's group offers Muller the chance to score goals and he should not be ruled out of the running to win another Golden Boot award. You can back him at a big price of 66/1 in 2022.
The Barcelona wideman, who joined La Blaugrana from in the summer, might not have had a stellar time at the Nou Camp so far, but he has made a big impact in winning 11 caps, scoring five goals.
