FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022


Recommended Posts

The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will be played from 20 November to 18 December in Qatar. It will be the 22nd edition of the competition, and the first played in the Arab world. 

My prediction to win, I will pick realistically, not by emotion -> République Française. 

Here are the groups:

It appears he is playing, not at risk. 

An inside look at Canada’s World Cup soccer group: Belgium, Croatia, Morocco:

1. vs Belgium (November 23rd)

FIFA ranking No. 2

Last time vs. Canada Won 2-0, 1989

Stars Kevin De Bruyne (Man City), Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea)

Belgian soccer’s golden age is nearing an end with little to show for it. Roberto Martinez’s side will be desperate to change that. The Belgians topped the FIFA rankings for the fourth consecutive year in 2021, while Canada was named most improved side. This match will be a measuring stick.

2. vs Croatia (November 27th)

FIFA ranking No. 16

Stars Luka Modric (Real Madrid), Ivan Perisic (Inter Milan)

Croatia has never played against Canada and is four years removed from reaching the World Cup final in Russia. The squad was knocked out in the round of 16 at last year’s European championship, however. Canada’s chances will rest on using speed and physicality to push an older Croatian lineup. This match might very well decide whether Canada advances.

3. vs Morocco (December 1st)

FIFA ranking No. 24

Last time vs. Canada Won 4-0, 2016

Stars Achraf Hakimi (Paris Saint-Germain), Tarik Tissoudali (Genk)

This will be the Moroccans’s second consecutive World Cup appearance. They tied Spain in 2018, and narrowly lost to Portugal and Iran. The Canadians should see more of the ball in the most winnable of their three matches, but will have to be clinical and opportunistic to take three points.

What a game to tell generations (2014): 

Germany 7 - 1 Brazil 


and what are the English fans going to do, I don't think they will be allowed to party as in Europe: 

What a group that is: England, Iran, USA and Wales.

No party.

Qatar abruptly reversed its beer policy for the World Cup, and will sell only a nonalcoholic option at stadiums, an official familiar with the plan said. The move will complicate FIFA’s $75 million sponsorship agreement with Budweiser.

Kickoff is at 11 a.m. ET today. 

Qatar vs Ecuador. 

As host, Qatar was guaranteed a spot in the 32-team field.

The Qataris, who are ranked No. 50 in the world, are making their inaugural appearance in the World Cup. This year's tournament is the first World Cup to be held in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, Ecuador advanced to the 2022 World Cup by finishing fourth in the difficult CONMEBOL, behind Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. The Ecuadorians are No. 44 in the world.

@August1991I was there, I travelled here. The day of this video. 

Ramenez la coupe à la maison. 

Allez Les Bleus. Allez Les Bleus.

At 1:48 you will see a humble man, someone which shows that eventually hard work pays off.

For the football fanatics out there which know Kante's story.

France have been poor recently.

Brazil and Argentina have been on the best form leading into the championship but after England's opening game today You shouldn't bet against it finally ''coming home''.

Belgium have a lot to prove and do have the players to go all the way this time. For some of them, this will be their last chance.

Soccer is not a particularly physical game but I wouldn’t want to have to out-muscle Croatia. The 2018 finalists are still a physically strong team. Our centre halves may be seriously tested by bruising encounters in the box.

Don’t press too high against these guys or get too tight on their full-backs. They’ll be looking to counter-attack.

GO CANADA GO.

Tough first game against Belgium but if Saudi Arabia can beat Argentina and Japan can beat Germany you can do it.

Is unfortunate 1-0. The tie in the other game is good and keeps our chances. Croatia - Morroco. 0-0.

So an upcoming match in Group B features two nations with a terrible history of conflict…and also US vs Iran. Frankly I’d be worried to face Wales as an England forward. Anyone who thinks soccer is an effete sport should ask the Irish player Seamus Coleman who suffered this injury against Wales:

Canada vs Croatia at 11 AM

Canada head coach John Herdman described his squad as “light, bright and clear, ready to go” into what effectively is a ‘must-win’ game.

Another interesting game at 2PM is Spain - Germany. Germany is at the bottom of their group with 0 points.
