World's Best XI missing FIFA World 2022 in Qatar


Erling Haaland

The lunatic powerhouse Norwegian Erling Haaland, scores goals at will, however, his services for Norway will have to wait this year, as well as his team failing to make a cut in Qatar 2022 WC.

Roberto Firmino

Roberto Firmino has been great over the years although his contributions recently haven’t impressed the members of his national side and have been omitted from Brazil’s strong 26-men squad.

Mohammad Salah

Liverpool forward Salah has had a heartbreaking year with Egypt. Having been defeated in the Africa Cup of Nations he later failed to convert a penalty to qualify for the WC against the Senegalese side only.


The master who scripted Italy’s Euro Championship in 2020 and helped Chelsea lift the Championship the same year Jorginho misses out from Qatar after Italy’s second consecutive WC debacle.

Paul Pogba and N'golo Kante

Two legendary pairs in the midfield of the World football, the Frenchmen Pogba and Kante who helped France win the 2018 world cup both missed the opportunity to feature in the WC owing to injuries.

Andy Robertson

Scotland's failure to beat Ukraine in a playoff semifinal in June meant that Robertson, arguably the most consistent left-back in the world in recent years, misses out on Qatar.

Recce James

England has an embarrassment of riches at right-back, but the injury-enforced absence of James has arguably denied manager Gareth Southgate his best player in that position.

Sergio Ramos and David Alaba

Two finest CBs in the world David Alaba misses out after failing to qualify and Sergio Ramos the legendary star has been kept out from Spain’s 26-man squad, meaning he has already played his last WC in 2018.

Gianluigi Donnarumma

Italy's No. 1 goalkeeper is having to watch his second successive World Cup at home following the failure of the Euro 2020 winners to book their place in Qatar.
