It is now less than three weeks till the start of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, four and a half years after the last World Cup concluded in Russia in 2018.
Gareth Southgate’s England team faces Iran in the tournament’s second encounter, which begins on November 20th with hosts Qatar against Ecuador in the tournament’s first fixture.
In less than a month, Qatar will host the world’s first winter FIFA World Cup.
France enters this winter’s championship as reigning champions, having defeated Croatia 4-2 in the 2018 final in Russia.
Southgate’s England team that year reawakened the nation’s dream, reaching their first World Cup semi-final since 1990 before falling in extra time to the eventual losers.
England captain Harry Kane won the Golden Boot in Russia, scoring six goals on route to fourth place, more than any other player in the tournament.
Brazil has won the World Cup the most times, with their most recent victory in 2002 being their fifth, and the bookies expect them to make it six this year.
The South American nation is best priced at 9/2 to win their first World Cup in 20 years, with defending champions France considered the next best bet, with BetVictor providing 13/2 for them to become only the third nation to win back-to-back titles.
Argentina, England, and Spain are the next three in line, with most bookmakers providing odds of 7/1 or 8/1 on all three.

In slightly better news for England fans, Harry Kane is largely expected to end the tournament as the tournament’s top scorer, becoming the first individual in history to win two World Cup Golden Boots.
The best odds for the England captain to win back-to-back Golden Boots are 8/1 with BetVictor.
Kane’s main rivals are French forwards Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema, who are both set at 10/1 with Betway and as high as 14/1 with Sky Bet.
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are expected to participate in their final World Cups and are rated at 14/1 and 16/1, respectively, to win the Golden Boot at Betway.
