2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar Groups

Qatar is playing in the World Cup for the first time and they're the AFC Asian Cup winners. Since they're the host country, they qualified for the tournament. While Qatar is in, Italy is the biggest name missing from this year's event. Italy, who has won the second most World Cup, failed to qualify in 2018 ad was upset by North Macedonia in March, which is why they won't be participating this year.

Some of the biggest stars of the sport could be competing at their last World Cup. Lionel Messi (Argentina) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal), 35 and 37, respectively, could be entering their last tournament, or the last one in their primes.

Led by superstars Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema, France will be defending their crown after winning the 2018 World Cup in Russia.  With 16 appearances, France has two World Cup championships, winning their first one in 1998.

Below is the full list of the 32 countries competing at the World Cup.

  • Group A: Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal, Netherlands
  • Group B: England, Iran, United States, Wales
  • Group C: Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Poland
  • Group D: France, Australia, Denmark, Tunisia
