Part 3: Predict FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Champion

FIFA World Cup Qatar has entered its final stage with four teams left to compete for the trophy. It means there are a few days left before a nation is crowned as champion of the 22nd FIFA World Cup. With the first semifinal played between Argentina and Croatia, it is likely the last football world cup for Argentinian legend Lionel Messi and Croatian legend Luka Modric.

The winner between these two teams is hard to choose, but we think Argentina will edge out and reach their 6th world cup final.

In the second semifinal, defending champions, France will face the first-time semifinalist Morocco. The Moroccan team has surprised everyone in the tournament and has become the first-ever African team to reach a world cup semifinal. Despite containing players like Hakim Ziyech and Achraf Hakimi, it will be hard for them to win against a French team with the likes of Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappé.

We predict that France will be able to face the Moroccan onslaught and break their defense to win the semifinal. Our prediction for the final is to be played between France and Argentina, with France having a higher chance of becoming the champion.

Part 4: When and Where will be FIFA World Cup 2026 Held

The FIFA World Cup 2026 will be held in the USA, Canada, and Mexico. It is the first time three nations are jointly hosting a world cup. The 2026 World Cup will contain more teams than in previous editions, with 48 teams competing for the trophy. It will likely be held in June and July of 2026 across 16 different cities.
