Who is the best historically?

Since the World Cup was first played in 1930, it is the European continent that leads the way, with 12 titles in total. In the past 21 years, the World Cup has ended up with an European champion 57% of the time. Germany and Italy are both four-time world champions, and France has won the treasured trophy on two occasions and are reigning champions.. As for South America, there are nine titles in total, five of which have been won by Brazil. Argentina and Uruguay complete this list of achievements with two trophies each. None of the other continents are yet to win the World Cup.

Europe is once again the favourite!

As usual, the favourite to win the World Cup is reflected by the bookmakers’ odds. Clearly, the Europeans will be the great favourite to win the 2022 World Cup. Nine of the top 11 in the betting market are from Europe. Therefore, it is very likely that the 2022 World Cup winners will be a European country. That’s even with the current European champions Italy failing to qualify.  With national teams such as England, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Portugal and the Netherlands, All are very strong sides with a good chance of success in Qatar.. During the last World Cup, for example, all four of the semi-finalists (France, Croatia, Belgium and England) came from Europe..

South America and the Brazilian hope

Winning Continent - World Cup 2022

With so few representatives at the  top of the betting market, placing a wager on a South American country winning the 2022 World Cup seems risky. However, Brazil are the current favourites to be the 2022 World Cup winners. Argentina aren’t so strongly fancied but have Lionel Messi and should do well. Uruguay and Ecuador seem to be out of the running for the title, even though La Celeste performs quite well. The chances of overall success for the CONMEBOL federation rest firmly on the shoulders of its two giants, Brazil and Argentina, both former champions. For the rest, the expectations seem to be much lower.

Who else?

Favourite Continent - World Cup 2022

Behind Europe and South America, Africa should follow in terms of favourites for the title. Even though the African teams are no match to the Europeans nor the South American teams, they have a number of talented players. The key to winning a World Cup is having a top-quality squad not a handful of top players. No African team has ever won the World Cup. Due to the considerable gap between them and the Europeans, it will probably be the same case this year.

With current African champions Senegal, Cameroon, Tunisia, Morocco and Ghana as representatives, Africa certainly has talent, but they still can’t compete with the European and South American teams.It will be hard to see them go far in this 2022 World Cup because of the quality of the opposition. 

Behind Africa, North America will be counting on Canada and the United States to shine, ahead of Asia and the other less successful teams. If you want to bet, don't hesitate to bet on the favourite ones: Europe and South America. As is often the case, the title will probably be awarded between these two continents.
