BALL, balipuspanews.com- The prestigious quadrennial event of world football, the world cup, will be held at the end of 2022 or to be precise from November to December 2022. The 2022 World Cup will once again be held in Asia and this time in Qatar.
32 teams participated including the defending champions, the French team and the holder of the most World Cup titles, namely the national team of Brazil. Unfortunately, the winner of the second World Cup trophy, the Italian national team did not participate.
Four years ago, when France became world champions, their sharpest attackers were Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe who scored four goals each. While the tournament’s top scorer was England captain Harry Kane with six goals.
For the 2022 World Cup, speakbola.com have predicted a strong candidate to become the top scorer, assuming the mentioned names are called up to the squad for the World Cup. Here are the seven candidates:
More mature at the age of 29. Considering England’s quality, if Harry Kane gets the assists he needs, he has great potential to convert them into goals. Kane’s game is also growing.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker no longer just waits for the ball in the penalty area to score a goal, but he also moves a lot to recover the ball and contribute to the attacking phase. Kane could once again be the top scorer at the 2022 World Cup.
The 2022 World Cup could be his last as he is now 35. Even if he is no longer young, La Pulga remains La Pulga. At his best, Messi can make the difference with his assists or his goals.
Argentina are in Group C with Mexico, Poland and Saudi Arabia. Without reducing the respect for Saudi Arabia, if their defense is weak, Argentina can score goals and Messi scores a lot of goals in this game.
3. Kylian Mbappe
Four years ago, when he became world champion with France, Kylian Mbappé scored four goals. Now, at 23, Mbappe is growing up with a combination of speed and good finishing.
Especially now that Mbappe is in tandem with Karim Benzema on the front lines, Benzema is a player who also often provides assists and Mbappe can maximize the ‘serve’ he provides. Mbappe is definitely one of the top goalscoring candidates.
4. Romelu Lukaku
Another is Romelu Lukaku at other club level as well as in the Belgian national team. Lukaku struggled to defend Chelsea and is now back at Inter Milan. Despite frequent club changes, Lukaku still appeared in Belgium.
Because there are names that are familiar to him like Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard. Moreover, his teammates also know him, so Lukaku in Belgium is more dangerous if he receives a pass from his teammate.
Four years ago, Lukaku also scored four World Cup goals. Belgium are in Group F of the 2022 World Cup along with Canada, Morocco and Croatia.
Now or never. At 30, Neymar is the backbone of the Brazilian national team and Brazilian legend, Ronaldo Nazario believes Brazil’s chances of victory will depend on how the PSG star performs.
Neymar isn’t a prolific striker who scores a lot of goals, but at his best he’s hard to stop. Neymar can make the difference with his creativity, his goals and his assists.
He’s 37 but Cristiano Ronaldo proved last season with Manchester United that age is just a number on paper. Ronaldo no longer runs much but he is effective in the opposing penalty area.
Helped by his teammates in Portugal, Ronaldo could be one of the top scorer contenders and in 2018 he was also the second top scorer with four goals, along with Lukaku, Mbappe, Griezmann and Denis Cheryshev.
7. Karim Benzema
Karim Benzema is no longer “exiled” by France and Didier Deschamps. It’s clear that the 34-year-old will be one of the strong contenders for the top scorer along with Mbappe. Last season, Benzema took Real Madrid to the Champions League and La Liga titles.
If his momentum and confidence have been building since the start of the 2022 World Cup match, Benzema’s slap of goals can continue with France’s footsteps.
