FIFA World Cup Qualifiers 2022

London, ( Parliament Politic Magazine) – The 2022 men’s World Cup in Qatar will feature 32 teams before the field expands to 48 teams for the 2026 World Cup. The FIFA men’s World Cup has featured 32 teams for the last six editions since France 1998.

After the first round of qualifying, there are three more rounds left to be played in the tournament. As in the past, ten teams will compete for four spots in each group. The top four teams advance to the finals, while the fifth place team will enter the inter-confederation playoffs against a team from the CONCACAF, AFC, or OFC. Brazil leads the group, with 35 points. It is the most successful nation in world soccer, having qualified for every World Cup final since 1930. Argentina and Spain will join Brazil in the finals, while Chile, Paraguay, and Venezuela are also in the mix.

The qualifying stage will involve a single match between the two lowest-ranked OFC nations. The winner would advance to the group stage. The remaining eight teams will be split into two groups of four. The top two teams will advance to the knockout stage, where the winners of each group will face the top two teams from the other group. The winner of each group will go on to play in the inter-confederation play-offs, which will take place in the last week of March.
