There is little doubt Belgium will be a major contender, with Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, and Hazard remaining major threats to opposing sides at the forthcoming 2022 World Cup. After their disappointing run at the 2016 and 2020 European Championship, Belgium are hoping to make it to the 2022 World Cup shortly, with the majority of their team being at their peak, them having some of the world’s most prized players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku. Belgium’s international soccer squad is filled with world-class players. From 1982 through 2002, Belgium’s national football team qualified for six straight FIFA World Cups, reaching beyond the first round five times.

Despite the lack of silverware for their national team, world-class players are confident they could emerge as a serious contender at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The England national team are third favourites to win the 2022 World Cup, behind France (2018) and Brazil. A semifinal exit in 2018 and final-day defeat in 2020 Euros has already made it the best run of form in the history of the England national team, and scanning through the roster of names hoping to get on a plane to Qatar; it is possible to argue this is Englands best-ever team.

Belgium is a football nation, varied, harmonious, and prosperous at its best. There are huge expectations surrounding Belgium, a team made up of star players known as a golden generation for a few years now, but its only tangible result was a third-place finish in the 2018 World Cup. From Romelu Lukaku’s birth in 1993 to his debut with the senior side at 16 in 2010, Belgium had appeared at just one European Cup in 2000, when they qualified automatically as joint hosts.

The competition will be held in the Middle East in Qatar. Qatar won the 2010 Sepp Blatter-awarded bid by defeating the United States, South Korea, Japan, and Australia. Later, we learned that two FIFA Executive Committee members had their voting privileges stopped due to claims that they would take payment in exchange for votes. In order to cope with the intense heat that Qatar suffers in June and July and prevent any potential health problems, this World Cup is being held during our winter months for the first time.

A final opportunity for Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Back on the most incredible platform of them all is Kylian Mbappé. Brazil is seeking a record-breaking sixth victory. After the qualification round ended, anticipation is growing for one of the most widely awaited World Cups in recent memory, in Qatar, both for reasons off the field and those on it.
