FIFA World Cup, the biggest tournament of football, is going to start from November 20. It is being hosted by the Asian country Qatar. This will be the first time a Middle East country will host a FIFA World Cup. A total of 64 matches will be played by 32 teams in this tournament. The best footballers from all over the world will take part in it. Argentina’s star footballer Messi and international football’s highest goal scorer Ronaldo will also play in it. This could be the last World Cup for both the players.

Qatar will host
Qatar will host the FIFA World Cup this year. This is the 22nd edition of the FIFA World Cup. This is the second time the World Cup is being organized in Asia. Earlier in 2002, Japan and South Korea hosted the World Cup together. Qatar is the smallest country to host the World Cup. The country with a population of 3 million is expecting 1.5 million visitors during the FIFA World Cup.

Matches will be played in a total of 8 stadiums in 5 cities of Qatar. All stadiums are located in a 55-kilometre radius of the capital, Doha. Khalifa International Stadium is operational since 1976. All other stadiums have been built for the World Cup in the last 3 years.

Messi-Ronaldo will shine

In this year’s FIFA World Cup, two of the world’s best footballers, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, will play in the World Cup for the fifth time. 35-year-old Lionel Messi will play for his home team Argentina and 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo will play for Portugal. According to the reports of Spanish and English media, 2022 could be the last chance for both the players to win the World Cup.

Messi and Ronaldo have won all the major titles in club football. Both also made their international team champions of the continent (Portugal at Euro 2016; Argentina in the 2021 Copa America) but both players have not won the World Cup till date. This year both the players will try to get their country World Cup glory.

4 time champion team Italy could not qualify

Italy, a four-time FIFA World Cup champion, failed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup this year as well. Before this, Italy last played the World Cup in 2014. Italy won the World Cup in 1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006.

All eyes will be on Argentina, France and Brazil
Argentina, France and Brazil are considered to be strong contenders to win the World Cup this time. Argentina has won the Copa America tournament. Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni has proved to be very good for the team. Scaloni became the coach of Argentina after the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Since then he has led Argentina to two international trophies. They have the ability to win matches with their team selection strategy. Lionel Messi will handle the attack. The team’s midfielders Angel De Maria and De Paul are in good form. The line has been strengthened with the arrival of Lisandro Martinez in the defence.

Lionel Messi has scored 4 goals and 7 assists in 8 matches playing for PSG.  Also became man of the match 5 times

France will have to save the trophy
FIFA World Cup 2018 winners France can win the cup this year as well. All eyes are on the team’s star striker Kylian Mbappe. Kylian Mbappe is Europe’s third highest goal scorer this season. The striker, winger and defender of the France team are running in top form. Defeating this team will be challenging for everyone.

The 23-year-old Mbappe has been the top scorer of France's Ligue 1 for the last 4 years.

Brazil attack strong

Despite losing the Copa America, Brazil is one of the strong contenders to win this year’s World Cup. Brazil’s attacking lineup is very strong. Neymar will lead the Brazilian team. Neymar is seen in a different color in the PSG club this year. Neymar is the number two top goal scorer in club football in Europe. This year his form has returned. In Brazil’s attacking lineup, Vinicius Jr., Roberto Firminho, Gabriel Asus and Rafina have played a key role in their respective clubs.

In Brazil’s attacking lineup, all the players are seen in their top form. He is also an experienced player in the defense of Brazil. Thiago Silva, 38, star Juventus defender Danilo, 31, and Casemiro, one of Europe’s top players, will lead the defense. Along with this, Brazil has two of Europe’s best goalkeepers. Manchester City’s Ederson and Liverpool’s Alison Baker will strengthen the last line of defense in the World Cup.

Spain’s young midfield
The winning team of the 2010 World Cup will take on the ground with Spain Young Players. Former Barcelona FC coach Luis Enrique is impressive. In the 2015 season, he won the Treble (the three main trophies of the season) to FC Barcelona. He set up a new team in the 2020 Euro Cup and surprised everyone with his tactics. In the semi-finals of the Spain Euro Cup, the winning team took the game to a penalty, giving a tough competition to Italy.

The team is relying on young players this season. Barcelona players Gavi, 17, and Pendri, 18, will play a key role in the midfield. Also captain Sergio Busquets will lead the midfield. Spain has divers players, but the attacking lineup will be a matter of concern. There are less experienced players in the forward line of the team.

Captain Sergio Busquets is the team's most experienced player.  He was also part of the 2010 winning team.

Germany can surprise

Thomas Muller is the second highest goalscorer of the 2014 World Cup.

Although Germany’s team is not in form, but its players can surprise everyone. Four-time World Cup champions Germany were eliminated in the group stage last time. So this time Germany has handed over the command of the team to former Munich coach Hansi Flick. Hansi Flick led Bayern Munich to sixtuples (6 major cups) in the same season. In the history of European club football, there are only 3 teams that have won 6 cups in a season.

Germany’s players are in form. The team has at least one key player in each position. Both Germany’s goalkeepers Noyer and Ter Stegen have saved their club from defeat several times this season. In midfield, Gundogan and Khimich will play a key role in their team. In the forward, experienced players like Sane and Nabri like Fast and Muller together can score a lot of goals for the team.
