Below you will find the groups for the 2020 Qatar World Cup. The table will be updated every matchday.
Qatar’s Odds to win the World Cup
The odds for Qatar to win the World Cup 2022 outright stand at 151.00. They share the same odds as nations like Denmark, Serbia and Wales.
The decision to award the hosting rights for the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, was a deeply controversial one, and one that saw the end of long-standing FIFA president Sepp Blatter stand down. Awarding it to a country with no competitive World Cup history, nor even any notable football culture. Nonetheless, the decision went ahead.
Now that they’re in the competition, let’s take a look at what sort of football team they have. Fresh from winning the AFC Asian Cup, Qatar will certainly be hopeful they can progress out of the group stages. Players like Akram Afif, who recently won the Asian Football Confederation’s (AFC) Player of the Year 2019 award, will be integral to Qatar’s success.
Qatar’s FIFA World Cup History
The Qatar national football team has never qualified for the World Cup since the country’s independence in 1971. Qatar plays regularly in the continental AFC Asian Cup, though the national side hasn’t been successful on the global stage.
By hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Qatar automatically qualifies for the competition. Interestingly, they’re the second nation after Italy in the 1934 FIFA World Cup to play in the World Cup without qualifying for it.
The national side has seen more success in the build-up to the World Cup, winning the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. They also pulled off a stunning comeback in the 2019 Copa America against Paraguay. Despite the heroics against the White and Red, they weren’t able to pull off another conquest as they did in the Asian Cup.
Qatar is keen to show they can compete as hosts, though they stand little chance of winning the competition.
