The 2022 World Cup is only months away and the entire world seems to be getting ready for the biggest football tournament to kick off for the first time in the Arab world. Qatar is getting ready, football fans all over the world are getting ready, sports betting patrons are also getting ready, and of course, the players and the national teams are getting ready for this very exciting competition to begin for the first time in November.
But as we wait for kickoff, let us quickly look at a few of those teams we should have our eyes on in Qatar.
1. The Netherlands
If you’re Dutch and you love betting on football games, then you should definitely start getting ready to place your bets on www.bemybet.com, because we think The Flying Dutchmen are definitely a team to bet on in the 2022 World Cup.
First of all, they were drawn in group A with Senegal, Ecuador, and hosts Qatar, and you just naturally expect them to come out on top in that group.
Also, with a plethora of World Cup experience and big players like van Dijk, de Jong, Memphis, de Ligt, Dumfries, Ake, van de Beek, as well as a very experienced manager in Louis van Gaal, we think the 2010 finalists have what it takes to go all the way in this tournament. And we just know they will have their ever-loyal fans cheering them on all the way.
If you don’t know anything about the Dutch, here’s one; they are huge football fans who like to put their money where their mouths are. And that is why sports betting is huge there. People love to bet on their favorite teams and there are platforms which let do that with ease. But it is important to note that you have to be, at least, 18 years old to be able to participate in sports betting.
Denmark have been nothing short of incredible in recent times, so we definitely tip them to go far in the 2022 World Cup. They currently top their Nations League group which has the finalists from the last World Cup, France and Croatia, in it.
They also made it to the semis of the Euros, losing out to England in extratime after a debatable penalty was awarded to the hosts.
They may not have the biggest names in Europe, but the synergy the Danes show when they’re on the pitch is nearly unrivaled. That, along with their penchant for scoring goals could really take them a long way in this tournament.
Qatar may not have the best crop of players or any form of World Cup experience, but they are the hosts, so you always have to watch out for them.
They will be the only ones in the entire tournament with home fans and it will be interesting to see if they can use that to their advantage.
They can draw inspiration from South Korea who were not favorites at the 2002 World Cup on home soil but managed to use their home advantage to make it all the way to the semi final.
Russia last time out also made it to the quarter finals on home soil, the furthest they have gone in the competition since their independence.
So, yes, definitely look out for this year’s host.
Anyway, we’ll just have to wait till November to see who actually lives up to expectation, who disappoints, and who goes on to shock the world.
