Italy and Portugal are at stake, a big suspend in Africa … what you need to know about the 2022 World Cup qualifiers

International breaks will be between Thursday, March 24th and Wednesday, March 30th. A decisive match scene from many countries with a view to participating in the World Cup. The national selection seeks to win one of the 17 remaining places for the Queen of the International Convention to be held in Qatar from 21st November to 18th December 2022.

In Europe, there are 3 or more World Cup tickets

To qualify, playoff teams still in the race must win the semi-finals on Thursday, March 24th and the finals scheduled for Tuesday, March 29th. Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal will face Turkey, but the Italians will have to overcome North Macedonia. The winners of the two matches will be opposed in the final and only one of the four teams will win a ticket to the Qatar World Cup.

Among other matches on Thursday, Sweden will host the Czech Republic and Austria will host a trip to Wales. Poland, which was supposed to face Russia, has already won its position in the finals on the green carpet after eliminating the Russians in response to the war in Ukraine. Meanwhile, Ukrainians saw the semifinals against Scotland postponed at a later date. Therefore, Poland and Scotland have decided to hold a friendly match in thistle by donating the proceeds of the match to UNICEF, a humanitarian aid provider in Ukraine.

In Africa, 5 locations and 5 conferences were recorded

Less than two months after Senegal won the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations, African football is back in the limelight on Friday, March 25th. The African champion will travel to Egypt for a “remake” of the final CAN final. An opportunity to revisit the duel between two Liverpool stars, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané. After the return match in Senegal on Tuesday, March 29, only one of the two teams will be able to qualify.

Other large posters of these qualifications oppose Cameroon and Algeria. CAN’s semi-finalists, the indomitable Lions, need to be wary of revenge-burning Fennec foxes after the disappointed Africa Cup released from the group stage. Other matches are about Ghana vs. Nigeria, Mali vs. Tunisia, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo vs. Morocco.

Nothing has been decided in other parts of the world

In South America, two places for direct qualification are still available, but Argentina and Brazil have already verified Qatar’s tickets. 5th place will return to the intercontinental playoffs. Among the teams still in the race are Uruguay, Peru, Chile and Colombia.

On the Asian side, we will focus on Group 2 where Saudi Arabia, Australia and Japan are trying to win the first two places that are synonymous with direct qualifying. The bottom country must go through a home and away game with Group A (now the United Arab Emirates) in 3rd place to qualify for the intercontinental playoffs.

In Oceania, the team will compete in a qualifying tournament in Qatar and the winner will be able to participate in the intercontinental playoffs. When it comes to Concacaf (North and Central America, the Caribbean), the United States, Mexico and Canada are at their best and can qualify for the last three meetings. Even in the second half of the standings, Costa Rica and Panama are synonymous with intercontinental playoff qualifications and can reach fourth place.
