As the European leg of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers draws to a close, there’s still plenty of time for some drama and upsets in a number of groups. Some teams can already start packing their suitcases for Qatar, such as Germany, who got back into their groove over the course of the qualifiers after a bit of a shaky start, and the unstoppable Denmark, who have won all of their matches thus far without conceding a single goal.

Belgium and France can also enjoy a certain level of confidence; the final obstacle looming before the current world champions is the hyper-motivated Finnish team, who are currently sitting just below Ukraine in Group D, and who are in fact still in with a chance of taking the top spot in their group. In other groups, the top spot will be fought for tooth and nail as the big teams go head-to-head, a prime example of which will be Portugal’s crunch clash against Serbia in Group A. Although Dragan Stojkovic’s team performed admirably in the qualifiers and have a points lead over Portugal going into this game, they are unlikely to survive the coming onslaught from the goal machine that is Cristiano Ronaldo.
Some matches will look like replays of the 2020 Euros.
Italy are currently on an even keel with Switzerland in terms of points, which means that now would be a good time for Roberto Mancini’s boys to recall their crushing of the Swiss back in June, in a tournament that saw them bring the trophy home to Rome. Meanwhile, the showdown between Sweden and Spain promises to be a memorable affair. Sweden’s performance at the Euros was underwhelming to say the least, but the team boasts some impressive talent, including Alexander Isak and Dejan Kulusevski, was able to grind out a 0:0 draw against La Furia Roja in the Euros, and beat them 2:1 in Sweden in September.
Currently, the Swedes and the Danes are looking like the European teams with the best chance of causing a stir next year on the scorching pitches of Qatar.
