FIFA World Cup 2022
Whilst the World Cup finals do not start for over 1 year, it isn’t that long until the qualifiers for it do. This world cup is going to be the 22nd edition and is scheduled to take place in Qatar, only the second time in Asia and it is also the first time the World Cup will take place outside of May, June or July, as the competition is going to be between the 21st of November and the 18th of December. The games will be played in 8 venues and 5 different cities with 32 nations/teams competing.
England will have to be among the favourites going into the competition. 2 years is a good amount of time for the youth of England to improve greatly, such as: Jaden Sancho, Marcus Rashford, Trent Alexander Arnold etc; this does not only apply to the 1st team as there is also a golden generation coming through the Under 21 and Under 18 team. With one of the most devastating attacks in the world containing Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and many others, none of these are at a prime age yet and still have bags of room for improvement. However, England’s defensive capabilities have been questioned and is definitely shaky and so improvements will have to be made in order to really threaten for a World Cup title.
World Cup holders France are young, athletic, promising and are going through a golden generation. Most of the better players in their team are young such as Kylian Mbappe, Upamecano and they have shown absolutely no signs of slowing down in their quality. Under Didier Deschamps, they play highly structured, narrow defensive football, but, as soon as they win the ball back, they explode into a viscous counterattack. I don’t think there would be many surprises if they went on to retain their title.
Germany, who won the world cup in 2014, were really poor in the 2018 world cup and were knocked out in the group stage. However, since then, there has been a resurgence and youth and quality has been on the rise through their ranks. Chelsea players Havertz and Werner, alongside half of the Bayern Munich side, have constructed a devastating attacking side.
Belgium could be an outside shout for the World Cup winners as they are currently seeded as the highest ranking side in the FIFA World Rankings, however, they are an aging squad and in the next two years, players such as Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld will have retired and players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Lukaku, Mertens will all be in their 30’s and might have retired from international football. So I do feel as though Belgium have been fairly unsuccessful during the last 4 years in which should have been their golden years. Saying that, the young players coming though such as Jeremy Doku and Yari Verschaeren are showing huge promise and could be a bright spark for the future.
FIFA World Cup 2022 will be held after Euro 2021.
