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.

5 Strongest Candidate Countries to Win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar

About seven months from now the Qatar 2022 World Cup will begin. In welcoming the 2022 World Cup next November, FIFA has carried out group drawings for the finals of the prestigious four-year event.

The draw for the 2022 World Cup group phase will take place today, Friday (1/4/2022) at 23.00 WIB. Looking at the list of teams that have qualified for the 2022 World Cup, which team has the most chance of winning?

Here are 5 strong candidates for the 2022 World Cup:

1.Argentina

Argentina

Finally, there is the Argentine national team. This may be the last World Cup for Lionel Messi. He has had a difficult season with PSG, but has big ambitions to lead Argentina to glory in the 2022 World Cup.

Messi hopes to gain sweet results in the 2022 World Cup, as he just did with La Albiceleste -the nickname of the Argentine national team- in the 2022 Copa America. Messi’s ambitions will be supported by his teammates who are also quality players.

Yes, Lionel Scaloni has a very good squad. Evidently, Argentina are unbeaten in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. However, they have not been completely dominant. Even so, there was still time to improve his team.

In the group phase, Argentina itself is in Group C. There, they are in a group with Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.

2. Spain

spain

In second place, there is the Spanish national team. Spain has dimmed in the last decade. However, La Furia Roja-the nickname of the Spanish national team-looks tough under the tutelage of Luis Enrique. They made it to the semifinals of Euro 2020 before being eliminated on penalties against Italy.

Spain then advanced to the final of the UEFA Nations League in October 2021. La Furia Roja ended Italy’s 37-match unbeaten run in the semifinals. However, they failed to win the title because they lost to France in the final.

Now, at the 2022 World Cup, Spain is ready to compete again. Their squad is sure to be star-studded with a great mix of experienced and young players. They have plenty of options in midfield from Sergio Busquets, Thiago Alcantara, Fabian Ruiz and Rodri to Pedri and Gavi.

Spain also has a formidable defense and a promising front line. Suffice to say, it will be very interesting to see how Luis Enrique’s men perform at the 2022 World Cup. But in the group stage, they are in a hellish group because they are in the same group as Germany and Japan. One more against the winner of IC playoff 2 (Costa Rica vs New Zealand).

Then there is the England national team. They are seen as one of the forces in the world of football. Unfortunately, England’s trophy count does not reflect the potential they have always had in the squad.

However, England performed well in the last World Cup. They were also outstanding at Euro 2020. England reached the final, despite losing to France.

Gareth Southgate has many world class players in his squad. With the quality and depth of their squad, they could become one of the favorites to win. England itself is in Group B in the 2022 World Cup Group stage. They are in a group with Iran, the United States, and the winners of the Euro playoffs.

3. Brazil

Brazil

Then there is the Brazilian national team. They are arguably the most dominant team in the CONMEBOL 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. They won 14 of the total 17 matches and remained unbeaten in the qualifiers.

This could be Neymar’s last World Cup. Brazil can also compete for the title because it has a squad studded with stars. They have some outstanding forwards like Vinicius Jr and Antony is widely expected to form a deadly attacking trio alongside Neymar.

Brazil have a solid midfield featuring the likes of Casemiro, Fabinho, Fred, Arthur and Lucas Paqueta. Now it is interesting to wait for Brazil’s journey in the 2022 World Cup. They will face Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon in the group G stage.

4. France

France

In fourth place, there is France. They looked staggered at the 2020 European Cup. However, Les Bleus rose in the UEFA Nations League to win the title.

Now, they have ambitions to defend their title at the World Cup. With a squad that is almost the same as the 2018 World Cup, France is the favorite to win. Didier Deschamps still has many world-class players to rely on.

France itself is in Group D at the 2022 World Cup. They are in a group with Denmark, Tunisia, and also IC Playoff 1.

5. Portugal

portugal

The next team that is the favorite to win the 2022 World Cup is Portugal. The Selecao das quinas have to go through a dramatic road to get a position on the pitch of this prestigious event.

Become a favorite team because it has a squad filled with the best world-class players.

Like the tough veteran defender Pepe. Meanwhile, in the middle of Fernando Santos’ team, there are agile and agile players Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva.

5 Star Players Who Will Face Lionel Messi In The 2022 World Cup Group Stage

5 star players who will face Lionel Messi in the 2022 World Cup group stage

Lionel Messi will enter the 2022 World Cup with big ambitions. This event may be Messi’s last chance to win the dream trophy and present it to Argentina.

Last Friday (1/2/2022) FIFA held the draw for the 2022 World Cup. So far, 29 countries have secured a slot in the finals, Qatar, from November 21 to December 18, 2022. Lionel Messi has asked Argentina to be one of them.

Based on the results of the 2022 World Cup group stage draw yesterday, Argentina joined Poland, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia in Group C. On paper, Messi et al. deserve to be superior to other teams.

Even so, football is always full of surprises. There are at least 5-star players who will play against Lionel Messi in the group phase of the 2022 World Cup group stage. Who? Let’s break down,

1. Robert Lewandowski (Poland)

Robert Lewandowski (Poland)

The obvious first name: Robert Lewandowski. Bayern Munich and Poland superstar Lewandowski has been the world’s top striker in recent years.

Lewandowski has proven to be able to guide Poland through tough matches in the 2022 World Cup Qualification play-offs in the European zone. He scored one goal in the final to help Poland beat Sweden (2-0).

Lewandowski’s presence on the field proved to boost Poland’s strength to the top level. Obviously, Lewandowski will be one of the most troublesome opponents for Argentina and Messi.

2. Hirving Lozano (Mexico)

Who does not know the name Hirving Lozano ? The Napoli striker was once one of the sensations of the 2018 World Cup. Lozano played quite well while helping Mexico in the CONCACAF World Cup Qualification zone.

Hirving 'Chucky' Lozano is the most important in Mexico to face lionel messi in world cup 2022

He scored four goals in qualifying, the most of any player. Lozano is known for his speed and foresight to see empty gaps. He will make the line of Argentine defender hassles.

3. Piotr Zielinski

Piotr Zielinski always ready to collaborate with lionel messi

 

Another Napoli player, Piotr Zielinski is one of Poland’s mainstay attackers. He can form a slick combination with Lewandowski. Zielinski scored Poland’s winner over Sweden (2-0) which sent them to the finals World Cup 2022 in Qatar later. He’s a dangerous player if he gets a gap. Zielinski is most comfortable playing on the right-wing. He can provide crosses for Lewandowski, and can also pierce through the middle and shoot.

4. Hector Herrera

Hector Herrera

Hector Herrera was Mexico’s best player at the 2021 Gold Cup. Unfortunately, he failed to present the trophy. Herrera is a fighting midfielder who would be a problem for any team. He can go up and down the field quickly and has high defensive abilities. Playing at Atletico Madrid, Herrera already knows Messi’s style of play and how to prevent it. He could be Mexico’s key to tackling Argentina.

5. Raul Jimenez

Raul Jimenez

Mexico‘s best striker is slowly returning to his best level. Raul Jimenez had been sidelined for several months due to a severe head injury. Recovery from a head injury is not easy, because there must be a sense of trauma. Well, Jimenez started to find his courage in the last few months.

He scored two goals for Mexico in the CONCACAF qualifying event. The World Cup 2022 group stage is still to be played at the end of the year. So Jimenez has plenty of time to reach his best level.
