There are only five months left for the Qatar 2022 World Cup of his initial kick and this Tuesday, June 14 Costa Rica became the last ranked team after beating New Zealand in playoffs between Concacaf and Oceania, it will therefore now be part of Group E.
The Ticos beat the Kiwis 1-0 and now they are thinking about the 160 days left to start their participation in the FIFA global meeting. On November 23 they make their debut against Spain, on the 27th they face Japan and on December 1 they collide with Germany. And the big star of his team will be the keeper Clelor Navas.
However, he will not be the only world-class personality who will claim to be present in the Middle East. Lionel Messi with Argentina, Cristiano Ronaldo with Portugal, Kylian Mbappé with France and Sadio Mané with Senegal are just some of those who stand out, but there will also be several who will not be able to call themselves present. .
They all want to be present at the big football event, but only 32 make it. So, in the uphill battle of trying to secure a ticket to Qatar 2022, there were several stars who fell short and will surely be missed.
Obviously the one that hurts us the most is Chile’s failure to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar, but there too they will regret it since they will not be able to count on several of our figures like Arturo Vidal, Alexis Sánchez, Claudio Bravo, Gary Medel and Charles Aránguiz. However, the figure of the King is the one that attracts the most attention.
Of course, in addition to Chile with Vidal, there are other players who will be missing. This is the case of the five big stars who will not be able to say they are present at Qatar 2022: Erling Haaland with Norway, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with Gabon, Mohamed Salah with Egypt and Edin Dzeko with Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Haaland the first big fall with Norway
On November 16, 2021, Norway fell to the Netherlands 2-0 in the European Qualifiers and were excluded from the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The team’s big star Erling Haaland could not be present due to a hip injury and could not help. it’s up to you to classify.
Along with Manchester City’s newest striker, Arsenal midfielder Martin Ødegaard is another name that stands out among those who will not join Norway at the World Cup.
Haaland’s numbers with his selection are simply brutal. At just 21, the striker has scored 12 goals in 15 appearances for his country and his quality as a goalscorer will surely be missed in Qatar.
Mohamed Salah was left out thanks to a great friend
Egypt is another of the teams that failed to secure tickets for the Qatar 2022 World Cup and with that the world figure of Mohamed Salah, for many a serious candidate for the Ballon d’Or in previous seasons, will not be able to deploy his talent. nor to Arab lands.
Carlos Queiroz failed to complete the mission with the team managed by Ehab Galal today and after losing to Sadio Mané’s Senegal in the African qualifiers due to penalties, where Salah missed a shot, he has must have regretted not being able to go to the fourth World Cup in its history.
The Liverpool striker is undoubtedly the figurehead of his side and at the planetary event hosted by world football’s governing body, they are sure to miss seeing his talent displayed on the various pitches that take place .
Aubameyang and Dzeko close the Top 5 numbers outside Qatar
Among the main names that stand out as the big absentees from the Qatar 2022 World Cup, two very important players also feature. In the first place, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who, with the Gabon team, of which he is the all-time top scorer, was also left out.
On the other hand, there is also experienced striker Edin Dzeko. The 36-year-old Inter Milan striker with Bosnia and Herzegovina also failed to secure tickets for Qatar, but those aren’t the only numbers. With him, Atlético de Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak will also not be with Slovenia, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will watch him on TV from Sweden.
With them, he will also highlight the absence of a large part of the Italian team. The Azurra were ruled out of their second consecutive World Cup and thus Ciro Immobile, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Jorginho, Marco Verratti, among others, will not reach Arab soil.
