The Wales football team 2022 is anticipated to be announced in October. Wales has no shortage of talent in their national football team. The official announcement will be announced around six weeks before the tournament begins. However, here are the key players you should keep an eye on this season.
Gareth Bale: He was instrumental against Ukraine in the qualifying play-offs, as Wales earned their ticket to the flagship international competition thanks to his first-half winner. As one of the greatest wingers on the team, he has the potential to take his team into the knockout stage.
Wayne Hennessey: With nearly 100 caps, Wayne is Wales' third most-capped player and its most-capped goalkeeper. He was a member of Wales' squads for the UEFA European Championships in 2016 and 2020, reaching the latter's semi-finals. He has been the regular choice in 2022 and should continue with that role in Qatar.
Chris Gunter: He is a full attacking defender who can play on both flanks but prefers to play on the right. Gunter has been a Welsh international since he was 17 years old and is the under-21 team's second youngest debutant. He was selected Welsh Footballer of the Year in 2017. In 2018, he broke Neville Southall's record of 92 caps. In 2021, he became the first Welshman to gain 100 caps.
Fun88 predicted odd: +10000
The Wales soccer team is hyped up for the Qatar world cup. They have ended the 64 years long wait to enter the FIFA finals. In this year's tournament, the team has been drawn into the same group as longtime rival England. Iran and the United States are the other two teams in Group B. The US soccer team has players like Chelsea's Christian Pulisic and Juventus' Weston McKennie. They are anticipated to advance from the group stages at the expense of Wales.
Wales will almost certainly finish as group runners-up if they make it out of the group stages. This would almost certainly set up a last-16 clash with either Senegal or the Netherlands. Senegal is Africa's reigning champion. The Netherlands would likewise be a significant challenge. On the other hand, Wales can take solace in the fact that the Netherlands were eliminated at the same level during last summer's postponed European Championships.
Our experts at Fun88 think that if Wales makes it past the final 16, the tournament will have been a tremendous success for the national soccer team. Nonetheless, we should all simply enjoy the ride and bet on the team, at least for the knockout stage.
