World Cup is the next “blockbuster” to watch. And now with legal sports betting in Canada, to bet on, – says spokesperson of Canada’s betting portal, Martin Zaykovskiy. He added that “reaching the World Cup is never a foregone conclusion for any country and once Poland were drawn in a qualifying group with England and Hungary, they knew they would have their work cut out to reach Qatar 2022 automatically”.
As it transpired, decent performances throughout the group led to Poland finishing second – six points behind England and they are now faced with a route through the play-offs to reach Qatar 2022.
First up for Czesław Michniewicz’s men is a tricky looking trip to Russia and if they are to win that, they will take on Sweden or Czech Republic in a straight shoot out to reach the finals.
Once again, the nation will be looking to the talismanic Robert Lewandowski to fire his side to glory, but it will be a collective effort if they are to see off the threats Russia and/or Sweden and the Czech Republic pose.
At +300 with bet365 bonus to qualify for the finals, Poland certainly have work to do to reach Qatar 2022 and should they manage to complete that feat, attention inevitably turns to how far they can go at the World Cup.
Having only qualified for 7 World Cups previously, reaching the World Cup is not a given for any members of the current Poland squad and they certainly won’t take it for granted.
That said, they do have an exciting young squad, with plenty of big game experience and they should relish the opportunity to showcase their talents on the world stage, should they reach Qatar 2022.
Currently priced at +9000, it would appear that Poland certainly aren’t amongst the most fancied sides to win the 2022 World Cup but with Robert Lewandowski’s persistent goal threat, they can never be discarded in any game or tournament they play in.
When it comes to World Cups, no side have the depth of talent and history that Brazil possess, and they will be looking to win their first World Cup title since 2002.
Brazil are currently +500 to lift the famous old trophy and whilst they are a side in transition somewhat, the likes of Neymar Jr and Gabriel Jesus could formulate a deadly strike partnership in Qatar.
Defending champions France could take some stopping at +600, with Didier Deschamps’s side breezing through qualification once again in the UEFA section of the draw.
They failed to deliver at Euro 2020, despite many pre-tournament predictions that they were the side to beat but they have a cohesion and understanding not many sides can cope with – making them genuine candidates here.
2010 champions Spain have a youthful side, capable of beating anybody on their day and look good value at +800.
The Spaniards have crept under the radar somewhat in recent years, with the Golden generation of 2008-2012 seemingly forgotten but they were unlucky to lose the Euro 2020 semi-final to eventual winners Italy and they could go well here in sunnier climbs.
Euro 2020 runners up England are also sure to be in the mix – looking to break their 56 year duck for a major trophy – at +900.
Gareth Southgate has his army of fans believing again, having also reached the last 4 of the World Cup in 2018 and with his side now building up a memory bank of coping with big games, they could be a very astute bet for punters chasing value.
