Qatar World Cup 2022

Id say Kante and Pogba are are bigger loss but I do feel for Benzema , Mane and all those players who missed out due to injury. 

I think Brazil got the depth to go far and win it all, but I've seen enough World Cup to know that doesn't always translate to winning the tourney

By far one of the strangest countries I have ever visited. Got the chance to visit in 19’ and see the stadiums being built. The downtown is the most incredible thing I have ever seen. Literally 50+ brand new skyscrapers.

I asked the cab driver to take me there. He refused several times, until he relented- the secret was out of the bag- I didn’t see one person in the whole area. No joke. Complete ghost town. They built this giant city with $100+ billion over night to change their economy’s dependence on oil.

It was so sad to see. It’s like a ton of developers convinced these people that thousands of companies and employees would flock to the desert to start businesses?

After the World Cup, ain’t no company setting up shop there. This huge metropolis in the middle of the desert that will never be used. This place will go down in history as the biggest waste of a future generation’s inheritance ever.

I wouldn't judge that race as being over just yet with the Saudi Neom ridiculousness on the horizon: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neom.

teams are too focused on the politics of it sadly instead of the game. 

I don't think it's the politics. Although that was a predictable problem and FIFA has made it all worse. At this point, the critique is more against FIFA than Qatar.

The players are in the middle of their club seasons. No training camp before. Unless the national team has played together in years, teams won't play at their highest level. Soccer is a weakest link sport, everyone has to communicate and know what the others are doing. Losses by big names were bound to happen in that setting. These teams are more likely to have never played together in that formation, compared to smaller countries that draw on a smaller pool and hence the players know each other better.

I was referring to the pre game Germany team pic and the Belgium shirt issue.
