The summer World Cup is traditionally held when the club football season is over. Since Qatar’s summer temperatures can reach very high degrees, the World Cup is being held in the winter. As we are aware, most lucrative bets are placed on World Cup contests and now you can try your luck and play the best live casinos to gain some extra cash.
Following the most recent round of international competition, a number of Man United players have already guaranteed themselves spots on Qatar’s table for the upcoming winter. Below is a list of potential Red Devils players for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
1. Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Jadon Sancho – England
When it came to scoring in the group stage of European qualification, England finished first. Maguire and Shaw have been vital components of Gareth Southgate’s defence despite Man United’s problems. If Sancho keeps up his current performance, he has a good shot of making it.
Shaw, who began his professional career at Southampton, is a solid left back. He has been a rock for United as a defender and a mainstay in the England national team since signing in 2014. Moreover, he is the youngest player to ever play in a World Cup (he played in 2014). Shaw scored the fastest ever goal in a Euro Championship final, and he also competed in Euro 2020.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot – Portugal
To qualify for the World Cup in Qatar, Portugal had to compete in a play-off. In the final playoff game against North Macedonia, Fernandes scored twice to send his team to the World Cup. If Ronaldo and company want to go far in the World Cup, they’ll need to play better soccer in the lead-up to the tournament.
3. Raphael Varane – France
After a fruitful career with Real Madrid, Varane joined the Reds in 2021. Even in his first season, he showed promise and contributed significantly to man utd’s defence.
Varane is a mainstay in the back four for the French national teams at both the youth and senior levels. He had already competed at the World Cup once, in 2014, and he started all seven games for France in their successful 2018 campaign in Russia. He was injured for Euro 2016, yet he still managed to play in the Euro 2020 event.
4. Fred – Brazil
As a midfielder for United since 2018, Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos, or Fred as he is known by his teammates, is a fan favourite. He hasn’t made a major difference, but he’s scored a few goals and is maturing into a respectable player.
Fred has represented Brazil at the Under-20 and senior levels of international competition. While he did make the 2018 FIFA World Cup roster, he did not play in any games. We hope 2022 is his year to finally make an impact and see significant playing time.
5. David de Gea – Spain
David de Gea is still one of the top goalkeepers in the world. Since 2011, he has been a member of the Red Devils, and he has represented Spain in a number of international competitions.
He took over as Spain’s starting goalkeeper after the retirement of the great Iker Casillas and has done reasonably well. The European Championships in 2016 was his first major international competition, followed by the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. However, De Gea has missed out on Spain’s most recent squads and may miss out on the World Cup in Qatar.
