10 players to watch out for at World Cup 2022

FR Stories

All 32 teams have named their squads for Qatar 2022.

Every team will have 26 players in their ranks to choose from but here are the top 10 players you should keep an eye on.

Harry Kane, England

Kane is a solid all-round player, comfortable working as a solo striker or in central midfield.

Robert Lewandowski, Poland

He has been the top scorer in Germany’s Bundesliga for seven seasons. He scored 41 goals in the 2020-21 season alone.

Michy Batshuayi, Belgium

This Belgium team is not without its superstars, including Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard, who will link up superbly with teammates to create opportunities.

Fabinho, Brazil

The 29-year-old Liverpool midfielder has yet to score for Brazil in 28 appearances, so he may not get much penalty box action.

Gareth Bale, Wales

Gareth Bale is a global superstar, but personality clashes and a lack of game time at Real Madrid saw him transfer to Los Angeles.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal

Ronaldo, Portugal's all-time top goal scorer, is a creative playmaker and a showman.

Hakim Ziyech, Morocco

Hakim Ziyech is one of the most dangerous players at this tournament, with pinpoint passes to teammates on diagonal runs and 17 goals for Morocco.

Neymar, Brazil

Neymar is a champagne footballer who can play as a striker, on the wing, or in midfield.

Lionel Messi, Argentina

Messi is almost certainly the finest footballer of his generation. Possibly of any generation.

Kylian Mbappe, France

Mbappe, 23, can play on either wing for Paris Saint-Germain and is creative with explosive acceleration and a sudden change of pace and direction that leaves opponents bewildered.
