The World Cup doesn’t happen very often. So, it’s understandable that there’d be so much hype and excitement when it finally rolls around. What’s more, considering how fierce the selection process even to cut is, it isn’t hard to see each of the 32 international teams in the tournament as significant contenders for the title. Specific teams naturally draw more attention to themselves in this competition. Whether due to their long history of outstanding performance or the amazing array of talent they have access to, these teams often promise a fantastic and entertaining time. We’ll be highlighting some of our favorites now.
France In 2022 World Cup
Kylian Mbappe. Paul Pogba. Antoine Griezmann. Benjamin Pavard. Kante N’golo. Hugo Lloris. The list of exemplary players on this site is almost endless. Let’s not forget that these guys are the sitting champions after they claimed their second World Cup in 2018. Many players who made that victory a reality will also be in this campaign. Didier Deschamps, in particular, would be looking to etch his name in stone and join Vittorio Pozzo to become only the second coach in history to win the FIFA World Cup twice. How he’ll use the vast clutch of resources at his disposal to meet those ends is something that’ll be very entertaining to see.
Brazil In 2022 World Cup
On the World Cup scene, Brazil holds two outstanding records at the moment. First, they’re the only team to have won the competition five (5) times. On a side note, they’ve also claimed the second, third, and fourth-place finish two times each! It effectively makes them the most successful national football team of all time. Their second record is that they’re the only team to have featured consistently in all the World Cup tournaments ever hosted. With Ederson, Alex Sandro, Richarlisson, Firmino, and Neymar Junior likely in the squad this time, they might add to their trophy tally come November.
Argentina In 2022 World Cup
With talisman Lionel Messi featuring in the Argentina 2022 World Cup squad, we can certainly expect a lot of good times when the tournament finally starts. Messi, who’s on the wrong side of 30, may very well be the 6-time Ballon d’Or winner’s last grab at the World Cup. Will he be able to make the most of it? We think that’s very likely because he’ll likely have an excellent supporting cast around him this time. With resources like Mac Allister, Di Maria, Otamendi, and Juan Musso to call on, Messi might lead his team to victory just like Diego Maradona once did.
England In 2022 World Cup
The Three Lions have recently had more than their fair share of woes. They got very close in Euro 2020, yet Southgate’s men let it slip through their fingers. But skipper Harry Kane and the likes of Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling, and Bukayo Saka are sure to enter the World Cup in November with a vengeance and hungry to make a point. Regarding favorites, England might surprise the world for good this time.
