The 2022 World Cup will be an exciting winter tournament, given the weather conditions of Qatar during summer being too extreme for football. It is the second time that the tournament will be hosted in Asia and the first time in the Middle East. Italy failing the qualifying round for the tournament for the first time for the second consecutive time has created a buzz all over.

For two iconic names in history, Cristiano Rolando and Lionel Messi, it may be the last dance on the big stage. Among all the criticisms, it will be great to see Qatar being the host of the tournament in a few months.


The world’s biggest sporting event, FIFA World Cup 2022, will commence on November 21. A total of 32 countries and captains will lead this tournament, which splits into eight groups of four teams. Hopefully, this guide gave you a better understanding of FIFA World Cup 2022 captains, group stage, venues, and fixtures.
