At first glance World Cup qualification: These 31 teams can still expect tickets to Qatar

Englands Jack Grealish (links) und Portugals Cristiano Ronaldo besitzen gute Chancen, um an der WM 2022 in Katar teilzunehmen.


The competition for tickets to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar goes straight home. After this week’s games, it is already clear: Germany and Denmark are two of the 13 European partners. More UEFA starters will be determined by the end of the qualifying group phase by the middle of next month. Only group winners at the World Cup are safe. The runners-up must play in the playoffs. If one or more countries have equal points in groups after the final day of play, the goal difference is determined first, followed by more goals scored and then a direct comparison (unlike European Cup matches, where the away goals still scored are doubled).

Austria’s chances of qualifying for the tournament in Qatar are slim. Coach Franco Foda was severely criticized. In World Cup qualifying, his team could no longer finish second after the defeat – but hope remains. This is because if the four teams of France, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Wales reach one or two places in their World Cup qualifying groups, the Austrians will be able to play in the playoffs. Nations League.


The playoffs will take place on March 24 and 29 next year. The two best group winners in the Nations League complete the elimination round, having not already qualified as group winners in the World Cup qualifiers or have reached the playoffs as group runners-up. There are still three World Cup tickets to be issued. For this purpose, the twelve teams are divided into three playoff paths. There are two semi-finals and one final. The three winners of these mini tournaments will eventually travel to Qatar. But who will be in the competition before the group stage ends? Of SportBUZZER provides a review.
