The eight groups that were not able to qualify for the FIFA World Cup are listed here, starting with Italy and ending with Egypt.
Even before the first kick of the ball is taken in the Qatar 2022 World Cup, fans who have not been following the tournament will be startled to learn that Italy, a four-time winner of the World Cup and the current champion of Europe, will not be participating in the competition.
List of the teams that failed to qualify for the World Cup in 2022
In March, Italy’s playoff semi-final against North Macedonia ended in a loss, and the country did not advance to the next round.
The South American team finished in sixth place during the CONMEBOL qualifying rounds, trailing Peru by one point. Peru was the nation that ended up winning the playoff berth after the top four teams secured automatic qualification.
Poland capitalized on the passion of the fans to earn a 2-0 victory over the youthful Swedish squad in the playoff match. As a result, the young Swedish team’s chances of making it to Qatar were dashed.
Chile has been a participant in every World Cup since it was first held in 1930. However, over the course of their last four games played to qualify for Qatar 2022, they only won one of those games.
The outcome of both legs of Nigeria’s playoff match against Ghana was a draw, which dashed the team’s aspirations of playing in front of a sizeable Nigerian diaspora crowd.
As a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine earlier this year, FIFA has suspended the country’s national team from all competitions.
In the playoff match against Senegal, Egypt’s top star, Salah, was unable to convert one of three penalty kicks, leading to the team’s draw.
Despite scoring the game-winning goal in extra time, Algeria was unable to prevail over Cameroon in their playoff match.
