The FIFA World Cup will kick off on 20 November & the grand final will be played on 18 December. 32 teams will compete in this world cup to claim the glory & it will be an extremely exciting & tough competition.
This may be the last World Cup for the game’s two greatest players, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. This raises the stakes for Argentina and Portugal to win the World Cup in honor of their national heroes. Still, there are few other prominent teams that will look to fight till the end for this cup.
The teams listed below are most likely to make their way out of the knockout stage & reach the final to claim the crown.
Argentina are the favourites for winning the world cup this year as they have a well-managed & stable team under Lionel Scaloni.
“La Albiceleste”, are placed in Group C where they have to face Saudi Arabia, Mexico & Poland. It would be an easy task for Argentina to advance to the Round of 16 stage.
The Argentine team has a great chance to win the championship under the leadership of Lionel Messi, one of the greatest players to ever play the game. They have a strong squad made up of both experienced players & young stars such as Rodrigo de Paul, Lautaro Martínez, Ángel Di María, Cristian Romero & many others. They will be crucial to Argentina’s success. Lionel Scaloni’s team is well-balanced, and they appear to be as strong as ever to win the trophy.
The 2021 Copa América champions are unbeaten in 33 games while being coached by Lionel Scaloni. Argentina triumphed against Italy in the CONMEBOL-UEFA Cup of Champions matchup. The FIFA Men’s World Ranking presently has Argentina in third place. Albiceleste will receive a lot of support from the fans in Qatar due to the large number of fans heading there.
Argentina, which has two FIFA World Cup victories under its belt (1978 and 1986), will try to recapture the title after a 36-year absence.
Brazil is expected to win the trophy this time, according to several football experts. Brazil is now rated #1 in the FIFA World Ranking. That might be the case, but it doesn’t seem to be as simple as it sounds.
Brazil is in Group G with Serbia, Switzerland, and Cameroon. Brazil would effortlessly advance to the next stage since their chances against these teams are excellent.
Brazil is one of the tournament’s most star-studded teams, boasting players such as Neymar, Marquinhos, Vinicius Jr., Gabriel Jesus, Thiago Silva, and others. Brazil has a good chance of winning the World Cup with an experienced head coach like Tite in charge.
Brazil’s performance recently has been good yet they were not able to win the Copa América against Argentina, they are looking strong as a team. Brazil is the most decorated national team in World Cup history, having won the title five times. They will undoubtedly feel pressure to win it again and add to their nation’s glory.
The defending champions, France, will look to add another trophy to their collection; they are not looking as strong as they were in 2018, but we can’t deny that they are among the favourites to win this cup. France is in Group D, along with Denmark, Tunisia, and Australia. They have a great chance of progressing to the next stage.
France suffered from major blows before the world cup as the likes of N’Golo Kanté, Karim Benzema & Paul Pogba will not be able to take part in the world cup due to injuries. Thus, making it difficult for France to regain the trophy.
France’s recent performance in Nations League looks disastrous as they are placed at the bottom of their group as per now & are eliminated from the League too. This might be signs of worry for the fans of Les Bleus. This poor performance indicates that it won’t be that easy for France to claim the glory this time.
France is currently ranked fourth in the FIFA World Ranking. France has won two World Cups, the first in 1998 and recently in 2018. This time, they’ll be looking to add a third cup to their trophy cabinet.
Belgium’s golden generation will be desperate to win the FIFA World Cup for the first time in their country’s history. “The Red Devils” have been assigned to Group F, which includes Canada, Morocco, and Croatia. They will have an easy time making it to the Round of 16 stage.
Belgium’s Golden Generation team includes quality players such as Kevin de Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, and others. Belgium, coached by Roberto Martinez, appears to be a strong unit in this tournament.
Belgium is ranked second in the FIFA World Ranking. They have also looked impressive in recent Nations League performances. They would like to continue their current form in the World Cup. This could be the golden generation’s final chance at a world cup trophy, so they will go all out to win at least one.
England is looking very promising this time as they have a squad full of emerging star players led by experienced striker Harry Kane. England will look to dominate the Group B against Iran, USA & Wales. They have excellent chance of progressing it to the next stage but they can face some good competition from USA & Wales.
This England team has some fantastic young talent that will be crucial to their success in the tournament. Phil Foden, Trent Alexander Arnold, Mason Mount, Declan Rice, and a slew of other young guns are among those to keep an eye on in this World Cup. It’ll be interesting to see how Gareth Southgate manages this team filled with so much talent.
England, also known as “The Three Lions,” were relegated from the Nations League after failing to win a single game. This performance is concerning for English fans worldwide, and they will feel the pressure of this devastating performance in the World Cup as well. They currently hold the 5th place in the FIFA World Ranking.
Because they have only won the World Cup once, they need to win another trophy to demonstrate their dominance in the football world as a major football nation.
Argentina, Brazil, France, Belgium, and England are the top contenders for the FIFA World Cup 2022.
Other nations, such as Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Germany, could snatch the trophy from the nations listed in this post.
