A case for each of the favourites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar

The 2022 World Cup is just around the corner, and there are several favourites to lift the trophy in Qatar. Brazil is always a contender, as are Germany, France and Spain. Argentina is also in with a chance. These teams are all perennial contenders for the title and have the pedigree to back it up.

France

France has a solid case to be considered one of the favourites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Les Bleus had won the tournament in 1998 and 2018 and were runners-up in 2006. They have a wealth of talent in their squad, with world-class players like Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba, and Antoine Griezmann.

The French squad also has a very experienced manager in Didier Deschamps, who knows what it takes to win the World Cup. They will be looking to repeat their Russian prowess in Qatar and have the squad to do it.

Argentina

Argentina has a strong case for being one of the favourites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The team has arguably the best player in the world in Lionel Messi. They also have an excellent recent track record in international competition, reaching the final of the 2014 World Cup and winning the 2020 Copa America (in 2021).

This could be Messi’s last chance to win a World Cup with Argentina. Messi has been close to winning the World Cup before, but he’s never quite been able to get his hands on the trophy.

They have a strong team, and nobody will want to face Argentina in the knockout rounds. Messi is still one of the best on a football pitch, and he will be looking to add the long-coveted World Cup to his trophy collection.

Brazil

Brazil is the most awarded nation as they have won the World Cup on five occasions. They could well be adding another title to their collection at the end of the year. The Selecao are always one of the favourites for the World Cup, and they will have a strong squad capable of winning the tournament.

 Neymar, Philippe Coutinho, and Gabriel Jesus are some of the star players representing Brazil in Qatar. With such a talented team, it’s hard to bet against Brazil winning it all.

Germany

Germany is always a strong contender in any international tournament, and the 2022 FIFA World Cup will be no different. Die Mannschaft have won the quadrennial event four times in total and will be looking to add a fifth star to their badge come Qatar.

Joachim Low has built a strong squad over the years, with Manuel Neuer, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller still going strong and the new generation of German talents, such as Kai Havertz, Leroy Sane, and Timo Werner.

With a wealth of experience and quality throughout the squad, Germany will be one of the favourites to lift the trophy in Qatar. They have a strong track record in big tournaments and will aim to add another World Cup to their collection.

Spain

There are several reasons why Spain is a favourite to win the 2022 World Cup. Firstly, they have a solid team. They have top-class players in every position, and their squad is deep enough that they could field two different line-ups and still be competitive.

Secondly, Spain has a proven track record of success in international tournaments. In addition to their World Cup win, they have also won the European Championship twice, in 2008 and 2012.

Finally, Spain has an excellent recent record in World Cups. They have reached the knockout stage of every World Cup since 1994, and they have only lost one game in the group stage since 2002.

All these factors make Spain a solid favourite to win the 2022 World Cup. They have the experience and talent that makes them one of the favourites going into the tournament.

Conclusion

It is impossible to say who will win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, but Brazil, Germany, France, Argentina and Spain are all strong contenders. Whichever team eventually lifts the trophy, it will be a hotly contested tournament.
