Lionel Messi (Argentinian)
Messi’s great opportunity in Qatar 2022 represents the possibility of fulfilling his dreams and feeding the team that supports him, a team that has not yet been able to achieve the trophy he longs for more than anything, despite the difference in other editions.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Portuguese)
Portugal’s perfect attendance on the field in Funchal, where Ronaldo was born, has secured their fifth consecutive qualification to the World Cup. Prior to Ronaldo’s presence, Portugal had only qualified for three World Cups in their entire history. CR7’s presence could potentially establish a new era for Portuguese football. After defeating North Macedonia 2-0 in the final playoffs of the UEFA qualifiers, Portugal promises to be one of the main contenders in the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
Kylian Mbappé (France)
Holding it accountable, the responsibility will now be carried. As a global star, he definitely established himself in that tournament in Moscow, competing in the final where Croatia was defeated 4-2, and lifted the title in 2018 after defeating his teammates. Alongside many of his teammates, Mbappé will have a great chance to retain the title, being a crucial part of a France team filled with stars.
Two decades ago, they were denied the title, but they are the most successful champions in history. With a prestigious team by their side, they have a strong chance of delivering the hexacampeonato to the Brazilian fans. Numerous speculations, including statements made by the player himself, indicate this possibility. Could the upcoming World Cup in Qatar signal the conclusion of the Brazilian star’s illustrious career?
Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium)
De Bruyne, el mediocampista del Manchester City, se caracteriza por su juego inteligente, rápido y punzante, algo que se refleja en sus 91 partidos disputados en la selección, donde ha aportado 45 asistencias y 24 goles. Llegará al Medio Oriente en busca del oro, poniendo un broche de oro al ciclo que maduró en Rusia en 2018 y se desarrolló en Brasil en 2014, sin ser uno de los máximos candidatos, pero como estandarte de una generación belga.
Joshua Kimmich (Germany)
Germany, always a candidate, will not only be an animadora but also a seeker of revenge, as they were eliminated in the first phase when the rematch happened in Russia 2018. Their pride is wounded, but they will focus on the middle of the field, where the engines are, in order to pay attention to one of the halves of the court in Qatar.
Dušan Vlahović (Republic of Serbia)
The man born in Belgrade will try to demonstrate why he is one of the most sought-after players in the world, surrounded by a talented generation of Serbian players, he promises to be a threat with his goal-scoring ability and fast strength, and he will make his debut in the World Cup for Juventus’ forward.
Robert Lewandowski (Poland)
Ideal challenge will be Qatar, that’s why that pending debt will be settled, Lewandowski will settle that debt for the unique experience. In a World Cup, he didn’t score and defend the colors of his country, so that’s why it’s not almost everyone in that unique competition. But because he has scored goals in all the tournaments he has played with Poland’s jersey, he remains to be written and discovered as one of the best forwards in the world.
Harry Kane (England)
The Euro 2020 and the 2018 World Cup, a fourth place and a second place respectively, had to settle for a team that came close to glory in the last two major tournaments and has the great opportunity to improve their performance alongside Qatar. If not personal records and added satisfactions, it will be the chance in Qatar, where Wayne Rooney set the record with 53 goals to surpass the mark of the Three Lions, the historic highest scoring national team, only 4 goals separate Harry Kane.
Luis Suárez (Uruguayan)
Uruguay would be a valid candidate to stay with the Cup, but it would also be valid to claim that no team that crosses paths with the national team would have an easy time. In the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Uruguay will have its fourth participation, and one of its main values is being the top scorer. In this tournament, he will want to maintain his extremely high average of goals and be the top scorer in World Cup history, just behind Thomas Müller and alongside Cristiano Ronaldo. With at least 10 goals in the tournament, he will barely be one of the 12 men on the list with the least goals in World Cup history, and he will want to be the top scorer in World Cup history, just behind Thomas Müller and alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
