Everything you need to know about the FIFA World Cup Predictor

Punters beware

There’s a reason why Brazil – the #1 seed for the FIFA 2022 World Cup – have been standing in the wings for 20 years. The reason is this: seeds are not a predictor of World Cup success. In fact, there is no reliable FIFA World Cup predictor.

And that’s why the World Cup is so emotional and has fans gripped to the edge of their seats. Anything can happen.

For the past month I have been posting on the FIFA World Cup for 2022. This blog brings all those posts together to help you find everything you need to make your own predictions of who will win the FIFA 2022 World Cup.

Start by understanding how the competition is played

Group Stage

Knockout Stage

Next, find out more about the 32 teams playing and the 8 Groups

Use this reference to help match the flag to the country and to see which team is in which group.

Can you tell just by looking at each group who will go through to the Knockout phase? Get more information before you start laying your bets.

Commentary to help make your FIFA World Cup Predictor more meaningful

I have provided commentary on all the Groups and how each team compares to the other teams in their group. You can use this to help make your FIFA World Cup Winner Prediction

You don’t have to use the ones I made, but if you’d like beautifully designed wall poster style schedules then look no further. Each bundle has a Group Table Winners Bracket and every game of the Group.

Preview of the Daily Match Schedule

Daily Match Schedules are Available in a Group Bundle

If you want to get the Daily Schedule for the whole group, then these are available in a bundle of 3. So each bundle is a day of matches for the Groups. Group matches are allocated different days to ensure that each team has a break between games (typically 3 days between games).

How to win: the FIFA World Cup Predictor

As I write this, the headlines are screaming “Dream Over” for Qatar after they lost to Ecuador 3 – NIL in the kick-off and first game of the FIFA 2022 World Cup.

So as of this moment, Ecuador have added 3 points to the table for Group A and Qatar are still on 0.

Remember: there are 729 possible combinations once all 6 games of the Group Stage have been played. And there are still 5 games yet to be played for Group A.

There is no easy way to predict who will win. But Qatar, ranked 50th seed by FIFA and supported by a strong home crowd on home territory, may still find their pathway to victory!
