FIFA World Cup 2022

FIFA World Cup 2022 Qatar stadium

When people are asked to think about the ultimate football competition, nine times out of ten they will choose the World Cup 2022. It is probably the only football tournament where all the best players and top teams gather into one country, to decide who will be crowned as world champions. Betting in the FIFA World Cup 2022 is a must for all online bettors.

History Of The FIFA World Cup

The first edition of the World Championship of football was all the way back in 1930. Held in Uruguay, back then only 13 teams were permitted to take part, which is very different to the modern tournaments we see today. 

The group winners were Argentina, the United States, Yugoslavia and the hosts, Uruguay. Both semi-finals saw thrashings handed out, as Argentina and Uruguay won 6-1, setting up a tense final. 

Had there been online betting odds been around back then it would’ve been hard to seperate the two South American sides. Ultimately it was the hosts who triumphed over their rivals, running out as 4-2 victors to lift the inaugural World Cup.

For the next edition of the World Cup in 2022, there will be 32 different nations represented, from across five or six of the confederations. While it is still two and a half years away, there are certain teams who will always be considered favourites for lifting the FIFA football trophy, and online bettors will start looking for odds even this far out in an attempt to pick an early winner.

Iconic Players And Teams Of The World Cup

Brazil are the most successful international football side, having won the tournament a staggering five times. They are known for producing a number of great football players down the year, such as Pelé, Romário, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho. 

Favourite Teams To Win The FIFA World Cup 2022

Nowadays the favourite players in the current Brazil side for people betting online would be Neymar, Roberto Firmino and Marcelo. Brazil are certain to have favourable odds to add a 6th World Cup to their collection.

Germany are another country who will be looking for success in the 2022 World Cup. They have won the football competition four times, most recently in 2014. In the final against Argentina, they eventually won an incredibly tense game 1-0, with Mario Götze grabbing the winner in extra time. 

Lionel Messi, the Argentine captain looked distraught after that final. Considered the best player in the world and a firm favourite with online bettors, it may be a tough ask for him to help Argentina win the next World Cup, but stranger things have happened.

Some of the football players fans and online bettors will be eager to see play are Kylian Mbappé of France, Eden Hazard from Belgium, Harry Kane from England and Virgil van Dijk of the Netherlands. All will hope they have what it takes to help their teams achieve success.
