Very Early Favorites To Win The Qatar 2022 World Cup Title

Very Early Favorites To Win The Qatar 2022 World Cup Title

With the 2022 FIFA Qatar 2022 World Cup one year away from starting, thirteen teams, including the hosts Qatar have already punched their ticket for international football’s biggest competition. Football facts pundits from around the world have even started to predict which out of the already qualified teams look like the best candidates to have a strong run in the upcoming tournament, where of course, winning the World Cup title is right up at the helm of importance above everything.

Now, while thinking about a team like the hosts Qatar making a strong case for a World Cup title run might be a bit of a stretch, other teams look more than poised to show everyone why they are considered amongst the top favourites by football experts all around. With that said, we bring you our picks for very early favourites to win the Qatar 2022 World Cup title.


First on our list and all football experts’ lists is Brazil. Led by the likes of Neymar Jr., Vinicius Jr., Lucas Paqueta, Gabriel Jesus, Casemiro, Allison Becker, Rafinha, and a plethora of other top-tier players from some of the best teams across Europe and their domestic league, it’s not that hard to see why they would be pitted as top favorites to win the upcoming World Cup title.

Their qualifying run in South America has seen them completely demolish all competition, with eleven wins and two ties, all while scoring 27 goals and only allowing four. Now, when speaking of a team like Brazil, using the term “golden generation” is really up to debate, given that this is a team that has won five World Cup titles and has had some of the best lineups in football history, but given the fact that this generation of players is still reeling from their past faux pas, especially in 2014, it’s a given that they will enter this tournament with a clear goal in mind, winning it all.


Seconds on our list is France, the reigning and defending World Cup title winners from 2018. With France the equation is quite simple if it’s not broken, why try to fix it? This generation of players, that has kept together since their win in 2018, with the addition of certain young, up and coming players that have helped the team progress even more in their dominance across Europe, look like they don’t seem to have a problem with the idea of repeating their 2018 title run once again in 2022.

With players like Kylian M’bappe, Antoine Griezmann, N’Golo Kante, Karim Benzema, who since being welcomed back into the French national team has made an immediate impact, and youngsters like defenders Jules Kounté and Dayot Upamecano, this team does not have any problem with being pitted as favorites to win the title. The problem here is for their future opposing teams, especially when thinking about how to stop their incisive attack.


If I personally had to back a team who looks like they have the most truthful and just claim for a strong title race, I would look no further than Gareth Southgate’s England team. This team, who before was always seen as the best team that could never achieve any real greatness, has now become one of the biggest threats in world football. Their mix of experienced, battle-proven players with a myriad of young, explosive footballers, all wanting to not just show up, but ball out for their national squad, makes England one of the strongest teams around.

Coach Gareth Southgate has managed to turn this team into an actual title contender, with their performances at the 2018 World Cup and this year’s Euro tournament as clear signs of what’s to come when Qatar 2022 rolls around. While before, betting on England was more a thing of passion than a strong, secure bet, now, going with England appears to be almost flawless.


I think we can all agree that Qatar 2022 will be Lio Messi’s last chance at trying to go for World Cup gold, which would help him finally cement his status as the greatest football player in history, right? Well, after finally winning a continental title with Argentina, when they won the Copa America tournament earlier in the year, it felt like not only Messi but all of Argentina finally got a gigantic load of their back and were able to now focus on what’s next. So what is next for this team? Easy, going for the gold in Qatar 2022.

Argentina has one of the most leveled and composed rosters in all of world football, with a great generation of players filling up every position in the squad to perfection and above all, an attacking core with options that just read like a goal-scoring fiesta. If Argentina can rally around their leader, Messi, one last time, like they did to win the Copa America title, it’s hard to not want to see them go all the way. Call it the romantic bet in the upcoming tournament.


Yes, Spain, but why Spain you ask? Simple, while the Spanish team, led by coach Luis Enrique have managed to stay afloat and hold their status as one of the most important teams in the landscape of world football, it’s also very true that they have been going through a small rut of sorts. But it appears that Luis Enrique and his team have managed to find their spunk right when they needed it.

Led by a new, exciting generation of young players like Pedri, Ansu Fati, Dani Olmo, Gavi, Eric Garcia, and Ferran Torres to name a few, alongside bonafide veterans like Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, and David De Gea, this team could end up quietly surprising everyone around and making their way to another World Cup title win.
