France are the defending 2018 Fifa World Cup champions. Italy won the 2021 European Championship while England was the runners-up. The European Championship is always a showcase of the European teams that are in form. Who are the FIFA World Cup 2022 favourites?
Belgium is one of the hot favourites to win the FIFA World Cup 2022. Belgium’s Fifa World Cup 2022 draw in Group F will see them play against Canada, Morocco, and Croatia in the first group stage. Belgium’s Fifa World Cup history is colourful. They have featured in 14 tournaments. Belgium played in two World Cup semi-finals but they are still searching for their first Fifa World Cup title.

With key players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, and Dries Mertens in the team, they can beat any team on a day. Eden Hazard, Wout Faez, Dante Venzair, and Youri Tielemans can also have a big impact when they must defend a lead. Belgium has an easier road in the group stages than most. They should be able to beat Canada, Morocco, and Croatia to go through to the Final 16 at the top of their group. The final team of players will be announced six weeks before the tournament starts.
Another team that is playing excellent soccer at the moment is Argentina. Under the captaincy of Lionel Messi, they qualified for the 2022 Fifa World Cup by winning all their group qualifying games. Argentina also won the 2021 Copa America cup. This was Argentina’s first major competition win in 28 years. Argentina is drawn into Group C for the 2022 World Cup. They play against Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and Poland in the group stages. Mexico has always entertained the supporters in the World Cups and should be the toughest match for Argentina in the group stages. Poland have Robert Lewandowski, who can win a match all on his own.
Argentina’s FIFA World Cup 2022 team will be finalized later during the year. Argentina’s team manager for the 2022 World Cup is Lionel Scaloni. He managed to build a very strong squad around Lionel Messi, who is an exceptional player and captain. Argentina won the FIFA World Cup for the second time in 1986 with Diego Maradonna. Argentina’s FIFA World Cup 2022 dreams are placed fully on Lionel Messi’s head. With the team having great shape and confidence, Argentina has a great chance of winning the World Cup for the third time.
Brazil have always been one of the favourites at the Fifa World Cup finals. Looking at the qualities of the individual players in Brazil’s Fifa World Cup team suggests that they will have a great chance of being the victors in 2022. Brazil finished on top of the CONMEBOL qualifying stage with 17 unbeaten games in the campaign. This indicates that Brazil’s FIFA World Cup 2022 team is combining well and is in top form. Brazil has lifted the Fifa World Cup five times but haven’t won soccer’s highest accolade since 2002.
Neymar remains one of soccer’s best-attacking players. This year he will be assisted by ViniciusJr, Gabriel Jesus, Raphinha, Roberto Firmino, Antony, and Rodrygo as options for the coach. Agenor Leonardo Bacchi, also known as Tite, is Brazil’s coach. In the midfield, Brazil has Casemiro and Fabinho, and as goalkeepers, Alisson and Ederson are two of the best.
Brazil has drawn Group G for the 2022 Fifa World Cup group stage. With them in Group G are Serbia, Switzerland, and Cameroon. Switzerland drew with Brazil in their previous World Cup meeting, and Cameroon can outplay any team on its day. Brazil should get past these hurdles with the form that they are in. Brazil is a big favorite to lift the World Cup in 2022.
England is coming into the 2022 Fifa World Cup ranked number five in the world. England won the competition once in 1966. England is a very popular team in the competition but failed to live up to expectations in the last few years. England has top players in the team doing exceptionally well in the English Premier League. Gareth Southgate is the team’s manager, and it is his responsibility to help the players into an unbeatable team. England came close to winning a second World Cup in their 2018 campaign, but they lost to Croatia in the Semi-final. England’s FIFA World Cup 2022 draw is in group B. They play against Iran, the USA, and either Ukraine, Wales, or Scotland in the group stages.
England’s FIFA World Cup 2022 team will be captained by Harry Kane. He is a formidable striker. He will be well supported by Mason Mount, Declan Rice, Luke Shaw and Jordan Pickford. Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford, and Bukayo Saka will also be on the front line of the English attack. Their first game in the 2022 Fifa World Cup is against Iraq. England are one of the main favourites to Win the 2022 Fifa World Cup with this great team.
France are the defending champion in this Fifa World Cup. France also won the coveted trophy in 1998. France qualified for the Fifa World Cup 2022 by being top of UEFA qualifiers in Group D. In their qualifying campaign France was undefeated, scoring 18 goals and conceding only three. France’s Fifa World Cup 2022 draw is in group D. The other teams in Group D are Denmark, Tunisia, and the winner of Peru versus Australia or the United Arab Emirates.

Didier Deschamp is the coach for the France Fifa World Cup 2022 campaign. France’s Fifa World Cup 2022 team has brilliant players in every position. Players like Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema, Paul Bogma, Raphael Varane, and Benjamin Pavard will have a huge impact in every match they play.
