It’s all eyes on the 2022 FIFA World Cup which kicked off this past weekend in Qatar – and will culminate on 18 December 2022. The middle eastern country welcomed 32 teams including Africa’s finest: Cameroon, Ghana, Senegal, Morocco, and Tunisia.
Marking their first-ever World Cup appearance, Qatar lost 2–0 to Ecuador, becoming the first host nation to lose their opening game.
The week’s best moments include Saudi Arabi’s historic 2-1 win over Lionel Messi’s Argentina, played on Tuesday. On the same day, the defending champions, France slammed Australia with 4 goals to 1. The real drama went down on Wednesday afternoon when Japan surprised Germany with a late comeback in their group E fixture, seeing them win 2-1.
It’s early days yet, to predict the champions of this year’s tournament. But fans can look forward to Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, who is on a mission to give his team its first World Cup title. We also have eyes on Cameroon, Ghana, and Brazil who will no longer be solely reliant on striker Neymar.
