It hasn’t come without huge controversy but excitement for the winter World Cup is finally here after the tournament got underway last Sunday.
Ecuador’s 2-0 win over the host nation kicked us off at the weekend and was followed by a thumping 6-2 win for Gareth Southgate’s England as the feast of football began in Asia.

France enters the tournament as defending champions, but with the likes of Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo playing and Southgate’s Three Lions going close in 2018 – no team can be discounted – not even Saudi Arabia, who recently defeated tournament favorites Argentina.
Here is who the bookies are tipping to win the World Cup 2022*.
