Which team is most likely to win the World Cup?

Just months away from starting off, this upcoming World Cup is going to be one of the most exciting and biggest tournaments in its history. The defending champion France trails the tournament’s most successful team, and Brazil is on the odds board but the most recent Euro champs Italy were eliminated again after the shocking loss to North Macedonia. Here’s a predicted list of International teams to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, keeping our hopes to see an eventful tournament intact.


1: France 

France is in Group D with Denmark and Tunisia and there’s a potential meeting with Peru on the horizon for the defending champions. And it was almost like in 2018 when they played and won against both the teams of Denmark and Peru and went on to lift the trophy in Russia. After finishing on top of their UEFA qualifying group, France has an absolutely dominant squad with talent all over the pitch. They should have an easy win against Tunisia with heavy potential in their team. With members like Benzema, Kante, Mbappe, and Paul Pogba, the French team is stacked in every position from attacking to the midfielder to even defending. If things go as planned, they find themselves face to face for a quarter-final clash against England and their winning probability becomes really high. It’s not likely for a country to win two World Cups consecutively but it’s still not impossible. 

2: Brazil

Brazil would definitely look to extend their record of five WC tournament victories by winning the World Cup 2022. They are in for a tough competition against teams like Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon in the Group G. But the team is possibly the best South American team that exists right now with superstar players leading it like Neymar and Vinicius Jr. Brazil will stack its hopes for goals on the forward line led by Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar Jr. to end its World Cup drought. The Brazilian team are familiar with three of their group-stage opponents, having been drawn against Switzerland, Serbia and Cameroon across the last two World Cups and fans are rooting for this team to make history at the Qatar stadium once again.



People believe that it’s the time for Brazil to reclaim their throne and now they have the right talent too.

3: England

England has already passed their golden age but the current squad of the English team is a golden generation in itself. There are lots of young talented attackers in the English squad this season and their team morale is all the way up. England is up against USA, Iran and among one of the Euro play-off contenders Ukraine, Scotland or Wales. Their competition against the USA would be a tough one but they could win against it with the current team management, even though if the USA manages to beat England, a sensational social media frenzy is guaranteed. The three lions, on one hand, are full of new generation boosts but if they qualify, winning against all their group competitors, they could face France in the quarter-finals and this will definitely lead to a very tough and rough fixture for the trophy.




The England National Team needs revenge on the world for their loss at the Euro Final. It’s sad how their team is always filled with great talents but they usually fail to achieve the title. All that can change in the mere future.

4: Germany

The 2014 World Cup winners are giants in this game and Hansi Flick’s takeover could be possibly very much present in this World Cup. They would have a bump fight against Spain in the Group E encounters, and other Euro play-off contenders in the same group Costa Rica and New Zealand are also in for a fight no doubt. Germany could win against Japan in the most possible ways. Germany would look to make the best of Joshua Kimmich’s presence in the midfield, with Ilkay Gundogan’s midfield and assistance, who has said the team’s priority is to peak at the tournament. But their major possible threat would be Spain and their potential should pay them off, otherwise, their loss in the group stage could set up a last-16 tie against Belgium.


We all know how Spain has performed in the last few years so it won’t be a very big problem for Hansi and his men.

5: Spain 

Spain falls under the same Group E against Germany, and Japan, along with the winner of the second inter-continental playoff between New Zealand and Costa Rica on June 14 who will join the group later. Spain will complete participating in its 16th FIFA World Cup and this is its 12th successive appearance having not missed a single tournament appearance since 1974. Germany should be their biggest threat in the winning race, with both having almost equally talented sides. Luis Enrique has transformed the Spanish team immensely with almost all new generation successful footballers like Barcelona youngsters Pedri and Gavi and Atletico Madrid’s Koke. Moreno as a striker could be an x-factor in the success of the team this year along with Alvaro Morata leading the attack but we will have to see for the positional roles played by the team members.

6: Portugal

Portugal will face tough competition from three very efficient teams; Ghana, the Korea Republic and Uruguay, in the group H stage. They have the potential to cruise through this group stage to reach the finals but not without a big fight. Their attack is too dangerous, with Cristiano Ronaldo who wants to give his best as well, as it would be most likely his last World Cup. Ronaldo has 115 international goals, the most in men’s football meanwhile Portugal has scored a total of 49 goals in World Cup history itself. As the team reaches Qatar, the skipper will look to increase his lead further as Portugal looks for a half-century of goals and even the attack and defence scene apart from Ronaldo’s contribution to the Portuguese team is evolving lethally.

There is a reason why people are calling it ‘One Last Dance’.

7: Argentina

Argentina could easily accomplish success in the group stage against Mexico, Poland and Saudi Arabia. Argentina qualified for Qatar 2022 after finishing as the runner-up in the CONMEBOL qualifying tournament. It has enjoyed an undefeated qualifying campaign as of now making it the strongest team. Under Lionel Scaloni’s management, the Argentine team won 11 matches and drew six matches out of 17 in the qualifying campaign. However, Poland and Mexico will give tough competition to the team, as both teams have players from the top five European leagues and both have performed well in recent times. Again, the face-off between world football’s two of the best goal scorer Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski in Argentina vs Poland matches is much anticipated. Argentina’s most valuable asset and the G.O.A.T himself, Messi will be playing his fifth and potentially the last World Cup and he would definitely see for striking at any level possible.

If Argentina goes to the final we could expect a face-off between Argentina and any of Brazil, England, Portugal, Belgium or France. But the temptation to see a Messi vs Ronaldo final is always at the top for fans.

8: Belgium

Belgium includes in the group F along with equally talented teams on the other side like Canada, Croatia and Morocco. This whole group stage competition will be a tough one to go through but Belgium has a lot of potential to overcome the pressure and win in the group, although their “golden generation” is disintegrating they can still pose a massive threat through very strong players like Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne, Thorgan Hazard and Youri Tielemans and they keep up the possibility of the Belgium team to go to at least the semifinal stage of the competition. They excelled brilliantly in the qualifiers and often easily win through the group stage.

9: Netherlands

The Group A contender Netherlands will have to face the hosting country Qatar along with Ecuador and Senegal. The Netherlands team was going in a hit-or-miss situation for a long time, they didn’t qualify for the World Cup 2018 but they have been improving recently. Their defence is looking a lot stronger and even managed to get to the round of 16 at Euro 2021, so we could see the Dutch team shine this year as they did previously many teams like they reached the finals in 2010, and in 2014 they reached all the way to semifinals. Big players like Frenkie de Jong, Memphis Depay, Georginio Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk will definitely try to make a big statement in this tournament, so it’ll be very interesting to see this team as a contender make a deep run into the competition.

10: Croatia

Defeating their contender of Group F Belgium, Croatia too could probably make a deep run for the trophy of the 2022 World Cup. Croatia’s World Cup run in 2018 was undoubtedly phenomenal but the team has been struggling a bit. The team is definitely going to miss on players like Mario Mandžukić, Ivan Rakitić, and the effortless goalkeeper Danijel Subašić. However, the Croatian midfield depth is quite commendable with stars like Luka Modric. Modric continues his form and he could lead the gradually weakening team to a success no one saw coming. It won’t be easy but there is still a chance for this to happen.

Every football fan knows that World Cup is the biggest event in football and it takes 11 great men to lift it. You can win any other title with a few extraordinary players in the squad but it’s different for the World Cup. The thing that makes this upcoming competition great is the fear and excitement of our best players playing it for the last time. Each fan of any player wants their favourite to win the title but it’s not easy to do so. Leo got close to doing it while Ronaldo suffers in a less ambitious Portugal side.

We do hope that your favourite wins the title and brings a huge smile to your face.
