Argentina won the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The final took place on Sunday, December 18. In the final, Argentina defeated France. In the meantime the match ended with a score of 2:2.

On the eve of the World Cup in Qatar there were many secret favorites who claimed the title of champion in addition to the favorites of the World Cup. We take a close look at all the favorites of the 2022 World Cup. This information will be useful for those who made Vulkanbet sports betting on the World Cup.

France

Of course, we can not fail to mention that the favorite of the World Cup – France – was no less equipped. The French national team at the World Cup, whose market value exceeds a billion euros, could boast of big names:

  • Mbappe;
  • Griezmann;
  • Coman;
  • Hernandez;
  • Upamecano;

Brazil

It also almost goes without saying that Brazil is one of the favourites to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The South Americans still top the list of most frequent World Cup winners with five titles, ahead of Germany and Italy.

Even if the last victory at the World Cup was 20 years ago, the Brazilian national team with superstars Neymar, Vinicius Junior, Rodrigo or Gabriel Jesus was considered a team with good chances. Also in 2016, Neymar Jr. won Olympic gold with Brazilian footballers.

England

The English national team has been waiting for its second World Cup title for more than 50 years. At the last World Cup the English finished in 4th place, then at the 2021 European Championship they reached the final – where they bitterly lost to Italy on penalties.

Even the captain and top scorer of the last World Cup, Harry Kane, sets up his wards for a tournament with young superstars.

Germany

Let’s start with the perennial favorite – the DFB team. It is believed that Germany has a chance in almost every major tournament. On the one hand, because the Germans are a football nation, and on the other – because of the development of talents and many big names in the German national team at the World Cup.

This time among the top players of the world bet on the football wore the German shirt at the World Cup in Qatar:

  • Neuer;
  • Sane;
  • Gnabry;
  • Muller;
  • Kimmich;
  • Gorecka;
  • Gundogan;

Why the tournament favorites failed

At the last World Cup, Germany tried to play the way Liverpool and Manchester City had played in the previous Premier League season, pressing super high and tilting the pitch a lot against their opponents. They did both of these things as planned, just not effectively.

At the Euros, they switched to playing with three defenders to create some reliability, and achieved better results: an embarrassing defeat to France, a complete rout of Portugal, and a 50-50 game with England that ultimately came down to Thomas Muller not hitting the back of the net.
