Who are the World Cup 2022 favourites? The Qatar World Cup is quickly approaching and talk of football potentially coming home will soon start again.

The pain of England’s Euro 2020 final defeat at Wembley still feels a recent memory, but the success of the Lionesses at the Women's Euro 2022 will lift the nation's hopes England can win again at World Cup 2022.

Gareth Southgate’s side prepare for the tournament knowing that they are the third favourites, behind only Brazil and France.

Brazil are outright favourites at 5-1, with current holders France at 11/2, and the Three Lions just behind at 13/2.

Other contenders include Argentina (13/2), Spain (15/2) and Germany (9/1), while Belgium are outsiders at 11/1 in what is likely to be the last major tournament for the nation’s golden generation.

Wales, competing at their first World Cup since 1958, are the 20th favourites to win the tournament, sitting at 150/1.

September internationals will start to give us an idea of what many teams will look like when the World Cup 2022 fixtures start in November.

As favourites, the Brazil World Cup squad will draw plenty of attention – and their latest team doesn't include Arsenal players Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Martinelli, Aston Villa's Philippe Coutinho or veteran defender Dan Alves.
