Neymar is the main figure of the Brazilian team, one of the favorites to win the World Cup.
Will she come back? Finally Brazil to win the biggest trophy? The troops have everything in place, and wear the best version of the “Verdeamarella” at least in two decades, but it will have a lot to do. Two much-feared contenders will win against archrivals Argentina and tough Germany when the Qatar 2022 Soccer World Cup kicks off this Sunday.
Brazil, just as it happened in Brazil. in 2002 (Korea-Japan), he arrives in Qatar with plenty of talent in each of the positions, where the rediscovered Neymar stands out in all areas – he has always been a bastion with the National Team- , Vinicius Júnior, Casemiro and Marquinhos.
The fearsome South American banner has had an infallible World Cup course, and in the span of four and a half years it barely lost its popularity. He played twice (Russia 2018 against Belgium, Copa América 2021 final), an incontrovertible idea of the roller that will step on the team. the magna joust in the Arabian peninsula.
The five-time champion won without trouble the Conmebol qualifiers, thanks to their fourteen victories, with three draws. And the Brazilian solidity under Tite's mandate has been more than devastating: in 76 games, only five falls.
Nestled in group B, with Sweden, Switzerland and Cameroon, the troops arrive with the best version of Vinicius, hot on the heels of the flagship of the best club in the world (Karim Benzemá -Real Madrid) and a Neymar more He is demoniac than ever.
The squad features other luxuries, such as Gabriel Jesús, Rodrygo, Militao, Rapinha, Richarlison, Lucas Paquetá, Állison and a long rosary of stars in the largest European circuits .
Two very tough rivals
But in Qatar there will be a lot of competition. to sweat a lot Regardless of the order, Germany and Argentina will be two difficult stones to break for the yellow-green roller.
Germany not only has four World Cups, but historically it is an emblem when talking about successful teams, since it has always been the biggest headache in each edition: it uses total football like no other. another team.
The German column is supported by the exalted Antonio Ruediger, Thomas Mueller, Kai Havertz, Jamal Musiala, Ilkay Guendogan, Leroy Sané and the others. and Joshua Kimmich, with extended stars on the bench.
Germany comes in search of revenge, after a historic debacle in Russia 2018 (eliminated in the group stage). Their group is E, with Spain, Costa Rica and Japan.
Lionel Messi's Argentina, for the first time since his arrival, had not seen a collective game in the albiceleste so efficient, to the point that today it has the world's longest streak of games without defeats.
And the house that “procreated the god Diego Maradona” is the closest thing to perfection, since Messi no longer has an accusing finger on his shoulders. This Argentina has played 35 games unscathed, with a horrifying whopping 30 wins.
Placed in group C, with Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland, it was the victim of the solitary fall of Brazil -and in Brazil!-, outside Russia 2018. Lionel Scaloni has been the great architect of a project never seen in Patagonia after the Maradona era.
It boasts a full court game, with a lot of attack, great midfield and a defense that solves problems. is carried by the lethal Lautaro Martínez, Ángel di María, Leonardo Paredes, Nicolás Otamendi, Paulo Dybala, among other international stars, with Messi specialized in delivering the grenades.
The French champion, with everything and having a commanding team, where Kylian Mbappé, Karim Benzemá, Ousmane Dembélé, Lucas Hernández and Aurélien Tchuoaméni stand out, has not been the shadow after ;s of Russia ´18. The chemistry has been completely lost, making it clear that he would not be such a serious suitor.
England, full of figures who are not yet around to make a splash, may well get in He also made it into the final four finalists, led by the superb Phil Foden, as well as Harry Kane, Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling.
The Netherlands have plenty of talent too, led by Memphis Depay, Virgil van Dijk, Stefan de Vrij, Frenkie de Jong and Mathijs de Ligt. It lacks a great leader, but it always represents a lot of danger.
Others that should receive mention, without a doubt, are Spain, with a great incipient generation, and why not? no, Portugal, despite the definitive decline of Cristiano Ronaldo, in addition to the always surprising -and runner-up- Croatia, still advanced in age in its insignia.
