Top 5 disappointing teams at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar


The FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar has come to an end. We have seen many exciting matches, sensational latest football score, and witnessed the first title of the legendary Leo Messi. The tournament has fully met the expectations of the fans. However, there were also national teams that disappointed the fans. Today we will look at the top 5 such teams. These are:

  • Portugal;
  • Belgium;
  • Spain;

  • Brazil.

Fernando Santos’ team was going to the World Cup as one of the favorites. The Portuguese wanted to win and gain the title in the last tournament for such legends as Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe. The reason for the loss to South Korea in the 3rd round was the half-reserve squad. However, the sensational 0-1 loss to Morocco in ¼ surprised everyone. The “Green and Red” played pragmatically and created few chances to win. Ronaldo left the field in tears, and Santos left the team after the game.


The “golden generation” of the Belgian national team seems to have ceased to be golden. The latest team achieved good football scores at the 2018 World Cup (3rd place). However, at Euro 2020, there was a quarterfinal, and in Qatar, the team disgraced itself, scoring only 1 goal in 3 games. And that’s with top players like Lukaku, Hazard, De Bruyne, and Carrasco in the attack. After the tournament, Roberto Martinez left the team.


Spain also had a disappointing performance. In the group, the Red Fury sensationally lost to the Japanese, 1-2, and in ? during 120 minutes, did not score a single goal for Morocco and lost without a chance in the penalty shootout (0-3). Many criticized Luis Enrique for not taking veteran Sergio Ramos, one of PSG’s leaders, to the World Cup. The coach himself was forced to leave.


The Germans were remembered in Qatar more for their performance with their mouths shut before the 1st round than for their play. The team attacked a lot and created a lot, but the terrible defense leveled today football score. In the 1st round, they missed two goals from Japan (1:2), and in the 3rd round also two from Costa Rica (4:2). As a result, only third place in the group and again a failure, just like in the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Perhaps, the championship will be the last for legends Neuer and Müller, but not for Hansi Flick, whom the German Football Federation believes.


Brazil is the biggest disappointment of the tournament. The Latin Americans, just like Argentina, were going to Qatar as favorites. Today, the team had a great football score and nine straight wins in qualifying. Unfortunately, they lost to Cameroon in the 3rd round due to a lack of motivation. However, the loss to Croatia in the ¼ finals (1-1, 2-4 in the penalty shootout) was not expected. Perhaps Neymar should have gone for the penalty shootout earlier as the leader instead of fifth? The main hero was Croatian goalkeeper Livakovic, not the PSG superstar. In the end, Brazil was left without head coach Tite after the tournament.
