which players risk the forfeit?

The 2022 World Cup is fast approaching. A few weeks before the competition in Qatar, several players and not the least are likely to forfeit. Workforce review.

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar begins on November 20. Each team prepares for global competition. If on the side of the supporters, thanks to SOS Pronostics, we no longer ask ourselves the question How to predict the 2022 World Cup? On the coach side, we wonder about the players we will have available in a month. Stars of world football could indeed miss the competition due to injuries that occurred during this first third of the 2022-2023 season.

For England, the decimated defense

On the English side, uncertainty remains regarding several players. Reece James, who injured his knee in a Champions League match against AC Milan, is very uncertain. In defence, John Stones and Harry Maguire have been off for a month now. Both suffer from a hamstring injury. Finally, Kalvin Phillips, who still suffers from a shoulder, is practically forfeited for the competition. And Kyle Walker, City defender remains uncertain but is recovering positively from a groin injury. Concerns in perspective therefore for coach Gareth Southgate a few weeks before the competition where he hopes to shine with his Three Lions. In Wales, Gareth Bale should be there even if he plays sparingly in MLS.

Paul Pogba and Ngolo Kanté could miss

In France, Paul Pogba returned to training after his knee surgery last August. The player displays his confidence but has been warned by his coach: no question of taking injured players with him. Ngolo Kante He was hit in the hamstrings and practically forfeited for the World Cup. Ditto for his teammate at Chelsea, Wesley Fofana. Finally, Boubacar Kamara (knee) is indeed forfeited. Lucas Hernandez, injured in the groin, must compete in a race against time to be released for November 20 and the start of the competition. But the 2018 world champions have resources and Didier Deschamps could easily replace the forfeited players.

Richarlison can hope

In the other nations, Brazil is keeping its fingers crossed for Richarlison. Hit in the calf during the last match against Everton, the Tottenham striker could return in time. Which shouldn’t be the case with Arthur Melo injured since joining Liverpool with a thigh injury. Portugal is already mourning the absence of Diogo Jota injured against Manchester City. Jürgen Klopp has announced that his player could not play in the world competition. German side, Marcus Reus (ankle) and Leroy Sane (thigh) are also uncertain.

Dybala forfeited, Di Maria uncertain

Finally, the Netherlands will have to do without Georginio Wijnaldum (tibia fracture). Argentina will land in Qatar without their striker Paulo Dybala (thigh). In contrast, Angel Di Maria still has a chance to recover from his thigh injury. At PSG, star Lionel Messi expressed his fear of injury just before the competition. And with the busy schedule ahead of the World Cup, apprehension will increase as we get closer to the long-awaited competition in the small gas state of the Persian Gulf.
