2022 Top Possible FIFA World Cup Final Matchups Worth Imagining

2022 Qatar World Cup

  • When: Nov. 20 – Dec. 18

Brazil vs Argentina

Brazil is the chalk while Argentina is third choice after France. Not only that, but both teams boast spectacular rosters. 

Neymar versus Messi for the World Cup title? It’s impossible to think of a better matchup.

Netherlands vs Germany

The Netherlands has gotten closer to becoming the ninth nation to win a World Cup then any other country. Whenever the Netherlands has fallen, it’s usually against Germany.

So watching the Netherlands battle the Germans for their first World Cup title would be epic. 

France vs England

England and France are rivals in almost everything. The rivalry isn’t as heated as it used to be because Napoleon is dead.

Still, the entire nation of England would cry for an entire year if they lost a World Cup Final to France and vice versa. Also, both teams are talented enough to win the World Cup. So this would be a great match.

If Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe for France and Harry Kane, Jack Grealish, and Phil Foden for England are at their best, we could be in store for the highest-scoring World Cup Final in history.   

Germany vs Argentina

Germany and Argentina have had strong relations for over a century. During World War II, Argentina had a significant population of ethnic Germans, which is why so many Nazis went to Argentina before the end of the war.

In 1986, Diego Maradonna and the Albiceleste beat West Germany 3-2 to win the World Cup. Then in 1990, West Germany returned the favor, beating Argentina 1-0 in the Finals. 

In 2014, Lionel Messi and Argentina fell to Philip Lahm, Thomas Mueller, and Germany in the World Cup Finals. Germany versus Argentina is a classic World Cup rivalry that would be fantastic to see. 

Uruguay vs Brazil 

The story in Brazil versus Argentina would be Neymar against Messi. The story in Brazil versus Uruguay would be the best South American soccer nation on the planet versus the best up and coming South American soccer nation on the planet. 

Don’t get us wrong. Brazil has a ton of young talent. Raphinha, Gabriel Jesus, and Richarlison are 25. Vinicius Junior is 22 and Rodrygo is 21.

But the South American team with the two best young players is Uruguay. The Uruguayans are a +5000 choice. Forward Darwin Nunez and midfielder Federico Valverde are two of the best at their positions on the planet.

If Brazil takes on Uruguay expect fireworks. If Uruguay wins the World Cup Finals, the torch will have been passed.
