Nothing says World Cup like an opening ceremony in a desert in November. The completely-above-board 2022 World Cup in Qatar is already looming onto the horizon with plenty of nations booking their spots in the (hopefully) once-in-a-lifetime spectacle.


European qualifying is done with just the playoffs to come while Brazil and Argentina have also booked their spot along with hosts Qatar. African qualifying is at its final stage as Asia and North America rumble on.

With the picture starting to become a bit clearer, Paddy’s trusty football traders have been clattering away on a dusty old abacus to formulate their prices for the runners and riders to win the 2022 World Cup. The top of the market is predictably European with just Brazil and Argentina attempting to crash the party. Let’s take a look.



Defending champions France had a bit of a nightmare at Euro 2020 and will have to get their act together if they’re to go deep at the World Cup. Not lacking in talent, their downfall ultimately came courtesy of some bizarre tactical decisions from Didier Deschamps as they crashed out of the Euros at the last 16 stage.

France World Cup 2022 Winner


Led by their superstar forward Neymar, Brazil have cruised through South American qualifying. They’ve been a bit disappointing in recent World Cups, departing the 2018 edition in the quarter-final and getting destroyed 7-1 in the semis by Germany on home soil in 2014.

Brazil World Cup 2022 Winner


Could this be the year England finally lay the ghosts to rest and win their second major international tournament? Gareth Southgate’s gang lost out on penalties to Italy in the final of Euro 2020 and made it through qualifying unbeaten. While often overly defensive when it really matters, The Three Lions do boast a seriously talented squad of up and coming players mixed in with world-class performers.

England World Cup 2022 Winner

Spain were poor at the Euros but somehow made it to the semi-finals after scraping through the group stages. They look to be improving under Luis Enrique but they made hard work of qualifying and will be thankful that Sweden choked when they were in prime position to make it through automatically.

Spain World Cup 2022 Winner


Serial World Cup winners Germany have been going through something of a lean spell since winning the 2014 edition. They underachieved at the 2018 World Cup as well as Euro 2020. Now under new management they cruised through qualification but did suffer a shock loss to North Macedonia.

Germany World Cup 2022 Winner


Somehow the No.1 ranked team in the world since 2018, Belgium have flattered to deceive and top the FIFA rankings despite not winning a thing. This is probably Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Co’s last chance to turn their quality into glory.

Belgium World Cup 2022 Winner



Talking of last chances, Lionel Messi will be 35 by the time the next World Cup kicks off. He and his Argentina teammates did win the 2021 Copa America, ending the legend’s long international competition dry spell, so maybe something’s clicked.

Argentina World Cup 2022 Winner


Euro 2020 champions Italy have gone off the boil since beating England on penalties in the summer of 2021. Roberto Mancini’s men draw too many games and failed to automatically qualify, losing out to Switzerland in Group C. You can catch them at a big price now as they still have a playoff to contend with.

Italy World Cup 2022 Winner
