Top 5 Favorites For 2022 Qatar Football World Cup

The countdown for the Qatar World cup has begun. As Euro 2020 and Copa America have finished, the focus will be shifted to the big occasion that people have been waiting for for 4 years.

Today we will discuss five potential teams who could lift the trophy in the Qatar world cup. 

Italy

Technically Italy used to be very diffensive in their approach as a Football team. However, under the coaching of Roberto Mancini they seemed to play with an attacking mindset, which eventually helped them to produce great results off late. In addition they are doing far enough as a unit in the defensive position to put the opposition under pressure. 

Italy was behind in the final after conceding the goal in just two minutes. England dominated the first half of the allocated 90 minutes. However, they made a remarkable turnaround in the second half where they took control of the game. Hence, Leonardo Bonucci scored the all-important goal to put Italy back on track. These were the only instances when the English defense faced immense pressure around the box. They carried the momentum in the extra time as well in the penalty shoot-out.

As a result, they won the title of Euro 2020 by beating England. Definitely, it will be a huge boost to their team’s confidence heading towards the Qatar World Cup 2022. They will be one of the well-deserved candidates to claim the prestigious world cup trophy.

France 

Defending champion France has been knocked out of the Euro 2020 by the excellence of Switzerland in the quarter-final. However, they will come back strong with more intensity in the upcoming Football World cup. It is evident that the inclusion of Benzema in the France team has definitely boosted their strength in the frontline. Undoubtedly with the presence of fantastic trio Embape, Grizzman, and pogba in France attacking line, they are one of the contenders for the 

Next world cup. 

England

Although they lost the all-important final match against Italy. But they have displayed some great football throughout the tournament. Italy was too good for them in the final and it was one of the matches where they got the better of them. 

England will come back with some more agileness in the next year. They looked rock-solid as a defense unit. Moreover, they put the opposition under pressure with their attacking football. Harry Kane’s journey so far has been absolutely brilliant for England. He has been their main weapon in the attacking positions. His partnership with Raheem Sterling is a wonderful one. 

In addition, England manager Gareth Southgate so far has been instrumental as a coach. They will be really focused to forget their Euro 2020 Final failure and make a strong comeback. 

Germany

Since the 2018 Football World Cup Germany looked out of sorts as a unit. They were out of the world cup from the first round for the first time in their history. In continuation of the process, they played average football to their standards in this Euro Cup 2020.

German defense looked in complete disarray which eventually cost them the game in the all-important quarter-final. Hence they were perished by confident England. Joakim Law has ended a fantastic tenure as a coach after the big disappointment in the Euro. Germany is one of the most successful teams in Football World Cup history. The new coach will take over the responsibility from him to steady the ship and make them ready to roar again. 

They have good enough players in their system to make a strong comeback. They have talented young players like Kai Havertz in their circuit who have already shown some glimpse of their potential. 

Having said that, Germany has to be at their level best to claim their 5th title.

Argentina

Our last pick may raise many eyebrows. However, Argentina is in a very good space after winning a major tournament after 28 years. Argentina looked really focused as a group in the recently concluded Copa America. 

They have some weaknesses in the defensive positions. However, Emiliano Martinez who played as the replacement of Sergio Romario has shown some great skills in Copa America to claim the trophy. While Lionel Messi looked in good touch apart from the final against Brazil. 

Qatar 2022 is going to be the last World Cup for football genius Messi, so his team will be really motivated to provide a farewell to him.

There are a lot of differences between Latin American and European football in terms of quality. 

 So as a team Argentina has to improve in certain parts of the game to hold the World cup after a long drought. To be precise Argentina has to be at their level best to compete against the hardcore football of Europe.

Conclusive Words:

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the world is going through trauma. The Football world cup always holds the world together and people seem to enjoy this event.

Hopefully, the 2022 football world cup will be a fascinating competition to make people smile again.
