The 2022 FIFA World Cup is an international football tournament contested by the men’s national teams of FIFA’s member associations, and the 22nd FIFA World Cup. It is taking place in Qatar from 20 November to 18 December 2022, making it the first World Cup to be held in the Arab world and Muslim world, and the second held entirely in Asia after the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan.[A] France are the defending champions, having defeated Croatia 4–2 in the 2018 final. At an estimated cost of over $220 billion, it is currently the most expensive FIFA World Cup ever held; this figure is disputed by Qatari officials, including organizing CEO Nasser Al Khater, who said the true cost is $8 billion, and other figures relate to overall infrastructure development since the World Cup was awarded to Qatar in 2010.

This tournament is scheduled to be the last with 32 participating teams, with the field set to increase to 48 teams for the 2026 edition. To avoid the extremes of Qatar’s hot climate, this World Cup is being held during November and December. It is being held over a reduced time frame of 29 days with 64 matches to be played in eight venues across five cities. Qatar’s national football team automatically qualified for the first-ever World Cup, with 31 teams determined through a qualifying process. Qatar lost all three of his group games. The first host to lose every game, the first to be eliminated, the last and only host in the competition, and his second host not to have a first phase (after South Africa in 2010). Ultimately, defending champions France and Argentina advanced to the final, which will take place at Lusail Stadium on his December 18, 2022, which coincides with Qatar’s National Day.

The decision to host the World Cup in Qatar has been controversial due to Qatar’s treatment of migrant workers and women, its position on LGBT rights, and Qatar’s climate, strong football culture and lack of planning. Alteration and hosting bribe allegations and wider FIFA corruption.

Argentina vs France, Lionel Messi vs Kylian Mbappe, the thrilling heavyweight finish that this sensational 2022 World Cup has deserved. Officially by the FIFA rankings, this is No. 3 vs No. 4, but on the whole, the two most deserving teams reached the end of the road.

Despite a host of injuries before the tournament started, France have been sensational, overwhelming teams with a pace and precision on the counter-attack run by Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann. Add in the great form of No. 9 Olivier Giroud, and they’re a formidable opponent. Yet Messi and Argentina will be licking their chops after watching the long stretches of pressure Les Bleus faced in their semifinal against Morocco. The Albiceleste are built well to possess the ball against the France setup and deal with the pace on the counter.

So who will lift the trophy? An enthralling, star-studded World Cup final awaits us, so let’s break it down.
