The FIFA World Cup is finally here. That time, like clockwork, where we see the best players from every country in the world fighting to be the first has come. In 2022, we have great players who can come out and develop their youth potential.
As we await the announcement of other official officials and the start of the main match between Qatar and Ecuador on November 20, we should examine the ten best players who can expect to find in the World Cup of 2022.
1. Lionel Messi, Argentina
Obviously, Lionel Messi is the first on the list. He is the best player on the planet and this might be his last chance to win the World Cup. At 35, Messi is in his second season at PSG so far with 12 goals and 14 assists in just 18 games. He finally won his Copa America – he just needs the latest prize in Argentina to end his streak . Messi’s club status is yet to be decided after the World Cup, but until that is known, all his focus, energy and heart will be in Qatar.
2. Kylian Mbappé, France
At just 23 years old, Kylian Mbappé is considered the best player in the world right now. After becoming the first teenager to score two goals in the World Cup in France’s victory over Croatia at the 2018 World Cup in Russia (four goals and one assist), Mbappé went from star to star. For PSG this year, he scored 18 goals and provided 5 assists in just 19 games. He will be a central player in France’s attack on Qatar.
3. Kevin De Bruyne, Belgium
As much a passer as a shooter, Kevin De Bruyne is an asset to every team he plays for. In the Belgian team and the Manchester City team, everything goes from De Bruyne first. One of the most amazing midfielders in football, he will be able to put the ball in the net one way or another and he will help Belgium to go to the top of the Gathering F.
4. Neymar, Brazil
Not only is Neymar one of the best players in the World Cup, but Brazil is one of the best teams. Besides that, it is mostly because of Neymar himself. Neymar is in his third World Cup and for PSG he has 15 goals and 12 assists in 19 games. Of course, even without Messi and Mbappé around him, Neymar is a threat. In Brazil, he will play close to the likes of Vinicius Junior, Richarlison and Raphinha. In any case, Neymar will be the focal point of the assault.
5. Karim Benzema, France
Despite France’s exit from Euro 2020, Benzema remains one of the game’s most famous goal scorers. The Double Cross Ballon d’Or winner knows how to act in minutes to catch it and will have a cast around him. Mbappe. Benzema won the Champions League with Real Madrid and will now be in the hunt for the next World Cup title, with France winning in Russia in 2018.
6. Robert Lewandowski, Poland
It’s only halfway through the season, but Lewandowski hasn’t called back, scoring 18 goals in 19 games for Barcelona after leaving Bayern Munich. Obviously, no matter who is around him, Lewandowski will find the net. Entering the World Cup at this level is linked to the desire of Lewy to do, and Poland have a lot of resources of their own.
7. Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal
The Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo continues on the list of the best players because everyone sees him all the time I think. He made strong memories at Manchester Joined, turning on and off the original Erik Ten Witch formation. Despite the negatives of this season, in the end, he is still Cristiano Ronaldo, he understands very well. Going to their fifth World Cup was no easy tour, with Portugal qualifying at the end of the season by beating North Macedonia. All eyes will be on Ronaldo to help boost them significantly in this tournament. Ronaldo has 117 goals in 191 games for Portugal and is the top scorer at the back. Ignore what you saw in the Chiefs Association. Ronaldo will bring Portugal back to Qatar. Also, it made sense when we last saw it.
8. Luka Modric, Croatia
Like Messi and Ronaldo, this could be Modric’s last appearance at the World Cup. Going into his fourth at 37 (but you wouldn’t know it watching him play) he’ll have more of that moxie in him to help propel Croatia into the tournament. For Real Madrid, he set five goals and two assists and played more than 1,000 minutes and showed that things are not slowing down. Croatia may not have a team as talented as Madrid, but Modric will make sure he gives them a warm welcome.
9. Vinicius Junior, Brazil
Vinicius Junior made his most memorable World Cup start at 22. After a slow start for Real Madrid, Vinicius has become a rising star. Playing close to Benzema, the two became a double threat. His progress from the 2019-20 season to the 2020-2021 season is remarkable – he went from six goals and seven assists in 2019 to 22 goals and 20 assists in the following. Someone ate their wheat! In Brazil, he will have the help of Neymar to get down the field and create problems for opposing defenses.
10. Harry Kane, England
British captain Harry Kane will be a big key to Britain’s endurance in this tournament as the Three Lions look to progress to the World Cup. For Tottenham, Kane has scored 12 goals and has three assists in 20 games, completely controlling it as possible. On the home side, Britain has a record number of centre-backs struggling with injuries, which means that the tension is on another level for Kane, who should have no problem handling it at the big stage.
