There are already 12 countries from UEFA who are representatives in the 2022 World Cup. There is still one more ticket that will be up for grabs to appear in Qatar later this year.
The two most recent teams to secure tickets to the 2022 World Cup are Portugal and Poland. The two teams have just won the 2022 World Cup play-off final, Wednesday (30/3/2022) early morning WIB.
Portugal beat North Macedonia with a score of 2-0 in the final duel of the Play-off Path C 2022 World Cup Qualifiers in the European zone. Played at the Estadio do Dragao, Portugal appeared dominant for 90 minutes. Fernando Santos’ defense is solid, counter-attacks are also effective.
Bruno Fernandes scored two Portuguese goals in both halves (32′, 65′). Portugal played effectively, attacking and defending tactics were managed properly.
This victory ensures Portugal’s move to the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar later. This result is very important for Cristiano Ronaldo et al.
Meanwhile, Poland won the 2022 World Cup ticket after beating Sweden 2-0 at the Silesian Stadium.
Given that the duel is only held in one leg, it is not surprising that the two countries insisted on winning. The duel was quite tough, where there were four fouls that occurred in the first six minutes.
Poland’s winning goals were scored by Robert Lewandowski and Piotr Zielinski, respectively.
The European continent has the right to send 13 representatives to the 2022 World Cup. One remaining slot will be contested by Wales against the winner of the match between Scotland and Ukraine. The duel is still postponed because Ukraine is still in conflict due to the Russian invasion.
