A cursed draw for the Blues?


The draw for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is scheduled for April 1, but the France team can already expect the best and the worst …

So far, only 12 national selections, including theFrench team, joined the host country Qatar, among the 32 participants in the World Cup 2022 (November 21-December 18). The end of the qualifiers in America and Asia, the European play-offs, the 5 double confrontations in Africa and even intercontinental play-offs scheduled for next June will give the full cast of the next World Cup.

Since the Fifa ranking will not change much over the next 3 months (it will remain frozen for the European nations), the Blues are already guaranteed to be among the seeds in the draw on April 1. Karim Benzema and his teammates will not be able to challenge the other favorites that are the Belgians, the Argentines, the Brazilians or the English, but it will be necessary to avoid theGermany, installed in cap 2!

The incredible Uruguayan curse

For his first World Cup as a coach, in 2014, Didier Deschamps saw his team fall against the Mannschaft. He who will probably live his third and last international competition … Other potential opponents would awaken bad memories for the France team. The Suisse will appear in hat 2 of the draw. The opportunity for the EDF to take its revenge after the collective defeat against the Nati at the Euro, last July?

A France-Mexico and a France-Senegal will also evoke sacred historical fiascos: the altercation Nicolas Anelka-Raymond Domenech which gave the strike of Knysna in 2010 and the ordeal lived by the world champions 98 in 2002 with a first defeat against the Lions of Teranga. The Mexicans are in a good position to qualify, while the Senegalese will be seeded in the African play-off draw (end of January).

Finally, theUruguay appears virtually in hat 4 of the draw, according to the probability calculations of the specialized site We Global Football. But the Celeste is a demonic black cat for the Blues. France found itself in the same group as the Uruguayans during 3 World Cups, in 1966 (England), in 2002 (South Korea and Japan) and in 2010 (South Africa). Each time, the Habs finished last in their pool!

Possible hat 1: Belgium, Brazil, France, England, Argentina, Spain, Portugal, Qatar

Possible hat 2: Denmark, Netherlands, United States, Germany, Switzerland, Mexico, Croatia, Colombia

Possible hat 3: Wales, Senegal, Iran, Serbia, Japan, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia
