The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar was the 22nd edition of the FIFA World Cup, an international football tournament contested by men’s national teams of FIFA member associations. It was held in the Middle Eastern country of Qatar, where protests and controversies had surrounded the tournament. The final was won by Argentina.
The tournament in Qatar was the toughest to date. There was a lot of hype surrounding the World Cup in Qatar, including allegations that Qatar paid for players to be injured. Those claims were denied, but controversy still surrounded the tournament. It was expected to earn around $7.5 billion in revenue, but it fell short.
The competition between France and Argentina was the most interesting part of the tournament. The French had a 3-0 lead but allowed the visitors to score a goal with five minutes left. After a draw in the first half, the game went to penalties. A draw after 90 minutes is always decided by penalty kicks, so France were forced to surrender the initiative. The penalty kicks were won by Argentina.
Messi has been one of the most renowned players in the world, and was a major factor in the tournament. He scored two goals in the final. He is now tied with Mbappe for the most goals in the competition. He also won the Golden Ball, the top award given to the best player at the tournament.

In the group stages, France had an advantage over Australia and England, but they lost to Tunisia and Denmark. This was their first loss at the tournament. They had not lost a match at the tournament, but they had less than half of the possession in all three matches. It is likely that they will be looking to qualify for the knockout rounds.
The tournament in Qatar had a variety of superstars. It was expected that the winners would be a French team, but Argentina had a great player in Lionel Messi. Then, there were Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele. They both linked up with Kylian Mbappe. Mbappe has the potential to become the youngest person to win a hat-trick in the World Cup.
The 2022-FIFA World Cup in Qatar was one of the most exciting tournaments in history. It was the first winter World Cup, and the first to be held in the Middle East.
