There are only a few days left until the first World Cup to be held in the Middle East, which will take place in Qatar in 2022. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of the top 50 players who will be competing for their respective national teams in the tournament.

Lionel Messi

The Argentinean star arrives at what will probably be his last World Cup as a player, with a thirst for revenge after losing the final of Brazil 2014 eight years ago against Germany; the Argentinean arrives with an Argentina team that has a 35-game unbeaten streak, making them one of the main candidates to win the World Cup.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo knows that this is his last chance if he wants to retire with a World Cup in his trophy cabinet, that is why Qatar is a great opportunity for the Madeira-born player. CR7 is not going through the best moment of his career as a footballer, but unlike other stages with the Portugal national team, the "Bicho" has a great squad behind him in search of the same goal... to give Portugal its first World Cup.

Karim Benzema

The Real Madrid striker arrives at the best moment of his career, in addition to the fact that he is in the world champion team, where many of the French players who lifted the World Cup in Russia 2018 will be back under the orders of Didier Deschamps.
