FIFA World Cup News 2022
FIFA World Cup, Injuries have plagued Kante, Pogba, and Diogo Jota, while Haaland, Salah, Verratti, and Donnarumma are unable to participate since their countries have been eliminated.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup is expected to begin on November 20 in Qatar, but several football players, like French midfielders N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba, and Portuguese striker Diogo Jota, are still out due to injury.
Furthermore, one of Europe’s top attackers, Erling Haaland from Norway, Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, Italian midfielder Marco Verratti, and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma are among the notable players who will miss Qatar 2022 since their countries were eliminated in qualifying rounds.
France, the reigning world champions, were devastated by the injury of two regulars.
Chelsea’s French midfielder Kante, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, has been ruled out of the Qatar 2022 tournament after Chelsea stated in October that the 31-year-old is anticipated to be out for four months after surgery for a hamstring issue.
Due to a knee injury, Paul Pogba of Juventus, one of the major cornerstones of Les Bleus, will not participate for his country in Qatar. Pogba, 29, who won the FIFA World Cup in Russia four years ago, had knee surgery in September, months after rejoining Manchester United.
Pogba has not played for Juventus this season and is currently recovering from an injury. Rafaela Pimenta, his agent, said last week that the veteran athlete “will still need recuperation time following his operation.”
Wijnaldum, a Dutch midfielder, broke his leg in August.
Roma’s Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum will miss this year’s World Cup after breaking his leg during training in August. He has a tibia fracture in his right leg and is still unfit to participate. Diogo Jota, a Portuguese striker for Liverpool, is one of the players that will miss the 2022 FIFA World Cup due to injury. Jota, 25, was pulled out of the World Cup due to a significant calf injury, as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp disclosed in October.
“It’s very bad news; he (Diogo Jota) will miss the World Cup,” Klopp stated earlier.
Werner of Germany has an ankle injury
Timo Werner, a German attacker, will miss the 2022 FIFA World Cup owing to an ankle injury. Werner, 26, was hurt on Wednesday during a UEFA Champions League play. “Timo Werner sustained an ankle injury against Shakhtar Donetsk last night, and scans today in Leipzig revealed that he had tragically ruptured the syndesmosis ligament in his left ankle and will therefore be out for the rest of 2022,” his club RB Leipzig announced.
Werner represented Germany in the 2018 FIFA World Cup as well as the UEFA EURO 2020 competitions.
Dybala and Varane are both uncertain for Qatar 2022
Argentina’s great Paulo Dybala was injured, and the Roma striker is expected to miss the World Cup. The 28-year-old suffered a hamstring injury in October and is anticipated to return in late November. Dybala may be able to recuperate in time for the FIFA World Cup, but he will not be match-fit. Meanwhile, Manchester United’s French central defender Raphael Varane may miss the trip to Qatar owing to a leg ailment.
Varane, 29, was hurt during his team’s match against Chelsea in late October. The 2018 world champion sobbed as she walked off the field.
Salah, Haaland, Verratti, and Donnarumma
Other football players such as Norway’s Haaland, Egypt’s Salah, Italian midfielder Verratti, and his compatriot Donnarumma, who plays as a goalie, will be unable to compete. Norway was in the same group as the Netherlands and Turkey, however the Nordic squad finished third in Group G of the European qualifications and was eliminated in the group stage at the FIFA World Cup. It implies that Haaland of Manchester City and Martin Odegaard of Arsenal will remain at home.
Another team that will not participate in Qatar is Egypt. Senegal eliminated Egypt on penalties in the African qualifiers in March. As a result, Liverpool’s winger Salah will miss the World Cup. Verratti and Donnarumma, colleagues at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), are the two prominent names that will miss Qatar 2022 at the FIFA World Cup. Italy, the four-time world champions, were upset 1-0 by North Macedonia in the 2022 World Cup playoff semifinals in March, signaling the end of the road for the Italians.
The Azzurri have failed to qualify for two World Cup tournaments in a row

The Spanish football federation confirmed in a statement that the team’s head coach, Luis Enrique, would submit the roster on November 11.
