The Qatari National Team's Chances and Ambitions in the World Cup

After the Qatar national team was drawn into the first group in the World Cup 2022, we present to you, through this report, an analysis of the group and the chances of the teams qualifying for the second round.

The first group is considered a difficult group, given the names of the teams present in it, including the organizing country Qatar, which will participate in the World Cup for the first time in its history.

The second team is the Dutch team, which has 10 previous participants, which has played 3 finals and lost all of them and reached the semi-finals twice, while the third team is the Senegalese team, the African champion, which participated in two previous editions, the best of which was reaching the quarter-finals of the World Cup 2002, and the fourth team in This group is Ecuador, which participated in the World Cup on 3 previous occasions, most notably reaching the round of 16 in the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Through the above, it seems that the nominations in this group will be very difficult, even on paper.

Al Annabi and Ambitious for the second round

Although the Qatar national team has not participated in the World Cup before, Al Annabi will enter the tournament armed with many factors, including the first factor of the land and the public, which will be in the team’s interest, given the World Cup will be held in Doha, and secondly, the Qatar national team will participate in the World Cup as a representative and champion of the Asian continent, considering He won the Asian Cup in 2019.

And if we talk in terms of preparations and equipment, Annabi is the best team at the level of the tournament and not only at the level of the first group, it started its preparations for this event in 2019 with the Copa America, the Gold Cup, the European qualifiers and the Arab Cup, all of which were high-level continental competitions that equipped the team in a great way, that is why Al Annabi has the right to dream of qualifying for this group and reaching the second round in his first World Cup participation.

But the Dutch national team remains the first and most prominent candidate for this group in deducting the qualification to the second round of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, and with a large percentage at the head of the group, given the great names owned by the Dutch mills, as well as the great history that the Netherlands team wrote in the World Cup tournaments.

As for the Senegal team, all observers and technicians of the world and African football confirmed that the current generation of the Senegalese team, crowned with the African Cup last February 2022, is one of the candidates to write a great history in the 2022 World Cup, and not only qualify from this strong group.

On paper, Senegal is the direct competitor to Al Annabi for the second qualifying card for the second round, since the Netherlands is the candidate for first place, as mentioned above.

The Ecuadorean national team, which will face Qatar in the opening match on November 20, maybe the least likely team of the group to qualify for the second round, but a positive result in the opening match could change all that.
