When will the next World Cup take place? Dates and information for Qatar 2022
Turkey and Italy kicked off the long-awaited Euro 2020 tournament tonight.
Roberto Mancini’s side will kick off the tournament in front of a home crowd at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, where 25% of the stadium’s capacity will be filled.
Many fans quietly expect Giorgio Chiellini and co. to grow from strength to strength in the competition since they enter the tournament as outsiders.
Things were put on hold when the tournament was postponed in 2020 owing to a pandemic, but after a year, the event will finally see a champion on July 11 at Wembley, under the name Euro 2020.
However, the World Cup in 2022 will be held in just over a year.
Japan, together with Syria and South Korea, have already qualified from the AFC Confederation. Liverpool attacker Takumi Minamino now leads the qualification golden boot with nine goals.
Brazil now leads the CONMEBOL Confederation with Richarlison, Roberto Firmino, Fabinho, and Alisson Becker in their ranks.
In Europe, three games were played in each group to determine qualification.
Qatar won the bid to host the 2022 World Cup in 2010, making it the first time the tournament would be held in the Middle East.
The emirate defeated Australia, Japan, South Korea, and the United States in the vote to host.
