All the fans of the world, and here it is appropriate to say it, of football know very well that by the end of next year they must absolutely free their agendas from any kind of commitments. The reason
Well, nothing, a small thing called the Qatar 2022 World Cup that records record audiences and takings at every edition! We said it was a small thing, no
Seriously, the Qatar World Championships will be held starting from November 21 and will keep the fans company until December 18, 2022. It will also be a very special and heartfelt world, both because we are still in a pandemic period and because the first advertisements with a lot of official song are already in circulation, for two main reasons.
First of all, instead of taking place in the summer as usual, it will take place in the winter because, at those latitudes, it would be really prohibitive to play in the summer with the heat. Penalty fainting, or worse, directly on the pitch and moreover live worldwide. It is therefore better to avoid and wait for milder climates.
The second reason concerns the number of participants. This edition will in fact be the last to see 32 national teams face off, given that, for the next ones to be held in 2026, the number of teams will rise to 48.! In this regard, it should be remembered that, still in July 2018, the President of FIFA Gianni Infantino had already thought about increasing the number of competitors, but then it was decided to opt for the next edition.
It will therefore be the best of occasions for our National team, coordinated by Roberto Mancini directly from the bench and led by Giorgio Chiellini on the pitch, to “make up for it” of the placement results in the various groups. But let’s not forget that it will also be the right time to repeat a year of Italian sporting successes in the various disciplines, not to mention the very recent victory at the European Championships in the summer.
You also feel that feeling of excitement and nervousness that already pervades the air in the playing fields
Let alone for the players who will compete against more than fierce opponents, but luckily there is still about a year of time to train. and develop new game tactics.
But it’s not just about sportsmen and fans! In fact, waiting for this edition, are also the gamblers who can’t wait to try their luck by placing their 2022 World Cup odds . Below we present the groups of the national teams and may the best win .
