Even some of these dark horses were able to beat the big countries in the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

1. Qatar

Qatar

You only have to look at the way Russia hosted the 2018 World Cup to see that the hosts can be a dangerous dark horse. Russia advanced to the last eight of the 2018 World Cup, after eliminating Spain in the round of 16.

Qatar will work hard to try and emulate that achievement, but they are certainly a footballing nation on the rise, despite having little legacy in their footballing history.

It will be interesting to see how Qatar act with their youth team in the 2022 World Cup, if they can talk a lot at the Asian level with their youth team, then they can also be dark horses in the 2022 World Cup, the biggest tournament of football which makes them a First Middle Eastern country to host the World Cup.

2. Denmark

Denmark

FIFA Rating: 9

Arguably one of the most impressive teams during the UEFA qualifying phase, Denmark booked their place with eight wins from eight matches, scoring 27 goals and conceding nil in the process.

Having gone through without dropping points or conceding a goal, coach Kasper Hjulmand said his team were ‘delighted to be the dark horses of the World Cup’.

And not surprising, given Denmark’s fiery move to the semifinals of EURO 2020 last year amid the unsettling events of their opening tournament.

3.USA

FIFA Ranking: 13

The US’s reputation as a leader in sports – from basketball and ice hockey to baseball and athletics – is undeniable.

However, it is ‘football’ that has so far eluded America on the big stage.

The following is a list of the 5 most expensive wonderkids who are ready to enliven the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, summarized from the Transfermarkt website.

1. Vinicius Junior, 21 Years (Brazil) – 100 million euros

Vinicius Junior

After the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid have found a commensurate and younger replacement in Vincius.

His duet with Karim Benzema this season has made Madrid fierce again. Most recently, this deadly duo managed to bring Los Blancos through to the 2021/2022 Champions League semifinals.

Brazil’s attacking line could be the scariest at the 2022 World Cup.

2. Phil Foden, 21 years (England) – 90 million euros

Dominated by young players, the England squad for the 2022 World Cup could be the freshest.

Although most of them are players who have just shined, it doesn’t mean that this generation of The Three Lions is less bite-sized.

One of the potential is Manchester City’s versatile striker, Phil Foden.

Any coach seems to be very lucky to have Foden on his team.

This 21-year-old youth is fluent in playing in many positions, from striker to central midfielder.

3. Pedri Gonzales, 19 years (Spain) – 80 million euros

Pedri was called up to the Spain under-21 squad, Pedri, as a midfield general, will be the pioneer for the Spanish national team to reach its glory again at the World Cup.

4. Jude Bellingham, 18 years (England) – 75 million euros

Apart from Foden, another promising young boy from the England national team is Jude Bellingham.

For the last two seasons Bellingham has caught the world’s attention through his impressive performances at Borussia Dortmund.

5. Pablo Gavi, 17 years (Spain) – 60 million euros

Xavi Hernandez as the current coach of Barcelona, has succeeded in polishing this wonderkid’s talent to make it more shiny.
