The world of football is currently in the international break period. One of the agendas that took place was the 2022 World Cup Qualification round. Qatar as the host had clearly ensured a place in this biggest sporting competition.
However, apart from that, which country has also confirmed its presence? As of Sunday (11/14/2021), there are five countries that have also been confirmed to appear in the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Who are they?
The country of Samba managed to ensure a place in the 2022 World Cup after winning over Colombia on Friday (11/12/2021). At that time, Brazil won 1-0. The only goal was scored by a player from Olympique Lyon, Lucas Paqueta.
This is Brazil’s 11th win from 12 matches that have been played and the other one ended in a draw. The result also made Tite’s team lead the CONMEBOL zone qualifying standings with 34 points.
With six games remaining, the number of points is impossible to overtake Colombia, who is currently in fifth position with 16 points. The reason is, the top four countries in this zone standings will automatically qualify for the finals later.
Denmark managed to ensure a place in the 2022 World Cup since the qualifying match last October. Precisely after winning 1-0 over Austria on matchday eight (13/10/2021). At that time, players from Atalanta, Joakim Maehle, became the goalscorer.
The victory made Denmark pocketed 24 points alias swept the entire match with a win. The number of points also becomes no longer able to be pursued by the other five countries in Group F of the UEFA zone. Indeed, only group winners will get automatic passage from this zone.
Outside of Qatar which got an automatic place, Germany became the first country to ensure qualification for the 2022 World Cup. Like Denmark, this certainty was obtained in an international match last October. Precisely after winning 4-0 from North Macedonia on October 12, 2021 ago.
Kai Havertz, Timo Werner (two goals), and Jamal Musiala were the goalscorers in the match. With 24 points and two matches remaining, the Panzer Team can no longer be pursued by other countries in Group J.
France just slaughtered Kazakhstan with a score of 8-0 on Sunday (11/14/2021) early morning WIB. These results also make the Rooster Team the next country to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
This is because France is now collecting 15 points and leading the Group D standings. With one game remaining, the number can no longer be pursued by four other countries. For the record, from 7 matches that have been undertaken, France managed to win 4 wins and 3 draws.
Belgium became the last country so far to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. This certainty was obtained after they won 3-1 over Estonia on Sunday (11/14/2021) WIB. Christian Benteke (11′), Yannis Carrasco (53′), and Thorgan Hazard (74′) were the goalscorers.
The result made Roberto Martinez’s squad lead the Group E standings with 19 points. With one game remaining, that number is impossible to catch by the other four countries. Wales, who are below him, only collected 14 points.
That was the five countries that have ensured qualification for the 2022 World Cup. Plus Qatar which acts as the host. Which other country will follow next? Interesting to wait.
