More about the FIFA 2022 World Cup
This year’s World Cup is going to be quite different from the previous ones for several reasons: In addition to being held in Qatar, where the culture, social restrictions and even costs are very different, it will be the first time that there will be the possibility of seeing more than just one game a day.
It is also the first time that the competition does not take place during the summer months, because of Qatar’s climate.
Although there are fewer stadiums in Qatar than in any other World Cup in the last 40 years, an exorbitant 200 billion euros were spent to prepare the necessary structures for the events, making it the most expensive World Cup ever.
Qatar’s Extreme Heat
Even though the stadiums were either built from scratch or renovated to minimize the impact of the sun thanks to their orientation, the truth is that the heat could prove to be a problem for the teams during the FIFA Worldcup 2022.
However, the organization has done everything in it’s power to ensure that all events will take place under a controlled environment, with gigantic air conditioning systems developed with the latest technology.
Therefore, the well-known breaks for hydration during the games are not foreseen.
What will certainly be a difficult obstacle to overcome by all national teams, will be the fact that they will have to train in training centers referenced to them, close to their hotels, and never in the stadiums where the events will take place.
World Cup Calendar 2022 | So many events in such little time
The competition starts on the 20th of November and ends on the 18th of December, which makes it the most concentrated World Cup ever, with three days less than the previous one, held in Russia. Therefore, there will be fewer gaps between games in both phases.
This factor is important to take into account, since, in European football, the 2022/23 season will be divided in half, with an interruption of a month and a half. Furthermore, the European competitions will also have a later ending this year.
The inevitable rush thanks to the short duration of the 2022 World Cup and the small number of stadiums available means that, unfortunately, the national teams will have very little preparation time, which, at a management level, can possibly be a problem.
Players to watch out for
32 national teams will be competing in Qatar 2022. Every team will have 26 players in their ranks to choose, and here are some players you should keep an eye out for:
Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal
Even though Portugal’s all time top scorer might be slowing down a bit on his performance due to his 37 years of age, Cristiano Ronaldo is still a force to be reckoned with at the front of the goal.
He is, without a doubt, a super creative player that has a lot of freedom to roam around tradicional positions, and has scored an impressive 117 times for his national team.
If Ronaldo can keep his head out of his recent issues with Manchester United, we are sure we’ll be seeing him score a few more for sure.
Harry Kane, England
Two goals away from equaling Wayne Rooney’s 53 goals as England’s all-time top scorer, Harry Kane has averaged a goal per World Cup game, which is quite impressive.
Kane is a solid all-round player, and works comfortably as a solo striker or in central midfield. This being said, referees will be watching out for his tendency to back into defenders jumping for a ball in the box, which often sends the defender to the floor.
Robert Lewandowski, Poland
Although no one is expecting Poland to do exceptionally well in the World Cup, the same can not be said for Robert Lewandowski, the 34 year old veteran who has scored 18 times in his first 19 games for Barcelona.
Lewandowski has been Germany’s top scorer for seven seasons and scored 41 goals in the 2020/21 season alone. Similarly to Ronaldo, he prioritizes hard work and discipline in his pursuit of greatness.
Fabinho’s robust style makes him one of the best defensive midfielders in the sport, although he will not, most likely, appear on the score sheet at this World Cup.
This being said, he can drop down to a centre-back when needed, and has such great vision of game play that he is known for winning possession and recycling balls, turning threats into new attacks. And that’s why we are including him in this list.
Hakim Ziyech, Morocco
If Morocco can make it out of Group F, we are sure it will be mostly due to Hakim Ziyech, the Chelsea winger, known as “The Wizard” while at Ajax.
His best features are his accuracy, speed, dribbling, technical wonderment and stellar free-kicks.
His speed means he can lose opponents and create his own chances, with 17 goals for Morocco under his belt. Furthermore, watch out for his assists, especially with moves starting way out wide on the right, playing pinpoint passes to teammates on diagonal runs.
Lionel Messi, Argentina
Lionel Messi, known by some as the “PlayStation footballer”, has broken many records in Europe and won seven Ballon d’Or awards. He is, obviously, one to watch for, given that his nickname comes from the fact that he has an almost unreal skill of appearing like he’s hard-coded by a computer programmer.
With an impressive 75 goals scored for Brazil’s national team, Neymar can play as a striker, or on the wing, or in midfield.
The brazilian player has many skills under his belt: His speed, and all the tricks and flicks you could hope for. This being said, expect to see plenty of physical challenges against him, as well as him making the most of each one, diving and rolling around on the pitch in his much known dramatic fashion.
Kylian Mbappe, France
Even though Mbappe is only 23 years old, he has already scored 28 goals for France’s national team. He is a forward who can play on either wing because of his both-footedness.
His versatility means he not only provides chances and assists for his teammates, especially coming from the right, but also leaves his opponents bewildered due to his explosive acceleration and a sudden change of pace and direction.
This World Cup will be an incredible stage for the prodigious Kylian Mbappe to show he is, indeed, one of the best players in the world.
