Who Will Win FIFA World Cup 2022? The FIFA World Cup 2022 is set to kick off on 21st November and as we all know, it will be hosted in Qatar. In every World Cup, there is a set of ‘favorite’ teams who are expected to do well in the tournament. These are generally the teams that exude tremendous form ahead of the FIFA World Cup. Similarly, there are also some ‘Underdog teams’ every year. In this article, we are going to talk about the favorites of FIFA World Cup 2022 and predict the winner of the much anticipated Quadrennial tournament.

It must be emphasized here that all the teams mentioned above have already qualified for the 2022 World Cup and we are not considering the teams that are set to play in the Playoffs for Qualification (Like Portugal and Italy). 

Now let us consider that out of these 8 teams, only the 4 best and most in-form teams qualify for the Semifinals. 

Betting apps in the Indian market are putting out attractive offers on predicting the World Cup winner and enjoying the live matches using streaming features. Many Indian football betting apps have already predicted the winning odds and it seems that Brazil, France, and Argentina are in a neck-to-neck competition to lift the trophy this season.

We Are Predicting The Following Four Semi-Finalists:-

  1. Brazil
  2. Argentina
  3. Spain
  4. England 

Let us now talk about our semi-finalists in detail. 


Brazil was the first team to qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2022 (after of course the hosts Qatar). It is not unknown that they have won the most number of World Cup trophies in footballing history and are undoubtedly synonymous with the sport itself. Brazil has one of the most star-studded national squads across the globe and with the form they are currently in, Brazil will be a true force in the upcoming 2022 World Cup.

Argentina – The only team that has been able to get the better of the Brazilian national team in recent years, is Lionel Scaloni’s Argentina. They defeated the Selecao in the final of the Copa World Cup 2021 at their home ground and created history by winning the prestigious trophy.

The current Argentina team is probably the best they had in a span of almost a decade and with the team, they are currently in, this is probably their best shot at winning the title for the 3rd time in history.

The Spanish national squad will probably be the youngest in the tournament in terms of average age. Under the guidance of their newly appointed manager Luis Enrique, they made unimaginable improvements which are well visible in their recent performances in big tournaments, i.e, Euro 2020 and Nations League.

They lost to Italy in Euro 2020’s semi-finals through penalties and to France in the Nations League final. They will definitely be a much more perfect team by the time they kick off their FIFA World Cup 2022 campaign.

In all of the last few competitions that England has participated in, they have been denied victory at the final phases in the most disappointing fashion. They lost to the underdogs Croatia in the Semi-final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and to Italy in the Final of Euro 2020 despite giving a staggering performance in the entire tournament. They have the necessary strength and chemistry required to challenge the trophy. 

It is hard to predict which two teams out of the above four will qualify for the finals if it does take place as Brazil, Argentina, and Spain are equally deserving of the spot. Keeping solely the recent forms in mind, we pick Argentina and Spain as the finalists.

Final Prediction:

We predict that Argentina is going to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup. It will be a fitting end to Lionel Messi’s decorated career and in terms of a great commentator, ‘serves footballing justice’ to the God of football. Keeping the emotions aside, Argentina is arguably the best national team in the world right now from the perspective of a purist. 

It is a well-established fact that you can not expect ‘beautiful football’ from South American nations and Argentina does not offer you that. But Lionel Messi’s men know what it takes to win a match and they will use exactly that formula to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
