The 2022 World Cup in Qatar will start in a few months and the preparations are almost over. The list for the qualified teams is also starting to be full, with only a few spots left before the 32 teams will be completed.
Most of the top teams are from Europe and two of them are from South America. In this article, we will be talking about the top contestants of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The Netherlands team is filled with young talents and some of them are names that are already known to the world such as Matthijs de Ligt, Daley Blind, Virgil van Dijk, Stefan de Vrij, and Denzel Dumfries. The main athletes of this national team are strong, giving this team an excellent defense against their opponents.
The performances of Denmark in the World Cup has been excellent, being qualified after seven wins straight. However, being qualified is not enough and they have so much work to do considering that they lost their star player, Christian Eriksen.
It seems unusual to put the European champions in a number eight position on this list and being under the teams that they have defeated in the Euro 2020. However, despite being a strong team in Europe, they don’t have a strong lineup right now to excel in the international competitions.
We can see that Belgium is under a lot of pressure right now considering that they are the current holders of the number one spot on the FIFA Best National Team World Rankings. The
team mostly rely on the performances of Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku, but the others need to step up for them to shine.
Having won the Copa America, the team is solely focused on giving Lionel Messi his first World Cup win before he retires. Despite having an improved defense, Argentina must realize that Messi is getting much older than his teammates and he couldn’t win the games by himself.
Spain has displayed some of the best performances this year but their lack of creativity cost them some of their matches. Most of the team’s players are at the younger age like Gavi, Pedri, and Ansu Fati.
England still has a lot of potential despite having been defeated in the World Cup semi-finals and the European Championship finals. One solution that Gareth Southgate is seeing is to improve the offensive potential of his team.
Being dropped early during the last-16 round of Euro 2020, Germany have improved over the time. The return of Joaquim Low’s assistant Hansi Flick is also good, giving the team plenty of motivation and hope.
We could see that France is doing all their best to protect their title as the defending champions of the FIFA World Cup. Aside from having star players such as N’Golo Kante and Kylian Mbappe, the team is also having a strong defense.
If there is any team that has a lineup that is strong in all positions, it’s Brazil. Having defenders like Fabinho and Casemiro, goalkeepers like Alisson and Ederson, and forwards Antony and
Raphinha. Neymar is still considered as the star player of the team but they are still excellent even if Neymar wasn’t around.
The 2022 World Cup is an important event in the world of sports and the preparations are intense. At this point of the competition, it is still hard to tell which team will most likely to excel in the finals but we will soon get there. We hope that this guide will be a good help in your football betting.
