The Euro Champions won't feature in 2022. The last time this happened was when the Dutch won the Euro and failed to turn up at the World Cup.


I personally believe the Regional Championship winners should get a direct ticket to the FIFA Finals. Afterall, the Regional Championships also require teams to qualify. Given the number of competing nations, a Qualifier is necessary, but for me, FIFA should atleast have a direct qualification for the Final 4. For long, I have been a proponent of the fact that the 3rd place game needs to be scrapped as it hold no value whatsoever in the larger scheme of things (except financials maybe)

A big no to direct qualifications from me. The world cup charm is that anything can happen at any stage.

I get it. With the game window being so small, anything can happen. However, countries ought to be rewarded for their pursuits in the lead up to the World Cup. I get the point that some may miss out during the qualifiers due to bad gameplay, but to deny the regional winners - I think that's stretching it a bit far

Reward is the prestige with the win. They are a big thing on their own.
Maybe a higher place in qualifiers

Two years is plenty of time in football these days though. Spain went from being European champions to getting dismantled in the WC just two years later for instance. Allowing teams a direct entry on the basis of their continental achievements seems a bit unfair to me considering the unpredictable nature of knockout competitions in general.

Group E and Group G are definitely interesting ones to watch out for.

Gunning for the Dutch (as always) followed by Germany. Hopefully, the Oranje can make it this time round.
