As the group stage of the World Qualification is coming to its end in the European Groups the first teams have now qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
After delays related to the coronavirus, we can finally see which nations will compete for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The first of the 32 teams have finished their qualification and are ready to compete in Qatar from November 21, 2021.
Because of the corona postponements, we must wait until June 2022 to find the final two teams that will participate in the tournament, when the inter-confederation play-offs will be played. But that won’t hold us back from already starting the speculation of who would stand with the gold trophy on the 18th of December 2022, when the final will be played in front of 80,000 spectators at Lusail Iconic Stadium.
Much information is still waiting to be announced before we can make more qualified guesses. For instance, football fans are waiting for the draw for the group stage that is scheduled for the 1st of April 2022 to take place, to make further predictions.
Close Race At The Top
The bookmakers are having a tough job declaring one team as their favorites. Six teams are taking the top bookmakers’ top positions. The most successful team in the World Cup of all times, Brazil, is taking the bookmakers’ pole position, but nothing is decided yet, as the average odds are +565. This leaves Brazil with an implied probability of winning at 15 percent.
But Brazil is closely followed by reigning champions France with average odds at +614. Counting at implied probability the chances are 14 percent, so Les Bleus are very close to Brazil’s chances of winning.
The pot of top favorites contains England (+760), Spain (+809) four-time winners Germany (+938), and the European champions Italy (+983).

The Runner Ups
The bookmakers still give a fair chance to world ranking leaders Belgium, classic giants Argentina, Christiano Ronaldo’s Portugal team and the total football from the Netherlands. Also, Denmark’s impressive semifinal at Euro 2020 and the impressive qualification campaign for the World Cup are giving relatively low odds to the Scandinavian underdogs.
