FIFA World Cup is the most prestigious competition of Football. The 22nd edition of this tournament will take place in 2022. Qatar will have the privilege to host this tournament for the very first time in their history. Brazil is the most successful nation in the FIFA WC history with 5 trophies beside their names. In the second place, both Germany as well Italy have tasted the glory on 4 occasions. Moreover, France, Argentina and Uruguay have won it twice. England and Spain also won this prestigious title one time each. In this article, we will discuss about the 2022 Qatar World Cup possible winner.
# 2022 Qatar World Cup Possible Winner:
As I have mentioned it earlier, the current title holders have won the competition twice. The Les Bleus tasted their first world cup glory in 1998 when Didier Deschamps lifted the trophy as the captain. 20 years later Deschamps once again lift the 18 karat gold trophy, but this time he won it as the coach. The living legend continues his journey as the French manager and his team will once again enter the competition as the favourites. Attacker Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe as well as midfielder Pogba will be the key players for them once again.
The 4 times World Cup champions won the tournament in 1954, 1974, 1990 and 2014. But surprisingly, the Bavarians were knocked out from the group stage of the 2018 Russia WC. They started the campaign with a 1-0 defeat against Mexico, as a Hirving Lozano strike made the difference in that match. They managed to come back from behind to win the second next against Sweden, thanks to a late Toni Kroos goal. But somehow they faced an unfortunate defeat once again against South Korea. Die Mannschaft will try to come back strong in the next edition of the WC and the likes of Toni Kroos, Marco Reus, Julian Draxler and Leroy Sane would be their key options.
The Red Devils do have the most balanced and strong squad in the world on pen and paper. They have got plenty of options and this side has been labelled as their ‘Golden Generation’. Moreover, their midfield and attacking combination is undoubtedly the best in the world. They have played well throughout the last major events but somehow the European nation bottled it either in the quarter-finals or in the semifinal. Roberto Martinez’s lads will try to break the deadlock on this occasion. They will rely highly on Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard for their success.
The Penta champions are once again the hot favourites to win this tournament. The most successful nation in football history couldn’t fulfil the fans’ expectation in the last 4 campaigns. For instance, in the 3 out of last 4 editions, their runs ended in the quarter-final. In the last edition of this competition, they lost the battle against Belgium and went back to home even without qualifying for the semi. But they come back strongly in the Copa America and lift the trophy in their home soil. They have got a bunch of young talented footballers. Goalkeeper Alisson Becker proved to be the most vital player in their squad at this moment.
You might be laughing after watching such a prediction. Don’t take me as an Argentine fan as I’m a believer in the “All’s well that ends well”. I think you’ve got the point, what I’m indicating. Argentina is a lot weaker side than the previously mentioned teams. But maybe Lionel Messi is going to get what he deserves, at the end. The Albicelestes do have a threatening attack which can destroy any defence on their days. If the 5 time Ballon d’Or winner gets enough support from his teammates, I’m guessing the left-footed magician will be able to fulfil his World Cup dream.
Special Mentions: Spain, Italy, England, Netherlands.
