Premier League players at the 2022 World Cup: Ronaldo, De Bruyne, Kane and all the stars of England’s top flight

The countdown to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is a big one for Premier League fans as the clubs’ rivalries and loyalties will be tested throughout the tournament.

England’s top flight will bring over 100 players to the World Cup with familiar names from Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal all making a big presence.

Club fans will be praying for an injury-free competition for their stars, with fierce rivalries aside, as national teams come together and new supporters emerge, while international football takes center stage.

The Premier League will be on hiatus from November 12 until December 26 with a first winter World Cup grabbing headlines.

England are naturally the most represented team in the Premier League in Qatar, with 25 members of Gareth Southgate’s squad hailing from the English top flight, with Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham the only exception.
