This year it is time for the world cup in football, and we could not be more excited! This year’s world cup has gotten a lot of attention already, due to the place it will be played. Qatar is the host country for 2022, and many are reacting to FIFAs choice to use them. However, the cup will still be played, and there are a lot of matches to look forward to!
When there is time for the world cup in football, it is also time to bet. Betting on football is very popular, and many are choosing to do it as a way to make each and every match much more exciting. You can bet online and look up sports news to make it easier to guess the results. When there is a large cup like the world cup, you can bet on who will win it all at the beginning, and you can play on the results of multiple matches at once, in order to get crazy odds. This cup opens up for teams from all over the world, so you might want to cheer on your own team. If they are not participating, you can bet on someone else.
The men’s team from France will be this year’s defending champions. They won the World Cup in 2018 when Russia hosted. They were also the runner-up in 2006 and came in third in both 1986 and 1958. This is undoubtedly a great team, with many star players. Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé, Karim Benzema, and N’Golo Kanté are some of the names you should be on the lookout for. These have impressed greatly and have all been named French Player of the Year. The French national team has been qualified a total of 16 times before in the history of the World Cup.
The little country in Scandinavia impressed everyone during the EURO cup last year, making their way to the semi-finals, where they sadly lost 2-1 against England. This was however both an impressive and unexpected long and successful journey in the EURO cup, as they almost lost their team captain, Christan Eriksen, who collapsed on the field, and could not continue in the tournament. In 1998 they came to the semi-finals of the world cup, which is their previous best performance in the cup. We have great expectations for the team this fall and winter and think they are going to perform well in the matches. They are already on a good path, as they are the winners of the UEFA Group F.
Whenever we are talking about teams to cheer on during the world cup, we have to mention Brazil. They have certainly made their mark on the football world, and have won the world cup in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, and 2002. Neymar jr., Ederson, and Allison are some of the players we are excited to see on the field when Brazil is playing. The team won The South American section of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification, CONMEBOL. They have been qualified a total of 22 times in the World Cup through the years.
To say that we are excited about the World Cup will be an understatement. This year will be different in many ways. The tournament is usually held in the summer months, but this year it will run from Monday, November 21, until Sunday, December 18, ending right before Christmas. There have also been some switches in the qualification due to the situation in Russia. However, we are hoping for a thrilling and exciting world cup!
