Who Will Lift The Trophy? Top Six Contenders For The 2022 FIFA World Cup

Top Six Contenders for the 2022 FIFA World Cup

32 teams, 64 matches, 1 trophy; the world’s most awaited football competition
is all set to take place in Qatar, the first country in the middle-east to host the
FIFA World Cup.

As football fans worldwide gear up to witness the top players compete, speculations are in order as to who will become world champions. The top six contenders likely to get global glory in the 2022 FIFA World Cup are: 

Brazil #1

Having won the World Cup title five times, more than any other nation in the world, Brazil is one of the topmost contenders likely to take the trophy home. Neymar, Gabriel Jesus & Vinicius Junior have all had remarkable seasons so far in their respective leagues. Apart from such great attackers, Brazil has two of the world’s best goalkeepers, Alisson & Ederson.

Thiago Silva is three times world cup participant, making up a strong defence for the team. Brazil will be tough to beat on the field with such strong armour. No wonder it’s the most favourite when it comes to Africa FIFA ranking 2022.

Argentina #2

With their 35-match unbeaten run, Argentina is in great form for FIFA 2022, making it second in line in the FIFA rankings 2022. This could be Lionel Messi’s last chance to win the world cup, after losing the 2014 FIFA World Cup to Germany by a solitary goal.

With players the likes of Paulo Dybala, Lautaro Martinez, Angel Di Maria, Rodrigo De Paul, Leandro Paredes, Alexis Mac Allister, Cristian Romero, and Lisandro Martinez, Argentina could end its 36-year wait to bring home the prestigious trophy.

France #3

The French team is defending champions, and thus an obvious choice to be included in the top FIFA rankings 2022. After lifting the 2018 FIFA World Cup, France will be eager to bag the title this time as well.

France also won the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League but was beaten in the Round 16 at Euro 2020. With star players such as Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele, Olivier Giroud, Christopher Nkunku, France is a serious contender. But having won only one of its last 6 matches, the defending world champions will have to step up to fulfil their lofty aim of bagging the FIFA World Cup twice in a row.  

Spain #4

Spain may not have the same team it used to have from 2008-12 consisting of some of the world’s best players, but it does boast of young talent with the likes of Gavi & thus, has the potential to bag the trophy. Having won the FIFA World Cup in 2000, the Spaniards are well acquainted with what it takes to win the title.

Under the leadership of captain Sergio Busquets, who played an integral part in the squad that won the 2010 World Cup, the younger players could prove to be world champions in Qatar. 

England #5

England comes with experience after making it to the World Cup semi-finals in 2018 and the final of Euro 2021. With one of the best strikers in the world, Harry Kane & star players like Raheem Sterling, Declan Ricem, & Jordan Henderson, the team poses a formidable challenge to its opponents.

Gareth Southgate guided England to the semi-finals in Russia four years ago & the finals of the Euro 2020. If he’s able to bring the team together & leverage the unique strength of each player, England could bag the title once again after 56 years. 

Germany #6

Germany seems to be the sixth strongest contender in the ongoing rankings of FIFA 2022. With its sensational performance in Group J of the UEFA qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup, the German team is a fierce rival.

The team features the perfect blend of youth & experience with established national players such as Thomas Müller, Antonio Rüdiger, and Joshua Kimmich as well as young talents like Armel Bella Kotchap and Youssoufa Moukoko. As a four times World Cup Champion, Germany would intend to lift the trophy & tie with Brazil as the nation to win the title the greatest number of times.
