The World Cup is hands down the biggest sporting event in the world. Every four years the entire world focuses their attention on the best players in soccer representing their countries on the grandest stage. The 2022 World Cup will take place in Qatar, while the 2026 World Cup is already set to take place across North America, including some matches in Canada.
In the 2018 World Cup, France defeated Croatia in the finals by a score of 4-2 to claim the title. The 2022 World Cup will see Canada return to the tournament for the first time since 1986 after a successful qualifying campaign saw them finish atop the CONCACAF Qualifying table.
Qatar 2022 is sure to be an exciting tournament with France once again one of the favourites along with Brazil, England, Argentina, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal and Belgium. It would be a surprise if one of these eight nations did not win the tournament. I for one am looking forward to the action and am currently counting down the days.
Canada is in Group F with Belgium, Croatia and Morocco. It’s a tough group, but if Canada plays to their capabilities they are a threat to advance from the group and make a run in the knockout stage.
