The organization of the World Cup 2022 has become one of the most important elements of the plan of the Qatari leadership for the development of sports and football in particular. A conversation about the Qatar national football team should start with the figure of its coach. 46-year-old Felix Sanchez Bas came to this country in 2006 with one goal - the development of youth and adult football in Qatar. The results came in 2014 when the under-19 team became the Asian champion. In 2019, the updated first team won its first trophy in history - the Asian Cup. The team did not lose even once in the entire tournament, conceded the only goal in the final and shocked the public. The merit of the former Barcelona player is enormous, he became a catalyst for the development of football in Qatar.

Leaders and stars of the Qatar national football team

The main feature of many Asian teams of medium and low level is the presence of players in the national team from the home championship. The Qatar national team is COMPLETELY composed of representatives of the local QSL league. There are few stars in the team, but in Asia the names of Almoez Ali and Hassan al-Khaidos have already been learned - these guys drag the whole attack of the Qataris on themselves, they will do it at the World Cup. Our world cup prediction at the request of the Qatar national team is based on the team’s past performances.

The main stars of the national team

For European and even American fans with African fans, the names of most Qatari football players will not say anything. But some are worth highlighting. Hassan al-Haidos is the leader and most experienced player in the Qatar national team. The record holder spent his whole life in one club - Al-Sadd, he led the national team as a captain. The young hope in attack is Almoez Ali, who became the best player and top scorer of the victorious Asian Cup 2019. He managed to play in Spain and Austria, but in 2016 he returned to his homeland in Al-Duhail and began to score constantly.

On defense, it is worth mentioning Hassan Abdelkarim, the first ever Qatari to win the Asian Player of the Year award in 2019. The left-back will rattle the 2022 Group A World Cup opponents with a powerful shot. The first legs will be decisive, and Abdelkarim will be able to help in defense. The second best player in Asia behind him, Akram Afif, is the third hope of the Qatar national football team in the attacking line. At Bas, he plays the role of a passer, giving out as many as 10 assists in the winning Asian Cup.

Qatar squad at the 2022 World Cup: group, opponents, predictions

Felix Sanchez Bas’s team in Group A faced Qatar’s teams from Ecuador, the Netherlands and Senegal. It is clear that the hosts have little chance of qualifying from the group to the playoffs, but they will be able to show decent football with elements of the Barcelona style. The first match-opening of the World Cup with Ecuador will be decisive, the chances of catching points with a team that is not the strongest in terms of composition of the national team can be daring.


Head coach Felix Sanchez Bas prefers a 3-5-2 formation. Our editors suggest such a starting line-up for the first matches of the World Cup: al-Shib-Ro-Ro-Hassan-Khuhi-Salman-Waad-Budiaf-Hatem-al-Khaidos-Afif-Ali.
